I am not sure if this was discussed but the Appearance LED is blocked out. I own two 1080 TI FTW3. I would like to change the white LED to any other color but the New Precision disable that ability.

Have you tried using the LED Sync option on the main page?

Yes and I use it to sync my other LED. It works on the side logos of the GPU.

EVGA LED SYNC works on the side LED but not on the backplate LED.  I'm trying to find the option to change out the color from white to another color.

Try swapping the cards around.

I just tested here with a 1080 Ti FTW3, and here's what you have to do:
 
  1. Open PXOC.
  2. Open the LED Sync.
  3. Close the LED Sync first by clicking X, then right click and close it in the system tray (task manager is not needed).
  4. Open the Option tab in PXOC, and you'll see the options for Appearance and Thermal available now.
  5. Make your changes for your backplate and thermal sensors.
  6. Close the option tab and open the LED Sync.
  7. Setup your Sync, and the backplate and GPM should remain the same as what you set in Step 5 (unless you pick Follow Badge Color...for obvious reasons).

Lol. This definitely needs to be fixed. A person shouldn't have to do all that just to get the appearance & thermal tabs to work.

Well, sometimes I can tell people how to fix things...sometimes I can tell people how to make things work.  This is one of the latter times.

Pinning this thread as I'm pretty sure other people will need to do the same.

So you're saying you are able to access the appearance/thermal tabs, or are you saying you can only access the led sync window?

I cannot access the Led Sync button, it is grayed out. Also I cannot access the Appearance tab or thermal led. they are grayed out as well.

Re: Fix for appearance/thermal led tabs being blacked out 2017/12/21 05:58:26 (permalink)
I have a similar problem. When I click on the setting cog in XOC I CAN access the Appearance LED tab but the Thermal LED tab is grayed out. I can either use the Appearance LED tab in the settings menu or I can use LED sync; they both work to control the LED but they don't have an option for thermal control fo the LED. I want the LED color to change in response to GPU temperature. Is this possible with the EVGA GTX 1080 Hybrid?

Not possible with precision.

Like @Toasteetv it wont let me enable the sync to get my led enabled. I have a 1060 SSC 


 
Any other ideas maybe editing a file or regedit?

Maybe it is not enabled due to only having 1 single evga video card.

I think the LED appearance option is disabled for GPU's lower than GTX 1080. The cards only have white LED for the name.
