This unfortunately could be caused by a cable that is somewhere out of site such as beneath the MB
For an initial check I would disconnect all power and peripheral cables from the computer and remove the opposing side panel of the case, the space below the MB there is often used to conceal unused cables that are intended for items such as additional front USB ports and card readers etc, these can sometimes cause system shorts if the protective insulation has been damaged/melted by heat or nicked by a sharp edge.
Apart from the above I would check that the MBs backplate is snugly fitted (it earths the MB and USB ports etc) that all cooling fans are mounted securely, that they are securely connected to the headers on the MB or PSU, the front case switch connections are securely attached to the front panel header on the MB and the same with all drive, USB, add on cards and audio port connections.
If you cannot resolve the issue by way of the above you may need to do a bare bones set-up outside of the case.
You checked the Ram but if you have an add on video card was that also removed and reseated securely.

Hopefully you will have no further problems with it.
