Windows Freezing on new build



Hey guys. I just put a new build together. Every hour or so Windows will completely lock up and I cannot move my mouse or anything. It freezes and then comes back to normal then freezes again then it is okay for a little bit, then the problem happens again. Here is my build:


Mobo: ASUS Z690-E

CPU: i5 12600k


RAM: G-Skill Trident Z 6400 DDR5

PSU: 850W

Windows 10 Home


I have updated BIOS, Reinstalled windows, and ran Windows memory diagnostics with no errors.



This is very annoying and I cant figure out what it is so any help is appreciated.


I did not use a Contact plate for my CPU, as I forgot to put it in but I do have one I could throw in if anyone thinks this could be the cause of this?

Something is causing it - either hardware, either driver. First, I would suggest is to remove any removable devices like usb flash if it's plugged or controller and etc and see if it helps, if not, you need to check every hardware one by one. Don't exclude storage.
