    Check your temps for cpu while in game after about 5 minutes. It could be getting hot and throttling back because of that and then causing the freezing.

    My CPU is at about 53 F as i open the game and when i play it goes to 70 -80 F. I have downloaded MSI Afterburner and raised my fan speed to about 85 but it still freezes and crashes.

    That’s why. Your CPU is overheating and throttling itself back to prevent damage. Your cpus max temp is about 68-70C. That’s with running a stressing program like Prime95. You need to check your system to make sure the case fans are oriented correctly for proper airflow. You want it to suck air in from the back and exhaust it from the top and/or front depending on how your case is designed.

    You then need to make sure you don’t have a faulty CPU fan as well. If everything above looks correct, then you may want to consider removing the old thermal paste and replacing it with new thermal compound, remembering to make sure you clean both the CPU cooler and CPU itself properly before adding the new paste. You need to use just the right amount of paste as well cause too little or too much can both cause this issue.
