Problems with 3080 OC (random reboot)

After what seems like ages I've finally managed to get my hands on a ROG STRIX 3080 OC (got it as a bundle). After fitting it in my case and being amazed by the performance over my previous RX 580 I decided to put up Forza Horizon 5 and cranked everything up to max. This worked and looked great running at 60+ fps but I am randomly getting some restarts after playing for a while. Card is supplied by 3 direct cables to my Corsair RMX 750 PSU. Since the recommended PSU is 850w (and considering that the RX 580 worked fine) this is my primary suspect. Is there a way to limit the max power draw (at the cost of performance) or would you just get a new 850W+ PSU?

Specs as follows:
AMD Ryzen 5600x
ROG Strix B550-A Gaming
ROG Strix 3080 OC (v2)
Corsair Vengeance 32GB RAM
Samsung EVO 970 1 TB SSD
Corsair RMX 750
Windows 10

Thanks for your help.

If you want to use the 3080 to its full potential then you should upgrade the PSU. Otherwise you could use MSI Afterburner to lower the power limit.

You can certainly try installing MSI Afterburner and turning down the power target, but obviously replacing the PSU makes more sense in the long term.

Check the event viewer for error codes. Do you still have Windows set to reboot automatically when it BSODs?
