Hi There! So.

My PC Since i built it has always had problems where it will randomly freeze up for like 20seconds at a time then unfreeze randomly, especially if im playing a game (But not only when gaming, just happens most often)

I have tried many things to find and or fix the issue and im stuck on what else to try or what might be the problem

Specs
CPU: Ryzen 7 2700x
GPU: Strix Gaming 2060 OC (3 fan)
PSU: Corsair CX750 (Replaced from VS650 to see if that was the problem)
CASE: Corsair SPEC-DELTA Carbide Series, RGB Tempered Glass Mid-Tower ATX Gaming Case - Black
CPU COOLER: Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4
STORAGE: 4TB WD Red NAS HDD, 500GB WD Blue NVMe, 250GB Samsung SSD
MOTHERBOARD: Asus Prime B350-PLUS

I have tried replacing my GPU with my old one, nothing
I have ran MemTest and tried 1 RAM at a time, nothing
I bought the new HDD and NVMe and unplugged my old samsung SSD to see if it was t he problem, nothing
Updated my BIOS and all my drivers, nothing
Checked temps during lags and heavy loads, all very cool, no high temps above 60C max on cpu or gpu
