PC continually rebooting?

General Processor Discussions - www.overclock.net
Alright, I've ran my head against the wall enough that it hurts, so I'll ask the fine people of OCN for some guidance.

My main rig (in sig) is having a continual shut down restart loop. It will go for long stretches and be fine, then will shut down and restart under load (gaming, hasn't mattered what), then randomly, then won't even stay on when in the BIOS. When I could get in, event viewer said event ID 41 task category 63. Things I've tried include:

-No OC on anything

-No BIOS setting messed with, save for what SSD to boot from

-GPU is now an EVGA 980 Ti SC (that was just a good deal, and it was doing this even with the old GPU)

-Power supply was the Corsair HX1050. Thought it was dying, so switched in the EVGA 850w (new), same issue

-Both RAM sticks in different slots, then one at a time

-Unhooked all hard drives, keyboard, etc

-Monitored CPU and GPU temps while it was working (no overheating issues, adequate cooling)

-Power from different surge protector, then straight from the wall

-Power from an outlet off a completely different breaker

-Memtest (came back clean)

-Checked all PSU connections to the board and to the PSU

-Verified nothing was touching the board and creating a short

-I've also had it at my parents place (different city), same issue

The only thing I'm not sure how to test is the motherboard. The LED screen never seems to through an error as far as I can tell, but is it possible the the motherboard is just on its way out? I bought it new, maybe in use for 4 years. I'm not sure what else it could be, but it definitely seems to be some sort of power issue. I don't have a spare motherboard, but I'm thinking about finding a cheap used one just to see if that fixes it. Any thoughts/ideas appreciated. While it's a good excuse to upgrade (and wouldn't cost much), I'd rather not if I could help it '); }
