That is certainly strange.

Recently I remember telling a friend to replace he CMOS battery when his pc would only power cycle!

I know it may seem wierd but it's a fairly cheap thing to try first before you start thinking about possible hardware replacements.

What I would suspect is the motherboard based of previous experience with Asus, it's why I never buy Asus motherboards anymore.

However if the CMOS battery is not the issue, take some time strip the pc out of the case if possible and rebuild it on a box and see what happens, another stupid thing that has happened in the past is, my brother in law built a pc and when the temp's started to rise in the case the pc would reboot, even though all the components were well within spec temperature wise.

Completely random things I know but when something seems strange look for strange answers they might just fix it
