So I will be trucking along and all of a sudden it will reset. Its like it loses power. I have a 1000w fairly new PS. But the 2500k is like 4 years old and the mobo probably 1.5years.

You think the overclock has finally wore my hardware down? Where do i start? lowered the oc to 4.3 and still doesnt help.

Check if any capacitors are swollen.
Google your mobo, there could be a known issue.
I did this on mine last year and it was bad IC's ... black screen. I sent the mobo the Gigabyte and they fixed it.

I see bios version for P8Z77-V LK

BIOS 1402 Improve memory compatibility.

also that power supply ?

if bios needs updating, use the Asus suite software to do so

you will see bios version on a cold boot or hit Del or F2 to check

The PS is less than a year old 1000w coolermaster. I can't see it failing. Another odd thing, when it does shut down sometimes you have to wait a bit. Unplug it, and cycle it on and off for 2minutes.

Black Screen has many variables,

examples are:

cpu overheating
videocard failing
psu failing
motherboard failing
ram failing.

Cant be a heat thing. Everything is liquid cooled. If anything its mobo or ram. Ill just keep using it until it wont turn on. That psu is supposed to be bullet proof.
