The crashes aren't like crashes I've seen before. The monitor(s) lose connection and go into standby mode, and the keyboard and mouse lights go off so i assume they lost power. The case fans and light stay on though which leads me to believe it's a motherboard problem. There are no error messages. I can be doing anything, high or low cpu/gpu usage. I have even been having crashes immediately after the bios screen before win7 even shows up. So far I have tried the win7 memcheck on startup and on taken all pieces out and re-seated them including removing old thermal paste and putting new stuff on as well as updating all drivers.

windows 7 64 bit
ASUS m4a87TD/USB3 motherboard
Phenom II x6 CPU
Hitachi 1TB 7200rpm Hard drive
3x2 gigs of g.skill RAM
Nvidia Geforce gtx 460 GPU

Any help is appreciated and feel free to ask for more information if I have forgotten anything.

Power supply make and model? Also was it new with the build or re-used from a previous build?
