PC shutsdown after 2.30 minutes

Ok this morning my antec 300 case arrived.

I moved all of my components to my new case fired her up and after about 2.30 minutes (Not exact) it just reboots.

I looked in the windows event viewer and it just says that there was a power failure. So i swapped the PSU into my missus rig but it works flawless, hers in mine again 2.30 minutes-ish it reboots.

Ive tried the usual pushing down of components and checking leads to no avail, Anyone got any ideas?

Cheers

Not seen a power failure thing in the event thing b4 myself.

I'd be suspecting a possible short somewhere. I know it's a pita, but if u can setup the rig outside of the case and make sure it's working still, it would almost certainly point to how ur mounting it in the case.

It is possible u've damaged something in the moving process - but that is extremely rare. Even rarer for an enthusiast.

Yeah i can see how i would have damaged anything every thing almost inc the missus was covered in anti-static mats. As you said though its possiable.

Yeah power failure in event viewer must be new in Windows 7 dont remember ever seeing it in Vista.

In the proc of moving everything out of the rig and laying it out now...

EDIT: Ok i went out for a smoke and now my PC has been up for 20 minutes, About to run a Prime95 and see what happens
