I have had this problem for along time now. My games crash, It could happen in a fire fight with tones of bad guys. or just standing in one place not being attacked. My GPU Temp is about 165 degrees. I was told that colud be the problem. But when I took the case off my computer and had a big fan blowing on it, I figured it busted that myth.
This is my 1st post, so I hope the pic of the error report I uploaded works.

It might not be the fan but the cooling unit instead. Temperature could still be the problem, it could be the case that your cooling unit just needs more coolant grease or that something else has gone wrong, or indeed you may just have a very hot running pc. My old pc used to always run very very hot, nothing we did helped. No amount of extra fans seemed to help till my father had the bright idea to check the cooling system and found it was completely dry.

Now, i'm no expert on repairing pcs but don't rule out overheating simply because the fan is working.

Try running your pc without it's case cover on for a while, possibly on it's side so the heat rises out of it. It's a temperary fix but it might help, maybe.
Does it lock up or reboot when you do anything else? Like running videos or large software packages? Or is it just games?

No, I don't think it locks up. Some times it dose reboot, but not very often. I have had the case off of my computer, thats when I had that big fan blowing on it. But I think I will try it again.
