Default Random freezes! Help!

I have my custom built system with an AMD FX6350 CPU, Corsair Vengeance Ram, and an EVGA GTX 950 SSC card. It's been working fine for some time but recently has been experiencing random freezes. By random, I mean it can happen during gaming, downloading a file, surfing, watching a Youtube video or even just at idle! I have checked the BIOS for the most up to date version, all drivers, software etc. are also up to date. There has been no indication of any thermal issues when monitored with various software, including what came with the CPU. Voltages, everything seem normal.

I've run out of things to look for! I don't know if anybody can suggest what else to look for, but I'm really at the end of my rope. I'm considering possibly reinstalling Windows 10, or I could update the system to a nice shiny new CPU but that's going to be some serious pennies for me for me to pony up! I still have my Windows 7 prebuilt running running along side of it and it has been running like a trooper! And it's at least 10 years old!
What are anybodies thoughts? Could there be a software conflict somewhere?
Thanks

When was the last time you took the panels to the tower off and use compressed air and spray all the fans, including the one over the processor and heat sink, and spray down all the circuit boards?

I do that once a month and we keep a clean house but you will be surprised what comes out of it when you spray it:

dust crumped together that looks like laundry dryer lint, sometimes it comes out from one side of the heat sink and processor when you spray into it from the opposite side.

I spray the blade on the fan until the force of the compressed air makes it turn and keep it turning until I don't see a cloud of dust coming off it.

Also when was the last time you emptied all your Windows Temp and Internet Temporary folders and cleared your history?

Finally go into device manager and make sure every item listed is showing this device is working properly under each item's properties.

You sound smarter at computers than I am; but ^^^ works wonders. Try the program ccleaner let it clean everything including registry. Then Defrag.I hav had computers go from wtf... to great a few times with something that basic.

If you end up wanting to try it I can share 1 pro version via pm.

I stop using any cleaners program because they will remove useful stuff especially in Registry and you have no way of knowing what they removed.

Dust buildup to the point of becoming laundry lint is the biggest killer of computers.

I think I'd try two things: test your RAM with memtest. And also run a system file checker. Run command as admin, then use the following command sfc/scannow

Its a very good idea to open your computer box and clean out the dust periodically. If its not the static caused by the dust build up run a scan on your HD to make sure the HD doesn't have any bad sectors. If it does replace the HD. You should be able to clone the old drive to the new drive if it is the HD causing the problem...

Does it freeze and then unfreeze, or is it simply locked up and you have to reboot?

Have you checked Windows Event Viewer?

Also, open Task Manager and watch what processes are running when it occurs.

Not a good idea. Free spinning the fans can damage the bearings.

I'd give that suggestion a +1.

I had a similar problem with my machine about a year after it was built. memtest showed the ram to be defective. Changed the ram and it's been perfect for 4 years now.

Running the file checker now - I'll see how that goes. Memtest - That gets loaded to a bootable thumb drive? I need to probably pick up a clean one tomorrow.

Also: can RAM go bad? What I put in this thing wasn't cheap and prices have gone up since then. I paid $77 for my kit, and now the exact same set is now $179 at Microcenter and $144 from Amazon

*Update:File checker finished and found no "integrity violations"
