The behavor of the LED indicator has changed since the RTX 2000 series. White lighting used to indicate normal operation or connector inserted properly.
For the RTX 3000 and 4000 series, no LED means the same thing - normal operation. The reason being that we wanted to improve the cohesive look of complete systems featuring Aura Sync lighting, and reduce the brightness of the system while at night. These were some of the requests from users.
New definition: the LED behavior with a 16-pin adaptor cable (splitter) is:
Red = System shutdown/hibernate/sleep
No LED effect = System on, connector inserted properly
If your PSU has the new 16-pin cable, then connect that directly to the GPU - cleaner build and indicator always off.
what will happen IF once the pc boot and still red color?
No gpu detected.
Some psu example evga supernova 1000P3 that has 7 cables of the 8 coming out from the PSU to the gpu?
This is extremely helpful. When I turned on the PSU and saw that red light, I about had a heart attack. Thankfully, it goes away when the system is on.
Any particular PCIe wiring scenario that makes that LED go away besides a proper 12VHPWR cable from the PSU? I tried an aftermarket 12VHPWR 3-to-1 cable from LINKUP and 1) there was no LED when the system was in shutdown/hibernate/sleep and 2) the GPU would coil whine like crazy with the 3rd party adapter, so I switched back to the included NVIDIA one.
Hi, I'm using an ASUS RTX 4070 Ti ProArt, but my Red LED is always on and won't go away. It turns on, and I've been using my computer for three days now; it's a new build PC, but still wondering if this is normal.
Do you mean the red LED is always on even when you are using it? Always on or sometimes blinking red?
Can you take a picture so we can see how the power is connected?
