PC freezing and looping sound / average fps ingame

  pai_ger 22:26 03 Nov 2018

So basically what is happing is that my PC is freezing while playing games and doing a very loud weird sound (which I assume is a just a short bit of sound getting looped).Also what is happening is that I get a lower average FPS in my games sometimes. Most of the time a restart fixes it but it's still very odd. In overwatch I sometimes go from 190-200 avg. to 120 avg. and even drop below 100.

EDIT:Most of the time the avg. FPS goes back to normal again after some time or just by a restart. But a restart doesn't fix it always.Also I am experiencing the random freeze problem since I have the pc but the avg FPS drop is new.
