Glad to hear that; it was the heat causing the problem, right?

Not sure now, it froze again and i felt it and it didn't seem too hot, i ran the memtest for 9 passes and no errors were found. When it happened i was running a lot of applications at once which may have been the cause, plus the heat issue. But really my computer should be able to handle anything i throw at it. Would increasing my RAM help?

It shouldn't be the amount of RAM so much as the health of the RAM. Try running Prime95 again (all three tests), and keeping an eye on Speedfan.

Hello,

That freezing problem happen only when you connected with broadband? I had a problem when connecting with broadband, it freeze!!!. If using wifi or LAN cable it ok, no issue. Some people said that because of AVG AV, uninstalled, then you willsolve the problem. However my AV is McAfee not AVG.
