    Hello.
    Gigabyte 2080 Ti Aorus Waterforce Xtreme



    The LED lights are located above the PCIe power connectors on the card.


    When card is underload i can see white lights near pcie 2 connectors. Not blinking. Just white lights continuously. No problem in stability,clocks are normal.

    Psu is Seasonic ULTRA TX 750W Platinum. Anybody have the same card?

    Card is plugged by 2 separate pcie cables.
    But according to AORUS white leds lightning continuosly means that there is no power. Both two white lights are not blinking. They just lightning continuously. Card working ok.

    Hello. I think what you are seeing is a typo error in their marketing material. I think the words "Light on" and "Light off" are reversed by mistake.

    Look more closely at the image you posted.

    These statements in that image are contradictory:
    • Consistent LED: Stable Power Supply
    • Light on: power cable disconnected
    Since your GPU is functioning properly, we must conclude that the first statement is accurate.

    The second statement has to be inaccurate or your GPU would not be functional with power cables disconnected.

    Weird there are some peoples without that 2 white lights under load with the same card. And there are peoples with 2 white lights. But no issues still. Maybe its bios of card? Anyway no worries if card working good?

    I definitely wouldn't worry about it if the GPU is working correctly. Gigabyte should clear that up because what you posted (from them) is totally self-contradictory. Maybe they couldn't make up their mind, so they made some with lights on and some with lights off, LOL.

    You should be fine. Maybe the LED controller had a hiccup. As long as the GPU functions correctly I would not worry about it if it were my GPU.

    So. The power led indicators light up for some reason and do not turn off until i restart pc. After restarting PC, they do not light up. At the same time, the logo stopts to play with colors, and burns constantly.
    Even if I load the card heavily, the indicators do not turn on.

    It happens sometimes on loading screen in 3dmark Port Royal. Also performance and clocks are not affected. Just that 2 constant power led white lights and gpu aorus logo stuck on 1 colour. In the same time ,card is not recognized Aorus Engine program in led settings.

    When i reboot pc ,gpu logo is changing again colours and i dont see that power led pcie 2 white colours.

    Can i ignore this??

    If everything is functioning properly except the LEDs then yes, I would ignore it. If it very bothersome to you and the GPU is under warranty maybe contact Gigabyte and ask them what they can do to address the misbehaving LEDs. Maybe there is a firmware update or something.

    I can tell you that the LEDs on my EVGA FTW3 GPU function normally with the stock firmware, but do not function normally using the non-EVGA firmware I have on the GPU. The original EVGA LED control software does not work with the non-EVGA vBIOS that I am using.

    Are you using 2 separate pci-e cables? Or just the one cable daisy chain?

    Nevermind, just noticed you are rightly using two cables.
