I've replaced a motherboard and a CPU but still I've been suffered by a high frequency freeze problem.

Especially a freeze occurs as I use vscode. In sometime, just opened the vscode caused a freeze.

So the memory and the ssd are two of the remnants components which is(are) cause(s) a freeze.

Due to the economic problem, I can only replace one of memory and ssd.

Which should I replace(or attach a memory )?

The below components are mine.

CPU(i5 10th generation)



graphic card ( I newly attached it to the computer.)


The min temperature of the cpu is around 32 celcius

What I got typed

sudo hwinfo --short

  • What kind of CPU cooler do you use?

  • I use the cpu cooler which was attached with the CPU which I bought. Jun 28, 2021 at 11:06
  • The default one. Jun 28, 2021 at 11:06
  • Can you just install HWInfo on your pc and tell me the cpu temperatures?

I think none of them. I would reccomend spend some on a better cpu cooler. The boxed coolers from Intel are not so good. Try searching for a top-flow cooler like the Be quiet! Shadow Rock TF 2

Why I would reccomend this is that your cpu only runs at low clock speeds with underpowered cooling (or the boxed cooler). If the turbo boosts it to a high frequency, it can overheat, and starting programs with fast storage tends to use the cpu a lot. (booting visual studio 2019 uses my cpu close to 100% for a short time (ryzen 3 3100))

  • My cpu temperature still records around 32_c so I bet the problem is triggered by ssd or memory. Jul 3, 2021 at 9:31
  • BTW, I want to know your range of temperature of your cpu. Jul 3, 2021 at 9:33
  • My cpu can heat up to 80°C and cool down to 18°C (room temperature, only when off)

  • Yea, if it's cool, maybe indeed memory.... Can you try Corsair (LPX) RAM in dual channel instead of that random cheap stick?

  • Ok I may try it. Jul 4, 2021 at 2:59

I mounted this dual-memory to my motherboard and the problem of freezes seemingly has been resolved.
