Question Programs are crashing/freezing, or not responding ?

Mar 27, 2023
Recently I've been experiencing weird stutters and random program crashes (mostly) while playing games. The game (e.g CSGO) would crash either randomly, or freeze after almost every round for about 10 seconds. I haven't noticed a drastic FPS drop, the components aren't overloaded, but even after closing the game and opening Google Chrome, it continues to go into "not responding" for a few seconds.

So far I've only tried running virus scans with various programs (Malwarebytes, HitmanPRO, Windows Defender...) but no threats were found. In BIOS is A-XMP enabled.

Every help is appreciated!
