Hello, I recently built a new pc (specs listed below) After installing windows 10 pro via a USB onto a samsung SSD It has been freezing or crashing while trying to install drivers and other software. It seems to work fine for about 5 minutes after boot up then while downloading or installing a file it will freeze completely or reset itself. 

There are no error messages that display and it worked fine during the BIOS setup without freezing or crashing, the problem seemed to occur after installing windows. I have not gone over much troubleshooting as of yet but will tonight after work. Nothing is OC on the board.


any info or suggestions appreciated, thanks!

Boot your computer with KNOPPIX Live CD and use the computer for a while to see if issue persist in KNOPPIX Live CD and if it does then its a faulty hardware causing the issue.
