  1. Curious, have you seen the vide in regards to static from JaysTwoCents? He keeps zapping his monitor with static which causes it to reset, almost as you are describing. Perhaps you have a static problem?
  2. I emailed the person, seems legit. They claim to be upgrading to a 3090 kingpin and have this at a fair price. https://boise.craigslist.org/sop/d/boise-used-3090-evga-ftw3-ultra/7248184840.html
  3. It could be, software could also be causing something like this also. Diags on the drive would be a good idea if the manufacture has them.
  4. You could post on the thread for the tier list, but ultimately, all manufactures have bad parts now and then. Still worth sharing though. That or even create a post on the power supply branch of the forum.
  5. hhhmmm, so looking at the graph below i notice that the GPU is encoding something at the time that you are experiencing these dips. I figured streaming, but i could see Shadow play causing this also. Turn it off for a time to see if the issue goes away. If so, we can analyze from there.
  6. That actually makes more sense from what i see. Next question, are you streaming, and do you delay your stream by 30-40 seconds?
  7. Open my computer, right click on the drive, not a folder in it, but the drive its self and choose properties. Click the security tab Click advanced at the bottom In the window that opens, click Change next to Owner Enter your username and click check names. It should then show your username underlined. Then click ok. The window will go back to the previous window, BUT, nothing has happened yet. Click the box that says "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" Then click ok. This will take a long time. Do not pause it. Do not stop it. Do no reboot
  8. Looks like you started your game about 1:20 after starting the log? That sound about right? Stayed in it for about 30 seconds? Or did you start it faster and did the framerate drop occur about 1:20 after starting the log?
  9. Since you have hwinfo, create a log to share please. How to create a log: Open HWiNFO and choose sensors only. In the bottom right there is an icon that looks like a spreadsheet with a green plus on it. Click that button to start logging, the green plus will switch to a red X to let you know its saving data. It will also ask you for a file name and where to save it. I save them to my desktop, name it whatever you want. Do what you can to replicate the issue. Then (assuming it didn't restart or lockup) click the spreadsheet again so the red X turns back t
  10. It is also a power connection. At 3:06 you can see it still plugged in. This kind of connection is not uncommon in servers, especially from that time.
  11. Same difference. I gave you the troubleshooting steps that i think you should take. Its obvious you are wanting a quick, guaranteed, ah-ha gotcha style solution. That is not a reasonable expectation. Reboot more often and disable the many many items you have that are always running. That's the advice i have.
  12. Clear the bios to start with. The easiest way to clear the cmos/bios is to disconnect the power cord. Open the system and remove the CR2032 battery that's on the mobo somewhere (Note the orientation so you can put it back in the same way). Then with the power cord still unplugged, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds. Then put the battery back in. Then plug it back in and turn it on.
  13. This is correct. If it happens on another system, then its some shared software and/or configuration. The best way to determine what software is causing this is to follow the procedure laid out for you before. Disable everything from starting up when you turn on your pc. Test and re-enable from there. And ultimately, reboot your machine more often. You said you reboot weekly now to help this issue, well, reboot more often. That's normal. If you have expectations of rebooting monthly or yearly, its an unrealistic expectation with the amount of softwar
  14. This may sound odd, but can you print screen it for us and is it then visible in the print screen? Also, have you done any tsing for this yet? Reseated the GPU, cleaned the dust from the system? Used DDU to clean and reinstall the driver? Also, list your system specs so we know what you are dealing with for hardware.
