Question Asus Strix GTX 970 losing signal

Hello everyone

I have the above GPU and during normal browsing everything work as intended. When putting load on the GPU however, my screen goes black and starts searching for display. It goes round and round from HDMI to DVI to DVI-D and so on. Need to mention that PC has a fresh formated hard drive with clean windows10 and all drivers are up to date. Does anyone have any suggestions before i swap my EVGA GS 650 PSU to my backup Corsair 750M ?
In most of such this a regular thing haha? I went for EVGA for PSU after being put off using my old Corsair 750M when i built my PC 3-4 years ago.
It's a good PSU, trust me, but that doesn't mean it's completely invulnerable to failing. And yes, it's common that people lose display signal when doing something taxing on the GPU, if one or more parts are defective - usually the PSU, sometimes the GPU. Very rarely something else.
