Screen will suddenly go blank, fans will spin to 100%, all disk activity stops, any USB peripherals with lights look like they're no longer receiving power and the system sits like a vegetable with the only course of action being a power cycle. On boot, Windows has absolutely no recollection of an incident ever happening in the event viewer.
This happens almost exclusively when Rendering Video. Gaming is fine (although I have had some sudden split-second pauses even in games as old as Portal 2).
At first I thought it was the PSU, but the 3.3, 5 and 12 all look within tolerance according to the UEFI. However it IS only a Bronze and three years old at the point (if not older, I forget if it used to be in an older system). Though I'm also suspecting it might be the Motherboard giving up. VRM issue, maybe? I can render a video and it'll work without question. Last night I had a project quit three hours into the render, but I've also had an instance where it quit 10 minutes into a render. Using Shutter Encoder to convert any clip to Apple ProRes is the only time I've been able to reliably make the system halt, but the crash is so sudden I can't take a reading from something like HW Monitor.
Motherboard firmware is on it's latest revision. I've ran disk check on all three of my SSDs and they've come out clean. Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool also found nothing wrong.
Any ideas? I'm only a hobbyist when it comes to videography; my actual job is as a software engineer and I really can't be having system issues at this point in time, what with the whole working from home thing.
