Hi,
these are the facts: monday my new card MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio work perfectly in with 456.38 nVidia driver, no CTD in CoD MW,
today with the new driver 456.55, after 30 sec, in CoD MW, at 60Celsius, CTD pop in, after restarting the game CTD again, after 2 min!
Today after reverting back to 456.38, CDT are back... :(
Any thoughts, please help!

My system:
Intel Core i9-9900K
RAM Kingston HyperX 32 GB DDR4-3600
MSI MEG Z390 Godlike
MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio
M2 NVMe Samsung SSD 970 1Tb
HDD Seagate 2Tb
PSU BeQuiet Dark Power Pro 12 1200W
Windows 10 1909
Good cable management, good airflow

Try to undervolt your card, you'll get to keep high frequencies but at a lower voltage with less fluctuations. Just make sure you go with the latest drivers just to be on the safe side.

I'm running a 0,950 voltage and it works pretty great so far. Do note that every chip is different and that you must do some benchmarks to determine a voltage you can start with.

Hi I have a 3080 ventus mine doesn't crash on stock settings as it doesn't boost above 2ghz hits 1995mhz max but if I over clock 10 mhz so it hits that 2ghz it crashes
I have the 3080 Ventus 3x OC. Do you have the OC model or just Ventus and what capacitor configuration does your card have,please and thank you ?

Depressing that most card manufacturers cheaped out on these cards. With MSI's record you would thought they would have been the exception. They usually make good products for cheaper competitive prices with deals. Glad I didn't rush into the 3000 or 6000 series cards. My Msi 5600 xt gaming mx seems to be running great. I don't overclock it tho but I do have their boosting tool. Obviously my card is much weaker than the 3000 series but it was also a bit cheaper $$$ because not everyone has over $700 to spend on a card.
My opinion on that is MSI didn't cheap out on anything to do with the capacitors...

If the card is really crashing at stock i wonder if it qualifies as defective, looks like it should and should be replaced by MSI?

I have the opposite experience. I used to crash past 2025mhz so I clocked it at max 2010mhz. Then the new driver came, and my max clock was 1995mhz and thought ok they underclocked so I overclocked again and decided to test. Now I am stable at 2085mhz max. New driver helped a lot.
MSI 3080 TrioX with 10mmlc caps / 5POScaps.
I heard the new ones have 2 sets of mmlcs now. Got mine at launch.

That is not true. There is only one version of each card (1+5 for 3080s). The drivers fixed CTD issues. The cap thing was overblown
