Is my GPU dead?

BenChurchill
 Share

I have a EVGA GTX 1080 SC and the logo LED on the side of it flickers on and off, the card performs well and I haven't had any issues with crashes or anything but I'm worried there could be something wrong with the card. Has anyone had this issue or know if this is normal behavior? 

 

PC Specs:

CPU: i7 6700K 

MB: Gigabyte Motherboard Micro ATX DDR4 LGA 1151 GA-B150M-D3H-GSM

PSU : CORSAIR CSM Series, CS550M

*Doctor walks into the room*

Owner : "panics" doctor give me the news....

Doctor : Sir, you want the good news or the bad news first? 

Owner : The good news first please 

Doctor : Your child is fine, the bad news is maybe you got a faulty led.

Thanks for the replies guys, I was pretty sure it's just faulty LEDs and I don't really mind. It's the lower end card so the LEDs aren't controllable I just thought maybe there was something funky going on with the power delivery or something. Just wanted to see if anyone had a situation where their LEDs went out then 3 months later the card died.

If you're afraid the card may die you could always RMA it
