Hey everyone. I've spent a few hours looking through google and couldn't find anything about this - therefore I came here ;).
I just happened to look over to my monitoring... monitor while in a game and saw a really weird power draw reading.

During the choppy part the indication in the text field was "--". I was wondering what this could mean. Is my Power Supply, MoBo or Grafics Card dying? After I saw this I closed everything and removed the OC ->

After a couple of minutes it went back to normal.

My Rig:
Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite
Ryzen 7 3800x
32 GB RAM
RTX 2080
Lepa 800W power supply

If there is any further information needed, to answer my question feel free to ask.

I mean, are you experiencing any problems or is it just a weird monitoring graph? I think you need to explain your problem further. What do you mean with "the choppy part"?

I didn't see anything apart from the drops in the power draw, 6 and 8-pin connectors graph (which is the choppy part I mentioned). Since I am pushing it a bit by having longer sessions with the OC on (and since it's late ;)) I just shut it off and went looking for an explanation.

The GPU is throttling itself all the time so this shouldn't be a problem. If you're not experiencing any issues like stuttering, you should be fine :)
