Ambient temperature according to the board is 24C. HDD1 temp is 28, HDD2 temp is 29, HDD3 temp is 28. HDD4 temp is 32. I touched the RAM, its room temperature, no heat, the air coming out the back of the machine is cool and all the fans are clear.
my CPU is currently doings its automatic overclock, I could turn that off but the CPU temp and voltages look good. It OC's itself from 2.4 to 2.5 ghz, and I can use the Asus AI boost to have it safely go to 2.7 GHZ without any power or heat issues. I could definitely try it but I don't see the connection between that and my computer restarting when I walk passed it. Also, strangely, I have never had it restart when I am actively using the machine and working it hard, such as playing games. It has only ever died when watching a movie.

Perhaps if it is still restarting itself Friday night, I will quickly hop into the BIOS and change the setting, its worth a try.
