Motherboard Causing Reboots?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just recently (past week), my computer has started doing random reboots. It normally happens after 4-6 hours of idle time. I kind of remember people having the same problem with this motherboard, is that true?

Here's the things I ruled out.

-Windows Power Management; it's on "always on"
-Overclocking; runs stable and cool for 24hrs. of Blend testing


The rebooting has never occurred while I was using the computer, it's normally in the middle of the night. What could be causing this?

Thanks in advance.

some setting in the bios that might be telling the motherboard to restart after a certain time of.
