Hi!I hope it's not the wrong category to ask this.

My pc has the following:
  • AMD FX 6300
  • AMD R7 370 NITRO 2GB
  • Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P Motherboard
  • HyperX Fury Black 8GB DDR3 1866 MHz CL10
  • SIRTEC High Power HPQ 500BR H125 Power Supply
  • Kingston SSD 240 GB (a few months old)
  • And a 1TB Hitachi Hard Disk(I bought it in 2015)
I also use 2 monitors a 32 inch and a 14 inch.

My problem is random freezes.
The freezes can happen right after I start my computer(this is when it's happening almost all the time) and random during the day.
It doesn't matter if it's in idle or while watching a movie or while working.It will freeze in any circumstances.The freeze usually takes between 15s to 30s to 1 minute.
It's really frustrating and I dont know what to do anymore.I updated the bios,the firmware of the ssd,the graphics card drivers,scanned with Malwarebytes and Bitdefender and nothing seemed to work.
The temps of the graphics card and processor are normal :41 Celsius degrees for the graphics card and 22 for the processor in idle at the time of writing this.
I also checked to see if the SSD its in a SATA3 port and since my motherboard has only SATA3 ports that wasnt the issue.I saw a post that was saying to change from AHCI to IDE but I don't know if that's the right move since it will slow down my SSD.
Do you guys have any ideas?

Try different PSU
clean up the GPU and ram contacts (pencil eraser)
remove the old HDD and boot.
remove the old monitor and boot
AHCI is faster than IDE!
clean up all the dust in the casing (turn off and unplug the power from the wall socket)
check the power cable to the CPU and GPU make sure secure.
If not sure unplug and replug in.
check all the power cable and interface cable to all the harddisk
Worse case removes everything out the casing and starts without anything plug accepts the memory, GPU, and CPU fan.

It didnt really worked out.
I cleaned my whole pc(gpu and ram contacts included).
I removed the old monitor and the old HDD.
The cables are good,I couldnt find a damaged one.
I cant test another PSU but whats the chance that the PSU is the problem?
Do you have any other ideas of what I should do?
Should I do a clean install of the Windows or the problem is in the hardware?
Thanks for the reply btw.

Try using memtest to see if there's any issue with the Ram or ask a friend to give you a PSU and Graphics card or you could give the PC to a technician they have spare parts to test it out
Apparently one of the solutions that simonyeeklang listed worked.I only had 1 freeze since yesterday so I guess something worked.Thanks for trying to help me everyone!Take care!
