You are not being dropped for reserved slots. On this server reserved slot players are set to expand roster rather than drop players. So when a reserved slot player joins a 20/20 game the game becomes 21/21 and so on.
It sounds like your rig is overheating.

good, bad, I'm the guy with the gun.

Not a chance on the reserved slots. They're all configured to "Grow" the limit to 21, 22, and so on. Something else must be causing you to freeze. I'd make sure you were running your latest video drivers, audio drivers, windows update, service packs, bios updates, etc...

Also if you're on the VIA chipset, or the nforce chipset, or really whatever chipset, make sure you have the latest drivers for your chipset.

If all that fails, next I'd try getting a can of compressed air, blowing everything out including fans.

As a last resort (and the standard disclaimer, that I'm not responsible for your actions, so odnt come cry to me if you break anything ), you could remove all the components from your system, blow everything out again, and replace everything.

After any of these trials, I'd giv memtest 86+ a go http://www.memtest.org/

This tool is invaluable for finding out if you have bad memory, and you can use it over and over until you find out what stick. It would also help you see if the problem is memory related or something else... Just get the iso and burn it to a cd, then boot with it.

The fundamental problem is this: The first word we learn as children is NO. From that point forward society teaches women that saying no isn't polite, and society teaches men to respect those who wont take no for an answer.

ah. 350 really just doesn't cut it anymore. It's even getting to where a 420 wont cut it depending upon your GPU...
