Question CPU fan error on Ryzen 5 3600

My computer has been rebooting randomly in the middle of playing games. When it reboots it says "CPU fan error". I read that this means the CPU is overheating, however this does not make sense as I am using a Ryzen 5 3600 which has a low TDP, with the stock wraith cooler. I also tried reapplying the thermal paste carefully to no avail.

CPU has stock wraith cooler, using B450 Tomahawk max, 5700xt, EVGA 650 GA.

Thank you for your time
