Question Does anyone know what might be wrong here? GPU Crashing?

May 26, 2019
My GPU INNO3D GeForce RTX 2070 iCHILL X3 JEKYLL started crashing lastnight. With any game the PC would freeze and dozens of X O characters appear over both screens before my whole system would crash. I have 2 screens connected and these figures would appear over both. It seemed to happen sooner when playing a game but eventually it was happening on system start and then the screens would turn off AFTER system information on reboot.

Everything that can be up to date is up to date including drivers and OS and BIOS and I did a clean install of Nvidia drivers etc lastnight.

Some research I did suggest corrupt memory but I wont pretend to know what I am talking about.

Here is what I am running:

MB: Gigabyte B150M-DS3H / Bios: F21
RAM: 16384MB
CPU: I5-6600k @ 3.5
Win 10 Pro 64
PW: Coolermaster rs-700-acab-b1 700W

The GPU is about 2 months old.
Right now I have my old AMD RX480 in there and its working

Here are some quick pics i took of what happens on screen:

I hope I provided enough information but if you need anything more please say.

UPDATED: added power supply

So "RMA the card" this means return it right?
Yes, assuming the card is indeed faulty, which seems to be the case, IMO. That 700B Model from cooler master isn't the very best of power suppies. Very poor/inferior quality, and it falls under the low-end TIER in the PSU hierarchy list. Do NOT use this model to power up the RTX 2070. Not recommended at least for high-end GPUs.

Grab yourself some other HIGH quality PSU.
