Hello,

I really could use some help!

My PC that I just built is experiencing some major freezes and odd behavior.

The PC freezes for .5 - 3 seconds and halts all input or holds down a key and types that key the duration of the lag/hitch. Sometimes when this occurs my headphone audio is lost or I lose control of my headset mic. This occurs during a game or even just browsing the web/light usage. I have updated drivers, at least all that make sense to me. Im at a loss as to what to do.... the only overclocking I did was to my RAM to get to 3600.

Worth mentioning this freezing did not occur in my last rig but the only parts that remain from the old build are the 4 data drives (2HDDs, 1 NvMe SSD, 1 SSD), and my 1070 GPU.

Let me know if there's more info I can provide.

PC Parts:
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core Processor
Noctua NH-D15 CHROMAX.BLACK 82.52 CFM CPU Cooler
Gigabyte X570 AORUS ULTRA ATX AM4 Motherboard
G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory
Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive + (Two HDDs and another SSD)
MSI GeForce GTX 1070 8 GB Video Card
Corsair RM (2019) 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply

Thanks

Latest Example:
With Discord open and a game running with a headset+mic
Game spins up and all audio is lost, then I am unable to speak with my mic
Leave the discord chat then rejoin and the mic might work or Ill need to play around with audio settings to get it back to work

Alls well for a short period of time then it happens again.

This behavior also occurs when Im only using Google Chrome and chating on a video call
