So I built this computer around January of this year. The components are listed here: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/V3RT1G0/saved/dWd8Mp

Recently, while playing games, my computer fans will rev up very high, then suddenly fall back to quiet. Occasionally, while in-game my usb devices will reset (headset, mouse, keyboard) and my computer will freeze for a second or two. It is more common that the above happens when I alt-tab out of the game.

I have monitored my GPU and CPU temperatures and they are always around the 60-65 celsius range. I have turned off the option that allows the computer to turn off usb devices to save power (within device manager). I have run a full windows defender scan, but nothing came up.

I'm at a loss on what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Haha, thanks for your reply. That actually turned out to be the issue... I was running a bios version from 8/31/2020. You have some good intuition.
