Default MSI GeForce GTX 460 Fermi Hawk OC 780MHZ 1GB GDDR5

HI guys,
recently i got this video and i find out that there are 4 red led light at the back of the video are flashing.
Is it indicating any problem? or it's just normal?

Looked on the website and they don't say anything about it. But if it is like a motherboard....all the lights on is a good thing.

Most time LEDs these days on a motherboard indicate things like voltage, frequencies ect..

On your card I would guess it refers to frequencies, volatges for overclocking purposes. Usually green is good, yellow/orange ok and red is bad, meaning the card is too high or hot. Just a guess.

here is from a review...

"MSI is using the uP 6213 for their design which seems to have the functionality required to control the three voltages MSI is offering. On the left of the voltage regulator you find a pair of DIP switches that let you optimize the PWM frequency. Near the bottom edge of the PCB MSI has placed six LEDs that show a bar graph of the current draw of the card (amps, representing GPU load)."

Interesting, I don't think I have ever heard of something similar.
