The issue is that anytime I play games give it 40min to 90min my computer will lock up with a black screen and a loud buzzing sound comes from my speakers.

-This only happens when gaming no other times.
-Happens on any game doesn't matter which one.
-Have already RMA the card there was no issues found.
-Newest drivers and old drivers for card tried.
-Not a heat issue when looking at temps there at 50c for CPU and mid 60c for GPU.

I don't think it is a GPU issue unless you OCed. Sounds related to the power supply or power delivery in general.

I would still make sure by running something like Heaven bench over and over again to see if you crash. Then run something like prime95.

Sorry for the slow reply but after doing prime95 for 2 hours or so there was no issues. Max cpu temp was 65c or so and computer never shut off.
