Did you try a different PSU? Try without those extensions, they may be causing voltage drop, or have poor connections in general.

It's also true connection quality or resistance can change over time. I was running Furmark experimenting with different case and GPU fan profiles and noticed one of the PCIe inputs was dropping to 11.7v under load. Reseated the cables and all three inputs are back to a worst case 11.9v ~450 watts.

UPDATE: My old PC is now encountering the same issue as my new PC now ( Black Screen + 100% Fan Speed ), so that pretty much confirmed that my EVGA RTX 3090 FTW3 ULTRA is defective, same symptoms still appear after troubleshooting with different PSU changed to a 1000W PSU, swapped with another PC, as well as changed the power outlet.
 
I did not want to believe that EVGA manufactures inferior and poorly made GPUs, but with the RMA I gone through and now a 2nd defective gpu replacement from EVGA + all the troubleshooting and results/data pointing back to EVGA, I have no choice but to believe that its all true.
 
I probably wont be wasting my time and money on another RMA at this point, even their REV 1.0 GPUs are proven to be poorly made and flawed, I have 0% confidence in any of their services and products, 2x defective GPU speaks for itself, worst brand ever
 
I will probably just try to get a RTX4090 from Nvidia, shame on you EVGA

Just out of curiosity, what model is the 1000 watt PSU?

Believe he used a 1000w psu manufactured on or before 2019. When they asked me if they can use that older psu I said sure you can use it to test it but do not use it for long. Saw a many a people online burn up many an old manufactured 1000w's on their 3080's and 3090's. Also warned them when they built the system do not use an 850w psu, they are on a 4k display pushing the eye candy so it was only a matter of time with the gpu working that hard.

Well, this is what happens when PSU manufacturers cheap out on the design and find loopholes on the spec to sell us lemons.

Most PSUs "out there" do not really meet the ATX recommendations. They just wanted to make sure we know that their PSUs have "single powerful rail" and are "80 plus unobtainium" or something.
It is a matter of time before most modern PSUs wear out their output capacitors (cause they were not really designed for such harsh treatment) and fry your load.

The fact that the GPU turns off is a blessing in disguise, it is either that or the PSU fries it.

Got any backup for that claim? Pretty much every PSU out there worth buying exceeds the specs. There are literally dozens of sites out there that do reviews on them.
My AX1200 is a stable as the day I bought it and handles my 3080 Ti like it wasn't even there. Then again, it held up just fine running 3-way SLI too.

Yes I have. Ask Corsair for the transient response specifications of that AX1200 you have.
Specifically ask for the step size, current slew rate and capacitive load characteristics.

When you get the results... There is my backup. IF you get the results. That is a big IF, and they do not avoid giving you a direct answer.

My RMA worked for me... Have you checked if it's your system end issue?

Yup my EVGA Supernova p3 1200w was fine with my 3080 12gb for most of this year, I put in my 3090 TI FTW3 Ultra Gaming PSU died just over a month later.
