Hey guys I built a gaming PC with an i7 8700, gtx 1080ti, 16 GB corsair vengeance, asrock z370 extreme4, Samsung 970 evo nvme. PC worked great since I put it together until this week. In games like battlefield 4, ac odyssey, and world of tanks it freezes. I have to ctrl alt del, sign out then back in to get anything to respond. Did the windows reset where it deletes everything as if you are staring it for the 1st time. Tried again and problem still persists. Ran a few 3d mark test and got a 9k+ score (if that matters). Not sure what's going on here. Also all stock no OC. Thanks.

Run OCCT and check your CPU temps the stock cooler will not cool that processor.

Sorry forgot to mention, the CPU is being cooled by a 212 evo.

I'd try a memory test like memtest64 and maybe a few hours of a stress test such as prime95. If those fail then you have a hardware issue (or maybe bios setup). If they are OK then I'd be thinking about either temperatures, or windows drivers.
