Exclamation Yikes problems with my first NEW BUILD =(

I just built my pc yesterday. The specs are: i5 3570k, Gigabyte z77x-ud3h, corsair vx550watts, corsair 550d case(with 3 stock case fans), noctua nh-c14 heatsink, 8gb kingston hyperx KHX1600C9D3K2 (ddr3), and the crucial m4 128gb. The problem I'm having is that my computer would boot up fine and go to desktop no problem.... BUT THEN in a few minutes it shuts down and reboots itself RANDOMLY....reboot reboot reboot, the same thing happened over 20 times already literally....(was just making sure the first few reboots wasn't updates or anything)

1. I place the 2 ram sticks in the slots are the recommended for dual channel config (from manual)
2. I updated the bios from F7 to F11(latest)
3. The system doesn't have the reboot problem mention above when in safe mode
4. I didn't mess around in bio, other than changing the boot order to install windows 7 ultimate on dvd
5. The system ran fine during the ~20 mins of windows 7 installation
6. I booted into safe mode to look at the event logs and the problem seems to be "kernel power
event 41" listed as "critical"

I'm realllllly stumped! =( Can anyone help me, PLEASE??
