    Problem with RGB lighting

    Hi all,

    So I am proud to own an Asus ROG STRIX Z390-F GAMING motherboard with all the the lovely RGB options. I am using a Sharkoon ELITE SHARK CA200M case, which has an RGB compatible fan at the back and 2 beautiful "matte" rgb stripes at the front.

    I am experiencing a problem however.

    Whenever I boot up my pc, the color scheme on the RGB lighting is different. I boot up my pc, it starts the rgb in the lovely colors, but when I come to my login screen, it changes the color scheme to something I do not want. I don't know how to get it work like I want. I have been experiencing this problem for a short while now, not since I bought my pc.

    I have attached this Youtube link: https://youtu.be/BQAYTTzz_bA

    Here you can see what happens when it starts up and when I get to the login screen.

    What I want, is the beautiful rainbow-like stuff happening at the beginning, not the slow dual-color cycle that keeps happening. Asus AURA Sync doesn't seem to fix my problem.

    Thanks in advance everyone!

    No, it is set to private.
    I have the same board. Did you try out the effects in Aura sync which is the one you want to have? I asume it is rainbow without watching your video. Normally it should help if you simply hit that triangle symbol in the Armoury Crate software and select rainbow then?

    Ah yea seems you would need to uninstall aura sync and switch to the Armoury Crate instead to have the things i talked about even. This has sort of integrated Aura Sync, not the old fashioned it seems. I don't get it properly too. But as far as i understand Armoury Crate is supposed to sort of superseed the old fashioned Aura Sync standalone? Or at least it should be much more recent as it receives frequent updates as far as i can see.

    I adjusted the video! You can watch it now.

    I will download Armory Crate and try it out. Thank you.

    So turned out I already had Armoury Crate. I used it and the effect is now better, but still different from when I boot up my pc.

    As it's now, when idling, it has the better rainbow effect, but it seems like the lights are much wider then when it's booting up. It's almost like when booting up, there are less lights at a time displaying a single color, so the rainbow effect is much more colours at the same time and seem more intense.

    Do you understand what I mean? So it's better now, but it needs to get even better.

    Isnt it "rainbow" with 1 tick more speed? Im not quite sure.... do you have an additional RGB controller connected? I see what you mean, and yea i feel like i do not have the exact same effect automatically but when i select rainbow effect and make and add 1 tick of speed to it, it looks quite similar.... i mean when you add a little bit speed it looks a bit like a wave would go through the rainbow effect. Maybe switching the color patterns brings you closer to it? The settings for the rainbow effect should pop up on the right hand side once you selected it.

    Theres like ... idk 256 colors (lol)?, red to black, blue to red, yellow to red, yellow blue yellow, .... etc... thats probably sort of default startup RGB fire.... ?

    I attached a screenshot, try that. Sorry my UI is in german language but you can just click rainbow, put the slider there and set the dropdown menu's contained color pattern as i do. That close enough?

    Ofcourse at some point the software seems to take over RGB control after startup process of the computer.

    PS.: lol i just figured the Aura creator isnt working at all for me. When i add a sequence to a layer and hit play, the lights shut. And funny enough the software is not excluded from the geforce expirience overlay. And the forums locale seems messed. What does "Miniatura de Adjuntos" mean?
