    Default Holy overheats Batman!

    So for the past week or so I've been having a bit of computer trouble.

    Whenever I play the vidya on my rig, I get massive framerate drops every 10-15 minutes.
    Normally, most games run about 40-60FPS depending on how taxing it is.
    However when it drops it goes down to about 5-10.
    I imagine this is my computers way of trying to cool itself down when it gets too hot.

    So far I've taken the following steps.

    -I've taken a can of compressed air and blasted every last dust particle in every possible crack, crevice, nook, and cranny right into oblivion.
    -I've been keeping my room between 68-72 degress. No exceptions.
    -I've added in too additional fans, an intake and an outtake to help regulate airflow.
    -I've removed the old thermal grease on the processor and replaced it with a new coat.

    Yet I'm still having the overheat issues (But the do seem to be at least a little more spaced apart)
    The only other thing I can think to try is replace my PSU, since it's only a 550 watt and I'm thinking it's putting out more power than it needs to in order to supply power to everything in my machine.
    So, if Fedex next day promises what they say and what I've paid for, I should have a new thousand watt in the mail tomorrow to replace it with.

    However, I was wanting some input just in case that doesn't fix the problem, as the only other thing I can think of it being is the graphics card starting to go (BFG 9800GT, Nvidia, if that helps)

    Any thoughts on what else it could be?

    And the computer itself is about...A year and a half old now I believe.

    Doesn't sound like overheating to me. When a computer overheats, it generally just shuts down, or if it's the GPU, graphical artifacts may be visible. You could run some CPU and GPU temperature monitoring software in the background while playing the game that causes the problem, and then alt-tabbing out to check the temperature when the problem starts.

    Have you actually changed any hardware before this started to happen? Otherwise, I'd look for a software problem before looking for a hardware problem.

    Additional to Eris, have you try running your game(s) on lower setting than your current setting i.e lower resolution, disable AA, AF, tweaking with detail options or disabling PhysX? Is the problem persist after that? Or are you running any programs while playing your games?

    Try run a torture test via Prime95 to eliminate any problem cause by your on PSU, mainboard or/and CPU. Let it run for an hour and monitor the temperature levels of the CPU and mainboard. If the computer crashed and restart within that one hour period, you might have a problem on either or combination of one or all of your hardware.

    Oh my god!
    It's the goddamn batman!

    Tried removing the case cover? It might look ugly, but it's pretty effective.
    Also, try not to push the computers limits.

    Thanks for the input guys, but it seems that yes, the power supply was the issue.
    I've only had a few framerate drops since I put it in and they were nowhere near as severe and only in New Vegas, so I'm just going to blame those on Obsidian entertainment.

    Removing the case will counter-intuitively enough worsen the air circulation in the computer.
