Question about Intel D865GBF Motherboard
Go to the intel downloads and get intel active monitor for this mobo and check cpu temperature when rendering cpu may be overheating under extreme use. if that is the case, investigate cooling options such as a bigger heatsink/fan, I have seen this a lot with Prescott Processors. Could also be poor cpu to heat sink contact, get some arctic-silver from newegg and put it between cpu and heatsink. Power supply voltage dropping under load will also cause this, you can also monitor power supply voltages with Active Monitor.

Restarts are often power related. Either your power supply is failing or underpowered, or the voltage regulation modules on the motherboard are failing. Look at all the capacitors (they look like little batteries) on the motherboard and look for brown/orange seepage, if you see some then you will need to replace your motherboard.
Next to test your power supply, unplugg as many devices as possible, remove add-in network and sound cards, unplugg unnecessary USB devices, and rerun your job. If it reboots still then there is a good chance that your power supply is the problem.
Of course, like most computer problems, it is important to rule out software as the culprit. Since corrupted drivers and program files can cause Windows to reboot the computer. The easiest way for you to test this is to re-install Windows. A fresh install of Windows that still reboots will point out a hardware problem.
