HWiNFO64 disables the RGB leds on my RTX 3080 Gaming X trio when its launched.

Posted this one reddit but also decided to post here, hoping someone from the support team would see it.

original post here
https://www.reddit.com/r/MSI_Gaming/comments/j30qir Where I explained that my RTX 3080's RGBs would randomly shut off.

They would always come back on after a cold boot. So at one moment when I had booted up the system, and clicked on launching HWiNFO (sensors only) I saw the lights turn off again at the same instant the application launched. Just to be sure I turned off the system and tried to replicate the same thing and yep, the lights turned off immediately.

Not sure, if the HWiNFO team is aware of this, However just wanted to put this out there in case anyone was encountering the same problems. For the record I also have a 2080 Super Gaming X trio and it would never do this despite running HWiNFO to monitor hardware stats. Pretty interesting occurrence.
