    Yes, heat will cause crashes. Overclocking will also cause crashes. Bad RAM can cause crashes too. There are many things which can cause a crash to desktop, so the best thing to do is to run your system at default speeds (including default RAM timings in the BIOS) and see if it still happens.

    No game or application will crash back to desktop by itself, so some part of your setup is failing and crashing back to desktop. My suspicion is that it's overclocking on your system and/or RAM timings.
