So i have an MSI Gaming X Trio GTX 1080 Ti card and Asus ROG STRIX Z370-F GAMING Intel Motherboard, MSI Card comes with Msi Mystic Light and the asus board comes with Asus Aura Sync, i know using 2 different software's to controls RGB's will be bad and read some RGB's going dead cause of using 2 different software's (at least the ram RGB's died in someone's case). I am scared and dont want to kill off my RGB's as this is a brand new system and it really costed me a lot of money and effort. I want to keep it simple and just want to use the asus aura sync as i also use it control my ram RGB's, so my question is will there be any problems/complications in using asus aura to control the MSI GPU? or should i use the MSI mystic light for the GPU ? wont they conflict ? Please help

Aura won't control the lights on the MSi card. You have to use Mystic Light. Having both installed won't cause any issues at all. I've got two MSi 1080's on an Asus board.

Hi. Sorry for bringing up an old thread. But I want to ask since I also am using asus board with msi gpu. Thing is, before I installed dragon center and mystic light for the gpu, aura was working just fine. But after installing msi's, aura service couldnt get available, unabling aura and livedash to run. So, may I know how you configure these softwares to be able to run along together? Oh and I already untick the option to let mystic light overwrite other third party rgb software but still it didnt work.

OpenRGB is a great alternative, never personally got to use it and today I am running a Gigabyte Z590 Vision G and a MSI GeForce RTX 3090 VENTUS 3X OC.

But I can manage with just Gigabyte's solution because my RTX 3090 doesn't have RGB but I still wish it was my RTX 3090 was the Gigabyte Vision model so it will match my colour scheme maybe one day it will get to match :cry:
