certainly not normal, the only circumstances where that should happen are a direct shock to a running hard drive. Assuming you didn't drop your phone directly onto an HDD running your OS, something funky happened. Is it possible to recreate this?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

How hard is this phone falling on your computer? Could you take a video of the drop and what happens to the PC?

Without actually looking inside the pc, it would be difficult to pinpoint the cause. Likely looking at some loose connections somewhere though.
