Question PC freezes while playing certain games, no apparent reason after tests.

Feb 20, 2019
It started a month or so, playing PUBG Mobile on PC would make everything freeze, forcing me to perform a hard reset. Freezes everything, even sound. Tried Ring of Elysium (another Battle Royale), same thing happened.

Now here's where it gets interesting: it doesn't happen with any other game. REmake 2? Nope, AC: Black Flag? Nope, Skyrim? Nope, GTA V? Nope.
And even more, before that, let's say... two months ago, I could totally play PUBG Mobile without a problem. It started out of nowhere a month ago or so.
Ran IntelBurn and Heaven Benchmark, and even Prime95... no freezes.
Temps are within the safe limits.
PSU, MOBO and RAM are brand new.

Here's my specs:

  • Phenom II X6 1100t 3.3GHz (3.7GHz turbo) (Safe temp: 62c. My temp: ~55c)
  • EVGA GTX 550ti 1GB (Safe temp: 80c. My temp: 65c~70c)
  • Corsair Vengeance 8GB RAM DDR3 1600MHz
  • PSU Corsair 650W.
  • Windows 10 LTSC x64.
All the temps are fine, no overclocks whatsoever.

I can play Skyrim, Black Flag, RE2... as long as I want. 8 hours, you name it.
But PUBG doesn't last more than 3, 4 matches. Doesn't last a single one if playing in a full group.

I can't put my finger on where I could be the problem when everything doesn't show any sign of anomaly during tests and gaming sessions.
"Funny" how it only happened with online games/battle royale.
