    Default Z87 Fatality Motherboard Red LED light for Bios - Standard or bad?

    Good Evening Guys

    Just a simple question that has been bothering me. (it may be a stupid one, sorry if I amuse you guys). There is a RED LED light staying on and it is labeled "Bios A Led". Is this fine? does it mean that Bios A is being used instead of Bios B? I am unsure because usually red for technology indicates something is wrong. Thanks for the time to respond guys

    You haven't said if you are using the Killer or Professional version of your board.

    In the manual for the Killer, it states that there are 2 LED indicators, Bios A Led and Bios B Led. The lit up LED indicates which BIOS you are using. The colour isn't mentioned.
    If your computer is booting up, etc, just great, then the BIOS is working, the Red LED will just be an indicator and the colour shouldn't make a difference.

    I noticed in several reviews they rave about the red colour scheme and red accents for the Z87 Fatal1ty Professional MB. Maybe the red LED is in keeping with that??!!
