I am getting random BSODs only when playing games. I'm not yet convinced it is the video card because the error codes are not cosistent. When looking in Windows reliability monitor, I am showing hardware error codes 193, 117, 144, and 141. At first I thought it was iCue 5 because there was always several entries of Corsair iCue Components crashing along side the hardware errors. However, the last crash occurred without any entry related to iCue. 
 
I will be playing a game and all of the sudden the screen goes black. My Corsair keyboard did also drop (lights went off and was not responsive) the last time I got the BSOD, but nothing else did. I never let it go far enough to actually BSOD during the previous crashes. Instead, I force restarted my computer. I let the BSOD happen the last time and got a DPC_Watchdog_Violation 133. When analyzing the dmp file, it pointed to the Nvidia drivers. 
 
I previously DDU the Nvidia drivers and went back to a version that worked prior to when this issue started. I got the BSOD after this. I ran OCCT on vram and the gpu for 30 minutes each without error. I also ran Windows Memory Diagnostic without error. 
 
Motherboard issue?

    Try with xmp disabled.
    Tried that initially. I have been having some very strange Windows startup behavior (black screen for about 30 seconds with a cursor before Windows login screen) that persisted through my last DDU and reinstall of Nvidia drivers. I had an older version of DDU that I was using. I downloaded the new version and went through the process again and now the login issue is fixed. I’m hoping it also resolves the BSOD, but it will take some time to see a difference.

    I now got a black screen with GPU fans at 100%. Beginning to lean more towards it being a bad GPU. I updated my motherboard BIOS and set EXPO to 1 instead of 2. I’m also going to reseat the card and reconnect the power cable. I might even try replacing the power cable. If none of this works, I’ll put my old 3090ti back in. If that works then it is definitely a bad 4090.

    sounds like RMA time if the 3090ti works

    It wouldn't hurt to try a different DP or HDMI cable.

    I updated my motherboard BIOS to the latest version and set EXPO back to 1 instead of 2. On a previous BIOS version only 2 would work without issue. I'm thinking that EXPO 2 was no longer stable on newer BIOS versions for me, as so far I have not had any issues. However, at one point I remember turning EXPO off completely and still having issues. It could have just been the BIOS update that made things more stable. Only time will tell though, as the crashes did not happen consistently. I could go for a week without a crash and then randomly get one after starting a game. I also pulled the power cable going to the graphics card and reinserted it to make sure that the connection was good. The last crash that I had was on 2/26, almost a week ago, so I am growing more confident that the issue was fixed. I'll update this post if I get another crash.

    Pretty sure it was the RAM setting. After I updated the motherboard bios and set EXPO to 1 instead of 2, I haven't had a single issue. My system has been very stable.
