Help Diagnose Prob with Phenom II X3 720 PC

836 11
So this is my parents PC.

Troubles its having it randomly locks up, even at the Bios splash screen at times and it happens a lot during Windows 7's loading screen. Things I have tried are a 6 hour memtest which came up with no errors, windows update and cccleaner. I've tried safe mode as well but even then sometimes booting up it will lock up. I have switched the PSU, I have reset bios to optimized defaults. I really don't know what to do anymore, I'm not sure if its high temperatures causing the problems but I do think they are too high. Sometimes after shutting the PC off it won't turn back on unless pulling the the power from the PSU and hitting the power button again. This is leading me to believe its something with hardware and not software.

Also the case its in is horrendous as it has no intakes nor an exhaust...lol

Anyway any input or advice would be appreciated. Mods, could you please move this over to AMD General forums or any other place you seem better fit for this type of question, thanks!

You could also check for dust or mobo contacting case surface at some points. I suppose everything set right in the bios for ram and cpu ?
