I should have plenty of airflow, my case is huge! Its a HAF 932. All the fans are at 100% at all times besides my GPU. CPU doesnt even get warm because of my massive heatsink.. IIRC its called Xiggy or something. I dont remember, I bought a custom mount for AM3 for it on here from some guy. Its huge though

I think your right, I think the chipset died. I didnt get any freezes while using my other motherboard, but that may have been because my CPU was only at 800 mhz. The M4a79t deluxe board doesnt even get warm compared to the board in my sig... probably because its bigger
