    Keith do me a favour, if it keeps up long enough can you go into power settings and set something like this and try it.

    @Torquemada & @axe0

    couldnt even get this newest install of windows to fully boot.
    on restart I got to an error screen and it gave me the option to do another clean install.
    I did.
    went thru the initial questions, accepted the privacy policy, added u/n and password

    It loaded to "HI" and completely froze again

    You need to test your PSU, unplug it from the components
    Try to verify (as well as you can) that the PSU works. If you have a multimeter, you can do a rough checkout of a PSU using the "paper clip trick". You plug the bare PSU into the wall. Insert a paper clip into the green wire pin and one of the black wire pins beside it. That's how the case power switch works. It applies a ground to the green wire. Turn on the PSU and the fan should spin up. If it doesn't, the PSU is dead. If you have a multimeter, you can check all the outputs. Yellow wires should be 12 volts, red 5 volts, orange 3.3 volts, blue wire -12 volts, purple wire is the 5 volt standby. The gray wire is really important. It sends a control signal called something like "PowerOK" from the PSU to the motherboard. It should go from 0 volts to about 5 volts within a half second of pressing the case power switch. If you do not have this signal, your computer will not boot. The tolerances should be +/- 5%. If not, the PSU is bad.

    Unfortunately (yes, there's a "gotcha"), passing all the above does not mean that the PSU is good. It's not being tested under any kind of load. But if the fan doesn't turn on, the PSU is dead.

    If XMP is enabled in the Bios try disabling it. Page 51 of the manual. This'll set the memory speed to 2133mhz
