Try going into BIOS and disabling the restart on failure option. Then you should be able to read the screen, but it sounds like bsod to me

Are you getting any beep codes/errors? check your ram and graphics card. are you overclocking your card? you may need have made your system unstable.

Have you guys seen his underload CPU temps?! Of course it's turning itself off. The shutoff temp should be around 70c. Please check if your CPU cooler is properly attached. And if it is clear out all the dust from the fans etc.

Crumbs I hadn't looked at his specs, that is rather hot, did you apply thermal paste when you fitted your cpu? this also points to OVER CLOCKING.
