So tonight I was simply re-orienting the LL strimer cables going to the gpu and low and behold I see this red light above the first 8-pin on the right and Windows wasn’t coming on the screen. I knew this had something to do with the cables so I took them out of the sockets and reinserted them again and it was working again. Problem is every time I power on the pc 3 or 4 red lights flash on for a split second. I don’t think the 3090 has done this before until now? Are these red lights a signal of things yet to come? I just got this gpu last month so it’s still practically brand new. Anyone here who knows something about this please tell me I’m just worrying too much lol.

    I think it's normal. My 3080 ftw3, 3080 ti xc3, and 3090 ti all have those red lights on for a very short period of time on startup as well (also tested with three different PSUs). The cards are running fine. Why do they do this, I don't know lol. I have seen many others report the same on this forum in the past.

    Thanks! Guess this is really commonplace with other EVGA owners. Feeling a lot better now lol! Thanks again!

    As long as your video card is working fine there is nothing to worry about.

    The red lights pop on for a millisecond when you power it on.
