Please keep this in mind no cable attached to a computer or inside a computer should get hot. If it feels hot to the touch it normally means a poor connection creating a amp draw. It can also be the component the cable is attached to drawing to many amps.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Update with the machine. I sent it back to the company two weeks ago to get it fixed, it was at the point where it would no longer run games at all, then it would not boot. I sent it in and they said it was a software level issue. It was set in IDE mode rather than AHCI and the BIOS settings were reset. They're doing overnight testing and will send it back tomorrow.
I hope that fixes the PC, but I was wondering would that cause a BSOD during gameplay? I just don't want to get it back and be back at square one.

As it turns out the computer has been fixed and returned. It was the GPU. Now I have a different model. Thanks all for the help!

BSOD - Browsing on Firefox, Playing HoN, Civ5
My issue is more so with my computer just freezing up for 15-20 seconds at a time randomly when I'm doing anything. I do get a BSOD every 3 hours or so too. I'm fairly certain this is a result of some driver that was recently installed, but I have no idea which one.
