52C is not horrible, if playing demanding game.

Please, post some computer info:
- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")
- security programs in use (antivirus, firewall)

thanks for the reply as i mentioned above its an amd athlon x2 7750 2.7ghz the ram is ddr2 pc2-6400 800mhz 2gigs worth it has a 300gb wester digital caviar sata 3.0 276gb free space and symantec antivirus this is a brand new build only had it together for a week and the game i was playing is world of warcraft hardly a demanding game. also the fan speed is at 2678rpm at that temp seems low speed to me. when the screen freezes a loud constant scratchy screechy noise comes out of the speakers and you cant do anything until you restart the computer. ive swaped out the video card thought that might be it still did it. didnt know if it could be the ram i havent done a memtest on it yet any help would be appreciated.

Your processor max temp is listed at 70C, so I don't believe, you have overheating problem.

memtest won't hurt.

Well, run it for a few passes (overnight?), and we'll go from there.

What is the CPU temperature, when you just turn the computer on, doing nothing else?

I think, it's little bit high for the desktop, while idle.
When was the last time, you cleaned the inside, using compressed air.

Navigate to: C:\Windows\Minidump folder.
If you see any .dmp files, zip all of them, and attach zipped file to your next reply.

Your errors:
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M
caused by ntoskrnl.exe, may indicate RAM issue.
Are you sure, you have correct RAM installed?
If so....
Run memtest: http://www.techspot....topic62524.html
