    It sounds like either a power supply problem of some sort or possibly a problem with the motherboard.

    I literally just encountered a problem like this on my own build. Turns out the power cord going into the power supply was all wibbly wobbly. Aside from an obvious problem like that, I would venture to say you have a power supply problem. If you have a spare, switch em out and see what happens. If not, try loading your system with one stick of ram. I'm not sure if you've screwed with your BIOS, and by no means Am I saying that you have, but the more components you test, the more of a chance you have at pinpointing the problem.
