sounds like it's overheating and getting a memory error. try to clean out the case. run with the case open to see if if that helps. blow out the dust on the CPU heatsink
well i know its not overheating so how would i fix the memory error?
Running a PC without the case is actually worse than with the case on. If you run it with the side of the case off it's not getting the proper airflow it needs. If it is overheating, try cleaning the components off like previously suggested, and make sure the airflow is one direction in and out of the case.
