My System Specs

Thing is, shaking the case is relatively safe to trying to shake my motherboard. Besides, I'm nearly 100% sure it has something to do with a grounding fault - so isolating the motherboard won't solve the issue here.

I'm basically saying the heat + the case together create this issue.

Also, under what basis would you assume its the power supply? Hmm...perhaps I'll give the power supply a shake sometime. I'm also making the assumption that the shaking of the case causes the reboot in the same manner that causes the reboot of my computer, which may not be the case.
Under the assumption that you've got open ends on your cables now that you've cut off the molex connectors. Unless you've individually shielded each wire in the cable with something better than electrical tape, I'd guess that something is shorting out.
