I guess I need to go back to the drawing board . . .
I replaced the old pwr supply with a new Seasonic 750 and everything looked good for over a week. Hence the delay in the thread. Then, it started to do the random power drop again.

So, now I'm wondering if:
A) I'm having brown-outs at my house (possible)
B) Motherboard is faulty

Thoughts?

EDIT:
Also did check anti-virus, reset ram, CPU temps were under 40C but reset cpu cooler also, full memtest (again) I'm getting frustrated.

Did you get any BSODs?.. did you run memtest?

yup on the memtest (one of the first things and done again here just two days ago).
oddly, no BSOD - I come back and the computer is back at log-in (and everything that I've been working on is gone), event viewer shows a loss of power. And that's part of the mystery - it's never done it when I'm using it. I always come back to it and find that it's dropped out.
