Reboot with Everest Stability Test - Stress Cache

Specs: Vista x64 Ultimate SP2

When I run the Stability Test with Everest, my PC reboots. I don't get a BSOD or a "check for solution online" option after I reboot. It only reboots when I check the "Stress Cache" option.
It also stated on the Stability Test the messages
"Warning: Hardware Failure Detected! Test Stopped"
"Stability Test Finished: -0.1 IPC"

The restarts don't occur just when I run the Stability Test, though. I also get restarts when I'm watching/streaming a video, surfing the web, or playing games.

I have no idea what this means. I'm just looking for someone to translate and/or give some advice or point me in the right direction. I've had about a dozen reboots in the past week.

Edit: It just froze again while I was watching a replay on WC3. The picture froze and I had to manually reboot the PC. Again, all I saw was after POST was "Windows didn't shut down normally." No BSOD, no "Windows has recovered from a problem," etc.
Very frustrating >_<

What do you mean by "improperly seated"? Did you mean "heated"?

It's not a new build. Almost all of my specs are in the original post. Phenom 9850x4 BE @ 2.5, watercooled, 8gb GSkill DDR2, 2x SSD 60GB in RAID0, ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe motherboard, OCZ 700W PSU, 2x 4870 512MB PCI-E 2.0 in CrossfireX x16

Have you OC'd this in the past or are you watercooling a stock CPU?

What is the PSU?

Just updated with PSU (I always forget that part >_<). No, I haven't really overclocked it. I was told I should, but I just don't know enough about it to do it safely. The only sort of overclocking that I have done was raising my RAM's voltage to 2.1 so I can get it's "advertised" DDR2-1066, in which they state their RAM can remain stable at.
When I first got the reboots, I immediately set all my BIOS back to default, uninstalled anything that may have an influence on the load. I'm just dumbfounded because my PC isn't giving me a clue as to what's wrong.

What are your temps? Use hardware monitor from cpuid, speedfan...or something to get your temps and monitor them...Post the temps here.

It doesn't look like it's a heating issue. It froze again while I was watching a video and I was looking at the temperatures the entire time. Nothing was overheating. Highest was the GPU VRM which went to 70 °C. CPU never went over 54 °C.

Those temps you posted....those are at idle? Or during Prime stress testing? I notice on that amd website that you linked...your processor has a max temp of 61 degrees.

I think you should do the testing in that one article provided by a member previously in this thread. Check your memory. Also, I can't seem to recall as i write this if you actually listed what PSU you just upgraded to...

I mean, when things go wrong after you make a change...
