Hello,

This issue started around 2 weeks ago. My PC freezes randomly and haven't found any solutions to this.
Never had blue screen or overheating crashes. This just freezes my PC totally and I have to force shut down it.
This have happened 6 times in total, 3 of them have been after Pubg sessions, after shutting game down...10 minutes later PC has froze. Hard to tell how this happens, it happens usually when I am taking a smoke.

(26th, Jan)
Made a new point:
Under pressure (Tried GPU Stress test), not sure is it PSU or GPU making electric sound, hard to say what kind of sound, but like "iiiiii TSI iiii" then sometimes stops for 0.2-0.5 seconds and continues. This doens't happen while normal use.
Tried CPU/RAM Stress test, this noice didn't appear during that.

I've tried CPU / SSD / RAM stress tests, but they didn't cause any kind of crashes.
Drivers are up to date.
Tried changing RAM from 3000mhz to 2133mhz.

Specs:
CPU: Intel I7-8700k - 3.7ghz
GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 1070 TI 8GB
RAM: Corsair 2x8GB 3200mhz
PSU: Cooler Master - MasterWatt Lite 700W

Try:
-deleting all the temp/ %temp% / prefetch files.Dont forget to empty the recycle bin after that.
Do you have a overclock on your GPU?
I'll try that.
I have Asus own OC presets, used them for long time. This freezing issue also appears without using OC.

Is this a new pc,or have you slowly upgraded it overtime.
If you did upgrade it,what did you have before this new stuff?
This PC is self built end of 2016, after that haven't upgraded.
Only thing I've bought is new SSD, but issues didn't appear after that.

After you end a game session open up Task Manager and have the Process tab open and sorted by CPU use...you might get lucky and have the screen freeze showing what the system is running when it happens.

Little add to this issue:
Couple days ago when I was playing Pubg, my 2nd screen shutted itself down for 2-5 seconds randomly, this issue never happened before.
2nd screen is pretty new and it's plugged in to GPU.

Try dropping the power limit on the gpu to 50%.

You should include the make and model of the psu.
Added PSU model to thread, thank you.
