Check its log when it has a mini freeze and should let you know what driver/program was called at the time.

Post screens of the health tab from HDtune for both of your HDDs.

Also Geek Squad is ********. They don't do any real repairs there, they just ship them out to real repair people. Their assessment of this issue is borderline meaningless.

Are either of your HDDs western digital Blue?
ill try hdtune thanks. *EDIT* BOTH OF MY HDDS ARE seagate ST2000DM001. My WD is not installed atm*. It is just weird it is happening now because this problem did not arise when it was in my old build. I changed the processor/mobo/heatsink/m.2/ram nvme and now im having this issue.

There were no issues like this with the 4770k/msi mobo/phantek heatsink/no m.2/ddr3 ram build from before.

ALSO, i did reinstall windows completely and i didnt have any issues for a while but then i started getting issues every 2 hours this time. gunna keep testing. thanks.

Hmm, interesting. Drives look good. Still could be one of them. Try disconnecting both drives and see if the issues still occurs.

For an issues like this, if it's not the drive it will be pretty hard to pin down, but my next guess would be the power supply.

The timing makes me thing some software app is running every so often. Anything in event log every hour? AV Scan?

Hi, have you tried looking at the Windows Event Viewer to find an error code?

Good Luck.

Yes that is what im thinking as well BUT I am not sure what happened, but i have not received any freezes all day. I was still receiving freezes after a reinstallation of windows but a day later, the freezes APPEARED to stop. Going to see what happens from here on and will update.

Yes, my friend said something about it being a possible app, although, when i check event viewer, there is nothing that coincides with the freezes.

Thanks, and yes i have. Unfortunately, there was nothing in event viewer that coincides with the freezes at all.

BUT like i said above, i miraculously have been receiving no freezes as of late and will see if that changes in the near future and will update. Thank you.

This is a long shot, but after building my newest system, I had occasional freezes until I discovered that it was being caused by one of my drives (an older SATA DVD drive). Apparently, it didn't like the particular SATA chipset/driver that was behind the SATA port it was plugged into (something to do with some older standard the old drive was using). When I unplugged the DVD drive, the freezes went away. I have since replaced the DVD drive with a new one.

Storage usually is the cause of most sluggish data transfers or odd lockups/hangups.

check drive temperatures and see if they're running within limits, most likely are but deffo worth a check. also do some error checking on them to ensure they're not on their last legs.
