RTX 2080 keeps causing a monitor to loose signal and freeze up my pc periodically


#1

So I recently upgraded from a GTX 1070 to a RTX 2080.
Ever since swapping my cards, my computer would briefly freeze up and become unresponsive for a short while.

I tried reseating the card, double checking the power to the card and even uninstalling and then reinstalling the drivers twice! Nothing worked, so I RMAed the card with newegg assuming its something with the card.

Finally got a replacement card, plugged it in and it ran fine for few hours. Then all of a sudden 1 of my monitors would loose signal for about 10 seconds and my whole pc would freeze up for about 30 seconds and it would do it periodically.

Again Ive reseated the card, double checked the power connectors and even uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers. I even tried a few older drivers with no luck. I should also mention I have not overclocked the card at all.

I have been monitoring the card while using my pc and the only thing I see the monitor show is power limit was briefly hit right after it freezes but the power limit doesnt spike every time it freezes

Before I last resort RMA the card AGAIN, would anyone happen to have any solutions or ideas as to why it keeps periodically freezing up?

My system is as follows:
3x 1440p 144Hz Acer monitors
1x Samsung 4k Tv
i7 6700k
16GB Gskil ram @2666mhz
Zotac Gaming Amp RTX 2080
850W EVGA 80+ Bronze PSU
