OK, heres what im using:

Gigabyte EX58-UD5 motherboard
i7 Nehalem with Akasa Nero cooler
6GB Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600MHz 8-8-8-24 1.65v ver3.1 RAM
LG GGW-H20L & Sony DRU-870S optical drives
BFG GeForce 8800GTS graphics card
1TB HD

When I try and install Windows 7 64 or 32 bit or Vista it gets through the loading files part then when it gets to starting Windows the pc turns off

Ive tried 1 RAM stick changing it around in the DDR3_1 slot (white one on left)

Drives in SATA2_0 & SATA2_1 HD in SATA2_2

Tried optimized and fail-safe settings

I can get into the bios where the drives are listed, the temps all seem fine.

Anyone got any ideas where im going wrong here?

cheers

Could you try installing an open-source OS like Ubuntu? The aim is to find out whether there's something wrong with your hardware, or your software. Try using your Windows 7 installer on another computer, if possible.
