Question PC Freezing Randomly When Playing Games

May 15, 2020
My PC randomly freezes when I play games even if I have just opened the game. The game music stops and i keep hearing the windows notification/error sound everytime i click. I cant do anything but to push the restart button on my case. I am not overclocking or other modifications on the system. It has not always been like this. I'm sure I have enough RAM and surpassed the system requirements. Sometimes it randomly freezes when i am not in game. Im not sure what the problem is

I have these hardwares:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz, 3408 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s) cpu
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 32.0 GB ram
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 gpu
Z170A GAMING M5 (MS-7977) motherboard
silverstone strider gold evolution 1000w psu
