Computer randomly crashing while gaming.

my computer randomly freezes from time to time while playing games. It's not often, but I'm playing hardcore games where if it freezes I lose days if not weeks of progress, which is driving me crazy. When it freezes I have to hold down the power button to turn it off(no screen of death or anything).

I have downloaded "Driver Booster" and updated all my drivers which still did not solve the problem as it froze a few days ago.

Have you tried clearing the dust out of the inside?

Yes I use "pressure air" to blow it clean now and then. But it has actually done this ever since I built it when it was 100% clean, so I don't think that's the problem.
