I will let it run overnight tonight. I'm still not getting +5V and +12V readings.

Sorry for the slow reply (I've been working all day), strange it won't show the 5V and 12V.

Run this graphics card stress test, it will only display the voltages too -

Not a problem. I appreciate all the help and advice you are giving me. I forgot to run the mem test last night so I will do it tonight. I will also try the gfx card test.

So really long pause on this. I have been really busy and haven't had much time to screw with my computer. What little use of my computer I have had lately I have just been dealing with the random restarts. I'm starting to get really annoyed again.

I ran the graphics card stress test and it passed fine on both the OCCT and MEMTEST. It is displaying my voltages off though, unless I'm reading this incorrectly? It is showing my 12V at under 6.5V and my 5V at 3.2V.. Attached are all the images received from testing.

Those voltages are most likely very wrong, OCCT tends to always post inaccurate voltages for some reason. The test shows you only ran the test for about 37 minutes, I would recommend running the test for a least a few hours.
