Tried to reinstall all the games that I was having trouble with. The problems was not happening with BF3, but then it started to. Dirt 3 the problem still happens.
It could be a heat problem, so I am going to check that. It is possible that I may have put too much thermal paste on and if so I will clean the CPU with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. Not sure why it is only happening with games and not when I am doing 5 things at once (running a movie, audio, browsing the web, etc.)
