Hello all,

I have a strange issue with my GPU on Windows 7 64 genuine. It is a gigabyte http://www.gigabyte.us/Graphics-Card/GV-N1080XTREME-8GD-PP-rev-10# at stock - no overclocking.

For the past few months I had the drivers crashing while the PC is idle on desktop or doing very very light browsing - no videos and the like just banners and pics and so on. No crashes on games whatsoever at 1440p 144hz.
It is not mozilla or chrome specific and crashes happen without the browsers open.

At first I thought it was due to the drivers and I used the last 6 versions all the way up to 391.01 to test.
Then I thought the GPU might be switching off or downclocknig too much and set the settings to "high-performance" throughout my pc settings.
Then I tested the RAM sticks (2x8gb) I have with memtest. Both passed.
I then tested with MSI Afterburner off and on. While on I captured what happens when the crashes occur.

The findings are below:

Do you have any suggestions as to what be going on?
