ThrashZone Hi,
What security do you use ?
Try malwarebytes free scanner and see what it finds also adwcleaner post the scan results if any findings

You can also disable spectre with Inspectre and see if it helps if scanners are clean

Funguseater I'd do like everyone else, check Event Viewer, I was having this similar issues after Windows Update while gaming or just watching Youtube, it was something funky in the SATA AHCI power settings in my case, drive is going to sleep even if I put "never" go to sleep.

BroadPwns Could be a case same as mine as I'm using GTX660. Check the event viewer.

I haven't tried bare bones, but I know it still does it with just one drive connected and a single GTX 760.

The PSU is a Corsair CX750M. It has done it shorty after start up and it has done it hours after running. No real consistency on when it does it. I've gone days or even weeks with no issues and then it will come back all the sudden.

Usually it does hard lock. But I can still use the mouse. For example I can right click and click refresh and that box just stays on the screen.

I've also noticed when I've been able to open task manager up, the GPU usage is -1% which I thought was strange.

Windows 10 Pro, random stalling / locking up?

So long story short, I had this issue for months now and never really did anything about it. I figured it was just a screwed up install or something and it would fix itself when I formatted and fresh installed W10.

I just formatted and fresh installed about 2 hours ago, and I've had the same issue twice now. Basically I can be doing just basic tasks, youtube, browsing etc and it will slow down and eventually just stop responding. Videos stops, audio stops, but I can still move the mouse cursor around and I can ctrl+alt+del and open task manager. Task manager never actually opens however.

90% of the time I have to hard reset, but sometimes the screen will go black for a few seconds and come back up with everything fine.

I've tried GPU drivers, all HDDs/SSDs are good with no errors or warnings, no random usb devices plugged in etc. Temps are great as well.

Outside of that issue, I've never had any other issues.

i7 2600 (Non K)
4x4 1866
P8P67 Pro Rev 3.1
GTX 760 2GB SLI
9 total drives, 6 SATA HDDs, 2 SATA SSDs, and a single USB 3.0 external.
