This clearly shows you don't know what you're talking about. This game doesn't stress your hardware at 60 FPS, but other games that have better graphics will, and cooling is supposed to keep it cool and stable even in those occasions.

If software causes overheating and instability by stressing hardware, that means the hardware is not stable, NOT that the software is faulty. In fact, the only way to check if a system is stable is by stressing it.
How does that prove I don't know what I'm talking about? What I said makes perfect sense - no problems with VSYNC on, and crashing problems with it turned off due to my GPU trying to crank out too many frames.

Enabling VSYNC (with double threading), worked for me.
