How do you know it's your cpu? Does your pc just restarts after 30mins of gameplay? I mean Wow isn't an intensive game, you should be fine unless of course it's overheating. Or have you overclocked the cpu in any way?

If your pc restarts by itself then go to My computer, right click it then go to properties. Then advanced system settings and then to the advanced tab. Below Startup and recover click the settings tab and uncheck the options that says Automatically restart, it's below the system failure options.
What this will do is if the PC used to restart by some malfunction what it will do know instead is give you a blue screen that will give you the details as to why the Pc is crashing.

But if you haven't overclocked your cpu then check to see that the heatsink fan is properly attached and that the intake and exhaust fans on the case aren't blocked by dust.

Ok I unchecked it and will try to force it to crash I guess. I do feel heat come from the tower when it does crash so im guess its heat related. The fans are all working from what I saw in the case and I screwed back in the heatsink as far as i could.

When you say CPU I'm guessing your computer crashes, WoW uses a load of RAM so if anything I would start looking there, Ive used Sandra in the past and never found it to be any good except giving loads of false recomendations.

download core temp and try to give us an estimate of how hot the cpu is running. You can alt+enter while in game to run it in window mode so you can check the readings.

What about your power supply? How many watts is it? What brand is it?

Sounds like a frustrating problem. Is there a BIOS update available for your motherboard? I can't really think of anything else. With the hardware you have, you shouldn't have any problems at all running that game. It sounds like your processor is overheating, but you said it was only 47C. I would start by looking for updates for BIOS and drivers for your video card.
