My problem is that my computer keeps freezing then my monitor loses signal shortly after when I play games. I am really desperate to fix my computer i've exhausted so many options from running Furmark for 45 mins to test GPU stability, Prime95 to test my CPU and Ram for 5 hours. I ran MSI afterburner while playing games and learned that even at temperatures below 60C on both GPU and CPU, my computer can still freeze during games. No errors/crashes found during stress tests
Prior to getting the RX 570 for my GPU and Seasonic S12II for my PSU, I only had the integrated graphics card and a generic 600w power supply. My computer also froze, but in a different manifestation. The screen would appear shattered with lines on it, then the sound will just loop. Also, I get blue screens with more than 10 different error types on some instances. This can happen anytime from an idle computer, games, browsing, and etc.
I first thought initially it was due to all the dust building up on my computer's components. I haven't cleaned it in several years. There were dust bunnies everywhere and the ram was coated with layers of dust. But then I did a major cleanup, and cleaned the CPU, the rams, and the motherboard (just wiped the board). But it still persisted.
I thought it was due to a faulty PSU as my computer is around 8 years old and a generic PSU would probably be failing already. But after getting a GPU and a good quality PSU, I still had hanging problems, but always only hangs during playing games completely then my monitor will lose signal in 10 seconds. Nothing more, no bluescreens and etc.
So I thought I should get myself a new motherboard unless someone tells me a otherwise. I am really desperate and frustrated and on a budget
GPU: Gigabyte RX 570
Ram: DDR3 4gb (2 sticks)
PSU: Seasonic S12II (650w)
I am also interested in getting a new SSD
SSD 970 EVO NVMe M.2 500GB so any recommendations would be great as well.
