Unusual Behavior from GPU


Hi all,

I recently reinstalled my 3060 GPU, RAM, and M.2 while switching out my SSD (it was difficult to install without moving things around) and made sure to ground my PC while doing so

However, before reinstalling these parts my pc at idle with only chrome and wallpaper engine ran at an expected <10% load, but after reinstalling a few parts, my GPU's load at idle is either at 35%-45% and clock speeds are rapidly oscillating between 250 MHz and 1800 MHz

This is my first build and I am unsure if I made a mistake or if this is something I can ignore..
