do you have ai overclock enabled? turn it off if so and try that, update bios to latest ver or reset. if still freeze then download all drivers from support page and put on a usb then do a windows reinstall with fresh upto date drivers, still having issues reseat all parts/cables. if all that fails then could be a usb device or dodgy component

also the drivers you install from asus are usually blocked
or use the drivers on this forum which are more upto date

Assuming your power supply isn't the problem and you have updated to the latest UEFI version, It could be a short between the motherboard and your case. If you're up for it take it apart, loosen all the motherboard screws, give the board a wiggle (or better: remove it completely to check for anything behind it that could cause contact) and then tighten down the screws again. If you really want to know, remove the MB from the case all together and set it up on your desk, just place it on the box it came in or some other non conductive material and try that.

I doubt this is the problem but since you said that after you reinstalled Windows the behaviour of the mobo lights changed when it froze, maybe your windows installation media has a corrupt file
. I would redownload Windows 10 to rule that out before reinstalling Windows 10. Another option is to run a Live Ubuntu on a bootable USB stick to see if it crashes in ubuntu [ubuntu is a user friendly linux distro similar to Windows 10]. If you are not familiar with ubuntu it is very easy to run without actually installing it from a USB stick. Here is a step by step guide for creating a bootable ubuntu v20.04 [Focal Fossa] on a USB stick using a small program that runs from its exe file [no installation required] called UNetbootin.
