Diagnosing periodic reboot?

My hobby FreeBSD box has started to reboot at semi-regular intervals,
and I can't figure out why.
There seems to be no warning, no message at the console and no
indication of (or, probably, I don't recognize) the problem at reboot.
This happened a few months ago, and for some reason I deduced that
the computer was getting too hot. I installed a better fan, and that
seemed to do it.
Now it's happening again, and I'm not sure I can blame heat.
What log files should I be looking at?
(BTW, hardware is a Shuttle SB51G enclosure with a 2GHz Intel
Celeron, circa Jan. 2003)
