Windows 7: Computer keeps forcing itself into sleep mode?

@Boozad When I installed Windows 7 on my computer, I didn't have a CD drive so I had to flash it over. For some reason, doing so rendered my key invalid so I had to purchase a new one. That was the only real problem I've had before this

I'm not sure what you mean by 'flash it over'.

I had to put Windows on an external drive and set my computer so it would boot into the external drive via my BIOS so that it would install onto my hard drive.

In short, you should be benchmarking and weighing the plus and minus of overclocking.
If a system needs its CPU overclocking to keep up with the GPU in gaming it needs a new CPU and the builder should balance the build better. ARMA II and Battlefield certainly don't ned an overclocked CPU to play, providing you build a machine designed for gaming with the proper components. If a game is being being bottlenecked by a CPU, it really isn't a gaming standard CPU.

Sorry for the delayed response, everyone, but work has been taking up most of my time lately. I was finally able to get around to trying out all of your suggestions, and I think it's really helped. I can't say for sure until I have a lengthy test, but it seems my problem is fixed. I opened up my case to fix my fans, and now both are working without fail. I also downloaded CPUID HWMonitor to check my CPU temperatures, and I was indeed overheating. With the fans finally working, it has dropped the temperature a bit, but I will definitely need to purchase more fans or maybe even a liquid cooling system in the immediate future. I'm a bit hesitant to do liquid cooling, but I'll do my research before deciding on that.
Regardless, I think my main problem was the fans, being as my computer seems to be doing fine now that they are working properly. I am going to leave the thread open for a little while longer, however, so I can make sure this isn't just a short term fix. If things seem to be working properly and the problem is resolved after about a week of normal use, I will consider the problem completely fixed and close the thread.

Thank you, everyone who helped me. Hopefully this problem is dead and buried and I can move on from it. You all are awesome! A slice of cake for everyone!

The all in one liquid cooling systems are a snap to use and quite efficient, if you want to go that way. Nothing to be afraid of. They're only a tiny bit more complicated than some heatsink/fans, and are well worth the investment for keeping your CPU cool.

And thanks for the cake.
