New 3060 GPU - Defective or Working Properly?

Hi there.
I've just built a new desktop pc, but I don't think the GPU is working correctly. I'm using the ASUS RTX 3060 TUF 12GB V2 graphics card with a ASUS TUF Z690-PLUS WIFI D4 motherboard. To give you some backstory.

The GPU is outputting video, but I can't find the component listed in my bios settings. The RGB components on the GPU also don't light up.
When I first installed windows 10 the GPU wasn't showing in the task manager until the drivers automatically updated a few minutes latter.
I've used ASUS Aurora Sync to try get the GPU RGB working, it can see the component but it never lights up.
I've also updated my motherboard bios to the latest version, but to no avail.

Any general thoughts on how to fix this card?
Otherwise I'm thinking of returning it.

~Thanks in advance.

If this is your card:


It doesn't appear to have RGB.

I think it was trying to hit a price point and that is why that feature is missing.
