I recently bought a used Gtx 1080 however when under load during games and benchmarking it will freeze then close the application, sometimes it will show artifacts for a split second before freezing. The pc will still remain on every time. I have tried this on 2 different systems with same result. Any ideas what could be the problem?

Clean install of gpu drivers was done using Display Driver Uninstaller?

Source of this 2nd hand gpu?
I only just did a fresh install of windows then downloaded the drivers from Nvidia

It was purchased off eBay however the seller is ignoring my messages and eBay themselves are being unhelpful.

Was the previous gpu in use AMD or an older Nvidia card? Then run DDU.

Lovely... already not looking good... Be prepared to hail eBay, who should be taking your side, for a return of your cash - that ought to get that seller's attention.
This looks like one of those cases of a miner trying to cut their losses from having jumped on the mining train too late.

I’ll run DDU and give an update

And yeah in completely gutted that I wasted my money on this when I could have purchased a new rtx 2060 super for $100 more
