My 2pence: I have this spec:
I have almost no issues with this setup, no hangs while gaming. But one crash to desktop with TF2. No issues with Battlefield V or HL2 or Skyrim. No issues with Cinebench or unigine benchmarks.
CPU temp reaches 63C during benchmarks. 21C ambient.
Its the mfing Simultaneous Multi Threading SMD.
i have done everything and disabling smt solved all my freezing problems. mostly happened with League of Legends. i could play other games like far cry 5 hours and do OK. But lol, nope, 2 matches and freeze in the middle of the third.
why this happens? idk.
im just leaving this here idk if you have switched platform already or found a solution.
if anyone comes here looking for a solution: disable smt, test and please log in and comment if worked.
