Systems reboots continuously and then turns off

Hi,

I am having trouble with my system. It keeps rebooting continuously and then turns off. Sometimes if I leave it off awhile it will boot up correctly but it still might freeze up. I thought it was the motherboard so I replaced my Gigabyte motherboard to an Asus. I do have anything connected to the new motherboard except the power supply, cpu fan, monitor and keyboard. The only thing is the same is a 700W OCX ModXStream-Pro power supply. Could the issue be the PSU? I have a I7 2600K CPU. I would like to know if it's possibility before buying a replacement. Also when it reboots it sats power surge error and i have to turn on/off the PSU. Thank you.

David

  1. try bread boarding it

    take the mb/cpu/RAM/graphics card out of the case and lay it on a dry wooden bread board ,

    Connect the psu , and a monitor

    boot by touching the tip of a screwdriver on the front panel power pins momentarily

    is it the same?
    is there a speaker on the mb so you can hear bios beeps? Get one

    Try and use a different PSU, sounds like its on its way out. Can you recall any changes/faults in the system the weeks following this particular fault?
