    Question XI Hero RGB lighting very dim.

    Just finished building a new machine with an XI Hero. The Aura lighting particularly on the I/O cover is so dim I can be barely see it. Pretty disappointed about this. Is my lighting faulty? Can it be easily remedied?

    The lighting on XI boards are poor to say the least. So ,no it's not a fault as my board is the same . My IX Hero lights up the case cos they are a hell of a lot brighter.

    I don't understand how the LED's can be that weak... Well this is disappointing. If I could actually see the design properly lit up it would be a nice feature. The promo images show a bright boldly lit design...
