Windows 7: New Build: PC freezes, hard shutdown and then restart.

Windows 7 Professional 64 BIT

And it happened again, I was laying down taking a nap when I heard the PC suddenly shut down, stayed off for a good 5 seconds then powered back on. I'm starting to believe I might have a faulty motherboard. I replaced the PSU, replaced the CPU, replaced the RAM, replaced the hard drive, and replaced the GPU

Figured I'd resurrect the thread. The new SSD did nothing to resolve my issues and the shutdowns have gotten even more frequent. I ended up with two hard shutdowns over the past two days. One while I was at work and the other while I was sitting here playing a video game on my 360.

I decided to go ahead and buy a brand new case and motherboard. NZXT Phantom 530 Black ATX Full Tower and ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard.

Will do an install of them once I get them shipped here from Newegg. I am hoping that this will finnaly fix my problems

Just want to let everyone know who helped out in this thread that all my troubles are behind me. I ended up building a new machine. Specs are below. The machine has been running wonderfully since I did install and setup. It seems it was the Asus motherboard after all. Thanks again to everyone for the help
