    PC freezing/crashing in games. No BSOD.

    Hello,I posted on another well-known hardware site a couple of months ago, but nobody has been able to assist, so I hope someone here may know better - it doesn't seem to be a hardware problem.I built myself a new PC back in May with a fresh Windows 10 installation, but I kept the following from my previous build: HDD, SSD, CPU cooler, chassis & SATA cables. Everything else is new. The previous build was completely stable and was running Windows 7.Sometimes I can go a full day without any crashes, other times it's 10 minutes in and I get a crash, and it doesn't matter which game I play. I don't get a BSOD so I can't check any dump files, the screen simply freezes on the last frame and I can't alt+tab, alt+f4 or anything, so I must hold down the power to switch off. It is definitely the computer crashing and not the game crashing as any voice-comms also shut off, and I hear a small ďclickĒ through the headset, the same click you would hear if you shut down your PC while wearing a headset. It never happens while outside of a game. It happens on games installed on either my HDD or SSD. Windows is installed on my SSD.I have tried 2 different GPU's, 2 different PSU's, 2 different CPU's, I've ran memtest86+ and windows memory diagnostics, both with no errors, I've kept an eye on temps and they seem to be fine - hitting a max GPU temp of 70įC, CPU 50įC, Mobo 39įC. I also believe it not to be temps due to the fact that it is possible that the machine can run a whole day without any crashes. I've tried using CrystalDisk to check storage health, stating both my drives as being in "good" health. I've even tried switching monitors just to be sure. I've flashed the BIOS, updated chipset, LAN, audio drivers - all of which I've done multiple times since there has been multiple updates since building this machine. I've ran AIDA64 with everything seemingly being stable. I used to update the GPU drivers whenever there was an update, but I had the same problem under each version and so I've even taken to trying a few older drivers.Iíve tried disabling C-states and Intel CPU Boost in BIOS, tried the ram frequency on 100:133, 100:100, and auto. I have tried reinstalling windows, removing audio drivers and letting Windows install its own drivers.Iíve tried everything I can think of and everything I can find on forums where people have similar problems. There seems to be something Iím overlooking and I canít for the life of me figure out what it is. A friend of mine is a network administrator for a large company and has tried a multitude of things on my computer via TeamViewer and he canít figure it out either. This is probably about my 5th computer Iíve built for myself over the years so I generally know what Iím doing, but never have I experienced something like this. A BSOD would be great, but without them and without dump files, I cannot troubleshoot effectively.If there's ANYTHING anyone can recommend that I try, I'm all ears. Oh, and nothing is or has been overclocked.Here's the current setup:GPU: GTX 1060 6GB (MSI)CPU: i5 7600KRAM: 16GB (2x8GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX 2400MHz DDR4Mobo: ASUS Prime B250M-ASSD: 120GB Samsung Evo 840 (drivers are up-to-date, this has windows installed, drivers and a few games)HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB (this has everything else on)PSU: EVGA Supernova G2 650wSorry if I've missed anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
