    Is it overclocked?

    When did you last clean out the fans in the case?

    Can you download HWMonitor and look at your temps please? Fire up the temp monitoring software, then the offending game, and play it for a few minutes while it records temperatures, then let us know what they are.

    How old is the computer, and what make and model is the power supply?
    Also, how old is the power supply?
