My MacBook Pro 2017 under heavy loads (gaming, rendering videos in Camtasia, recording screen casts with OBS, etc.).
It keeps crashing and it gives me what I call the screen of black death from Apple:
Or my games will simply shut down when playing in Windows 10
I notice when it crashes when I run OBS, the cores and other areas don't seem to be overheated the instant it crashes.
When I bought this PC I was able to render video and play games with no problem, even at the same time...but after about 4 months it's now crashing whenever you put any intensive load on it period.
I've also heard a weird buzzing noise as if a robot were to die when it crashes sometimes. That noise doesn't happen often but has when it crashes in Windows.
It's crashing in both windows 10 and OS X High Sierra, doesn't matter. I've dual booted it with bootcamp.
Already ran a diagnostic (where you reboot, press D and whatever) and also they ran a light diagnostics test in the Apple store. They said next step is for me to have to bring it in for a few days, where they run a heavy diagnostics on it for 5 hours.
Also opened the bottom and took a can duster and cleaned out the fans and vents.
This sucks cause I'm a programmer and it sucks because I just paid 4k for this fing laptop. My Macbook 20-15 started to do this last year in fact! And that's why I bought this one! It's weird, my macbook 2015 isn't crashing anymore after turning it on after about a year, my kids are playing minecraft on it just fine but about 6 months ago that PC was crashing all the time even after I had reinstalled OS X. I don't know, I give up.
So is this normal? I've seen it spike even over 200 degrees on the cores and I'm not even doing any rendering or gaming right now in OS X. I'm just doing Chrome granted I have a lot of tabs open but no hard core streaming, rendering, or playing games.
Here's what that looks like:
