I ran hard drive tune. 
Error Scan (tab) came back perfect but the Health (tab) came back with this error;

(C7) Interface CRC Error Count 99 99 9 11 - attention
Description: Number of interface communication errors 11
Status: There were communication errors. This may be caused by a damaged cable.

Is it possible that the randomly resetting or when running a browser for a long time or copying a large file from one drive to another etc etc is because of a bad HDD / SATA cable ?

If you have another cable around it would be worth a shot to try it, even if you took the one from your cd drive.

I never updated; I put in a brand new 850watt PSU.  I also did MemTest x86 and Windows Memory Diagnostics both came out error free; unfortunately the computer still resets at random, in other words; it can run for five hours straight but if I begin to do something as in copy a large file or do a system backup that is where it will lock up; or sometimes it decides to reset on it's own.
I've come to a conclusion; the motherboard ?

It could also be your hd is faulty, seems most of your problems are when you transfer files between drives, dl (hard drive tune) and see what it shows you . I'm not saying it's not your cpu or mb as they were running hot for a while but it won't cost anything to test the hd, and on the pro side of it you can use the new parts when you decide to upgrade.

+1 with ccoke,your system still has lots of life in it for gaming, a gtx 1060 with 6gb of memory will do just fine for 1080 game playing. Plus you could oc that cpu to get even more speed from it.

The ATX specification permits the 12V rail to be anywhere between 11.4V and 12.6V so technically 11.53V is acceptable.
The LSP Ultra is let's say at the lower end quality wise and regardless of your problems I'd replace it with a branded unit.

I have a good Cosaire 750 I could put in it but the wires are like 10 feet long, how are Cosaire psu in ratings ?

Try confirming power supply is OK with a meter first,.. by measuring Voltage,..Figure 3.18  "Back probing the power supply connectors"  http://www.informit....31105&seqNum=12

I did the back probe a while ago on the 12 volt sata connector and it read fine so it may be another problem, I wonder is it possible the bios got wanky because if I bump the memory up to 1600 mhz (which it is rated at ) or xmp profile it also won't boot, goes into boot loop.
