    I'm still having trouble with my PC rebooting randomly, sometimes it doesn't reboot but simply locks up, Keyboard and mouse both loose power. Only happens when I have more than 512MB RAM installed. Also the hardware clock seems to change every so often to something completely random (I was on Moscow time yesterday) any thoughts?

    Usually the clock not keeping time is due to the MOBO battery. They are easy enough to replace these days and you can buy them just about anywhere. If it's a new board you may need to set a jumper to turn the battery on?

    As for the crashing problem, you might want to try lowering the RAM speed if there is a setting in the BIOS.
