HI Cyrano, I have a 5DMK3, and you can set up the AF points to light up red, page no. 103

of the manual gives you very easy instructions on how it is done. I should imaging the 1DX would be same. hope that helps you.

Thanks, but I think this applies only to One Shot AF mode. The issue here concerns AF display during AI Servo. The 5D mark III is like the 1DX prior to the new 1DX firmware: in AI Servo mode, the AF point is never illuminated.

It's not clear whether Canon will offer a firmware update for the 5D3 similar to that for the 1DX: see http://www.canonrumors.com/2012/11/canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-blinking-red-af-point-information/
