    1. Reseat GPU. Tried it twice. Even to a different PCIE slot.
    2. DDU twice. No change.
    3. I used Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming for OC tool cause that's the first OC tool that I used before MSI and it clearly displays the sensors and graphs.
    4. Power performance from Windows 10 power plan, Nvidia to Bios. I have tried all. No change.

    Thanks for the reply. But minimally, the GPU should hit at least >5000 without doing all the fancy OC and power plan adjustments, right?

    Did tried changing PCIE slot too. No help there.
    I did tried to reset my CMOS, but that was to clear my CPU to overclock cause it kept crashing my GPU. However, it didn't work too.

    Meaning, change the Nvidia power profile in control panel to prefer maximum performance, restart your PC, then test to see if the memory clock speed is running correctly.

    Sometimes settings like that don't take effect until your PC has been restarted.

    What settings are you using on afterburner ie core voltage, power limit, temp limit, core clock setting and memory clock setting. Along with a generous fan setting for cooling, I don't mind fan noise, this is what I set my afterburner at: Core Voltage to 100% - Power Limit to 120% - Temp Limit to 92 - (Also set bias to temp limit) - Core Clock to 215 - Memory Clock to 545. For benchmark purpose turn your fan cooling to 100% during test. See if this helps your score. I have 4790k at 4.7 OC with Strix Gtx 1080 and Corsair 110i 2nd edition cooler. Also I just noticed on your time spy card read out your memory is at 405mhz that is way too low it should be higher than that like around 1000+ adjust it on your afterburner if it dosn't go up then the card is bad..
    Sorry I didn't see all the other help you had, it does look like the card is bad, has happened to me but usually you don't get any picture at all when it is bad, thus the confusion.

    Well, like I said, it looks like others have posted on the net, a faulty GPU (or more likely: VRAM chip).
    Glad you got it worked out! Enjoy your new card ;)

    Thanks for the speedy replies and help! My new Time Spy score! https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/24549216. Should it be higher? I am running on stock OC profile.

    nope, looks legit for stock clocks. Depends on your system's boost anyway (e.g. how hot the card runs in your case).
