I usually find that the sqlserv.exe will eventually consume all the memory if not rebooted perhaps once a week.

SQL Server is designed to use all the available RAM on a system. This is normal, and desired, as it improves performance by keeping data in RAM rather than having to read it from disk.

The only way to prevent this is to set a max server memory limit. Details are here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178067.aspx

There's no reason to ever reboot a SQL Server just to limit memory. Setting a max memory limit will take effect immediately, although memory may take a few minutes to free up.
