Another quick check... could you be more specific on when these freezes happen? Is it ONLY at gaming?
Have you checked if the inside of your PC isn't dusty so the fans, specifically the one for the videocard aren't working well? have you/are you able to check the temperatures on your system?

If you need any help on these questions, please post back, we'll lead you through it, step by step.

Most of them happen when gaming, but it can happen if i have multiple windows open, like listening to music while logged on to Steam, MSN, Skype etc.

This last time it happened when i was chatting with someone in MSN, and i changed music, then tried to open firefox, it completely froze, but im pretty sure my CPU can handle that.

I've also turned off my CPU Phase Mode since last time, cos I heard it would help.

I have checked the inside of the PC a few weeks back, it was a tiny bit of dust, not so much it would affect anything.

And yes, I am able to check temperatures on my system, at summer it's usually around 30 - 35 Celcius when surfing and listening to music etc. Never seen it over 50 even during gaming. At winter it stays at 27 Celcius most of the time.

To be entirely sure: do you also check your GPU temp's and not only CPU?

Never checked my GPU's temp while playing, but while just surfing and listening to music etc, it should be the almost the same as the CPU, around 32 - 37 Celcius.
Right now its 35, so its fine.
