Independently Programmable On-board Pin Header for RGBW/UV LED Strips
Not bright enough? You can install standard 12V external RGB, RGBW or RGB/UV light strips on the RGBW pin header and control its colour from the RGB Fusion software. Using a RGBW light strip with a dedicated white LED, users will experience brighter and more vibrant shades of colours.
When using RGB/UV LED strips, users can give their systems a fluorescent glow with the use of UV reactive liquid, neon braided cables, and acrylic paint for a wicked-looking gaming PC.
No need to worry when choosing light strips as AORUS motherboards support a wide variety of RGBW/-UV light strips on the market thanks to the RGB Fusion software that allows users to redefine the pin location for the R/G/B Signal.
Different light strips sometimes have different RGB pin definitions, RGB Fusion software can relocate each pin location for the best compatibility.
RGB Fusion (Advanced mode)
With the all new RGB Fusion software, users have access to different preset LED lighting configurations with choice of colours. You can even set the LEDs to synchronize with your favourite music or have them change colours to indicate the CPU temperature. For true lighting experts there is an Advanced Mode, which can be fully customized by individual area with its own effects and colour transitions, along with specific duration and transition times. Along with specific duration and transition times. Along with specific duration and transition times.
