the_Scarlet_oneAs for needing to force a setting to set fans that don't exist to 0%, I don't think that is a real issue. 0% of 0% is still 0%. There are no fans attached to the header, and they are not "running". X1 is not trying to turn a fan on, because there is nothing to turn on. If you set them to run at 100% in the setting menu, they will still sit at 0%. In your screen shot, you say "Fans still running!" but they are not. They are at 0. Now, if you sell the card, and you have disabled the fans, and the next user switches back to Air cooling but doesn't know you disabled the fans. That is a terrible setting to have, as the fans should never be fully disabled. When they are not attached, they are not drawing power.
SajinFlashing the hydro copper vbios to your card should fix that... https://www.techpowerup.c...rtx3080-10240-210305-2
