Recently I have been having problems with my computer playing games via Steam, It has been overheating and freezing once It BSOD on me, Some games overheat and freeze quicker than others (Larger more graphical games) I have 3 fans in my PC (One main fan, One on my graphics card and one on my processor its mainly the processor that heats up causing the crash/BSOD. After my BSOD I have not touched many of the games, I would love for some help on this problem. (If it would help it mainly crashes around 1hr of gameplay depending on the game. 

 

Love Bazingacatz ! 

P.S When the BSOD happened it created a dump file would that be any use to you ?

If the fans are working properly and are nice and clean, then the only possible reason for the overheating is that the heatsink and processor are not making a good contact and you'd have to remove the heatsink, clean off all the old thermal paste and replace it.

That's a fact.

With a bit of luck, the OP can resolve it with a can of compressed air.

Good job.

It may have been a bit of a pain to do, but now you'll have no more worries.
