So basically what happens is when im playing a high demanding game like Witcher 3, Arma 3, or even CSGO, my computer will just completely freeze up. During these moments i cannot move my mouse or use my keyboard. Im forced to completely reset my computer. Temp for CPU is normally around 50 and video around 65 when playing these games. Starting to become really frustrating. Any help would be appreciated.

Also, i recently purchased this computer from cyberpowerpc. Sadly when i first recieved it it caught on fire. After returning it they replaced the parts, yet using the same hard drive. I have tried a different one to no avail ( Cloned Original). My question is, since that harddrive contained the previous hardware drivers, is there a possibility that it is conflicting with the more current ones? Honestly, I have no idea about where the problem is coming from. Just an extra tip in case it is of value. Thanks again.

  1. At what speed is the ram working? Look via cpu-z->memory tab.
    How is the ram usage when playing these games?
  2. Is the motherboard bios up to date?

    Run 3dmark firestrike and post the link of the result.

    Run prime95 and realtemp. Read temp after 10 minutes
    Run furmark burn in and read temperatures after 10 minutes.

    Hdd clone shouldn't be a problem.

    Which temp is your motherboard chip in bios?
