    Corsair RGB fans, RAM and Asus Aura

    I'm starting my R6E build in a few days. Here's a list of what I'm planning to use:
    Case: Thermaltake View 71TG
    MB: Asus Rampage VI Extreme
    CPU: Intel i9 7900X
    RAM: Corsair Vengence RGB 3600 (8X8) 64 GB (on R6E QVL)
    GPU: Asus Strix GTX 1080Ti (2X), Asus HB bridge for SLI
    CPU cooling: EK R6E monoblock
    GPU cooling: Phanteks Glacier water blocks
    CPU radiator: Alphacool 420 X 45 triple 140
    Fans: 3 X 140 Corsair LL140 RGB for CPU radiator
    GPU radiator: Alphacool 360 X 45 triple 120
    Fans: 3 X 120 Corsair LL120 RGB
    Reservoir/pump: Enermax Neocharger RGB 300ml
    Hard tubing: 16mm/12mm
    Fittings: Thermaltake RGB
    PSU: EVGA Supernova 1300 G2

    I plan to run the Corsair RGB from their controllers and link software, the Thermaltake fittings from their controller, the R6E and the pump/reservoir from the MB Asus aura software. Should I order a large bottle of aspirin, or do you think this will work?

    Might have issues running multiple RGB control utilities.

    Yeah while things may all light up they may not play well together. Thermaltake controller for the Fittings, Corsair hub for the fans, Aura MB ect.

    I anticipate I may have to run a segment or two in static mode as the special effects likely won't be consistent between the various brands. My best guess is the fans may display the fancy effects from the Corsair link, but I'll have to run everything else static. I'd be ok with that. I'm due to win the lottery, so who knows, maybe I'll get lucky. Or....Aura and Link will fight like cats and dogs.

    I have several RGB systems "working together" including Aura and Corsair Link (and CAM when I need to change a HUE + setting but not running at all). All I can say is give it a try. The reality of things is we really don't have much choice. At a minimum you will probably need to use a least two different systems to get the full control over the components you have. Corsair and NZXT seem to have the overall most comprehensive RGB systems for Fan's , cooling, etc. but don't control motherboard RGB systems or lights. Board manufacturers have certain memory they support and some that they do not. Everyone is doing there own thing and not communicating it appears or forming partnerships with only certain manufacturers. In the end it's the consumer who lose in this environment.

    I started with the HUE systems and like the effects they have. The CAM software I only need to run if I need to make changes to the lights or after a complete power down of the system. Then the pretty fans from Corsair drew my attention so I decided to add these when I rebuilt my x299 system. That required the purchase of a Corsair Commander Pro and the use of LINK to control them.

    So currently, I have AURA controlling RGB on my RE6 and Gskill memory, Corsair link controlling the RGB of my HD fans from them and NZXT Hue + controlling the lighting strips. Is it perfect? no. Is it ripe for problems? Probably. Does it work as is for me? Yes. I honestly don't see any issues currently but that could all change with a new version of software or a change in a setting. I was thinking of retiring the HUE + or moving it to a different build and go with Corsair on the lighting strips but their software and illumination choices are limited. I could also use AURA and AURA compatible lighting strips but again the lighting options are limited.

    So there ya have it. The state of RGB goodness is messy. I honestly think if there was some cooperation between some of these manufacturers it would really help. Perhaps there is but it is not apparent to those buying the goods.

    This will probably be the best option.

    I actually have a NZXT H700i case with "Smart" device
    Maximus X Formula
    i7-8700K
    4x Corsair Vengeance RGB
    6x Corsair HD120 fans
    Corsair H150i Pro cooler
    NZXT G12 and Fractal Design S36 to cool my GTX1080ti
    Corsair K95 and Logitech G502

    I connect all 6 fans to the Corsair fan hub, and instead of using their controller, wire it to the ARGB header on the MoBo
    The Smart Device only runs 2 ARGB strip from CAM, but does control fan speeds for all 6 fans.
    I have the Fractal Design pump and the G12 fan run from the Mobo
    I have the H150i Pro control connected to the CPU fan for monitoring but it runs its own pump control via USB and iCue.
    USB controls the Smart device with CAM.

    I forgot the NZXT AER RGB140 that is a boost fan on the case back for when the CPU gets hot.

    All this usually runs aroud 4.3-5.1 Ghz with temps for the CPU in the Low 50's and the GPU around 47

    It took a couple hours to get all the RGB to play together, but Corsair links to Aura pretty well.

    AURA does have issue running with iCUE most of the time AURA will just crap out trying to start, but seeing you have a Strix you should be fine for some reason AURA started working fine for me once i move to a strix card mite have something to do with the RGB support.

    Well as you can see by my post, my RGB crapped out.
    Looks like it was iCue or Link doing it, so after a reinstall of my OS, I am just using Aura now and my RGBness is all back and working

    I had one of my four pin headers on the board crap out and lost all Blue, red and green work fine. Right now bought a four pin to four separate outlet headers and am using that right now. Didn't want to RMA and go through all that hassle over one pin.
