Hello AMDers!


I've read a few other threads on this topic but didn't get much farther in solving my issue. I don't use an AMD based system but am troubleshooting one for a friend of mine as he bought the system on my recommendation.


CPU: 2700X (no overclock)

Cooler: Noctua L9i

Mobo: Asus X370-I (bios supports 2700x)

GPU: MSI RTX2070super

Ram: 16GB Adata XPG DDR4

PSU: Corsair SF600


Happy to provide other specs if requested.


Tried what seems like everything to get the computer to run properly but still runs into random freezing along the way in everything from video editing to gaming to even browsing the internet - not exclusively in high usage scenarios. It has been happening now for the last year or so and it seems nothing wants to work to fix the solution. Happens probably 10 times a day and it is incredibly annoying.


I have a similar system but on an Intel platform with the same PSU and have no issues. I don't believe the 105w tdp of the 2700x is making the issue as my 9600k is 95w. Doubt 10w makes the difference.


System has even been moved to an open test bench to eliminate heat as an issue but still doesn't seem to be doing it.
