I bought a new gaming computer about two weeks ago. After assebling it for the first time (without graphics card since it didn't ship yet) the computer beeps where : Long Short Short. Which I googled and corresponded to a graphics card error. I thought it was because I still did not plugin the GPU. When the GPU arrived, still the same beeps. I google for more info, and read that it could also be the RAM. I tested every single stick, tested with a RAM from the another computer. Still the same beeps, but when I stick the originals back. The computer was working!

I installed Win 7, Dead Space 3. After playing the game for 15 minutes the computer crashed. I install some temp monitors to check for overheating, but there was none. It was restarting sometimes after 5 minutes, then 3, but everytime it was restart sooner and sonner at the point where I could not boot into windows anymore. So I decided to deassamble and reassemble de computer which temporarily fixed the problem.

After playing the game for 5 hours, the same issue appeared. Now the computer restarts every time it boots into windows 7.

I thought it might be a software issue, so I tried formatting the computer but it crashed when booting on Windows 7 installation CD. I formatted the drive from another computer. But it still crashes when reading the CD.

I have a feeling that this is a motherboard issue, but I don't know how to test this. Or a CPU issue.

Please help me, I've been trying to fix this for 2 weeks.

Graphics: EVGA 02G-P4-3660-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16
Motherboard :ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX
CPU : AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core
