    Could be a few things that cause this but I've found that the most common cause is a short between the mainboard and the chassis. Try using some sort of fiber grommet under the mounting screws that attach the mainboard to your case.

    or you've dislodged your cpu fan (although that usually takes longer than 1 sec)

    Could be almost anything at this stage, cpu, ram, video card .... after switching to 230v it could be everything including the new motherboard. You could try swapping the ram from another system to see if it helps.

    Yeah, you definitely need to get each part tested to see what is up.
