Ever since I upgraded my cpu to a i7 9700k and reset my pc I get random freezes that force me to power off my pc. Happens when im playing games so im guessing its when its under load? Maybe turn down the clock speed on cpu?
Ok so I dont have any overheating issues after stress testing. My guess is that its a power issue or even an issue with the motherboard which is also brand new with my cpu. Also I just upgraded to a rtx 2080 from a gtx 1070, and the freezing still happens. Heres my specs:Yes - turn down the clock speed to determine if the freezes stop.
Post other hardware specs: drives, GPU, RAM, PSU (make, model, wattage, age, condition), fans, etc..
Also tally up the wattage requirements for all of the pc's components. Use the high values. Add 25% and compare wattage total to the current PSU's capabilities.
