    I sounds like it is overheating. First think I would do is download HWMonitor and check your temps. You can also go into the BIOS and check your temps there and compare the results. I would also get a can of compressed air and dust out everything. Blow out the intake fan and exaust fan. Blow out the CPU fan and heatsink and I would also re-apply thermal paste.
