Unfortunately, my two graphics cards (zotac amp extreme 980ti)have fallen victim to this problem.
does not help anything. I spent the solution and setting the problem for two days. clean instal, bios default or many setups.. no way
Of course when i put to that motherboard old nvidia 680-worked without problems. and ATI 7970 too... soo its not hw problems or mobo pci l limitations
Problems started on linux mint 18,1 and after did not help clean install of Win 10 or some server editions.. soo its not proably OS problem..
Bloody nvidia leave 174 pages thread left without a solution. So stay away from 900series .
but i read there people with 1070 have same problems too... scary
four day before tour de primes ((..

What are you trying to run? I assume some flavor of GFN.

While not ideal, are you able to max out GPU utilization by running multiple units simultaneously? See http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=7240&nowrap=true#104031

Edit:I also assume your cards aren't throttling for some reason, such as thermally throttling due to a fan profile which limits fan speed.

it began few weeks on linux mint, when i finished few GFN 22 with good results. After trouble started when one card started to "like under-clock" and tasks are no longer running look like paused/freezed or not progress.or after long time finished with error..
Then i try clean install Win 10 and the lastest nvidia driver. then i tried also some older NV drivers.
But not help.
When i try run Moo wrapper or gpugrid tasks-tasks immediately fall into error = soo i think there is some hw problem on memory part of card..
But i get to work on few hours (no error) few pps tasks and gfn 16 .. these are nearly "only gpu core" based soo they work for while..

The 3D render test in gpu-z works and also on the high frequency gpu core . in that test card works seamlessly long. but when i try all other type work on card- in gpu-z utilization limited - gray colour , as say also people on that nv forum thread.. but in games no

I also tried in the last nvidia driver that - optimized for computing setup or instal origin or other "magic" what recomended people from that geforce thread )) no help
edit: today after some trying /playing with drivers card start show some artifact in 2D soo i think its done )
According to what people are saying in this long thread from geforce forum about this whole problem?: It is for us the only hope for positive endings RMA ))

yes maybe "heavy" gnf 22 damaged that cards becouse they have loong time behind on 24/7/365 use before ..))
xserver was showing 99% use soo they was runing on "full" ,soo i dont need run more than one task
'They was not in throttling mod becouse i always set in zotac overclock software firestorm auto or adaptive Fan mode .. never over 80 c . on linux too..
i think there is some nv driver problems with whole 900 serie cards becouse nvidia keep noise about that

I had a problem with similar (but not identical) symptoms, albeit with a R9 280x.

After crunching GFN22 for several years 24x7, one day it experienced a fan failure (1/2) and caused a thermal shutdown. After that it would act normally just after boot up, and throttle to 300mhz core after several hours (initially) and several minutes (eventually).

This 280x has a secondary heat sink over its VRMs and memory. Cleaning the heck out of ot (when the fan failed whatever oil was in the bearings founds its way to the PCB), and replacing those thermal pads fixed it. It is back happily crunching. With a slight o/c now too.

Personally, 80C is a little higher than I want to see my GPUs. Can you set a fan profile where it doesn't exceed 70C?
