I have been having problem with my computer overheating for a really long time now...When I first got my comp it was fine...then about 2 months later my Radeon 9600 started giving me VPU errors when i played games...so I got that fixed by getting the card replaced...now I no longer get VPU errors but my motherboard overheats and my comp turns off on me. I have used the Asus motherboardmonitering thing...and my motherboard idles at around yellow-orange area... I cannot run a game for more then 30min with out my comp turning off. Well my solution was to point a house fan to it, it works fine but I would like to hear if you people have any suggestions or help that you can give me...because this is really starting to bother me, I do not believe that my comp should be running this way.

When was the last time you opened it up, and gave the inside a good cleaning? Are all your fans running? Are the blades clean? Download EVEREST Home Edition and see what kind of temperatures you're running.
