No, don't run it with Microsoft drivers. Microsoft drivers will not make the computer cut off, freeze or crash unless they have been corrupted, altered or changed in some way. I would give it a little more time and consider a reinstall.

Check your MB Manual about the location of standoffs. There should be a standoff for each hole, but no standoffs that don't line up with a MB standoff hole.

A reinstall of Windows? I checked the manuals that came with motherboard and there was no info about standoffs or their locations. I marked the standoff locations on this picture in red. In the top right of the picture there is a standoff not screwed down to the case, circled in green is the closest standoff on the case.

The one circled in green shouldn't be there. I can't say it is hurting anything, but why take chances. The question is, are there any standoffs under the board that do not line up with a hole in the board? There should be none.

There weren't any extra standoffs under the board.

That was my concern. But it seems you are having some other problem, which is not a BSOD problem. It sounds more as an electrical problem, to me. Perhaps you have a short somewhere or a PSU problem or something else.

I have changed the PSU recently and have had the problem with both of them. What parts of the computer should I be looking at if I want to find the source of the electrical short.

Definitely a hardware problem. Did you build the computer, as in "assembling parts"? If so, the first thing I would check is for overheating CPU due to bad thermal paste placement. You can monitor the CPU temp for a while and see if it raises before shutoff.

I'm assuming you removed drives and video card prior to taking the photo. If the CPU checks, try running with just the onboard video (card removed) and see if it still shuts off.

If I may I noticed some things in the picture in post 23

Lower left corner of picture I don't see a cpu power plugged in. I'm think that is either a 4 or 6 pin socket. Just to the right of the lower left screw circled in red.
I have no idea how things work without cpu power.

Red, yellow, black wires seem to be caught between the case and the I/O panel.

cow8duck do you have a knowledgeable friend that can help you install your hardware? What case are you trying to install this motherboard in. It's not in your specs.
It's very hard for Steve and I to see everything from behind our keyboards.

I don't have a dedicated gpu just using the built in graphics in the cpu. I'll check out what temperature the cpu is running at. In the picture I posted I removed all wires from the motherboard to show standoff locations, but I do have the 4 pin cpu cable plugged in. CPU is running at 60-70 degrees Celsius when it shuts off.
