I've been running my Ryzen / RTX build for a while now and it's been awesome. However, last night I got some weird behaviour that I want to try to understand.
Basically, while working in Windows (nothing intensive, just browsing), the screen suddenly went black and the GPU fan came on full blast. I wasn't able to turn the machine off using the front case panel and had to physically switch it off at the power supply. The machine came back up and everything now seems normal.
I wasn't running any intensive CPU or GPU applications, and I remember looking at Zotac Firestorm and seeing the GPU temp idling around 30 degrees centigrade just before the issue occurred.
Any idea what would cause this behaviour? My initial thought is GPU temp and that this felt like some sort of overheat scenario where the machine did what it could to protect the GPU. The GPU is idling at 30 and the CPU idling at 36.
Thanks for any thoughts!
