I bought a new computer 3 months ago that I use for work. The computer should be complete overkill for what I use it for but that was intentional so that I don't have any issues. When I get all of my programs up and running, the computer will lock up for 5-10 seconds and then unfreeze for a few seconds. It will continue to do so until I force shut down some apps (usually shutting down chrome fixes it). I use it for trading and have 8 monitors and 2 gpus. Most of what I use is just Excel and A LOT of Chrome sessions (however I have reproduced the issue using only other browsers). The issue will only happen whenever I get everything up and running that I need so it's definitely something that kicks in while the usage is higher (even though I'm only using up like 30% of memory or 15% of cpu on the performance monitor). Some days it might take 5 hours for the problem to start and some days it's within the first 20 minutes but once it starts it typically persists.
A few of the things we have tried to resolve it are - running a Memory test (came back perfect). A clean install of windows 10. Plugged power cord directly in the wall bypassing backup batter incase there were power issues). Unplugged 7 of the 8 monitors after the problem started and it kept happening until I shut down software.
Anyone have any advice? I'm going to apologize in advance that I'm pretty novice with this stuff so some of the questions you may have might be over my head. In general, the computer I should handle the tasks I'm running with flying colors (as did computers I had in the past). I will copy the specs below
