-I just built my system 3 weeks ago. e8400 3ghz, 4gb of ddr2 1066 mhz, 8800 gts over clocked edition by msi, 550 watt power supply.

Been playing age of conan great for all this time. Last night the computer froze with a sound loop couldnt task manager close program or anything mouse stuck in position ect. SO i restarted it. the problem became frequent sooner and sooner. So i reinstalled windows and it kept getting stuck right before it was done installing. Then i went into bios noticed the processor was sitting at 40 degrees cellcius. for a e8400 in bios not overclocked ect. seemed high becuase ive heard they sit at 25-30 degrees celcius. i had a huge aftermarket fan on there too. i poped in the stock one that never had been used. seemed a few degrees cooler with that. then i put a huge fan with the case open pointed at the motherboard to make sure it was not heat. Tempature was in the low 30's. Got thru the install and it froze again at create a username. at least i didnt have to go thru the install again. poped it up and created it. I also took one of my 2 gig sticks out just to see if it was memory related. I got age of conan installed vent graphics drived ect working for like 40 minuted sweet!. Then im surfing the web getting my feet wet and bam it freezes and after every restart it freezes more frequently until it freezes at the windows loading screen. i go into bios the cpu is in the 30's everything looks fine there. tried each stick of ram they both produce the same problem the case is pretty much cold when i touch it i touched all the parts and after it freezes and i turn it off and there barley warm to the touch. ran memory diagnostic and no errors. repartitioned the hard drive and format with fresh copy of widowns conan was updating so it wasnt the game it hadnt even been played yet. it was barebones as far as software. working for 3 weeks no problems and now this. please help me if you know what it could be thanks!-
