So My computer is randomly restarting instantly. Meaning when in in the middle of gaming or somthing, all screens go black and it restarts.

U downloaded speed fan and nothing seems to overheat. Sometimes it restarts when im doing nothing.

sometimes the GPu says an arrowsign ^ with 49 C next to it:

Your video cards are OVERHEATING or at least running above what the program has set as a safe hi-limit.

The indication is that the cards are out of range for their thermal profiles and the program is warning you of the hi temps.

However what in the heck is on temp #3 at 128C? that's 264.3 degrees farenheit...???? Thats way beyond ANYTHING you could have in your computer and it NOT burst into flames!!

Maybe a sensor on the board is wonky, or you are actually having these thermal events?

If those are actual temperatures...you have something not working right and/or if it's the program it would be inducing thermal protection at the incorrect temps.

I would maybe performan a complete uninstall of the program and reboot...then reinstall the program and see if the temps are reading the same...if the cards are running too hot....which 58C isn't anywhere near too hot...the program is warning that the temps at 57c or 58c are dangerous which isn't true...but that 128C reading IS SMOKING HOT...IF TRUE. anything that hot would immediately shut down the entire computer as that's hot enough to fry an egg on...if nothing in your system is actually that hot...the program isn't getting a good reading from the thermal sensors on your motherboard or it's screwing the readings and outputting wrong data...but if the thermal protection is enabled in the program...your issue would be the program performing erratically.

Can't say this enough...NOTHING in the pc should read 128C Nothing!!! So track what temp #3 is assigned to monitor and check that piece of hardware first!

Those temps for the gpu's isn't all that hot and well within the thermal profile of those cards.
