Brand new MSI 3080 Gaming X Trio RGB question

Oct 23, 2020
Hi all,
I just received my 3080 gaming x trio today. Installed it into my Lian Li PC-O11D and it looks beautiful.

I used DDU and uninstalled my old gtx 1070 drivers and then did a clean install from GeForce Experience for a new graphics card.

Everythings working great. It runs SO COOL (53⁰C Max in Star Wars Squadrons and 58⁰C max in timespy!)

So I played alittle bit of Squadrons and when I was done I looked over and noticed the RGB lighting was out. I closed my game and went back to desktop to download MSI Dragon Center.

In the middle of Installing all the Mystic Lighting packages from the Dragon Center launcher my rgbs randomly came back on.

Is this signifying some sort of issue? I just built this PC and I am soo excited for this card. Getting it was pure luck and happened to be on my top 3 list so I'm really worried something is already wrong with it.

It worked for awhile and went out for maybe 5 minutes before randomly coming back on. I was also able to successfully change the RGB to static purple from default it's still working but I've never seen rgb randomly go out like that.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

(fwiw about 15 seconds after my 3080 rgb went out, my trident z royal ram sticks defaulted from my purple colors profile back to default rainbow... So my hope is either a fluke or just some weird interference with an app? I do have HWmonitor64 installed)
