I didn't think it was but wanted confirmation.
We have checked
The only issues left at this point is either the MOBO or the PSU.
You have tried it in a different outlet
With and without a surge protector.
That takes out the possibility of electrical brown outs or spikes.

The one thing you can check is to see if maybe a Capacitor is leaking or bulging.
Capacitors look like mini tootsie rolls standing on their ends. I am including two pictures. The bottom picture you see the little blue things that stick up... those are the capacitors. Yours may be blue, black or grey.

Hmmm I suspect this may have been the cause all along?...heat building up in the psu and
shut off mechanism?
ok hopefully this solves the problem!
the testing continues!....
