As the title says, as I am playing games or watching youtube or sometimes even just sitting at my desktop, the computer will freeze up and nothing will work, then the screen tears for a moment and the audio gets all distorted sounding like it is summoning demons. This only happens for at most 2-3 seconds before continuing normal usage. Any ideas of what could be the problem? Can provide whatever if needed, just not even sure how to track down what the problem is to fix it. Makes using the computer a bit frustrating when it happens. Thank you for any help, it really is much appreciated.
CPU: i7 7700k
Graphics: ASUS ROG-STRIX-GTX1080TI-O11G
Motherboard: ASUS MAXIMUS X HERO (WiFi AC)
RAM: G.SKILL TridentZ Series 16GB DDR4 3200

I am using the most recent BIOS for my motherboard, and AFAIK also have the most recent driver for my graphics card.
