I've recently upgraded most of the components in my PC, I changed motherboard, RAM and CPU:
- Ryzen 3600
- MSI B450 Tomahawk Max
- 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000MHz
I'm still running the system on the old Crucial BX300 SSD. I did not wipe and start afresh when I changed the components.
I've got a problem where playing some games the system will completely freeze up for about 15 seconds at a time, the hard drive light stays lit. Eventually, it will suddenly come back to life and everything works fine.
This also occasionally happens on the desktop, but rather than completely freezing, I'm still able to move the mouse and click on things, but nothing will open until it unfreezes.
I've never had to actually restart the PC to get past the freezes.
I've checked temperatures. GPU is fine and never goes above 70degC, the CPU is still on the stock cooler and idles around mid 40s, reaches 80degC occasionally under load, but normally hovers around 75degC under load.
I'll probably try doing a clean install of Windows, but this feels more like a hardware issue?
