Hello everyone. As stated in the title, my Pc would freeze for seconds or crash any game I play (mostly Rust). I have the game running on low and recently wiped my hard drive. Also have the game on an ssd.

My current specs are:
CPU: Ryzen 7 2700x
RAM: 2x8 GB corsair vengeance lpx
PSU: Corsair Cx Series 600 watt
Motherboard: Msi b350m gaming pro
Graphics card: Msi gtx 1060
Storage: western digital blue 7.2
SSD: Samsung 860 Evo

The PSU and ram were replaced this week in hopes of fixing the issue but to no luck. Also, Windows 10 hasn't been that responsive, especially after a program crashes. Cpu temps and Gpu temps are good. Replaced CPU a couple of months back, that's when things started getting worse.

using docp/xmp ram profile?
check for bend pin on the cpu?
try with 1 stick of ram?
Wasn't using xmp, just turned it on and it still freezes the bios is up to date(not including the beta bios, which is newer). Removed one stick of ram and saw no change. (removed one, then changed one with the other) Haven' checked for bent pins I'll try doing that tomorrow and see if there are any.

Try more conservative RAM profiles/timings first (2133, then 2666 MHz?), as B350's were/are not known for being flawlessly compatible with all types of RAM at 3200 MHz, etc...
My ram was running at 2133 before turning on xmp, after xmp it became 2866 and have yet to see any change.

Thanks, everyone for the help. I put my OS on my SSD instead of the hard drive and everything seems to work. Haven't had any crashes or freezes.
