    Angry [AURA] Why addressable fans cannot be properly controlled??

    I just purchased 7 ARGB fans that are "Aura Sync Certificated", expecting to be able to control their LEDS the same way I can control my GSKILL RAMS led areas (5 different regions per ram stick).

    Yet, when open AURA Sync and choose the Static (or any other type that allows configuring "By areas"), the fans are listed only as "ADD-strip-1", meaning they work as a normal RGB fan would work, I can only set one color for all 24 addressable LEDS the fans have.

    If I go to Rainbow Mode or any other color cycle mode, they work as an addressable led should work, (the colors cycle on the entire fan area), so clearly AURA is seeing the 24 addressable leds they have, but for some goddam reason they cannot be individually selected when on "By Areas" mode??

    Seriously?

    Anyone know a workaround for this nonsense?

    So, no support whatsoever?

    Nice, thanks Asus.

    Keep in mind this is an ASUS supported user forum. not ASUS support.

    Ive not now nor have I ever been a fan of AURA. Tried every single release since its inception. I use Ique.

    I understand this an Asus user forum. Still they post official topics here asking for feedback/ issues, so they should do a better job supporting us considering ROG stuff is not exactly cheap.

    Anyway, back to my topic, after some deep research I found out that the LightService /Aura SDK does provide proper addressable LED's data for an A-RGB device connected on the motherboard - I was able to access it using a third part software that reads Aura data and with some tweaking even able to configure almost each led separately.

    So it's an Asus CHOICE to not provide any way to proper configure each separated ARGB LED on the Aura Software.

    Why I'm not surprised that a "premium" brand provides an awful service?

    Guess this will be my last Asus product.

    I didn't proper fix because Aura SDK still doesn't address my fans leds correctly (so instead of 24 leds Aura is reporting 16 and then 8 cross with another 8). So following Cooler Master replies I ordered their small A-RGB controller to use MasterPlus+ software. I don't care if I need to use 2 softwares.

    But you can try the hack as it might work for yourself.

    Basically you will use a third part software (JackNet RGB Sync) and corsair iCUE (even if you don't have a Corsair iCUE device, just open iCue settings and disable "show only connected devices" so you can configure a dumy/demo device, works the same.

    Here's the full guide: https://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=180890

    Hope it works for you.
