I’m not the most tech savvy person but I know to keep my computer clean, stay off sketchy sites and don’t download anything without properly researching it. That being said, my cpu is an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12 core and I have water cooling with 4 big fans. My computer ran just fine until this morning and the thing kept shutting down for no reason, not good. So I check my temps and it seems that my cpu is running fine when I’m not doing anything (sitting at around 60c), but the moment I do something even as small as open my settings or my files, it jumps to 80 or 90. And when I try to open anything more than those things, it overheats and shuts down. So I keep it off, air dust it, check connections and start her up again. Same issue. The real problem is that I can’t even do a full file scan with windows defender because it gets too hot and shuts down. The quick scan says nothing is wrong though. Any suggestions?
