Gigabyte 2080 OC RGB problems

So I thought I'd give the Gigabyte one more try before I return it due to fan issues (fans revving at start, sounding like a dishwasher. Search gigabyte forums for this well known issue). But I found a NEW problem. Not only would the LED on the gigabyte GPU not light up, but neither would the RGB header that's connected to my motherboard. Reinstalled my previous GPU and no prob. Started PC w/o a GPU - worked like a charm.

1) Yes, I performed a CLEAN reinstall of drivers and removed old ones (DDU is great)

2) I attempted to mess with the arock z370 RGB settings with no results

3) Used the gigabytes trashy software to attempt to mess with RGB.

Any ideas? Seems like gigabyte is well known for awful software, so I may return this GPU which is too bad because it's quiet overall. Something I'm looking for.

No one has had this happen? Or a fix? I'd like to keep the GPU but if a 750 card is giving me this much trouble i'm ready to return.
