Random reboots are often the result of a bad power supply and a weak PSU can cause the CPU fan to underspin and cause CPU temps to rise and the reulting mobo thermal protection shutoff in the BIOS to kick in. Plug in another pSU borrowed from another system and see if you have the same issues. If not, it's the power supply.
