Hello Guys,

i have a rather odd problem with my new PC and i just cant explain myself why its happening.

Since i couldnt relate the problem to a specific application and the behaviour sounds like its related to the CPU i am asking here for help.


My PC almost "freezes" 2-3 times per week on random occasions(gaming, browsing or netflix) for about 10-15 and after that it is working fine again. First i hard reseted but now i just go and make me some food or tea and when i come back everything is normal again.


By "freezing" i mean that the PC gets down to about a frame every 30 sec and it is still controlable. Its like the CPU is throtteling to 10 Mhz if you know what i mean.



My System Specs:

Windows 10 Education

Ryzen 3600

Asus X570 Strix-E

32 GB of 3200 CL14

RTX 2070

5 Harddrives (nvme,hdd, ssd)
