Here is a little background info:
I built this computer one year ago (first build for me) with all good quality parts...It went really smooth...i'm running:
-windows 7 64-bit
-500W rosewill stallion series power supply
-core 2 duo 2.8 ghz processor (E7400)
-Zalman cooling fan (arctic silver 5)
-4GB Mushkin Ram
-500GB WD Caviar Black hard drive
-Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P motherboard
-Nvidia graphics card...8900 GT 512mb
Pretty decent first build...its been great since i built it, no over clocking, just general gaming and use (school work, email, web surfing, media player) general computer use. SO its pretty annoying and weird it all of a sudden just crapped out. Could the PC have over heated...its been pretty hot in my apartment (ac is out)...so its regularly around 80 degrees F in my apt. Help me out guys, I want to trouble shoot tonight but I need some advice. Thanks for all the help.
Also to add, I borrowed a friends 650W corsair PSU and installed it. The same thing happens as described above, cycling turn on and turn off. I also tried the paperclip test with my original PSU and it works fine. So it must be my CPU or MOBO?
