Windows 10 Pro

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X


SSD as Primary

WD Green/Black as Secondary Drives
1100W PSU



The primary problem the computer is experiencing is an unusual and periodic freeze. This freeze never causes the computer to completely cease up and I've never had to reboot fully to fix it. There is no specific period of time that passes between each occurrence. Though the time interval when it does occur is usually fairly close. Somewhere between 10-20 seconds. There is no specific action that causes it too happen.



  1. If a video game is being played sometimes the video itself will completely pause (not often enough to be annoying, just frustrating). Or it may not affect the video game at all.
  2. If a movie is being played on the computer. The movie has never stopped playing. Even if the computer freezes the video will continue.

Attempted Resolutions:

  1. Complete and multiple reformat of the computer. Does not appear to be a software issue. Issues will present themselves shortly after OS load and way before any particular programs are loaded into the machine.
  2. Swapping/removing memory cards.
    1. It was impossible to determine whether it made anything 'better' or if I was just imagining less occurrences in my head. Results were not significant.
  3. Ran a complete memory test. No errors were reported.
  4. Ran a computer CPU stress test. No errors were reported.
  5. Removed (turned offline) various hard drives at random.
    1. It was impossible to determine whether it made anything 'better' or if I was just imagining less occurrences in my head. Results were not significant.
  6. Have not tried to switch out the primary SSD on the computer. Although CHKDSK cannot find anything wrong on any of the hard drives in the machine. 
  7. Temperature inside the computer is holding and is normal. 


Any thoughts. Ideas. Tests. That you may have would be appreciated. The problem is not annoying (or often enough) to have caused me to spend a larger amount of time on this issue. But also just frustrating enough to want it resolved.

I have made the changes mentioned. Will see if it makes any difference.
