I figured something was wrong when i was changing video settings in csgo and my game would crash. sometimes not even doing anything will make it crash. when i run heaven my gpu starts climbing temps very fast all the way up to 93 until the fans kick on high gear and brings it down to 80. HUGE swings in clock speeds 1800 - 1400. gpu-z says perfcap reason temps and power.

Sounds like thermal throttling. It's the card downclocking to protecting itself from burning out.

What case? What fans are you running with it? When was the last time you dusted off your system?

Try undervolting it to something like 0.875 @ 1830 and see if the temps improve.

You've got warranty on that GPU? If not you can try repasting and changing thermal pads or else it might be RMA time?

If it's still covered under warranty - I'd swap it out ASAP. Otherwise - repasting and swapping thermal pads is the only solution.
Had quite a few 3080/3090 cards in my workshop that started throttle overtime regardless of whether they were mining or gaming cards.
In most cases it was VRAM temps that caused throttling(TDP drops to below 200W, clocks never rise above 1GHz)
In one case with my friend's 3080ti - it was a shitty mistake by whoever assembled the card in the Gigabyte factory. One thermal pad was missing, hence a chip overheated and throttled the entire card. Plus, cooling is so shitty(massive but barely functional) that in some dire cases I had to do a copper shim mod with 0.5mm pads (nearly always it's Gigabyte or MSI)

Check if the fans of the card are all working.

Guys! the RTX 3080 Ti is a new card, no need to repaste anything. Its also a power hungry card that can easily eat 350-400 watts (Edit: EVGA FTW3 has 450watt BIOS). NVIDIA safety is 93 before it starts to downclock. The card isn't getting damaged because it needs to be at 96+.

I'm thinking its more to do with probably poor airflow rather than a faulty card. It shouldn't crash though, but that could be another problem altogether or part of the equation.

What I would do is set the fans to 100% and see if it crashes the computer first. That will rule out a bunch of things.

Now if the OP bought it used...well it's probably a broken mining card. Get your money back now!

figure out why its downclocking. Is it because A) case airflow B) bad thermal paste/pads or C) abused mining card. Personally If I tried the basic troubleshooting, I would RMA it. However, if it's not the card, the replacement will exhibit the same problems...

Not in this case. Pretty much all non-reference designs have flaws, regardless of whether it makes sense or not.
I think 30-series is the worst, most flawed, and most prone to failure out of all GPU generations that ever existed(including infamous AMD 200/300 series).
They are still awesome and powerful cards, but once again ODMs f#$%ed it up. I'm afraid to even think what's going to happen with upcoming GPUs that have a TDP of my water heater.
Just to put it into perspective:
* lots of 3060 Ti are prone to VRAM failures. Vik-On(notorious GPU repair youtuber) already started to fill up his "jar of shame", which he wants to send to SKHynix :D
* 3080/ti overheating is a widespread problem. That 300-400W TDP and huge cooling systems are the ones causing problems (factory defects, misalignment and bending, especially overtime).
Out of all these cards that I've seen personally there's only one Palit 3090 that my friend owns which still holds up like a champ, though the previous owner did repaste/re-pad it last December.
All the other ones already went through my office with one of the 2 symptoms: 1) VRAM hitting 110C(that's when card starts to severely throttle); 2) Heatsink skews a bit and causes GPU to spike above 90C due to uneven pressure.
Some cards have ridiculous backplates, like MSI 3080 that I modded recently. It has plastic backplate with something that looks like aluminum composite embedded just around the GPU bracket. It kinda works, but before pad replacement it was hitting over 100C with stock clocks, while after replacing pads with copper shims it became a comfortable 75C.
Gigabyte is the worst. I think it's due to their choice of cooling system: it is huge and heavy, but has a giant 1.5-2mm gap for VRAM pads, and unlike MSI - it has no metal top plate that acts like a VRAM heatspreader. Basically the heat exchange on VRAM is bad on the front, and severely limited on the back. VRAM may hit 110C easily, but the backplate stays comfortably warm to the touch.

I’m not surprised, typical brands I avoid these days. I think with Nvidia, Asus is still solid and maybe EVGA, it’s just not enough. AMD has far better options with AIBs, all AMD exclusive AIBs are good. The usual suspects like PowerColor, Sapphire, Asrock, XFX.
