Was in a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 lobby, but only on a menu, nothing very intensive. I recently upgraded my PC's CPU and GPU. I'm a bit worried though, since after checking reliability history after the crash, it is labeled as "hardware error". It wasn't a traditional BSOD (where you get the bluescreen frowny face), but my monitor completely locked up, couldn't alt tab, ctrl+alt+delete, nothing. There wasn't really a crashing sound of audio on loop either. Just a still-screen which forced me to press the power button.

CPU-Z Validation Link to my specs: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X @ 4515.85 MHz - CPU-Z VALIDATOR (x86.fr)
PSU is an EVGA 600W 80 Gold Plus

Here is an image of the error from reliability history: View: https://imgur.com/KM0hDJN

Please let me know if I need to fetch any further information.
