system reboots software or hardware problems?

I am running a dual opteron cpu system and I am getting reboots when ever I stress the system I am not sure how to look at logs so I can tell if it is a hardware or a software problem.
the Linux I am using is a Debian based OS called Crunchbang.

Maybe it is overheating? Try opening computer case, blowing dust away, and than run stress test again. I run distributed computing project all the time and as long my computer is fit it won't reboot.

btw, Crunchbang is great OS. #!

my system under load wit hall 24 cores running Folding at home is about 32c . before I did a reinstall of the OS it ran 36 hrs with out any problems.
But I had read that if the OS was installed on ext3 I would get better numbers so I did that now I get reboots when the system is stress
