    Recommendations on RGB Strips for RGB Headers on Hero Alpha?

    Hey everyone. First post here....

    I've never actually bought RGB strips before and I was wondering if anyone would mind recommending some strips for this motherboard specifically. I would like to ensure that they are no cheapo lights.... There are a ton on Newegg and I was just looking for a bit of help on this particular issue. Silly question I know... but I appreciate your help in advance!

    -Chris

    Hi MeisterBroseidon

    Here's a 5050 RGB strip with 4-pin RGB connector and can select a white or black finish, for maximum brightness keep it under 2m (6 foot).

    I think Phanteks make some some LED Strip 1m and 2m long, and RGB LED adapter ASUS AURA Ready.
    You can check on their site...

    Maybe someone know some better options but these look OK to me if someone have new ASUS ROG motherboard.
    This will fit and on Rampage V 10TH Edition.

    If you do not like waiting and have a nearby Lowes go there they have a spot for accent lighting with LED strips. Specifically this kit http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/1722306...&ul_noapp=true

    I checked the Lowes website and it is not listed but I was shocked to see they keep a supply of it. It should be just a little over 30 bucks but it comes with two 2ft lengths and works just fine with my Alpha board! Check the packaging before buying because I got a couple kits for the boys bedrooms in general and one box was missing the remote.
