Are we looking at a faulty motherboard here then?

My PC is barely booting, and if it does it pretty much blue screens straight away.
Could also be RAM voltage, Buggy BIOS, mobo, or power, heat.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Apologies for the poor comms over the last few days.

I ended up just sending my motherboard back to where I bought it for proper testing, it was returned with no fault found. Since setting it back up my pc has worked like a charm!?!?! I cannot explain it, something must've changed. Yes I have installed windows again fresh but I had done that before and the issue persisted. Still, fingers crossed I am back up and running.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions, although I can't really explain why my system has decided to work again, I have learnt quite a few things on this journey!

Thanks again.
