High possibility.
Bad hdd
CPU fan not cooling CPU so check.
Check ram get 1 out test then switch.0

If you over clock it over over than CPU falls ill no prescription will be available from manufacturer

Thanks for the reply.
Something I didn't clarify is that I have ever clock the CPU.

How could I check which one of the HDD is failing?

CPU temps are at 35C at almost most of the time.

So try to work with only one ram at time to see behavior?

Okay you mean the system drive then, I already change it actually, I thought is was the SSD failing and change it to M2. But the issue is still going so we can rule out that.

I will try with the ram as you said.

Take everything out.
Leave 1 ram
1 hdd
If u got vga on motherboard get gpu out.
Leave nothing and start it now u got simple setup running light wight
Try from there test parts switch parts keep good ones aside

If u got more than one hdd or ssd try out one by one keep all parts out till u find out which one has issues.
Open rask manager on each start up and do anything play around monitor the %

If u think part is good put that part aside and put in another one loop process
