    ASUS strix 3060 OC 12GB - Blinking red lights about PCIE power

    Hi,

    I am using a ASUS strix 3060 OC 12GB, with the 850W Thor. I used the PCIE braded power cables.

    Not sure why the light is blinking and what is the cause.
    Anyone have any official documentation on the blinking?

    I saw some fixes that need to use GPU Tweak, but I want to know the cause.

    Asus' cards don't come with any documentation that I could find. My 3080 came with basic installation instructions only.
    Anyway, try using as many separate PCIE/VGA cables as is required from your PSU to the card; for example, if the card requires 3x8 PCIE/VGA connections, use 3 separate cables coming from your PSU to your card. In other words, don't use the pig tails that may be coming off of any one cable.
    I only get the red light if one of the 3x8 connections on my card is missing. I also have a 850W PSU 80+ Gold.

    I had this problem for the first time after the last BIOS update of my Z690 HERO after some research, I found the solution, you just have to unplug the power cord for about 5 minutes, put it back and flashing red lights will be gone . (Asus Strix 3080Ti 12G-OC)

    Getting this now on a Strix 3090Ti. It was fine for a couple weeks and then suddenly the red light starting flashing today. I have no idea what the reason is. The PSU is a beefy Corsair 1600I.

    Could the cable have suddenly come loose or something? Weird.

    To solve this issue, you just need to turn off the swtich of the power supply and unplug the power cord for a couple of minute. And insert back the power power cord, turn on the swtich and power up your system. That what I do for my system.

    Edit: It always happen if have installed any Asus Tweak software.
