My computer has been bsoding. Its not very often (three times so far, had it for 3 weeks), but it dstll concerns me. Could it overheating? I have 80mm case fan+a cpu fan. My CPU hasnt been past 47 from what I see, but I dont check it while gaming. My Specs are:

AMD FX-6300
Nvidia Geforce GT 520 2GB
ASUS m5A78L -ubs3
250GB Sata
40 GB IDE
8GB DDR3 RAM - 2000mhz

Thanks! BTW I can install another case fan if needed..

My PSU is a HEC 80+ Plus bronze certified 350W

The stock heater on my 6300 was pretty bad. I switched that out, and if you only have 1 fan, I would change it to 2. 1 in the front, the cpu cooler shooting air backward, then a fan out the back. It works on mine just fine, along with an inward fan on the side. But keep in mind, this might not be what is causing your BSoD.
