    FAQ #1.
    It's free and works with any brand of graphics hardware.

    So by having an ROG Graphics card do I gain anything other than matching name and color?

    Getting it anyways :)

    My computer froze just moments after closing it o_O No Bsod or anything just, froze.

    And the font colors make it hard for me to read/focus on the text. Just sayin..

    Yup, I can confirm that every time after closing it my Computer will just freeze. Second time I've had to do a hard reboot.

    Why is it every ROG related software I have used from my Asus AI Tweaker 2 to GPU-z gives me some sort of crash or freeze issue...

    It's GPU-Z with a different skin. I have no idea why it would make your computer crash.

    Me... Either... :confused:

    The normal 5.3 didn't do that.

    Going back to it now.

    Maybe cause I have an ROG card lol?

    One odd hunch!

    To close the ROG version I have to hit the Close Button at the bottom versus just hitting the X on the top right of the window. Maybe? Just maybe it has something to do with that?

    I'm going to have to pass on this.

    With the exception of [H], the Red & Black theme makes my eyes bleed.

    That's why I didn't get the Maximus IV Extreme.

    Awesome! ROG skin is actually easier for my eye. Leaving this as an optional skin for future version would be nice.:)
