Hi guys, I just want to share my experience in order to help some fellas who have symptoms like mine.

I have an old setup : 3770k + Asrock z68 + 16gb ddr3 1866 + Seasonic G650W

The last 2 weeks I had some random reboot/shutdown sometimes on the boot step, sometime on windows and sometime ingame. First I tried to wipe all the o/c settings, testing the ram, testing with another PSU, without the GPU and the random reboots/shutdown still happen.

Yesterday I had an idea, is that possible that the CMOS battery is the problem? for me a dead CMOS battery give just a date/hour reset and that's it, but I find another brand new one, and Tadaaaa, everything fine!

The weird thing is that the only problems I had is the randoms reboot, I don't had any date/hour problems ou bios configuration losted.

So I you have an old setup and you have those random reboot/shutdown and you have already tested everything, try a 1$ brand new CR2032 battery and hope it can help you too.

ps : sorry for my english.
