    I have the same thing on the XC3 Ultra, 3 red lit LEDs when powered off. Not really sure what they're supposed to represent.

    I have a XC3 Ultra and my card doesn’t exhibit this behavior. No red lights on boot up or shut down. When I first installed my card I noticed 3 or 4 red lights, and I repositioned my pins by swapping them around and they went out. I’ve been paying close attention since then when booting up and shutting down, and also during gaming sessions and they haven‘t reappeared.

    Looks like it's flash mode according to this thread. So long as they don't stay on when running everything should be fine. If they do, you may need to enable ErP in your mobo BIOS.
