    There might still be some motherboards around with dodgy electrolytic capacitors.

    Inspect all the electrolytics - look for bulged or split tops or electrolyte stains on the board under the caps. Another sign is a slightly sunken top, if the cap runs hot it can vent some of the electrolyte through the seal, when it cools a vacuum is caused in it.

    If the motherboard looks OK, check inside the PSU box for the same thing - while you're at it, check the fan turns freely and isn't obstructed by compacted dust.

    Other causes of rebooting/crashing include lack of heat transfer paste under the CPU cooler or maybe failing RAM.
