    Your CPU becomes to hot and runs a bit unstable.
    But that usually result in more slowdowns over a longer period of time.

    Or it could just be disc lag (dirty disc/dirty laser)

    I doubt it is the disc or laser but might as well cover all the bases and I'm guessing you mean 4-5 hours of use not if you play 6 hours straight it corrects itself? Well a lot of dust can get into the system so I recommend cleaning it and maybe reflowing it if you have the equipment.

    You can fit a small 40 mm fan on the 2nd GPU heatsink if you have a Zephyr/Falcon/Opus/Jasper console.

    Hook it up to ether 9v or 12v.

    Ans like Rasas said.
    Cleaning is important on 360's
