    Games starts to freeze after ~15minutes

    Every game starts to freeze after ~15minutes of gameplay in windows 8 professional. That freezing continues for a minute or two and then everything is fine for about 5 minutes. This cycle continues over and over again.
    I have nvidia gt325m graphics card with 306.97 drivers installed.
    System is not overheating - I am sure of that. I have not overclocked neither cpu nor gpu either.
    Any ideas on how to get rid of this issue will be appreciated.
