I just finished my first pc build (so yes I don't have a lot of experience) and it is overheating like crazy.
Everything seems to work fine. I followed a instruction video on youtube. the pc starts up and everything is running. However the moment I start a game (Overwatch for example) the vans start going crazy and the videocard overheats untill the point the computer shuts itself down. This happens within 10 minutes. Once the screen goes black both the van of the cpu and the videocard are still going at their max. I checked AMD system monitor and the AMD Ryzen 5, the Radeon RX560 and the 8gb of RAM memory are doing fine while running the game.
The other parts of my pc are:
ASRock AB350M motherboard
ev3a 500W power suply
Both the motherboard and the videocard seem to become very hot very quick, although my suspision is that the videocard starts with overheating.
Like I said everything is working like a charm however when I start a game everyting is going to bleep. Although Hearhstone doesnt make it chrash I can still feel the core of the videocard getter really warm, and any other game i have seems to be enought to make it chrash. One would assume my pc would be able to play them just fine.
Anyone has any idea what could cause this? (other then that they sold me a defect videocard)
Thanks for taking the time to react!
