Just tried to launch doom multiplayer and my computer shut off. Now it won't urn back on at all. Don't know what to do :(
I guess you could say your computer is.... doomed
Unplug power supply and pull the ram out. If the computer beeps back at you after you plug it in and turn it on the board is fine. If you get NO response then either the board is fried or the power supply and or surge protector is bad possibly. Plug tower directly into the wall to verify.
Do this and ignore everyone else trying to be cucks and edgelords by telling you the wrong thing.
graphics cards are usually rated up to like 160-190 celsius and there's no way you're hitting that point unless you're overclocking and something goes horribly wrong with your bios and the graphics cards firmware or something.
First, you need to clean your computer. Since I'm not in troll mode, I'm not going to recommend scrubbing with soap and water.
Instead, unplug your graphics card and see if it starts. If it does, either your graphics card is dead, or your power supply is dead/dying.
In Doom Multiplayer, the more players there are, the more amps are drawn. It is possible that your PSU (power source unit) is not rated for that many players.
But before that, check to make sure that the outlet is still getting power. Check the outlet by plugging in something you know works, like a lamp.
It's on now after I fixed the ram thing... was just too lazy to fix it when I got the pc initially. Not sure why that would crash it now I've been using this pc for a year now no issues.
To be sure it's getting enough amps lick the 3.3V plug going into your graphics card too. Get it real nice and slobbery. It'll just give a slight tingle, no big deal, that's how you know it's working.

sure anon, whatever you say
Graphics cards are supposed to be pretty damn tough. They have double the thermal rating of any other part in your computer at a minimum pretty much.
I remember people freaking out about the r9 290 series cards and how much heat they put out, but in testing those things were hitting over 200 celsius without any traces of damage.
Pretty sure they just epoxy the shit out of their circuit boards and that prevents any oxidation due to thermal stress and basically seals everything together.
A steam invite would of been nice, but alright.
