Pony 9600 GT Geforce 1gb video ram

First you have to find out what fans are making noise. CPU's fan, videocard's fan, PSU's fan,etc?

Something in your system is overheating and causing it to crash.
I would suspect the CPU as being the culprit.
Use GPUz to track of the GPU's temps and Coretemp or Realtemp to track the CPU's temps.
Post back you idle and load temps.

I would still recommend checking the temps with the above programs.

The GPU is designed to run HOT.
Load temps into the upper 90's are quite normal with these chips.
Even if the GPU is MUCH hotter than the CPU, it is not necessarily at fault.

The GPU looks good so far.
Perhaps try starting up a game and checking the temps under a load.
You can either alt tab out to GPUz or enable logging to a file and check it later.

Happy to help!

Yeah, those under desk tower enclosures are great for hiding the computer but terrible for the temps.
Now that it is in the cool, try some of your games again.
Perhaps, with the lower temps, all of your issues have been resolved.

Even so...you should be careful with your temp and make sure you have a good airflow in your case.
