duggiefreshHello, I've been having issues all week with my RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra card with intermittent display output issues and I guess this is breaking point. After starting a benchmark that proceeded to knocked out all my display output and cranked the fans to the max, I pressed the power button to reset the computer again and after restart, I saw the red led light up on the third PCIE port furthest from the fan + rgb header (or closest to the nvlink port). Here is what I've tried so far.Swapped cables, didn't fix the issueSwapped to another port on the power supply, didn't fix the issueSwapped to another computer that I know is working, didn't fix the issueThis is my Mobo+CPU+PSU:Ryzen 5800xx570 MSI GodlikeEVGA 1600 T2 PSUI've been trying to look for some sort of manual describing what these LEDs mean, but I really haven't seen anything from their manuals. I don't think they even have manuals for this series of cards specifically yet. I do have a second RTX 3090 coming in since I'm doing an SLI, so maybe that card will work in the meanwhile. This is the first time where I'm having so much issues with a computer build and any help would be appreciated at this point. Does this sound like a case RMA? Appreciate the support!
duggiefreshWell, that sucks. How long did that RMA process take for you since the 3090 is in limited stock?
BaashaThis is incredible - this happened to me last night and now I too have a red LED on the GPU. This is so frustrating. I hope it can be recovered - have you tried the "normal" BIOS and see if it worked then? I tried it and I still get no video signal. Looks like my card (3090 FTW3 Ultra) will have to be RMA'd as well. Ugh...
Naur1This happened to me few days ago and currently in the RMA process. Its a bad sign if the card RGB don't even light up at all. Four day weekend to play some games and chill and here we are waiting to get a new replacement lol
schulmasterEveryone speaks so highly about EVGA, and I know their customer service is great, but remaining silent on what has to be close to a 10% RMA rate on these FTLs is customer disservice. With stock so limited, and the queue system, this can't simply be vocal-minority-forumitis. Is it better to have 1% of your customers hate your RMA process, but 99% have a useable product the first time( ahem...ASUS...cough). Where is the mea culpa from EVGA? At the very least they could say "we see concern on the forums, but we assure RMA rates are within acceptable parameters". Even if that's a platitude, silence is worse.
