Constant computer crashing! HELP!

So, I run a custom built computer, with an i7 2600 CPU, 8gb of strontium RAM, an strontium 15gb SSD, etc etc, 6 months down the track, my computer kept crashing, like a power outage, and would reboot by itself, this happened so frequently that it literally became a boot cycle, and would crash upon start up, no crash dump files have been created, it would reboot by itself 100 times in 20 minutes, after a few days, my SSD had fried itself, and I got it replaced, when I had it replaced and computer formatted, the system also crashed at the start, consistently, for the first 2 days, and then it was fine, now 3 months down the track the same thing occurred, I asked for a replacement SSD, instead of strontium went with agility 3, 120gb, I thought the problem was the SSD, but now after getting it replaced, the crashing is continuously happening, sometimes won't crash for 15 minutes, sometimes 6 times within a minute like a power outage, within the case is very clean, anyone have any solutions or possible ways to fix this?! Please help!

Yes I have, and it's not a BSOD, it's just a black out crash, with auto reboot..

First of all go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System and click Advanced System Settings in the left pane. Under Startup and Recovery click settings and make the changes shown in the snip below. This will prevent the machine from constant rebooting and create a small dmp file if you have a BSOD. If you can't enter w7, tap F8 during startup, Advanced boot options will open, choose Safe Mode with networking and do the above.

I think you have a bad PSU, it has some very poor reviews. It may have fluctuation in 12V output and causing the shut down/reboots. Chieck within your BIOS, hardware monitor ir the like, for voltages.

This http://www.hwinfo.com/download32.html will provide among other things, a voltage monitor, the download link is near the bottom of the page.

Also my Bios temps and voltage are: All in Celsius

Processor - 61 Degrees
PCH - 43
Memory - 26
VR - 31

+12.0V = 12.14V
+5V = 4.99V
+3.3V = 3.34V
Memory vcc - 1.58V
Processor vcc - 1.22V
PCH vcc - 1.08V

I see you missed my post info about not having the machine restart automatically.
HWinfo shows the CMOS battery on you board needs replaced.
The video was not helpful, seeing the monitor would be.
