    Um there are metal screws to screw down the mother board to your new case, check if there are extra ones behind the mother board, cause if there are then that means your mother board is being shorted out..and if that keeps happening = bye bye mother board.

    Assuming its not shorting out, which is possible, I suggest RESETTING the bios and disabling any fancy power options in your bios. Bad ram can also cause restarts and shutdowns as well as a PSU. If it's a driver causing the problems, which I doubt, you can always start your system in safe mode to see what happens. Thats were I'd start then try remounting the mainboard if that fails.
