After i installed my new Asus RTX 2080 yesterday my pc shuts down all the time, while playing games, i got more than enought cooling for my cpu, my card is at 50 ish, and ive tried cleaning my psu, ive tested everything i can test, my mobo is ASUS ROG STRIX Z390-F with i9 9900k. ive tried removing ram ive reinstalled, b4 the upgrade i had dual 970's so going down to only 1 card should draw more power, but i am starting to wonder if it must be the psu, if it aint the actual rtx 2080, any ideas?

i realise im spamming my own forum rn, but i just need to ask, u know those Plastic protection caps that is on the "sli" "ports" on the gpu, i just took it off, i know this might be an stupid question, but at this point i dont have any idea, can that be the issue, that the plastic was leading electricity to eathother or something? "feel free to make fun of my btw" xD
