BSOD under stress

I am currently not on the problem computer as i am at work. I recently got my computer, opened it up when recieved to make sure everything was snug and connected. It was running like a dream, then it froze. I was a computer tech for a while so I knew to run through updating everything. I updated every driver you could think of, DirectX, framework, forceware, memtest'd the RAM, chipset drivers, etc. I think ive come to the conclusion that the VGA is overheating. It idles at 60C with the fan at 80%. When I play less graphic intensive games like Counter-Strike: Source, it runs fine. However, games like Timeshift & Crysis freeze over time. Will installing a VGA cooler fix my problem?
