Welcome tot he forums, newcomer!

550 W is the wattage while CoolerMaster is the brand of the PSU. What is the model for the PSU? Also, which version of Windows 10 are you working with? 100% disk usage is a sign of a memory leak, due to an OS corruption, which is resolved by reinstalling the OS.

Might want to make sure you're on the latest BIOS update for your motherboard prior to proceeding with an OS reinstallation. Use Windows Media Creation TOols to fabricate your bootable installer.

Will try later I'm at work now ..
Before I had both fortnite and nba2k20 on my hdd Toshiba p300 the games that were causing this problem . Today I installed fortnite on my ssd and nba2k20 on my hdd. Then I played fortnite for an hour and a half it didn't make my disks usage go 100% up and didn't freeze, I quit fortnite then started nba 2k20, 20 minutes in the game it froze again

As a test can you uncouple the hdd, and see if the problem comes back?
I got a brand new one Toshiba p300. Tommorow I'm gonna replace it with the old one install one of the games and try it out and see if it is still a problem .. if it is maybe I'll try one of the western digital hdd.
