Not always, especially if you live in a rather warm area or it gets hot in the summer. Freezer 7's are cheap anyway.

Thanks everyone for your help. I replaced the cooler and the paste today, and cut the temperature on the CPU from 64 cel. to 32 cel. yeah... No crashes so far, and everything looks great. Even though it was a CPU problem and not a PSU problem, I will be upgrading, probably to a 500w, just so I can safely support my Graphics card. Again, thanks for the help.
