I'm going out on a limb here and shall suggest your CM MWE 650 White PSU is the culprit. Never had much faith in CM power supplies, no matter what CM claims on their packaging. Have yet to see one test out like CM represents as far as output, stability, etc.

And I'd also tend to think at 650W, esp. given the brand, that it's being pushed to its limit.

Of course, this "guess" is being made on the assumption that your other componentry, such as memory, etc., is good.

650W PSU with a 2080ti + Ryzen 9 3900X

Sorry but this was very poor build planning.

275W for the 2080ti,
220W for the Ryzen 9

495W Approx... on a 650W PSU...

No... just No.... Very poor choice on parts...
I am going with Meghan saying i am guessing its your PSU shooting out, since the shutdown events are always under load, and most likely its your 12V rail shutting out under the high load from your GPU and CPU.
