    Game's and Windows stutters and stops giving out a display signal


    So recently I have been having some issues with my PC for the last month I've been getting notifications from NZXT CAM that my GPU frequently hit's temps of up to 81C when under 100% load e.g. when playing DiRT 4 so I just ignored it thinking it was fine but now I'm regretting that because whenever I am watching YouTube or Netflix all three monitors will go black and then I will get the "No Signal" pop-up on the monitors and then when it comes back I get like a glitch pattern kind of like the one you'll see when you overclock a GPU too much. So I've come to the conclusion that my GPU is dying and I should contact EVGA and open an RMA Request. However I just wanted to get a second opinion.

    Thanks in advance,


    Full Specs:
    Processor: i7-7700K 4.5GHz (Turbo)
    CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X62
    Motherboard: ASUS ROG Z270F
    Power Supply: Corsair CS750M
    Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 3200MHz (Red)
    SSD: HyperX Fury 240GB
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda 3TB
    Video Card: EVGA GTX1080 SC

    Yeah, it definitely sounds like you need to open an RMA with EVGA. In the future, I'd recommend using a program like MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision X to set a custom fan curve for your card. I have SLI 1080 Ti Founders Edition cards, and they generally don't get above 74c after a few hours of gaming because I have a custom curve set. An example of a custom curve is attached below.
