    Hello.
    Random freezing at any moment, even during power up, is invariably a hardware issue, but these things really can be tricky to locate. It's a question of trying to work out what is the most likely cause, testing that, then moving on to the next most likely cause.

    In my many, many years of building PC's, the random "anytime" freeze has always been down to RAM, so it's the first place I would look.

    You do realise that your CPU doesn't actually support the RAM speed you bought? Just because you can set that in the BIOS doesn't mean it will work. So check that you are running the RAM at the speed set by the CPU which I think is 1866? ( Not sure about that, you will have to check ).

    After that I would try replacing the RAM completely. Of the very few RAM issues I have had, every time they have been Kingston. Kingston is good RAM but it does tend to have some little quirks. In particular, I would be very concerned about one item in the Fury spec, which is "Automatic Overclocking". You really want to avoid automatic anything in case it needs to be switched off! So the first thing I would do is replace the RAM with a different make. Corsair generally being the better alternative.
    I double-checked my components before buying them and I verified that the i5 6600k would work with RAM speeds up to 3000Mhz, so I doubt that the CPU is not supporting my RAM. I also tried lowering the RAM speed to 2133 Mhz but I still have the same outcome. I also did a Memtest with 4 passes so that would probably exclude that the RAM modules are faulty.

    I believe that the fault is either with my board or with the voltages/speeds. I just need someone with the expertise of configuring BIOS to verify that my BIOS settings are correct.

    Guys I think I may have find out what the issue is. If anyone could confirm this I would be really happy

    I checked the motherboard's supported RAM models and I couldn't find the exact model of my RAM.

    Here is the pdf with the DDR4 Qualified Vendors


    My model is this one: HX426C15FBK2/8

    I could only find HX426C15FBK2/16 to be available and some other similar models but not my specific one.

    Could this really be the issue here?

    (Also something else I noticed is that in another PDF which lists the 'Device Report' , I can't find my power supply there (Corsair VS650) but I'm 99% sure that's compatible with the particular motherboard)

    Any advice on that it'd be much appreciated guys

    I don't think it's a matter of compatibilty, your PSU should work fine and the root of your RAM is the same except you have a 2X8 and the other one is 2X16.
    The point is: if the system worked fine for one week, what did happen to make it freez? did you install any new HW/SW or driver before it started freezing?
    and also try booting your BIOS with what is colled "SAFE" or something like that in your BIOS boot page

    So after lots of testing I found out what the problem was.

    If anyone has a similar problem you should probably disable C-States in BIOS.

    Its already been 12 hours with C-States disabled and everything looks good again. I also tried to re-enable them to be 100% sure and the PC froze again after 2 minutes. Now I disabled them again, ran a few tests and everything looks good.

    Thanks for your suggestions guys
