Over the last few months, my pc will shut off randomly. No bsod, no logs crash files nothing to say what's going on. Most of the time after a shut off the computer will fail to boot.multiple times. Not even post to bios. After a day or more and trying diffent things. I will get the computer to boot. Which will keep computer running for a week maybe two before same thing happens. Have ran memtest86 which passed. Have replaced the psu. Samething is still happening.  happen to be looking at Temps one time when comp shut off. All were normal. Cpu 35c motherboard was around 28c graphics card around 60c. 

Have disconected all external devices. Tried to boot but still a no go.

 

Not sure what to try next. Any suggestions would be helpful.

 

Specs:

I7-5930k (running sock)

32gb corsair ram (4x 8gb)

Rog exteme v 

Evga gtx 980

Evga 750w psu (less than two weeks old)

Before that 1000w evga psu

I am running a h100-I 

 

Don't know if this matters but thought I would add them in

850 pro sSD

Some cheap 1tb ssd

Your motherboard has 2x 7 segment displays in the upper right, see if you can grab the numbers on those the next time this happens.

 

BIOS update might be useful since you're on the X99 paltform.

the q-code is 79, which is csm initialization, at least this time. other times this has happened the code has been 69 and what i guess to be 6d. this model of board also has four led lights for each step of post. some times it will flash cpu, then dram and restart. then it flashes cpu, dram, vga and restarts. the hardest part of getting the code it the board just keeps restarting. if it posts or not. last night while trying new things. it would post come up on bios, then restart 10-20 seconds later. 

 

i did update bios to the newest verison about two weeks ago, it did nothing.

I was getting 6* when my CPU was malfunctioning, ended up getting an RMA with Intel no questions asked. It's not likely, but do you have another processor you could test in that motherboard :\

Have you tried a new power supply?  Mine was randomly rebooting and shutting off last year.  Bought a new power supply and have not had a repeat since then.  Hopefully you can find the problem soon.
