My PC keeps turning off cold for no reason.
Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3 mobo
Corsair GS600 PSU
NVidia Geforce GTX570 Galaxy
2x4GB Corsair Vengence Ram
SeaGate 7200RPM 1TB HD

Second mobo. First build Windows 7 64bit installed just fine along with Nortons and Skyrim. I ended bricking that mobo when power cut out during a BIOS Flash. Just installed new mobo w/o touching anything and it started cutting out again..Any suggestions?

Did you OC your cpu? Your 570 requires 550w minimum PSU and if you are upping the voltage to your cpu and gpu etc.. this could/would cause system instability with your 600w. You will most definitely need a bigger/better PSU to achieve a happy PC.
