Foxconn A75M
Corsair 2*4gb XMS3 RAM,
Kingston 64GB SSD,
Seagate 500GB HDD

What OS are you on right now? Have you tested your ram? – Journeyman Geek Aug 3 '12 at 7:27

Many customers have stated that this board has an issue with instant and continuous reboot problems.

The manufacture has replied that updating the bios will fix the issue.

The source is from one of my favorite spots Newegg. See link to your board and read reviews.

Bios update is your remedy and contacting their support team looks effective and logical.
