I was playing a game earlier with a PS4 controller plugged in by USB, when the controller stopped working. It reconnected after a few seconds, then I got notices popping up on the screen for my 3 external USB hard drives with the "select to choose what happens with removal devices" message. I looked down and noticed that the lighting on all of my fans had dimmed. I quit the game, put the computer to sleep, and then booted back up.

Everything came back up and has been fine since. It seems kind of like my USB devices all lost power briefly, but not sure what happened with the ARGB. It was just kind of weird and I'm not sure where to start looking to see if something is actually wrong.

Any thoughts on if I should be watching for a bigger issue here? System is about 2 months old:

Ryzen 7 3700x
Asus TUF GAMING B550-PLUS ATX
Deepcool CASTLE 240EX
G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200
Inland Professional 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME SSD
XFX Radeon RX 570 4 GB RS XXX
Phanteks Eclipse P400A Digital
Super Flower Leadex III Gold 750 W 80+ Gold

I went into Device manager and unchecked "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" on all of the USB controllers. I'll see if that had anything to do with it.
