New Build goes black screen with GPU fan at 100% during idle, no problems under load

Hello all, https://pcpartpicker.com/b/wpQZxr

I have a recently built Threadripper/Vega64 build and the PC will randomly go black screen with the GPU fan to 100% when it is at idle. this does not happen during gaming or heavy use times but happens seemingly for no reason, or sometimes will happen when I plug in my headphones to charge (Astro A50's).

The headphones have not been an issue for a few weeks but I still have random black screen problems. I've completely reinstalled windows and deleted/reinstalled video drivers, which have not seemed to work. My pc Usually runs 3 screens, which wasn't a problem for my old rig (6 years old now.)

anyone have an idea of what my next step in troubleshooting should be?

Well make sure everything is getting power, make sure both 8pin EPS power connectées for the cpu are connected not just one, make sure all ram and video card is seated properly in the slots. Also go check the event viewer and see what that says.

What should I be looking in event viewer? When I have a problem and check event viewer it mainly shows kernal power errors

That means that the pc is restarting or losing power unexpectedly and not shutting down cleanly, again make sure everything is plugged in all the way. Also if you have an over clock on anything, take it back to stock speeds and see if that helps at all, sorry the response took so long.
