Ok, my system is not that good, I know, but until I can get enough cash for a new one, this is all I've got. Speaking of which, I love to play PC games, and recently I've been noticing strange things happening when playing new, more demanding games. Whenever I play something like Burnout Paradise, or Call of Duty 4, after a while (5 mins or so), I notice this scratching sound coming from my computer. If I leave it, then the computer just restarts.

The only way to fix this right now is to leave the case open and point a large fan at it. I thought that it might be the thermal paste, so I replaced it, but it still happens. The weird thing is that even under normal conditions and booting, the CPU temp goes up to 70 C, when playing a game, it goes to about 65 C and the scratching, restarting happens. It never happens just due to excess heat, or full CPU usage when not playing a game.
