So I’ve had my FTW3 ultra for around a month and haven't changed drivers in a few weeks, I haven’t had any significant crashing/stability issues until today when my Z73 AIO which displays my CPU and GPU temps suddenly showed my gpu at 0 degrees, followed by a black screen and the fans ramping up to 100%. The power LEDS do not light up red (I have a 1000 watt EVGA PSU...) the computer posts fine and I can get to my windows desktop for a few seconds before the problem recurs... I’m very disheartened and don’t know if this is a hardware or software issue, looking for suggestions...
 
UPDATE - Card seems to be working again, seems like a software issue...
UPDATE 2 - Not stable still continuing to crash as described before... I was overly optimistic. Is this a lemon or is the software causing problems? Does anyone know?

    I had this issue with my gigabyte 3090 card. Since 3 weeks, randomly while playing games the screens go black and gpu fans go to 100%. Power button reset fix it and it posts fine. I turned in my gpu today for RMA.

    I'd be interested to hear how your replacement card fares in comparison.

    My 3090 did this shortly before something on it blew out. Would recommend RMA.

    The sad/funny part is this is already a replacement card. My first gigabyte 3090 died 1 month after i received it... 
     
    Edit: The first GPU died in a different way, without showing these issues. It just randomly crashed during a game session and PC ouldnt boot with it installed.

    That’s what happens with poor yields at the fab and not enough stress testing.
