I have 1080ti and experienced random crashing even though the card never overheated. People suggested it was most likely a power supply issue but I stressed everything and never found out what was causing it. I was close to packing it up and sending the power supply off for replacement as it was under warranty, while unscrewing it I found that next to the mains plug was an 'eco' switch Id never noticed before....flicked it and never had a problem since, apparently its a known issue. Anyway...all I can say is....always consider the power supply.

i have a corsair rm850x (i think it's x) and googling doesn't suggest any eco switches ... but good to know.

They'll be meaning for you to flush out Windows caches etc as well just to be safe. Its surprising where Windows hides stuff....... ;)

CCleaner can flush out windows cache?

 

do i just run the whole thing or is there a special way to just clear cache?

 

i might read up a bit on that - the last i heard it had a virus or that it cleared "too much" stuff

Just want to chime in, you're getting bluescreens? I would think something else is the culprit. Usually when the GPU is faulty you'll start seeing artefacts (gpu memory) or the display driver will crash and recover (Black screen, maybe recovers to desktop).

 

 

I'd check your cpu/ram. Stock clocks? What voltage to frequency? Are you running XMP on the ram? If you are then I would revert to stock, maybe give it a 0.1v bump and give it a test.

 

 

I've never had good experiences with Hyper-V on desktop windows. It meddled with too many things and crashed quite often, especially if you tried to run any other virtualization software while it's background processes were still around.

 

 

Edit: also if you've had your 1080ti for a while and are using displayport with newer drivers, you might want to update the displayport firmware. https://www.nvidia.com/object/nv-uefi-update-x64.html

I had a my gaming PC crashing while ago, (in any app) I put up with for months, I thought it was my RAM as I had added more or the video card driver as it always had problems upgrading drivers,

 

 

 

I found this info on you tube->

Did what it said and read through the unreadable stuff and noticed the words ".EXE" in a word, googled it, it was my AV scanner, uninstalled it, never had a problem since.

Yes that's my plan if the cache clear doesn't fix it then Avast is next to go

thanks for all your help, turns out that "CPU Package" and "CPU IA" (on HWinfo) were overheating, I was only looking at CPU core temperatures. While they were all high, the CPU Package was higher. Sorry I don't know what it hit before the motherboard shut it down, but it would be in the 90-100 range. It was by chance that I left the rig going without resetting or restarting and the mobo told me upon auto reboot. Would not have found that out otherwise!
