Hello everyone,

I have a 2080ti Black edition Gaming that has since I got it from RMA has not functioned properly.

EVGA states they have had zero issues with my original card and are unsure the GPU is the culprit.

I have a Corsair 650M PSU
Ryzen 9 3900x
Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GBs of Memory (4x8 @ 3600)
A brand new MSI MPG B550 Gaming Plus motherboard

My PC boots up with 0 issues but anytime I try and play any games the whole thing bugs out. Sometimes I see artifacting and sometimes I don’t before my screens go black and then sometimes the whole PC crashes.

Event viewer notes something with Power-Kernel Event 41, system stopped responding or lost power unexpectedly. It also notes issues with the nvvdlkm process.

I tried reverting to an older game ready driver with 0 success. Last night I did a complete wipe of my entire system and a clean install of windows 10 thinking windows 11 might have been causing the issue.

I then ran Windows Memory Diagnostic to see if RAM was the issue and that found 0 issues.

I have a GOXLR Mini and StreamDeck MK. 2 and other than that I have just a webcam, mouse and keyboard.

Again, the PC will run fine as long as I do not try and play any games. Browsing the internet, transferring files, anything of the sort. Boot up a game, it crashes or the whole PC does.

I am so frustrated and have no clue what to do at this point as there is no evident culprit.

Please help.

    Have you tried another GPU in your rig or tried the GPU you have in another PC?

    AMD Ryzen 9 7950X,  Corsair Mp700 Pro M.2, 64GB Corsair Dominator Titanium DDR5  X670E Steel Legend, MSI RTX 4090 Associate Code: H5U80QBH6BH0AXF. I am NOT an employee of EVGA

    Welcome to the EVGA Forums
    Lets see if the community can help you.
    Seems like it could be a PSU issue to me, based on what your describing.  The gaming load is tripping the PSU - it is either failing to provide enough stable power - OR - one of the PSU's safety features is being tripped
    --> Power-Kernel Event 41 - that is an unexpected shutdown - not the cause, just the result
    Look at the PSU Voltage with software & look at Sensor tab with GPU-Z
    What type of connection to the monitor?
