ram: vengence 2x8GB DDR3
graphics card:evga geforce gtx 660ti

Well if you followed all the steps in the guide then the next suspect is the motherboard.

You say the CPU and PSU is known good - the next step would be to try the motherboard as rolli said. Fireup the PC barebones (mobo, ram, cpu, psu). If it goes straight through - it's something else. If it still continues to shutdown - it'd most likely be something on the mobo.

Just a longshot, once I had a problem like this right after an upgrade and it seemed that the power button on the chassis would kind of stick on the actual button and cause the PC to shutdown seconds after boot, I opened it again,and I moved something there. Putting it back into the correct place solved it.
