Is there any other way to download the MCU updater? I have tried multiple computers, browsers, and connections and none of them will download from the links provided. I keep getting a network timeout error.

I am super bummed. My 2080 TI FTW3 is also having this issue. I just built this rig and I'm really hoping to get it setup and game ready.
 
I installed precision x1 and it immediately tried to install a firmware update. The update failed and now there are 3 red LED's lighting up over the power connection. The middle fan is also spinning at 100% and the logo is not longer lighting up. I did try this fix ( but its not working. It wont launch. It just says "This device is not supported!". I did try running it was administrator. I also updated my BIOS and ran all driver and windows updates that I am ware of. I also tried flipping the switch to overclock mode and still no luck.
 
I am running a GIGABYTE Aorus Ultra z390 Mother board and an Intel 8086k. Nothing is over clocked and not settings have been messed with. I just set this rig up and was installing the basics before messing with anything.
 
Is there another link that may work for me or something else I need to be doing?! Help! :(

Newest version PX1. Three LEDs lit. No nameplate lights. Middle fan spins on normal. Three fans spinning on oc mode. Both modes do not accept firmware update. I'm still working with tech support. No solution yet.

There is no way to repair the problem. Support told me to make a RMA... :(

Sounds like the newest version of px1 needs to be pulled.

Are you serious, if the firmware update in px1 0.3.7 was used on a 2080ti ftw3 the cards need to be rma'd?

If there is a firmware window pop up and you close it for some reason the firmware update didn’t go through the card will be rma’d. No fix for it so far

Has anyone else had the problem on there rtx 2080ti ftw3 after this update that has caused resolution issues or problems updating nvidia drivers or is it just a fluke on mine right now? i also just updated to the Windows 10 1809 version so maybe thats causing issues as well.
