Talking System reboot....

Hi i was wondering if anyone could help me out here. My PC tends to get very hot whilst playing games. But only when i play HL2 and CS:S my computer will reboot when it gets to about 70 degrees celsius the system reboots, which gets very annoying. Below is my PC Spec:

Intel Pentiuim 4 3.0GHz with HT Tech (Did have standard fan but now i have a Coolmaster Jet thingy)
MSI 865PE Neo2-P
2x 512DDR PC3200 OCZ Dual Channel Gold Edition
Leadtek Winfast 6800GT 256DDR
4x 80mm fans
1x Extractor Fan
(At the moment CPU Temp is 51 and Sys temp is 42)

If anyone could please help that would be great.

70 C is too hot. You need to try and cool it down. Have you overclocked the processor?

I would try to reseat the heat sink on the processor.

Also, use some quality thermal paste, not that crap that comes pre-attached to the heat sink.
