Question 6 Month Old PC Recently Started Freezing Up

Mar 9, 2020
Ryzen 5 1600 'AF', Gigabyte B450 Aorus M Micro ATX, Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16 GB 3200MHz, Sabrent Rocket 256GB M.2-2280 NVME, x2 Barracuda Compute 2TB, PowerColor Radeon RX 580 8GB, LINKUP PSU Extensions, Corsair CV 550W.

Recently built this PC back in May, had no issues, everything ran fine.

But I would occasionally receive a system freeze, the screen would go black, RGB would stop, and the two MOBO lights of 'CPU' and 'DRAM' would flash back and forth (like a railroad crossing.) A simple reboot would fix the problem. This would happen once every two months or so (not very often).

But now it's done it about three times this week, plus a new type of freeze where the MOBO lights never flash but the screen goes black, RGB stops on the colors it's on, etc. I've never once gotten the BSOD or had any Windows failures.

Bad MOBO? Pinched connectors? Faulty PSU extensions? Bad NVME?

What are your opinions on this? :unsure:
