I didn't want to mention this yet as it was worst case scenario for every time I've seen this fixed in the field...

Replace the motherboard. Everything will stay on unless the motherboard specifically tells it's attached components (drives, cards, and psu) to turn off. Everything that needs to be done TO shut down has been done (hence the screen turning blue in this case) but the board isn't giving the command to the addons and the voltage pulse to the PSU.

Do you still have your old CPU? Try swapping it back in and seeing if it works. If it works ok, then your CPU is most likely to blame for your troubles.

Also wouldn't hurt to remove anything non-essential and do a startup-shutdown cycle and see what happens.

Non-essentials: extra hard drives, sound cards, network cards, usb devices, non-essential case fans (if you leave the case open when you do the test, you could probably disable all the case fans if you're just doing a quick cycle.

Is the processor overclocked by any chance?

Alright. If you swap the processor and it works just fine, then it may be the processor causing you problems. If it's still new enough to swap out from whomever you bought it from, I would and give it another whirl. If you STILL have the problem, it may be either A) your board has other issues that only arise when the 965 is being used or B) the board can't really handle it for whatever reason.

I'd think it'd be closer to A.

OK stay tuned as I did a W7 repair and things are so far so good. Still have the BSOD on some starts but normal boots about 75% on second try. System is shutting down better but more time is needed.
