Server rebooting itself

I did some digging... I too had bought the machine built by an integrator...
They however used DDR2 RAM that is 2.0V where as the motherboard spec calls
for 1.8V DDR2. I'm betting that is what my problem is, so I ordered some
DDR2 that was listed on the compatibility list from the MB mfctr. I'm hoping
that, as well as the BIOS update solves everything.
I'll let everyone know my result just for their own information.

As other wrote: it can be anything. I had a similair problem and it almost
drove me mad. It was a webhosting machine running 5.4, later 6.1 and up. The
machine was running Cpanel, a webhosting panel.
I've tried everything (memory testing, stress testing, etc etc): kept
rebooting. Just when I was at the point of actually stopping my webhosting
business (I just have that as a hobby), I swapped the dual Xeon Supermicro
that was giving problems with a really old dual P3 Dell 1650. It's been
running stable since then. Stable but slow. :)
Same for my backup machine, which was a self-built Dual Athlon MP (well,
built by a computer supplier). Swapped that for an old dual P4 Dell 2550
and: all is fine.
Doesn't help you much, except if you have some old Dell hardware laying
