Thanks very much for input/ideas, i will have another go tomorrow, sadly i don't have access to spare parts, or a suitable working computer to use as test bed.
Fingers crossed, will keep you all updated.

Problem sorted, after trying all sugestions i was sure it was a "short" somewhere, but where?
It couldn't be the board shorting on case as symptoms were consistent in or out of the case (except the one random time it decided to work for a while).
So, i stripped all down to bare board, re-checked/re-seated CPU and decided to try with stock intel cooler.......long story short, it started first go...woo hoo.
So i looked carefully at Gellid mount and decided it must be causing a short between CPU and cooler back support. A bit of head scratching and i came up with an insulation plan which involved fitting a "gasket" of insulating material between mount and board/cpu, i also insulated the outer metallic parts of the mount, and fitted insulating rubber washers between board and chassis.
All is well now and i'm well happy
Thanks soo much to all who supported and advised me through my first "birth", you were invaluable in keeping my hope alive when i was ready to give up.

Soo, i decided to have a go at o/clocking my new build and am running @ 4.7Ghz on CPU, WITH 1648Mhz on Ram, and 900Mhz Gpu clock/ 1120Mhz Gpu memory.
Am very happy with my results.
To make sure it all stays cool i have upgraded front 120mm case fan to a Red Apollish Vegas adjustable, rear case fan to an Asetek Extreme 92mm Adjustable, and moved my 80mm Antec Tri-Cool 3 speed case fan to the top panel of my case.......they can shift great quantities of air if needed.
