    There's been issues with my kind of card before, you say? That's great ;~; though at least I could look around and try to update those drivers and see what happens.
    Why did you state people had issues with Corsair AX860i and you felt you did and this was cause of your issue if you do not even have this PSU, am i correct ? Yes been some issues around from drivers for AMD Radeon believe also will get error messages from certain .sys files part of the AMD Driver.

    Oh wait, sorry XD It seems I didn't properly do my research. I didn't realize my PSU was not one of the ones affected by the issue. A streamer told me that the issue explained in that link was likely the cause of my issue, and I guess I didn't check hard enough to see if my PSU in particular was listed. So I guess that's out of the question then.

    I assume so, making it confusing to help you if proper info is not given. So which PSU do you have, is it one listed here in your specs, best to update it here and in the posts as this helps with all aspects of your issues for us.

    I get no errors or BSOD at all, it just locks up where it is and I can't even move the mouse after a few seconds. I'll check out that link and see if any good comes of it.

    Edit: Wait no, sometimes there is an error if I can try to open a program or something after the lockup is "imminent." I don't know what it was, but next time it happens I'll post it here.

    Check your Event Viewer find it when right click the windows start button open it and select folder Custom Views open that and highlight Administrative events, look down list for any red errors. Many reasons as listed in that article can cause this. If no error messages from AMD card may not be that, but model is known to have issues with it's drivers.

    Latest AMD which is never updated enough Desktop

    Malware can be a cause too, even if you feel because having 1 Anti-Virus program keeps you completely safe.
    Try this with a scan Malwarebytes
    Try to also check your temps with this program, since building yourself you did apply thermal paste on processor. sometimes not done correct cause heat issues or even proper ventilation throughout the case. HWMONITOR | Softwares | CPUID

    I've already done multiple scans with Malwarebytes, as well as many other antivirus programs, even that Microsoft one that they always suggest on their forums. As far as temperature, I recall yesterday when I was looking around the BIOS settings it said the temp was about 35 degrees Celsius, though I could be off by a few degrees. Also I did apply thermal paste when installing the CPU.

    I'm looking around the event viewer and I can't seem to find anything related to what I think I saw when the lockups happened, so next time it happens I'll look again with hopefully better results. For now, I'll see about updating my GPU's drivers.

    Edit: Yeah, I installed that monitoring program you linked and my temperature seems to fluctuate from 30-40 celsius. It that high for someone who isn't overclocking?

    Overclocking, this i did not know although not familiar with doing overclocks and effects can have on a system. 30-40c is o.k., know what the CPU Package temps are ? Asked because overheating is one cause of freezes, since custom build and saying from beginning about certain knowledge you do not have made me question some of this. Also malware can cause feezes and lockups, glad you are clean.
