    Because you've had some BSOD-less crashes I want to know what the state of your hard drive is.
    Please follow below instructions.

    If the short generic fails, no need for the long generic.

    Seatools passed all the tests. Chkdsk came up with no errors.

    A software (stress) test for the CPU, assuming that when you tried to boot into safe mode the GPU wasn't included we can ignore the GPU.
    If this doesn't provide what we want to see, the cause, then you may have to strip down your system.
    There are 4 software tests, for the GPU, RAM, CPU & hard drives, for the other components you have to replace them to test them, with the PSU you can test the voltages also.

    Unfortunately I'm a bit limited in giving support when it comes to hardware, if required I'll ask someone to come in for it

    Run Prime95 and/or IntelBurnTest to stress test your CPU. Prime95 - Stress Test Your CPU - Windows 10 Forums & CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest - Windows 7 Help Forums

    If you're overclocking anything, please stop it and set everything back to default while troubleshooting

    warning   Warning
    Your CPU temperatures will rise quickly while under this stress test. Keep a keen eye on them and abort the test if overheating occurs.

    Had two BSOD-less crashes just now in quick succession, even though yesterday nothing happened. I'll try to do the CPU test tomorrow though I'm a bit pressed for time with exams.

    And to add insult to injury, I had a system freeze too.

    Could you give some description about what happens and what you're doing when they happen everytime? That may help to identify the cause, it has in a lot of situations.

    Yesterday they all happened while I was watching a video on YouTube (using Chrome if that matters).

    They all pretty much happen the same way, the last half a second or so of whatever audio was playing in the background ends up being repeated for a few seconds really fast, then I get a black screen and the system resets.

    The system freeze happens in exactly the same way except I don't get a black screen and have to manually restart the machine.

    How many programs are open at the time of the crash?

    Could you make screenshots/photos of the taskmanager tab 'Processes' filtered on 3 processes, CPU, Memory & Disk, just a few seconds before a crash happens? If you can please post it.

    Most of the time it's just Steam and Chrome plus Nvidia GeForce Experience running in the background. I'm not sure how I could take a screenshot of that tab just before a crash happens since they're impossible to predict

    Keep taskmanager running when you startup, this might make it easier to catch

    Try to run 2 programs at the same time as max for now, a program of choice and taskmanager.
