    i think i read a post here about something like this happening, i guess they were on XP tho, and instead of the blue screen of death appearing (crash screen) XP would just restart automatically, you might wanna check that out, and maybe who ever posted that original post i read could post here to clarify..;)

    Not having enough Ram could result in intensive swapping & slow overall performance, it should not result in reboots.

    The message you're getting with ASUS PC Probe, means the speeds reported for yoru Power & Chassis fan are below threshold. Go the PC Probe Settings & eventually lower the threshold or if you don't have any fans installed on the Chassis & Power fan connectors on the board, you can simply deactivate the warning for those values.

    We might need a little more info about your restarts. When do they occur ? Is it when the PC is inder full load or completely random ?
