try running your device vertically on a flat surface (not carpet) and have a fan facing the system

does it freeze on a particular game?

Try running it without the HDD and see if it still freezes.

You asked a question and provided no details or info. My suggestion is the only answer that will be certain to solve your problem.

Perhaps offer up info in order to obtain a "better" answer.

The point of fans in cooling is not to blow air on to a device. Increasing the air flowing in to the console is likely to increase the dust that builds up as well. Thus causing more over heating.

playing them vertically won't do anything but laser burn them. i couldn't tell you how many copies of call of duty (MW2 up to BO2) i've swapped out for people from doing this. the ps3 and the wii both have a loader style disc drive, where as the 360 has the tray (similar to the ps2) style. when you slap a game in, it's spinning at who knows how fast and the slightest bump causes a magical perfect circle on the disc thanks to the wonder people of microsoft for using a tray instead of a loader, thus giving you a laser burn.

tl;dr try installing games to the hard drive.

Vertical = Bad Idea for many reasons.
