So my PC freezes at random intervals but I have no clue why. I did a clean install of windows thinking it was a software issue but that didn’t work.

I have had this custom built since December 11th, the first freeze which required a hard restart was December 22nd, after a hard restart (holding down the power button) it worked fine for a few days until Christmas Day the 25th. Since then my PC has been freezing more often, around every 2-90 minutes. Sometimes I am able to play a couple games of COD before a freeze.

Specs:
Samsung 860 evo 250gb (windows)
asus tuf 3080
Gigabyte z490 aorus elite ac mobo
32gb gskill ripjaws V 3200mhz
i7 10700k
DEEPCOOL GAMERSTORM RGB 240mm CASTLE 240EX Liquid Cooler
Corsair RM750 psu

CPU and GPU temperatures at idle and load?

Did you try running the RAM at 2933MHz just to see if it was RAM instability?

CPU and GPU temperatures at idle and load?

Idle temps hover around 30C for CPU and around 35C for GPU. Load temps are fine I think for the CPU around 70-75C and GPU around 75C.

And I have tried running the ram and the default 2133mhz but I still experience freezes unfortunately.

Temps? Pump to 100%

Turn off XMP profiles if enabled. Reset default values.

Check all connectors, reseat RAM.
I tried reseating the ram, set to default values, reset CMOS. The temps are okay I think around 30C idle for the CPU and the GPU slightly higher around 35C. Load temps for the CPU are about 75C under heavy load, and GPU under heavy load around 75C too.

Try running the system with only 1 stick in A2. If it freeze again try the other stick.

Do a Memtest86 on the ram when xmp is not on.
I forgot to mention in my original post that I ran memtest with the 32gb gskill ram for 4 cycles over 7 1/2 hours with no errors. My bad.
