    Default DES = weird power led behaviour?

    Hi folks,

    I got a GA-EP45-DS3L (BIOS F8) with an E8400 on it.

    When I turn on the phase LEDs using the Energy Saver utility, the message/power/sleep-LED (in the front of the PC) keeps going on for ~ 4 sec. and then ~ 4 sec. off.
    When I disable the phase LEDs, the power LED remains on continuously (normal behaviour).

    Why is this?

    I think it's a (weird) feature of the DES, to show that the energy saving is on.
    I have a GA-EP45-DS3R and got the exact same behavior.

    Yes it likely also is, you can uninstall the DES software which you should anyway if you are overclocking

    @Lsdmeasap: It's about the power LED, not the HDD LED.

    @amirn: Thanks for confirming! I think they should documentate this feature for those wondering why.
