*EDIT* I discovered that the problem was in fact a motherboard incompatibility. It was not a thermal problem. Buying a new motherboard completely stopped the hard lockup problems. However, still use common sense when dealing with your computer's temperature.

This problem plagued me for a while, but I finally found the solution. I know alot of others were looking for it too. Here are some steps to beat the heat of your GPU

1.) Turn off flickr photos in web admin page (seems to be the most effective)
2.) Blow dust off of gpu fan
3.) Move pci cards away from Video
4.) Add case fans
5.) Get stronger case fans
6.) Get good airflow by having at least one fan blowing in and one blowing out
7.) Buy motherbaord with integrated video
8.) Buy video card without fan (not sure about this one, but might work)
9.) Build a new system
10.) Give up and use ubuntu+mythtv (only use this as a last resort)
