    Alternative to Armoury Crate?

    So sick of the bloatware, broken software known as Armoury Crate. Does anyone know of an alternative that doesn't install WAY too many services and other garbage on your system, oh, and actually works? My entire system and peripherals are ROG, Monitor, mouse, keyboard, etc. I have been ROG since it started, but this will be my last Asus build due to their software. Any alternative to AC, or if anyone knows if software in development that I could follow, please let me know.

    I hear ya, pretty sure this is my last asus build as-well.
    changed my peripherals to logitech, its not perfect but its much better than asus.
    i hate that a lot of features are "locked" behind really lame software - i have asus ryujin 360 and i cant control the fan curve nor the smaller fan .
    annoying.

    Corsair products. Get rid of ASUS peripherals. There are plugins to control ASUS MOBOs and GPUS, just wont control addressable headers on MOBO. Aura and Crate have never worked from day one. Great concept, pi$$ poor execution.

    Just need to download lighting service 1.07.79 and install it but dont launch it. If I que is up and running shut it down first. All you need is the lighting service running in services. Then the Ique plug in will take care of the rest. Works perfectly. I currently have mine set to static all whie. I hate the default unicorn vomit.
    Tossed my core keyboard that never synched correctly as well as spatha mouse and bought corsair K100 and Dark core pro RGB mouse that actually last on battery wireless for several days or you can use USB. Way better. Mouse pads etc all corsair and all RGB work and synch perfectly.

    Last Asus Build

    This is my last Asus build as well. I can't deal with the dysfunctional armoury crate.

    Can't control my RYUJIN fan. So it's annoyingly loud. Asus support hasn't been useful at all.

    I haven't been able to install Armoury Crate properly since I upgraded to resizeable bar with my 3090 FE and motherboard. (And it barely worked before)

    In all honestly, the Ryujin 360 is a ridiculously underrated AIO simply because the hardware is first rate. The fact that it has three first rate fans alone makes it better than most other AIOs. Second, it has a fan that moves air at the socket and near the VRM etc, which makes it a step above all other AIOs.

    What you need to do (seriously) to get the fan speeds right is this:

    1. Uninstall all Asus bloatware like Armoury Crate, Aura, Live Dash, etc.
    2. Go to Windows Settings and then Update & Security and go to Recovery. Then go to Reset the PC and proceed to reinstall Windows after backing up what may be removed.
    3. Go into the Bios under "Monitor" and set up your fans to your liking.

    It is easy as pie. I have two Ryujins in two computers and they work like a charm. I have removed all Asus bloatware in three Asus computers following the above and have never been happier long running.

    Nobody needs any of the Asus bloatware garbage like Armoury Crate, Aura, Live Dash and the rest of that garbage (nor any substitutes). All of it may work well for a few months but over time it always becomes like a cancer to your system. The only sound way to get rid of it once and for all is by a reinstall of Windows as recommended above (and of course NEVER installing or reinstalling any Asus bloatware again).

    Good luck to all.
