Cyril, these tests will probably be of interest: pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/…

comment i7 4790K | Shutdown while running Prime95 and RealBench
Mine had a reset button on the board. Removing the battery should do the same thing. Haven't tried an in-UEFI reset sorry.

comment i7 4790K | Shutdown while running Prime95 and RealBench
I had an identical issue, but with a Gigabyte Z97X-UD5H. I put it down to a ridiculously aggressive auto overclock. Thought it was just Gigabyte but maybe the same here. The solution is to probably set a manual overclock so it doesn't up the voltage itself, but in my case simply resetting the BIOS/CMOS and loading "optimised defaults" fixed the problem.

comment Random artifacting during games after replacing GPU
Check CPU/GPU temps while gaming to make sure it isn't overheating. And yes, please post full specs.

comment Display not working even after trying new graphics card
Only reason I asked about PSU is some don't officially support the sleep state requirements for Haswell CPUs. But as you say if it's a new problem, and you rule out everything else, I guess it leaves the motherboard as the most likely cause. Hardest part to test though unfortunately :/

comment Display not working even after trying new graphics card
Hmm...when the problem occurs, do you see that BIOS/motherboard splash on reboot, or nothing at all? What is the power supply, and do you have a spare you could try? Have you tried unplugging everything but the bare minimum (a faulty drive, for example, can sometimes cause the weirdest things to happen).

comment Display not working even after trying new graphics card
What is the motherboard and graphics card make/model? It could be a physical issue with the PCIe slot on the board, or if the GPU needs PCIe power from the PSU, maybe that connector is faulty?

comment Computer stalling out during gaming and randomly restarting - I think its the power supply. New power supply's don't work?
Fans going crazy and random restarts sounds like it could be temps. Run HWMon or something to check them.

comment What is the reasonable choice of memory for DZ77GA-70K + Intel 3770K nowadays?
Not sure how this question was interpreted as merely a shopping recommendation? Surely the dot points imply it is looking for analysis on how to choose suitable RAM? "Reasonable choice" doesn't necessarily mean "tell me an exact model".

comment DDR3 SDRAM compatibility: clock speed and timings
Ah, it's a laptop. With desktop motherboards DDR3 incompatibility is relatively rare, and in general will downclock to something they can run, but I don't have enough xp with laptop boards to answer. Following the manufacturer specs -- as you're already doing -- is your safest option.

comment Symlinks over SSH: Why am I unable to access files/directories in parent directory if traversal to current directory was through a symlink?
I cannot reproduce what you're seeing. Are you sure you created a symbolic link (using ln -s)?

comment Virtualbox shared folder mounting not working
May not be able to help much more as I can't reproduce that problem. There are quite a few suggested fixes for that error around the net though. Maybe have a look at superuser.com/questions/725240/… and stackoverflow.com/questions/3492466/…, see if any of the suggested fixes help?
