Windows 7: Computer freezes all the time when playing games

Computer freezes all the time when playing games

Just around a few minutes after I've launched any game (flash game, PC game) the computer freezes. I can't do anything but force restart the computer. I literally uninstalled Windows 7 and reinstalled it (not from scratch). It sometimes freezes, but not when playing games, but when just regularly browsing the internet. That's when I get the Blue Screen of death. But when playing games, I don't know what happens. The computer literally freezes. The sound from my speekers repeats like an infinite loop. I CAN'T write a log. There is literally no way the computer can do that.

Oh, ironically I got a BSOD while typing this. How nice.

Any help?

Actually. It... was CPU overheating. I'm honestly scared that this CPU might burn some day because 5 minutes after I turn it on it's already at 64C. From 55C to 65C.

Terrible. Can a CPU explode?

No, but it can fry and die.
Did you try and mend the situation in some fashion?
How old is the PC?
Is there dust accumulation?
Is the heat-sink seated properly?
What heat-sink is it?

Is it socket 775 / AM2?
I didn't imply for you to go out and buy a new fan, unless you see fit of course.
