No logs => it did not happen!

Yes, but maybe tell him what logs to look at.

Enzo, has this machine had any operating system on it before Stretch? With no problems?

How often does it freeze? Every hour? Every couple of days? Do you hear anything prior to the freeze, like the fans kicking into high gear?

Which window manager / desktop environment? Can you switch to a different DE for a couple of days and get different results?

I'm not sure which logs to look into, but my starting place would be /var/log.
