Question about ASUS P4B533-E (P4B533-E/L/1394) Motherboard
A faulty memory board OR failing memory slot can also cause spontaneous rebooting. Try removing/swapping memory boards, so that all combinations of the (up to) 3 boards to the 3 slots are fully tested and yo ucan isolate whether the problem moves with the memory board or stays consistent to the slot(s - you may have multiple problems with more than one card and/or slot!).
A useful approach is to make a grid chart with the cards (labeled A, B, C) across the top and slots (listed as 1, 2, 3) along the side, and track your test results consistently. Be sure to complete all possible permutations so that you have the most information to determine your results by, as a premature decision can lead you to a incomplete and possible more expensive conclusion!

To me it does not sound like an overheated CPU...but could be. My best guess would be the powersupply shorting out. I had repaired a computer that was doing something similar to what you are describing and it turned out to be the power supply unit. I would try swapping out the power supply from another computer if you have one and see if it still has the same problem. If it does then you can disconnect the cd-rom drive and see if it stops the problem. It is possible that one of the hardware components is the cause. Also check the motherboard screws that hold the board to the case are tight. If they are loose this can cause a grounding issue with the computer. Also use a can of compressed air to clean out the inside of the case of dust and dirt...this can also cause problems.
