Question Monitors cycling on and off after watching VLC

Hello, I have a brand new computer, specs as follows:

i9-10900k
Z490-E Strix
3070
970 EVO 500GB
750W Corsair PSU
Dual Monitors: 144HZ 1440P LG, 4K Dell



I'm having a strange issue, and has happened multiple times. I was watching a movie on VLC and a twitch stream at the same time (on separate monitors), and everything was working perfectly. Then, after about 30 minutes of watching, the computer freezes for about 3 seconds and then my second monitor turns black and my primary monitor keeps turning on and off (On for 6 seconds, off for 2, repeat). I think its happening to the second monitor as well, but it just posts black. I have updated BIOS, Graphics Driver to no avail. This is so strange so I have no idea what this could possibly be. This only seems to happen when I'm watching VLC and something else at the same time. I can play games just fine at max settings and the computer has no problems. Any help would be appreciated.
