Why? If i get ssues i just reset bios and it will be lit again.

But so far, its a no on thus being possible i guess.

Same thing happens to me on my MSI X99A Godlike gaming board. Must be a cup compatibility issue with specific chipsets as same cpu on a X99S board was flawless in posting up nonstop.

I'm in agreement with the others. Doesn't make any sense to want this feature disabled. As already mentioned how would you know why you were receiving no POST, especially difficult with overclocking. Anything you do to to disable or deface the QCODE display will also likely result in voiding the warranty.

I don't know why anyone hasn't suggested this before but...

Just stick electrical tape over the lights you don't want to see. Simple, easy, and will not void your warranty. That's what I do with the annoying LEDs on my power adapters, etc. biggrin.gif

I'll bet Slinky wouldn't cover any LEDs. wink.gif

Did you smoke a pound of weed before coming up with that comment?

Seriously, what do you do when you overclock one step to far? To you pray to god or to do press the CMOS button?

If the bios had a feature called "LEDs on motherboard ON or OFF" and i set it to off, and if GPU went and died, take a guess at what button i would press that would zero my bios settings and once more allow me to read from the post code display...

How did anyone get void warrenty from what i wrote?, Did everyone misunderstand me or just not really read any of what i have written.

I just swapped from the _CHEAPEST_ MSI X99S Sli motherboard to the Asus X99 Deluxe.

Sure the MSI board did not have post codes showing, but it does have a few buttons all over the board that at lit with LED's, within the MSI bios is a setting where you press, turn off led lights, and WHAM! all the red and green and blue lights are gone, and my black and white build looks great in the dark.

The X99 Deluxe has has a power button and restart button, lit with green and red led, next to that, you find the post code display. I have had boards with these before, but believe it or not they never bugged me, now to ya'll want to guess what that is?

It'll take too long to wait, so imma just tell you. They didnt read AA once the system was posted, they turned off!

Now, the Asus board cost more than double the price of the MSI, and yet its missing such a tiny feature, turning off the led lights, i understand the greatness behind the LED for defective hardware, they rock, but notice how they arnt on all the time!

Now, i am being fairly sarcastic about all this, cos i find your understand of what my goal is to be over blown.

I want a feature on the motherboard or in the bios to turn off those fing lights, at no point anywhere did i ever suggest or even hint that i was going to rip out my soldering iron and remove the parts from the motherbard, that would be dumber than anything i could think off.

I hope by now we are reaching an understanding??

Short version, turns out Asus dont allow this, and i'll have to deal with it, paying more than double, doesnt get you what you want, is what i can take away from this. Luckly, i paid less then half of the MSI board for my deluxe, which is the only reason i have it.

At least you came up with a solution, thats half decent, but having spent 5 months building a system and doing all the wires and solid tube watercooling, "taping up" is just a cheap joke on an otherwise insanly price heavy build.

they also make liquid electrical tap. im sure with patience and time you could permanently cover up any leds you dont want.
