Defective 2080 Ti FE?

Hey, I’ve recently encountered this issue and the CS people asked me to ask here:

S/N: 0323818177352
900-1G150-2530-000 AA 032
Linux : Ubuntu 18.04.1
Driver: 410.78
Motherboard: MSI X99A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM LGA 2011-v3

I have 2 GPU setup. I’ve tried to replace this one with another RTX 2080 Ti (maintaining 2 GPU setup), running for about hour, no problem. When use this GPU (within this 2 GPU setup), it quickly faults under 1 minute or so at full load. I’ve repeated this 2 to 3 times, and tried different PCIe slots, the same. When compare these two setups (with the faulty one and with another 2080 Ti), I tried to keep them in the same PCIe slot to make sure there is not fault on the MB.
