I would recommend you to test the system out of the chassis using minimal configuration. Please use the onboard video.
Check with the motherboard manufacture if they have a new BIOS available.
Then, start adding one component at the time until you find the conflicting one.
Switch components to narrow the issue if possible.
Make sure you are using correct memory specifications; this processor supports DDR3 1333/1600 MHz 1.5V. http://ark.intel.com/products/65523/Intel-Core-i7-3770K-Processor-8M-Cache-up-to-3_90-GHz?q=%20i7-3770K
