My Computer will freeze about 10 - 40 minutes into a game, depending on the game. I,ll try to give as much information i can but this is my first time posting to a forum. When playing Starcraft 2, the game will start flashing random colors on a certain part of the map, but wont freeze my computer until i do an action or try to open the in-game menu, which will then end in a black screen with a sound loop or the BSOD. Dota 2 will freeze around 40 minutes into the game, but League of Legends wont freeze at all. Ive checked all the temps which are around 60'C. Ive reinstalled the graphics driver, and updated my OS. Ive also completely cleaned the inside of my computer, although im not sure how to clean the inside of my graphics card if thats even possible. Im not really sure on what the proper way is to show my specs but ill copy and paste from DxDiag and MSinfo.

Does the computer heat up?
Also, the flashing of colors normally means a problem or sudden change in display settings. Are your drivers up to date?

The computer will heat up to about 70'C when in game, and yes all of my drivers are up to date.
