  1. I have just put an asus p775 motherboard and i5 processor into my PC, reinstalled all components with no issue, PC rebooted fine back into OS (Windows 7), after anything between 10 mins and half hour the PC just switches itself off, any thought would be welcome

    Is your CPU temperature running high?...Is the heatsink properly connected?...

    You should be able to check your CPU temperature in the BIOS.
