    815E (mobo) questions

    First, experiencing spontaneous, random reboots for reason yet to be pinpointed. I'm assuming I just need to get a new motherboard, but not sure if it is heat-related or a software issue. Normally occurs after extended (for Windows, anyway) periods of uptime (around 2-3 days). Thoughts?

    Then, assuming the motherboard is crap, I'm looking at picking up an 815E... so, recommendations? I read the Abit Sa6R review here, but not sure if that's what I'm looking for. I would really like an i815 board, minus on-board sound and vid, if one exists.

    Current specs
    Windows 2K
    600e (factory hsf)
    asus p3bf
    20gb 7200 seagate barracuda
