Windows 10 PC Random hang when playing games

Hi all,

I have a custom built PC with Windows 10 Home, my PC will randomly hang/ crash when I'm playing the games and I have to manually turn off the PC as everything just stops working.

I rebuilt the PC 2 times just to check that I dint make some stupid mistake on the build. I have also tried a new power supply, full memory diagnostics, windows reinstalls, chkdsk, sfc /scannow and disabling HD Audio from reinstalling on BIOS, regedit, device installation setting and none of them stopped it from reinstalling so I downloaded gpedit.msc and turned of automatic windows updates, this stops it from downloading but yet I still have the problem.

Any recommendations are welcome!
