    Computer Restarting Randomly?


           I recently moved from AMD to Intel (yay!), but I'm having issues. While I can run taxing programs flawlessly, and games at ultra settings, but it is only temporary. After a time (ranging from 2 hours to as little as 10 minutes) my computer restarts. The problem has only started since I swapped my Motherboard and CPU. In my troubleshooting exploits, I've turned off hyper-threading, re-installed windows, re-installed device drivers, re-installed BIOS, swapped RAM slots, swapped PCI-E slots (for GPU), used different PCI/EPS cables and reset my CMOS, but the restarting only became more frequent. Any help (or constructive criticism) would be much appreciated!!!!
