    Reinstall gpu driver, so that you are using only the 3Dmark approved driver... (not the newest driver, the one listed)

    Check Cpu temps... run prime95 for at least 5 minutes, monitor temps using realtemp... (prime95 hits your cpu HARD on the second test, so your temps should be below 90... if not adjust... for purposes of max temp check five minutes will do...)

    reset ram speed to jedec or standard... 2133ddr4

    Complete reset your Bios... (move button cell battery, put it back in), press bios reset, load optimized defaults...

    Worst case scenario... reset everything to stock, erase everything, reinstall Win10... and steam games (BTW, sorry if i am assuming, but make sure everything on the computer is "real" and paid for... no "pirate" stuff.)

    If this process does not work ypu are SOL, and may need to get a technican in...
