Built a new system a week ago running windows 7 professional on a 6600k in a z270 board, and a few days ago it developed a new fault where it becomes unresponsive seemingly out of nowhere- i'll just be clicking around on a window on the desktop when suddenly the system freezes. The screen's still there but i can't click on anything, just move the mouse around and it won't recognize any inputs from the keyboard, not even control alt delete. The only fix is to hit the reset button or hold down the power button till its forced to shut off, but that doesn't stop it, it's happened 3 or 4 times over the past 2 days. There's no visual or audio cue when it happens, it just suddenly stops working, and it hasn't happened in games or any fullscreen application so far, just when i'm clicking on windows on the desktop, but that could just be coincidence.
