everything seems great, I'm in a game..everything is beautiful. i quit game..no problem..then..it just freezes up..not always..but often enough to be worrisome. I have to cold reboot..my signature is the system. I have updated everything I can think of..it was finished a day ago.

fresh windows 10 pro install, zero chance of malware. only steam and rockstar apps and component apps. possible temp..small form factor, but it freezes when it isn't being taxed. but possible cpu temp problem, doubtful it's the gpu, it has unrestricted air flow..possible that my rgb ram is blocking some of the wraith spire air flow..which presents a whole other list of problems, it is very expensive ram.

so, in the end, got low profile ram, upped it to 32gb, got a sweet noctua cpu cooler and 2 noctua 80mm rear exhaust fans. problem solved. she's a BEAST now!
