AORUS STYLE RGB Fusion with Digital LEDs Support With AORUS Motherboards, RGB Fusion is even better with Digital LEDs.* RGB Fusion offers users the option to control onboard RGB and external RGBW / Digital LED light strips for their PC. Already feature filled with colors and patterns, RGB Fusion on AORUS Motherboards are now upgraded with Digital LED support. With external digital LED strips*, where each LED is digitally addressable, users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations. AORUS Gaming Motherboards will support either 5v or 12v digital LED lighting strips and up to 300 LED lights. RGB Fusion with Digital LEDs comes with 9 new patterns and various speed settings with more to come. Multi-Zone Light Show Design Now offering more LED customizations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle. With full RGB support and a redesigned RGB Fusion application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard. Supports RGBW & UV Light Strips Independently Programmable Onboard Pin Header for RGBW/UV LED Strips Not bright enough? You can install standard 12V external RGB, RGBW or RGB/UV light strips on the RGBW pin header and control its color from the RGB Fusion software. Using a RGBW light strip with a dedicated white LED, users will experience brighter and more vibrant shades of colors. RGBW Pin Header Support True White and RGB/UV LED Strips RGB/UV Color RGB/UV light strips can illuminate your PC with a fluorescent glow. With UV reactive cables, paint or liquid your PC can radiate with a luminous glow. True White Color RGBW light strips can produce a pure white color instead of mixing R/G/B to produce an inaccurate white. Richer Color With dedicated white LEDs, light strips can produce a richer and brighter color on the color scale. RGB Calibration Different light strips sometimes have different RGB pin definitions, RGB Fusion software can relocate each pin location for the best compatibility.
