Now I am suspecting a bad PSU mate or even RAM now one is not easy without measuring the rail volts with a digital multimeter and see how they come up for a reference the volts shuld read as per this
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.
Limits +/-
12v = 11.4 12.6v
5v = 4.74 5.25v
3.3v = 3.135 3.465v
The Power good signal voltage at pin 8 on the 24 pin plug (grey cable) should be the same as the 5v rail reading/s
See this for the rail voltage info
Power Supply 101: A Reference Of Specifications - Power Supplies (Section 2.) (Part of a small ditty I wrote for using when the machine running. Fot the colour codes of the cables see this
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_...unit_(computer) - scroll down to see them on the 24 pin plug

For the RAM use this but make sure you run it for at least 8 passes unless errors come up straight away then you can stop it. It is the only memtest we recommend and as stated must run for 8 passes or you may as well not bother. RAM - Test with Memtest86+ Just so you know this runs in a non Windows environment so will not be affected by any of it's issues that may be prevalent.
