    I have two of these cards and have sent one away to have this fixed. They sent me a new card and the other one had the same thing happen to it a month later... I just gave up on them, disabled the onboard RGB and installed a LED strip to light my build...

    ASUS ROG RGB is garbage. My Hero VI motherboard RGB colours don't even match anymore either. The IO shows two different shades or any colour I pick... and so does one of the cards.....

    It's awesome that there is a solution, but I must ask the question. My GPU is not that old, why should I be replacing them?, and does that mean that other RGB components are going to go the same way?

    Same issue here with my 1070 Strix. The lighting has been extremely dim on the side and bottom for some time, until I found this thread and bought a 4mm fiber optic side glow cable to replace it myself.

    I'll use the chance to also replace the thermal paste on the GPU and CPU, and see if I can get a few degrees lower.

    Pictures below:
    - My 1070 lighting as it was originally 3 years ago.
    - The super dim lighting as it is today.
    - The fiber optic cable I bought (1 meter long).

    I'll post some pictures of the process and results once I get to do it, if anyone is interested.

    So here is the process of replacing the side glow tubes from my GTX 1070 Strix. Should be similar for other cards. This video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GUySjP7-gI) that someone posted a few pages back was very helpful for knowing how to disassemble it. A lot of it is unnecessary for the purpose of replacing these tubes, but it's good to know.

    So, to start, take off the 3 screws next to the fans, and the 3 screws on the side that goes closer to the motherboard, then the cover comes right off. You may want to disconnect the black cables to fully separate it and move it more freely. Otherwise, as I did, just be careful and don't pull too much.

    Carefully, use a flat screwdriver or something to lever the side glow tubes out from its enclosing. And I repeat, carefully, or you may break them. I had to take a broken piece out with tweezers.

    Now, the original tubes are roughly 27 cm long. So just cut two pieces from the new one with scissors or a sharp knife. Here's a side by side comparison of the old and new tubes, see how white they got.

    Then, insert the new side glow tubes, you may need to push a bit to make sure they clip into place. Finally, put the fan cover back and all the 6 screws, install the card into your computer and hope for the best!

    As someone else said, the new light colors are a little off to me too, but it doesn't bother me much. At least it's fully glowing again in all its glory

    And the whole process is like 5-10 minutes, definitely not worth it to send your card to Asus.
