I will try to replicate the issue while playing other games.
I recently did a fresh install of the OS on the SSD mentioned above. My old SSD finally gave out after about 6+ years. While playing Diablo III my GPU will randomly shut off the audio/video (HDMI) feed. The only way I can get the audio/video back is to do a hard shutdown and reboot. Unfortunately, I don't know how to activate the HDMI port from the motherboard which could use the CPU's power. That would allow me to investigate what's going on with the computer instead of rebooting. Therefore, the computer itself is obviously still running when the GPU shuts off. Could possibly be the result of overheating. It is fan cooled, not liquid. I think that's all the important details I can think of. Again, thanks for your interest in my problem. If you can think of more pertinent information for me to provide please drop a comment.
