in your shoes I woulkd go for a bench test




go to the "building" forum here in TSF hardware section

there is a sticky at the top called "bench test"

pull your mobo out of the case and try that

I suspect something metal is touching your case & motherboard ( i hope)

i didnt need and unplugged the extra dvd drive and it seemed fine
https://www.putfile.com/pic.php?img=6204247

so i plugged the dvd back in and it crashed straight away when the log in screen came on. I then had a look at the back of both my drives and realised they are both set to master, so that probabaly caused some problems..
