So my PC will completely freeze for 30 seconds to one minute fairly frequently (4-5 times a day) and it is very frustrating.

-All my drivers are up to date
-I did a memory test and it came back with 0 errors
-Full virus scan by Mcafee came back with no viruses

My spec:
-AMD 6300 6 core CPU
-GTX 650
-Corsair RM550 PSU
-8GB RAM
-1TB HDD

Further info -
-My event viewer gave me this error multiple times, (I don't know whether it's related to the freezes): Kernel-Power 41 (63)

Please help me as this is a major hindrance! If you need any more info about my PC just let me know! Thankyou!!

Hi, GPU is at about 40 (goes to 50 when gaming) CPU is 40. Case sensors are reading 30. Don't think temps are a problem :/

Make sure you stay connected to the internet at all times so you don't mess up your BIOS.
