HELP! 1080 Ti Freezing Ingame After M.2 SSD Install.

So I've recently changed my Samsung 850 EVO SSD to a 970 PRO and now when I try to get my 1080 Ti on full load (benchmarks or games) it crashes the whole system.

I've tried multiple fixes, clean driver uninstalls and installs but nothing seemed to work. I'll be attaching a dxdiag.txt below but for convenience's sake, I'll post my simplified specs below.


PS.: I've tested it mainly on Far Cry 5, and, after trying the fixes, it seemed to work fine when gaming just until I hit a cutscene, after the cutscene ended it would hard crash.

It seems to be a power issue and I fear I won't be able to use my new SSD...

PS.2: Yes, I know that I won't be able to use the 970 PRO's full speed regardless.

PS.3: Everything was working fine until the upgrade. Haven't changed any BIOS settings. Haven't been gaming for awhile though, so can't be 100% sure if it was working properly.
