Random Freezes on newly installed OS

Okay so like, I washed out my old ancient Pentium 4 about 2 days ago. I re-installed everything from the OS, drivers, software, everything it needs to run. I'm a pretty casual MMORPG gamer and I run 2 machines in my household. But my old Pentium freezes up every time I try running my game clients. I think it's maybe due to high amounts of CPU stress? The game I play takes up a tremendous amounts of resources bouncing my CPU usage to past 40-50%. Note that my computer is within specs of the game and that the game itself ran fine before I did all this washing. Anyone got an idea what's going on?

  1. What do you mean you washed it? Like washed it with water?
  2. No, like reformatting whole system. Wiping it.
