RDR2 - whole system freezes

so I've seen it was here many times, however I don't think I have the same issue. I can play constantly for 3-4 hours and then game frezees, anything responds and gotta do a hard reboot. Sometimes the game freezes even after few minutes of gameplay. It always happens random and only while playing, never in cutscenes, menus, loading etc.

Three days ago, I moved the game from HDD to SSD and was able to play 5 hours constantly without any freeze. I usually played every day about 6 hours for three last days with any problem but yesterday, the game frozen again after 4 hours of gameplay. When I came back, the game frozen again in one hour.

Things I've tried to fix it:
  • moved game from HDD to SSD
  • reinstalled AMD Grahpic Drivers in safe mode
  • removed 4GB RAM of my 12GB and left 8GB only
  • HDD defrag
  • disabled Steam overlay
  • added RDR2 folder to exeptions in Kasperky
  • verified game files integrity in Steam
  • Open Hardware Monitor - saving log file with temps of GPU (temperatures, fan are normal)

My PC specs:

  • WIN 10 64bit
  • i5 2400 3.4Ghz
  • AMD RX560 4GB
  • 12GB RAM
  • ASUS P8H61-M LX3

RDR2 is the ONLY game I suffer the problem with system freeze. Other games work normal. I'm really desperated and dunno who I should contact. As R* support doesn't respond, I'd like to ask you guys about some advice. Do you have any idea how can I fix it?

Thanks :giggle:
