HI! I recently built this computer and I've been having issues with it! so sometimes everything freezes and I cant do anything and Im obligated to force restart the computer. Also when I record gameplay with streamlabs I get hickups. The recording setting are not even high. I really need help. please and thank you!

As far as recording, make sure you are using your GPU for the encoding and not the CPU/Software, its much more efficient.

What Power supply do you have?

What BIOS version are you running?

Make sure you are running the latest GPU drivers and have installed all the necessary MOBO drivers https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/B450M-DS3H-rev-10/support#support-dl-driver
The Chipset is the most important one. However I would be sure to install the LAN and Audio as well.


Finally did you do a clean installation of Windows when you built this computer, or did you recycle an old HDD/SSD with Windows already installed? Running Windows from a previous computer will cause random issues and makes it nearly impossible to run down the problem.

Poor consistency
The range of scores (95th - 5th percentile) for the Team T253X2512G 512GB is 63.7%. This is a particularly wide range which indicates that the Team T253X2512G 512GB performs inconsistently under varying real world conditions.
