Hey guys I just got this card a few hours ago and I have a solid red led on the 3rd power PCIe slot the card is running fine but I have seen this card on other peoples build with no red light.
 
As of now I have tired shuffling around the cables and trying multiple slots on the power supply and nothing has changed. Any help would be appreciated

    Can you install this PX update? It should prompt to update the firmware, does it still happen after that?

    I am in a similar boat.  Been trying to figure out what's wrong but no idea.  I'm on three dedicated plugs to the PSU which is a Seasonic Silent Snow 750W so should be plenty of power.  I also downloaded  the PX linked above and did not get prompted for a firmware update.  Anyone know how to trigger the firmware update? 

    Additionally and not sure if it's linked but none of my RGB is lighting up on the card.  Going into PX and changing colors / modes does nothing.  Anyone else with the RED LED issue seeing no RGB?

    I’m having this same exact problem. It just happened today about an hour ago. Just opened a ticket, Really bummed. I was really enjoying this card.

    To the people still experiencing this problem. The steps to try are force updating the firmware if that doesn’t work pls reach out to their customer service and to start an RMA. Jacob went through all the steps via email with me then started the RMA in my behalf. I received the new card today and it works perfectly! Whole process took around 5 days and we had a stat holiday here in Canada should be less than that now

    They're beta testing the pre-release, 4 to 6 months from now is when the real 3080s come out.
