COMPUTER KEEPS FREEZING

Hello,

So, since july, my computer's screen keeps freezing every few seconds. The freeze is during about 0,25 to 0,75 seconds and it's often while gaming. The temperature of my CPU is between 70°C and 85°C while gaming. All my drivers are updated. What can I precisely do to stop freezes?

Thanks for your time!

Add details and story.

This is like "my car doesn't start" but no make, model, history and more.

It's also best to share what you've tried since July so we know what doesn't work.

Other infos

PC Specs:
- CPU : i5-9600k
- GPU : ASUS GTX 1660 6GB
- RAM : G.Skill Ripjaws 16GB (2 times 8GB)
- MEMORY : SSD SATA WD BLUE 1TB

I've tried:
- Decrease in game quality sertings
- Change NVIDIA sertings to get max performance
- Remove dust on GPU, Power Supply and DisplayPort
- Update drivers
- Update Windows
- Resetting the PC with the method which allows me to keep only the files (documents)
- Keep an eye on GPU (78 To 83°C) and CPU (70 To 85°C) temp while gaming

I think that's all.

I built the PC by myself at the beginning of July.

Freezing? Near the boiling point of water

That's 185F in degrees. Obviously your CPU is getting quite hot. Time to clean the HSF and put on some new thermal paste.
