    This is my first time posting here, I'm hoping someone might have an idea as to what's causing my problem.

    2 days ago my computer instantly shut-down while I was using it, when I tried to turn it back on, the fans started to spin and then it instantly shut down again (shut down in less than a second).

    I took the side of my case off to see what code was being thrown, and all I get is '00' every time I try to start the system. Sometimes it will attempt to start again after failing; for example: I push the power button, the fans start to spin, less than one second later they stop, a couple seconds later the fans start to spin again then instantly stop (this repeats until the power is turned off at the wall).

    Other issues:
    Over the past couple weeks, I have been experiencing blue-screens, which were gradually becoming more frequent (roughly once every couple days). Some days I experienced multiple blue-screens and hangs (pc would freeze for a minute, then audio would freeze, then it would either resume, or in most cases lead to a blue-screen).

    Used roughly 8-12 hours per day ex weekends. Rarely shut-down; on almost 24/7.

    Things I've done since the problem:
    - Cleaned the interior and components of dust.
    - Checked for shorts.
    - Cleaned and reapplied thermal paste to CPU.
    - Removed RAM and tried booting with different configurations of sticks (same set, don't have any other RAM to test with).
    - Tried booting with GPU removed.

    Computer Specs:
    Memory: 4x Corsair Vengeance LED 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 PC4-25600C16 3200MHz Dual Channel Kit

    Storage: 2x Kingston HyperX Fury 480GB 2.5" SATA 6Gbps Solid State Drive (SHFS37A/480G)

    PSU: EVGA SuperNova G2 1600W '80 Plus Gold' Modular Power Supply (120-G2-1600-X3)

    GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming RGB 8192MB GDDR5X PCI-Express Graphics Card (GV-N1080G1 GAMING-8

    CPU: Intel i7-6850K 3.60GHz (Broadwell-E) Socket LGA2011-V3 Processor - Retail (BX80671I76850K)

    Motherboard: Asus X99-Deluxe II Intel X99 (Socket 2011) DDR4 ATX Motherboard

    I would really appreciate it if anyone has any ideas as to what else I could test, or what the problem may be.

    Have you check the PSU? That is a good place to start.
