Hello,

I just bought a new 3080 (https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N3080AORUSX-WB-10GD-rev-20#kf) to replace my 2070. Upon installation I also did a clean wipe of all drives and a fresh install of windows (now windows 11 not by choice). After updating all the drivers to the newest possible, I downloaded a couple games to play with friends first of which was CSGO. I couldn't get more than 60 fps on a 720p resolution. I have already uninstalled the drivers using DDU in safe mode and installing the newest drivers again. I downloaded and ran MSI Afterburner and it says that the GPU is currently running a core clock speed of 480mhz and a temperature of 28 Celsius which never change no matter what happens . Just to try and see if it would fix it, I upped the core clock with +300 and tried running the FurMark benchmark to see if it would improve. I got a solid score of max 8 fps.

After this and plenty of googling, I couldn't find anyone with a similar issue. I then proceeded to download GPU-Z and check what that has to say. It displays the correct GPU Clock on the main screen of 1440mhz but if I click on the sensors tab, everything is blank.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
 
The riser cable is connected to slot 1.

I updated the gpu drivers to 512.95 after that test to the most recent according to the NVIDIA Driver website. Here is the result of that test: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/53042977

The GPU doesnt even show up.

Here is the GPU-Z output: View: https://imgur.com/a/nNnKy4l
It shows it operating at 1.1. Also, all the missing information is of concern.

You need to try with the card connected directly to motherboard without riser cable.

With it being a full loop water cooling it'll be a PITA to eliminate the riser cable for testing.

Before attempting that let's take a look at the whole system. Go to userbenchmark.com and run the test. Link your results here.
Sorry about that wait, had to run to the police station because someone hit my car yesterday. Here is the results of the test: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/53042791

Definitely something wrong with the GPU. What slot do you have the riser cable connected to?

Show me what the first tab in GPU-z looks like.

This could take a bit, would need to drain + bend new tubing to have it directly in the mobo. Do you think it would be worth just trying a 4.0 riser cable if I can get one of amazon or something?

UBM didn't finish - the gpu crashed during it's portion, that's why it didn't appear.

Memory size, bus width, and bandwidth are missing.
Got any ideas? I'm about to try the supported driver directly from the GPU website and I will run the test again.

The cheaper more time consuming thing then is to plumb the loop for use without riser cable.
I'll probably end up going this route. Wont happen today as I've got plans. But I'll get it done in a day or so. I will reply here when I have the results.

Thanks for taking the time to brainstorm issues.

Says its currently running @ x8 1.1
That's Gen 4 x8, which is equal to Gen 3 x16 in bandwidth. Gen 3 x16 doesn't hamper any gpu currently available.

Plugging the card directly into the motherboard would be the cheapest thing to do, assuming this isn't a hard tube loop..?

I'm wondering why it doesn't even show properly using GPU-z.
The OP's first screenshot has a bunch of missing readings. The gpu is a preassembled waterblocked model, not one they DIY'ed, which some users screw up when assembling.
My suspicion was the riser card/cable from the beginning, with how finicky they've been.

Next plan is then eliminating the riser cable as an issue and directly plugging the gpu into the mobo.
