Hello all.

I have switched from 980Ti to RTX 4090 few days ago, but my PC is keeping BSOD in random moment (sometimes 30 mins and BSOD, while sometime 4hours without issue) while I'm play games.
It will Freeze the screen (while the sounds/musics will go on, but I can't do anything), and after a minute? it will shows the BSOD and say DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION
I tried to read the dump, it seems that something related to nvlddmkm.
I have tried to update the BIOS of the motherboard, reinstall the driver, use DDU to clean up and reinstall, using driver v522.25 instead of v526.47, but it still happen.

My Spec:
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
XPG GAMMIX D10 DDR4-3200MHz 16GBx2
Asuz TUF Gaming X570-Plus
Zotac Gaming Amp Extreme AIRO GeForce RTX4090 24G OC
Asus ROG THOR 1000P2 gaming PSU
Windows 10 Pro 22H2

minidump:

The ROG PSU is a new one that installed with RTX4090 (Before I'm using a Corsair CX750M that cannot powerup the 4090 so I switched together)
The GPU before is Gigabyte G1 Gaming WF3 6G, which never have the same issue.

Do anyone know how to fix it? or is that my RTX 4090 has something wrong with it?
Thanks in advance.

I've checked the cable and it is not burning or melting. (I'm not using the adapter provided with the 4090)

Can you see if you can source a slightly higher PSU for your build? Source, as in, borrow, not buy.

(I'm not using the adapter provided with the 4090)
Then how are you powering the RTX4090? The 12pin connector cable that comes with the PSU doesn't have the sense wires. That is your likely culprit, using the wrong cable for the right GPU.

I have tried to update the BIOS of the motherboard
BIOS version for your motherboard at this moment of time?

Thanks for the reply.

Sorry, I don't think I can borrow a higher PSU that can support the 12pin at this moment :unsure:

I'm using the one come separately with the PSU that ASUS newly provide with new purchased PSU for 4090, which have the S1~S4. I don't think it is wrong cable...?

For reference:

BTW it is a 2 8pins to 12pin cable.

I don't know if it will help, I have monitor the GPU after I install 4090 almost for the whole time while I'm playing games, the GPU voltage is usually showing 870-875mV in Zotac Firestorm, jump to 970mV for 1 or 2 sec if my game or browser sth need to work with it, and than drop back to 870-875mV

The newest one released from Asus in 2022/05/31 version4403.

Hmmm, perhaps Asus changed the cables bundled with the unit.

Regardless, this should help you understand why I pointed my finger towards the PSU;

They didn't change instead give me one more 2x8pin to 12pin. One in the box is more "cheap" in look and without s1~s4, while they provided another one outside the box (at the cashier).

Thanks for the video, I have view it and check some more related article, but it seems that the cable I'm using can provide 600W which Zotac is saying for 450W requirement.

So if it is the PSU or cable issue(although I don't think so?), if I go to limit the power gives to 4090 will it solve this?
or just simply driver problems...? (But I've tried to search for information with nvlddmkm.sys and RTX 4090, I can't find other things right at this moment.)
or just... my 4090 is a fault card that need to return?
