Can someone tell me how many versions of the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW was released? I am only referring to the regular version and not the TI or Hybrid versions.  I am trying to figure out if there was a version released that did not have RGB -led's.  I just recently acquired one and there does not seem to be anyway of changing the RGB settings on it.  I have downloaded the precision x oc software and even tried the precision x1 but neither allows me to change the color of the led's.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you have one of those 4 model numbers, you will not be able to change the LED color.  Check your model number to make sure that your "FTW" is actually a FTW.  Is it the correct part number?  Does it have 2 BIOS chips?  If not, it could be a fake.
     
    Otherwise, it is probably just a software issue.  EVGA's software is notoriously bad and having issues changing the LED colors is a common complaint.  In that case, see if this thread helps:

    Thanks for your replies.  I have found the answer I was looking for elsewhere. It would appear that my card has a (some?) led's that are out. I was able to figure out the software issue to change the color of the led's but It is limited due to the burnt out LED's.
