Hello

I have a problem with my mining rig.

What happened:
I was changing thermal pads on a different card, I plugged everything back in place, powered on my rig. Suddenly GPU listed as GPU#3 (EVGA 3080) doesn't want to mine properly having only around 22MH/s. I did not do anything with this card.

What I tried doing:
  1. I changed the position of the card on my rig to check where lies the problem. And it seems to be GPU's fault as it does not matter where I plug it in.
  2. Updated drivers and miner.
  3. Checked OC settings, tried no OC, nothing changes the problem - the card "doesn't want to" use the settings from MSI Afterburner. It seems like it does not want to draw more power than around 135W.
My questions:
  1. What could have happened?
  2. How do I fix this? ;)
