jeffmdatfricothe led cable is loose probably? you might have to see it for yourself by dismantling the GPU.So... addressable led strips do not work like that. A lose cable would just mean you get no lights. There are 3 wires. 2 power and one data. a break at any specific point would darken the lights from that point, down to the end of the strip. Addressable LEDs have a tiny microchip in each package, and it is common for these chips to go bad. Ask anyone who does Christmas pixel lights. -_-

Ghawain86Hello there, My 3080ti had this occur on the end ARGB EVGA logo. The light was flickering like a rave was going on inside. At first it was just for a short duration, then it just wouldn't stop, even when I turned the light off via software. I tried reseating the cable via opening the shroud, a complete reinstall of windows without controlling software for any ARGB and a few other tricks I saw off reddit, but it would still come back. I eventually just cross ship RMA'd it. I think I got lucky because I received the new card within four days and my "defective" card is almost back in their hands. The collateral cost is insane for this though. These cards are so expensive these days, I think that all features should work, so my advice, RMA that thing as soon as possible, especially if you are within the 30 day period of purchasing it. You never know if that RGB issue is a symptom of something underlying that will spring up later. If it's just a simple RGB swap out, then it'll be a good reconditioned card for someone else.
