    Default X79-UD3 Random Restart Problem

    Dear Sirs,
    Firstly I would like to mention that I'm not extremely good with computers so kindly excuse my 'noobiness'. I am running the following setup:
    Motherboard: Gigabyte x79-UD3
    BIOS Version/Date: American Megatrends Inc. F18, 12/17/2013
    SMBIOS Version: 2.7
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3820 CPU @ 3.60GHz, 3601 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
    OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
    Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
    Video Card: Radeon HD 6950 (1GB)
    RAM: 4x 4GB DDR3 Cosair Vengeance
    HD: 60 GB Cosair Force 3 SSD
    1 TB Western Digital SATA3
    Keyboard/Mouse: Logitech G510/M175
    PSU: Antec 750W

    Around May'14 I began getting random restarts every few hours while my PC was on, active or inactive. The frequency of these restarts kept increasing over a period of 3 weeks, until it came to a point where my PC did nothing but restart over and over with no display on my monitor. I called up my tech guy and he told me to take my Mobo to gigabyte. I got a replacement Mobo in 15 days, however it began giving me restarts (one every few hours) on the very first day. I took it back to them and they blamed it on the heatsync, they applied a new heatsync and the core temperature went down, my pc didn't restart for the 2 hours they kept it there for testing. So i figured all was fine and brought it back home.
    However after a couple of weeks the restart problem started yet again, it restarts once every few hours and it really pisses me off. I am unsure if this is a hardware problem or a software one. Googling suggested it could be BioS related however I do not possess the knowledge to diagnose that on my own. Hence I kindly request you to help me out.
