Please help. I had Windows 10 Home (64 bit) installed on my PC. System would freeze at seemingly randomly points, I would need to force shut down and restart. I knew something was wrong but wasn't bad enough to need to fix it at the time. I decided now that I would do a full reset, and update the ASRock UEFI (BIOS). I did that, and then ran DBAN on the drive Windows was on. It froze again in the middle of that. I'm not sure what options I have left to make this PC function, any insight will be appreciated.

Are you getting bluescreens? Usually the bluescreens will have some sort of code to point you in the right direction.

No blue screens - it just freezes unresponsive with whatever is on the screen. I have to force shut down for it to work again.

Hmmmm...... that's a strange issue. I'd recommend running a Memtest to see if there's any issues with the memory and update all the drivers to the latest versions if you haven't already. Also, you may have some luck checking the event viewer. Sometimes a crash doesn't necessarily have a BSOD and it may be logged in the event viewer.
