    Matrix Led and Reset button

    Just installed a new Matrix 980GTX . The led go from blue to speckled orange. Seems to be no safe mode or over OC red mode. When card apparently reached limit and froze up reset button did nothing. Is reset button led supposed to be on. because it is not.
    Temperature seems fine. Using gaming mode max of 66 C. Already had several defective of these from Newegg. Noticed Amazon has a note on there site about customer complaints, do not know if this is related.

    The LED will change color depending on the load. There is no over OC red mode. When you see the red LED, it's because there is a heavy load.

    As for Safe Mode, you will not see the corresponding green LED unless you put your GPU into that mode. And no, the button doesn't remain lit by default. To recover the factory vBIOS for your GPU, make sure your system is shutdown. Press the Safe Mode button. Then turn on your system. Once inside Windows, launch GPU Tweak. A window will come up indicating the steps.

    Thanks for the info it partly helps. I did try safe mode using GPU tweak, but light stays blue. When system was rebooted after freeze up LED started blinking green reset button came on but nothing happened. Needed to reset computer to an earlier time to clear everything up. Before shut down was getting out of range notice. Will try OC again in a few days see what happens. Any other advice would be appreciated.

    Your problem is probably cause by other factors. Unless you intentionally burn your overclock into the GPU, you wouldn't need to use the Safe Mode on the GPU.

    Well, you mentioned that you were overclocking and your system was freezing up. It can be anything from an unstable overclock to a corrupted OS.

    Chino ,that all sounds well and good. However there is nothing else wrong in the system. All other 980's Worked fine including Strix. System is stable with all other cards. OS fine Windows Pro 64 bit. Have been into computers and gaming for 35 yrs. Custom building for the last 10 yrs. Used a lot of ASUS products and currently using a Swift monitor which by the way is great. Let's face it there are some issues with this card. Amazon has stopped shipping for the last 3 days because of customer complaints. Let's get on with the show.

    The devil is in the details.

    I think you're over exaggerating just a little with the customer complaints on Amazon. Out of the 6 buyers, you were the only one who gave 1 star.
