really looking for some help and advise as i'm stuck on what to do next to resolve my issue. Spec as follows:-


MSI B450 A-Pro M.Board

Ryzen 7 2700x processor (not overclocking)


GTX 1080 GPU (MSI Sea Hawk)

SilverStone PSU - ST60F-ESB


Been having what felt like random crashes in games and music software, and have ended up with a replacement GPU (previous was a GTX 970) and new fans for better cooler from a hardware point of view. 


Downloaded Cinebench and Prime95 and each time i try to run these test the system freezes as it gets to full load (i.e within  20 seconds of the programs running).


I have updated chipset drivers as well. 


I cannot seem to locate the reason as to why the system crashes as i don't have any time to monitor things like voltages etc before the freeze happens. 


Some advise would be really welcomed as to what i can do to diagnose the issue and ultimately fix it!
