Try in this order (sorry if you have already done some of these):

  1. Update BIOS
  2. Update Drivers
  3. I am not sure what Gigabyte uses for Memory tweaking, but there should be a XMP type of profile setter, you may have to Google it. Essentially this makes your memory run at its fullest potential without OC.
  4. Try re-seating your RAM
  5. Try your other two RAM slots ( also make sure your ram is spaced one apart to utilize dual channel)
  6. Try putting those games on your SSD.
    1. The two games you mentioned run best on a SSD. Minecraft for loading and generating textures and parts of the world and Forknife because it NVIDIA Reflex settings/"texture streaming"/RTX/etc.
  7. Monitor your temps and see if you are getting temp spikes that would cause thermal throttling.
