I take it this means you are not going to complete my request.

Have a nice day.

I'm not sure what your request was. I thought you just wanted to know what PSU my system was ruining which was in my reply.

Ruler try this
Using HW Info
PART A:
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section (Nuvoton) with VBATT is a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages. There are other section titles and one that pops up often is ITE
Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.
See this for the rail voltage info
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/power-supply-specifications-atx-reference,3061.html (Section 2.)
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
PART B:
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.


Just use PART A: and post back the shot of the PSU section as it will also give us the CMOS volts (Vbat)

Here is the screenshot for voltages while at rest

And here it is under load


I can also verify the PSU fan is running. I'm not sure how to check the water pumps, the fans are so much louder it's impossible to hear them. I can confirm they have lights on though. This is all at idle, I'll try putting it under load and if/when it freezes check again.

Volts read ok mate now an old plumbing trick to hear that pump going - get a long screwdriver or similar solid rod but a screwdriver is best. Now gently place it (the driver blade) on the pump casing and then place your ear or the bone just in front of the ear against the driver handle - it should be emitting some sort of sound like a whirring / rushing sound If there is nothing then the thing is seized. Also it should feel relatively cool to the touch - again if it is hot then same thing.

I can confirm now that the CPU Pump is running and ever so slightly cool to the touch, I couldn't test either of the graphics cards. I was wary about putting metal potentially in contact with an exposed, running graphics card board, and I'd have to move the computer to get to them. If we really think that could be it though I can try.

Well no don't place metal anywhere near the GPU's mate instead get hold of say some plastic knitting needles - one of those really thick ones if you can - my partner uses 20mm ones from time to time the same principal will apply. Also look in the kitchen drawer for plastic utensils

Even a thin-ish wooden spoon may suffice and anything you put inside the case make sure you ground it first - should have mentioned that before.

I ended up using a wooden spoon as you suggested with the fans on low and I can definitely hear pump noises from both of them.

Any ideas what's causing this then. My current theory is a problem with the processor, but I'm not sure. My main supporting evidence is that it crashes under CPU load and that when it fails to POST the CPU light stays on. I guess this could also be a motherboard issue, but CPU is easier to replace so I'll hope it's that if anything.
