    My computer has been freezing when I try to play any video game that puts enough load on my pc and I have been trying for multiple hours to fix it and have not been able to. The problem is when I play these games after even a couple minutes of playing I need to restart it as it will freeze and stay on that frame it froze on, I would really appreciate it if anyone knows a fix please help me as I have no idea why its not working. The temps seem to be find and there is no corrupt files when checking with sfc/scannow in command prompt.

    Here is my setup. I am having the same issue with my Pc, it completely freezes after playing games for 20-30 mins. I have checked my temps, checked registry files, ran disk check and system file check, all came back fine. All drivers are up to date to my knowledge. Not sure what is going on but I think its something to do with my motherboard, it is pretty old.
