Is that RAM on the motherboard's QVL list, and set to run the timings it is designed for?
Yes, I found the list yesterday and updated the timings. The "Auto" function actually had all the same settings that were suggested in the list. Unfortunately, the problem has persisted.
What OS are you using?
What power supply are you using?
Have you tested the power supply?
Are both power cables connected to the motherboard? (24 pin and 8 pin)
Is the power cable plugged into the GPU?
OS - Windows 10
PSU - SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W
I have not tested the power supply explicitly but I have tried 2 different PCI-E ports and cords. I'm not sure what you mean by both cables - I have one 8 pin cable going from GPU to the PSU, and the 24 pin going from the motherboard to the PSU.

There is an 8 pin power connector on the top left hand side of the motherboard that also needs to be plugged in.
Sorry about the confusion. I DO have the 8 pin from top left motherboard to PSU, the 8 pin from GPU to PSU, and the 12 pin from right side motherboard to PSU.
Get a power supply tester and test the voltages on the power supply to rule that out.
If the memory (RAM) you are using is on the QVL list and in the correct slots on the motherboard, run a memory test to rule that out.
If necessary, take the motherboard into a service center and have it tested.

Hey man, I have the EXACT same problem as you! I also have a very similar build (Same mobo, cpu, except a 1080 for GPU):
Windows 10 64 bit
AMD Ryzen 5 2600
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080
16 GB Vulcan DDR4 3000 RAM
Gigabyte B450M DS3H Motherboard
WD 500GB SSD / 1 TB SeaGate Barracuda
SeaSonic 550W Gold.
Sometimes it will take me multiple times to get things showing on my screen (Have to hold down power button and restart until screen actually shows up despite fans, keyboard, and mouse RGB showing all the time).
My PC was working the first 3 days I built it perfectly as well, but afterwards it started crashing constantly doing basic tasks. (First crashes I noticed were while playing YouTube videos). One thing I've noticed is it actually never crashed at all while gaming, only when I never had a game running. It freezes and restarts often when doing driver / Windows updates as well, and has even freezed before while looking at BIOS settings/
I've tried plugging in and off both of my RAM sticks as well as doing memtest, memory diagnostic tools, etc. and the ram doesn't seem to be a problem at all.
I've also reinstalled Windows on my SSD and even installing and booting from my hard drive but no success, my BIOS is also the latest 06/06/2018 one and my GPU driver is updated to the latest but I've also tried downgrading it to the CD one included with the GPU.
I've even took my PC to a local computer shop and they blamed it on my GPU being defected and i'm unsure if I can trust the diagnosis or if I should actually send it back for a replacement.
At least I've found a thread that describes the exact same things i'm experiencing, hope yours gets fixed, I will let you know if I find my own fix.
Yeah those symptoms match what I'm going through almost exactly. I haven't gamed for a prolonged time on the machine but I've never had a crash while playing rocket league or other games. Frame rates and temperatures are all around what I would expect. I have had crashes when on Youtube, Chrome, Blender, Fusion 360 (only working with small single files), Word, and others.
I've got a thread going also over on the geforce website. I will be trying some of their suggestions later today, and I'll be sure to update here.
It's been really frustrating! I hope we find the issue soon...
