Try using DDU to clean your system of leftovers then try again

I'd make sure all cables from PSU to any endpoint are very snug in addition to anything connected to te motherboard. If they are loose, could cause the system to freeze. It'd be mostly sata cables, i had a "locked" sata cable, but it was actually ever so slightly bent on the pin side and was just enough to cause my system to freeze at random irregular intervals. Swapped it out and problem never occured again.

After that, it's either hardware related like memory or GPU, and other software options would be you or Windows somehow really messed up playing with drivers and it's causing crashes. If in safe mode with drivers disabled it fails, i'd lean towards hardware or a Windows update like the recently released Anniversary update for W10. It has caused problems for some.

I had similar issues a few months back not freezing but random restarts followed by boor failures, took me a week of testing to identify the seemingly good psu was the cause
