Stick with 3dmark or Unigene benchmarks for the GPU and Cinebench or OCCT for the CPU.

and bad driver installs could cause the OS the stutter/freeze. Could be a bad GPU driver install. that would be the first one i would look into
I know but thats exactly why I used it over occt, I wanted to test maximum extreme conditions and if I break it in the process then thats my bad, ran at 70C and around 108% powerdraw all the time so doubt I damaged any caps, mosftets of vrams. but normally would run occt to test psu and cpu.

All drivers are fine, haven't made any changes in at least few months.

Seriously though - is it only when you're playing music or it happens regardless of what programs or processes are running? Just trying to eliminate some possibilities.
lol :P

but srsly, I found that in most cases it occured when I opened a new tab in chrome while having spotify or youtube.

so far I know its not hardware or drivers and will look into software side of things, starting with changing browser and see how that turns out. I limit most processes I never use + monitor useless junk on startup so that shouldn't be an issue.
