pc keeps freezing

Not open for further replies.
Hi everyone i have a really annoying problem recently whenever i play any game at all i can play it for a while usually 30 mins to 2 hours before the pc freezes completly and i dont know what is the problem i checked the temp using msi afterburner and other apps under load but it is all normal the temp usually between 50 to 60 Celsius and yes i tried formatting the pc and my windows 10 pro is original but that didn't help at all even when i lower the settings all to low in Valorant which is a game that doesn't need that much performance the pc still freezes i checked the ram it is connected correctly and i double checked that all the drivers are up to date here are my specs:
CPU: Intel core i7 6700k
GPU: nvidia geforce gtx980
motherboard: gigabyte techonology Z170-D3H-CF
Power supply: cooler master 700 W

I also attached a photo for the system when i play valorant on the lowest settings

The most likely cause of the issue, you can count on one hand how many PSUs that CM have ever made that were good enough to support a decent add on video card with their best effort being way back in 2013 when they used Seasonic innards in a few of their V series.

Try swapping in a good quality brand 500W or above PSU for testing purposes if you can, something Gold efficiency rated would be best but for testing a Bronze rated unit will do.
