Maybe the game is doing some shadowy crypto-mining in the background?
I guess I see now why EVGA cards dropped prices the most. They generally suffer from over-heating, so much for the EVGA quality. And it's not the first time. That's why I prefer MSI instead.
You say this and yet EVERY msi card I've owned (which was dual 1080 in sli) both crapped out and had to be replaced not only once but TWICE and yet I've owned evga cards from 780 to 3080 ti (and every 80/ti card in between them minus the mentioned 1080) and put of all those cards only ever had to rma a card once and only because of a line appearing randomly.
The msi cards died so hard I couldn't get video.
Just saying everyone's experiences can spell completely different situations.
