I just installed a Hybrid CPU Cooler for my Asus GTX-1080 Ti FE. Card worked perfectly fine before installation of Hybrid Cooler. After install, I downloaded Precision for monitoring purposes. No adjustments made.
I noticed immediately that idle temp is 56c + with fluctuations to 65c. ( I then verified temps using three different software monitors. )
Within seconds of launching any benchmark or game, the shroud fan kicks up to max and promptly freezes my computer. Only a hard reset willwork. Nothing functions.
I reset bios on motherboard to factory settings. No change. ( Black screen, hard freeze )
I uninstalled all GPU drivers and reinstalled. No change. ( Black screen, hard freeze )
I then removed the shroud and double checked connections, reinstalled paste, checked all included thermal pads for proper placement. No change. ( Black screen, hard freeze )
I then ran a second PSU to just the GPU to eliminate the PSU. No change. ( Black screen, hard freeze )
Symptoms: Shroud fan shoots up to max and within seconds, hard freeze, as soon as any benchmark or game is started. 
 
Any suggestions or something I may have missed?
