    Aura API/SDK?

    Ive been wondering, is there an API or SDK for aura control?
    I want to tie it into Aurora, which already handles all my other RGB peripherals.

    I think ive sorted it out now, the solution was painfully obvious..

    What I did was lift the butt end of the card a little until the little hook on the PCB caught onto the latch thats on the PCIe...

    The armor seems to be the problem since 2 different brands of GPU fail to sit flush, theres no two ways about that.
    And a motherboard failing to fit a nvidia reference design card is unacceptable....

    Theres no way the shroud could come down enough to seat the card properly.
    The gap that you think you are seeing, is so narrow I cant even get a fingernail under it.

    Oh for the love of... the shroud is ON the motherboard. Just trust me on that, ok?
    There is no way this thing can go any lower, not unless I take a hacksaw to it, which I dont want.

    I am not gonna pay 350 to have a shrouded motherboard, only to tear the whole thing apart just to make it gain basic function, simple as that. If this stupid thing is so poorly designed it cant even...

    In the last pics im only using the second slot for easier pictures, its doing the same on slot 1.
    And its most definitely hitting the motherboard, heres a picture of it sitting on its box with a...

    I dont want to get rid of the shroud, thats kinda the whole reason I wanted this motherboard.

    Yeah its just the picture, even with the board just sitting on the box the cards wont go in properly....

    I put the motherboard on its box so nothing could possibly impede the videocard from seating properly. Turns out that yes, the shroud IS blocking the videocards.. Looking from the bottom up at the...

    I tried installing a different videocard and also tried using a different PCIe slot.

    Aura compatible with Thermaltake Riing?

    I was wondering if I can somehow sync up the thermaltake Riing fans with Aura.
    Or if not, are there any other fans that can?
