Question Issues with graphic card turning off!

Hi all,

I am having some computer issues. I have noticed three issues that are all kind of related.
Sometimes when closing a game, or tabbing out of a game and leaving it in the background, causes my pc to stutter, and eventually completely either freeze (where the only thing I can do is press and hold the power button) or the GPU fan stops spinning and the monitor looses connection to the GPU (where the only thing I can do is tap the power button, not hold, to turn it off). This one usually occurs at some point after closing a game, anywhere from 5-3 hours after, seemingly randomly.
This second option, where the GPU stops spinning and the monitor looses connection also sometimes occurs when loading a tab on chrome or queuing a new video on YouTube to watch (an example is I clicked on the Crunchyroll tab, and this happened, another when I clicked on a YouTube video and it occurred as well)
I also had a blue screen occur (the kind where the blue cascades down the screen) when clicking on a chrome tab. It said DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL with nvlddmkm.sys being what failed. I checked all my drivers, and updated those that needed updating. My nvidia drivers were also up to date as was my version of Windows 10.

This is my setup :

CASE: CORSAIR ICUE 4000X RGB SERIES ATX Mid-Tower Gaming Chassis + AirGuide RGB fans
CPU: Intel® Core™ Processor i7-11700K 8/16 3.60GHz [Turbo 4.9GHz] 16MB Cache
HDD: 2TB Samsung 870 QVO-Series SATA-III 6 Gb/s SSD
MEMORY: 32GB (8GBx4) DDR4/3000MHz Dual Channel Memory (Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO)
MOTHERBOARD: ASUS ROG STRIX Z590-A GAMING WIFI ATX, ARGB, WiFi 6, 2.5GbE LAN, 3 PCIe x16, 1 PCIe x4, 6 SATA3, 3x M.2 SATA/PCIe
POWER SUPPLY: 1000 Watts - GIGABYTE GP-P1000GM 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active Power Supply
GPU: GeForce RTX™ 3080 Ti 12GB GDDR6X (Ampere) [VR Ready]

I got these straight from the invoice as this was built by cyberpowerpc. I believe the GPU is a Zotac, and the model is slightly better than the base 3080Ti but I don’t remember the exact name of it.
I’m guessing it has to do with my power supply or motherboard, but any help would be greatly appreciated!!
