Is my gpu or motherboard broken?????? My 2 displays RANDOMLY turned black -> no signal and won't turn on anymore.
The fans have started running louder, after opening my PC case it turned out to be the fans of my GPU // 780 TI msi edition.

This all happened while my friend was making some earrape "COMEDY SHORTS GAMER" sounds with a macro on discord....

i'm not sure. It's an asus motherboard Z87-K, but whenever i tried plugging in my hdmi cable into the motherboard it just wouldn't work. like those connectors just don't work.

I've tried just connecting the computer with one monitor and have both be powered ( literally only hdmi cable and powercable) but this wouldn't turn on. "no signal".

i think i need to replace thermal paste -> card mightve been overheating.
After 4 hours of doing nothing to it it started working again.
( Before that i only unplugged the CPU cooler & took it out together with ram -> afterwords putting it back in)

ehh hopefully i'll do this right
