    With all of my games after like 10 min they freeze. I found when i leave the case open i dont have a freezing problem, so i thought it was a over heating problem, so i added to fans to it and closed the case and it started frezzing again, does anybody know what could be doing this ?

    does the problem happen in other processor or video card intensive settings? does your video card have enough space around it for adequate cooling?

    Is any part of your computer overclocked in any way? If so, reclock it back down to its normal settings.

    Just because you have added more fans doesn't mean that there actually helping. If you could add one just above the graphics card sucking outwards that may help. If your Graphics card has a fan on it make sure it's working ok. Also, is the PCI slot below the graphics card empty? if you can try to make sure it is.
