    hi everyone,

    I have recently purchased a Evga 3090 FTW ultra video card and after using the EVGA Precision X1 tool to push the power target to 107%, I notice that in games after a period of time the computer will just restart with no warning. Running 100% power target I dont see any issues (yet...)

    I have done some reading and people say it could be an issue with my power supply, however this has only started with the 3090, my 2080TI previously with an OC power target ran fine.

    I am using a Seasonic Titanium 1000W power supply.

    Any recommendations or help would be appreciated - I have tried moving the cables on the PSU side and have also unplugged and replugged the cables into the GPU.

    Cheers,

    Something simple that I see a lot and causes this type of issue is using both plugs on the single PCIe power cable, given this has three 8 pins are you using 2 on one cable and one on the other? Those cables are only good for 150w each so using both connectors on something like a 3090 may be trying to pull to much current through them when it peaks.

    Is there another power supply you can try? Even if it's lesser power.

    Thanks mate, great call I will check that tomorrow. One thing I have done in the interim is stop using Nvidia Geforce Experience and so far also no issues...

    While gaming have a program like HWMonitor or HWINFO open to regularly check temperatures of all components. The 3000 series creates a crap load of heat which can create instability in other components.

    As already mentioned check that you have individual PCIE cables for each power connector on the GPU, especially if you are raising the power curve over 100%
