My computer keeps freezing on a random color, help!

So my computer keeps randomly turning its screen into a solid color. This can vary from light blue to green to navy blue. It seems to happen randomly with no pattern at all. I could be just talking on discord or on Roll 20 and it will just freeze up. While frozen the computer takes no commands and loses all sound or other capabilities. It seems to be happening more frequently as well. Help!

Hardware parts list is:
MSI gtx 1070
GIGABYTE H1120 motherboard
1 TB Hard Drive
i5 intel 7600k
650 watt power supply

also I know it isnt temperature as my software reports it at 40 degrees celecius

No sound cuts out as well. I will be on discord when it happens then BLAMO, the screen is yellow and the sound is gone. Almost like a blue screen of death but with a brick of solid color. Also I know it isnt the gpu because I ran a benchmark with it on FurMark and it did fine, also Afterburner told me that I only used up to 50% of my powersupply when doing the benchmark.

go into BIOS

to the temperature section, see what it reports. What you describe is most often overheated CPU dropping out, or a cut off setting on CPU temp is set too low, or the PSU cuts off until it's protection feature allows it to reset after cooling down.

do you have another monitor

or TV with proper fittings you can use to see if the same thing happens with it, to see if monitor or PC is the problem?

Since you have an igp remove the gpu and plug the monitor into the mobo.....test
