hi smart people from the forums! my rtx 2080super DOES NOT like oc software... doesnt matter if its px or after burner, i cant even adjust voltage headroom without my pc locking up and having to hard reset.... what i mean by that, if i touch ANYTHING even setting memory to 1mhz my card takes a dump on itself.. its super annoying, i dont get this issue when normally using the card... i can launch the software etc, but the moment i try to apply anything even underclocking, BOOM pc locks. i have a 700w psu, 3700x, 3200mhz hyperx ram, msi carbon x570 board, both cpu and gpu are watercooled, gpu runs 69c to 65c in games. and then defiles itself if i even add 1mhz to the core clock. mouse becomes unresponsive, and the image on my screen updates like every 5 seconds, like getting 1 frame per 5 seconds haha. after hard reset, its back to normal. Ive reinstalled windows twice, same issue. LOL WHAT IS GOING ON, WHO HAS HAD THIS ISSUE
