Unsure if I should be concerned or not but my 3080 FTW3 has a single red LED on the lefthand most power connector..
 
The card has been running fine for a week since I received it but after a colleague had to RMA his XC3 Ultra for the red LED of death I'm not sure what the best course of action is.
 

 
I'd be willing to RMA if it was a major issue but only problem is I'm in australia so I'm assuming the return time will be in the weeks etc.

    So far everyone that gets that their graphic card died so how ur getting it and the card is currently fine is a head scratcher.  I would just play on it for a few more days and see.  If it dies it dies, not much you can do.  EVGA is not going to be back in the office until Monday so I'm guessing earliest you get another card is 3 weeks using standard RMA.  My 3090 died yesterday with a single red light

    Yeah I'm quite confused myself at how it's still running. My colleague with a 3080 XC3 just had his die with the red light of death yet mine is still gaming and running strong. 
     
    I'll keep an eye on it, wait for EVGA's support response and if I do have to ship it back I'll send it to the supplier I got it from in Aus as they said they'll swap it out with a replacement FTW3 so that I'm not out of a card for any extended period of time.
