So after many days & reinstalls I found the cause of the problem.

The issue was caused when PowerMizer changes performance levels and under clocks the card. I changed the Preferred Mode to "Prefer Maximum Performance" and now I have no system hangs or freezes.

Thing is, this option resets on reboot so I'll have to look into making a start up script which solves this.

This fix also solves another issue I came across where the screen would freeze for a few seconds, then resume but I can only move the mouse but can't actually do anything.

I assume not all Nvidia 1080 cards have this issue. My specific card is an Asus Geforce GTX 1080 O8G.

Hopefully this fix will save someone else a lot of time and effort.
