Heya!

So I just build got done building my first PC.
  • AMD ryen 7 3700x
  • MSI RTX 2060 SUPER
  • MSI X470 GAMING PLUS MAX
  • G.SKILL 16 GB RAM
I have XMP enabled in the BIOS and everything is working fine! But above RAM the A2 and B2 (where I have my sticks installed) slot 2 red LED are on. Is this just an identification that those RAM slots are being used or is it a bad thing?

Thanks!

Hi Jaaprikm.

"Those just look like indicator LEDs. They come on when the slots are populated. Can't change the color unfortunately but you might be able to disable them in the MSI Gaming app, see if disabling MB Function LEDs is an option available to you. Nothing to worry about though, as far as potentially defective parts."

"I have the same lights on my MSI X470 Gaming Plus, i wish i can find a way to turn off these lights, i've searched in the bios and on all msi apps on windows, but i cant find how to disable them"

Seems like they are just indicator LEDs. You don't have to worry anymore :)
