Many causes of freezing.
1. Check out your OS
First try System File Checker
Winkey plus 'X'
Choose Command Prompt (Admin)
Type sfc /scannow then Enter

It finds and fixes errors in Windows, but doesn't always report them. Run it and see if the fault disappears after re-booting your system
If corrupt files are found that can’t be fixed, try

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

Re-run SFC

To view CBS Log

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >sfcdetails.txt

Search C drive for sfcdetails.txt or navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and scroll down.

2. Check System for overheating


D'load and run Speccy

Check temperature after running a game for a while.

3. Check RAM.

If you have more than one stick, try running on one at a time. Or run Memtest 86.

4. Check HDD

Sorry, wasn't aware you had an SSD, this test more appropriate

Though if your HDD failed Long Generic, use the failure code to help get it replaced. Hopefully your SSD OK.
Once you've established what's at fault, ensure you order Recovery disks at the same time as your replacements.
