  1. Going by your description it could be heat related. One or more of the components is not functioning when it gets hot or overheats. A good start is to clean out the internals of your case. If the internals are clean running memtest would be the next step http://www.memtest.org/
  2. thank you i have ordered a new heat sink as the one i had before was the stock and one of the pins was broken so maybe it wasnt providing proper contact. So hopefully that fixes the problem
