After a few minutes in a game it just crashes. I've tried my old MSI 1060 and I can game all day. Today I replaced PSU and all the cables but, with the 3080 still crashing after few minutes in game any game.
Any help or ideas would be much appreciated.

Sounds like its overheating. Check temps. HW Monitor, Windows task manager etc.

Question, did you plug two eight pins from one cable or two? RTX 3080 sucks power and PCI slot only supplies 75 watts, whilst the plugs supply the rest. Using two separate cables is recommended.

The max temperature it's got to is 41c. It came pre built with just the one cable but, 've done it with two separate 8pins cable.
