Colours

So why have we been so excited to reach this page? Just look at it. How often have you been frustrated at the difficulty and expense of changing the lighting in your system? This eliminates all those issues. You can change colours at the drop of a hat. See an amazing lighting combination at a show? Boom, one click and that colour scheme is yours. Or, like some of our members, want a colour that is nearly impossible to obtain *coughwhitecough*? Sorted.

The only thing that somewhat puts a damper on things is the bright green GeForce GTX logo in our test system. If only someone would come up with a graphics card that supported this RGB ethos....

Lighting Control Software

We mentioned above how easy it is to change the lighting in your system using the ASUS AURA, and this minimalist piece of software is the way that you do so. Pick what you want to change on the left, select how it performs on the right. Couldn't be simpler.

I already have the remote and everything. (I recently set up my room to have RGB LEDs behind the desks)

I need my PC to match.

HI

Dammit! Now I want to make the TTL white gold rig. VIII Formula in my H440 that's just sitting in the closet. I have not had a reason to go to Z170 yet, however this one is going to be a $400 hole in my pocket ($399 pre order on newegg)

Epic review Tom. Your excitement is palpable for good reason.
