Since you are now working on the App do you think you can enable RGB Memory Support to it?
Its all controlled together and not a separate entity when using Armoury Crate

I don’t now exactly how that is linked to Aura. But in my experience from the Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB, RAM RGB is controlled through the SMBus, which is not that easy to access on MacOS… and would be very dependent on each type of RAM.

I had to switch out my Corsair RAM for lower profile ones to make room for the reservoir when I put in my custom loop. Therefore I have no way to test even if I had any idea how to implement it.

I'd suspect it's through the SMBus too. I'd say see how liquidctl does it but they state DRAM control is only available via Linux, https://github.com/liquidctl/liquidctl/blob/main/docs/ddr4-guide.md

I’m not using Corsair ram I’m using Kingston memory and it uses Asus software to control it. (No plug-ins or additional software involved)
besicly whatever I set the board as the memory follows.

From what I can tell all RGB RAM uses the SMBus / SPD EEPROM to communicate with software.

Good morning guys,

Aureal works only with Asus Mobo or can I check the LEDs even gigabyte cards?

I wanted to fix the PC's LEDs because it became a Christmas tree ... especially the RAM (crucial ballistix) is very annoying.

How can I do?

Aureal is for ASUS motherboards only.

Guys I tried to install liquidctl but I don't understand how to do it, do I have to open a dedicated 3d?

Getting a bit off topic now but you can install liquidctl with brew.

Great touch with 0.9.0 being available in the menu bar but you have no option now of closing the program once it’s running.
It would be great if you could add a right click exit option to the menu icon buddy. :)
