New Build Keeps Restarting Randomly...

Within about a week or so of having it all completed I found it would freeze and then restart. The system can be on for 5 hours or 5 minutes, still happens. Desktop freezes, then it sounds like it forced shut down, then restarts...

These are my components :
CPU - AMD Athlon II X4 750K 3.4GHz Quad-Core
MB - Asus A88XM-A Micro ATX FM2+
GPU - Asus Radeon HD 7790 2GB
PSU - Corsair CXM 500W Modular 80 PLUS Bronze
RAM - Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB 1600MHz (2x4gb)

I replaced my PSU and RAM to my original build (due to suggestions elsewhere) still restarting -.-

On the CPU box says, "Socket FM2 - REQUIRES DISCRETE GPU" I checked their website for discrete GPU compatibility but my CPU didn't appear in the list.

I've read the MB manual, I've put the RAM slots in DIMM A1 and A2 (A1 is blacked coloured and A2 is yellow), CPU and MB both supports Dual Channel, but CPU-Z isn't saying so :\

Try installing the RAM into the same colored slots (A1 & B1- black OR A2 & B2-yellow)

I've cleared RTC RAM, taken battery out for 30 seconds, put back in and put RAM in different sockets, A1 and B1, running dual channel now.
