Do you know how? Just remove the battery on your motherboard and leave it out for a while. Since waiting time ranges from 30 seconds to 10 mins or longer.

When you overclocked, what voltage did you give the CPU, and what speed was the RAM running at?\\

When the computer restarts for me, I usually lack vcore.

Have you considered the possiblity that it is your PSU? Maybe you aren't getting stable voltages, causing it to randomly restart. Happened to me on my older weak no-name PSU. Id take out as much as possible ( mainly your X1950pro, as video cards take a lot out of a PSU), just to troubleshoot it. If you can get the rig running as "light" as possible, then test for instability.

If you really think it's the memory, check out memtest86. Read up on it to understand how it works, then let it run for a couple hours. I'd run it overnight, to be sure. It will tell you if the ram is erroring for sure.
