    BUT ! RGB fusion 2.0 still don't work on my + 1 year old HEDT threadripper board,,,,, so pardon my french but i have 0 trust in that.

    Actually as it is now having tried the latest version a few weeks ago i have lost control over my RAM, which in leu of better i have been controlling with the software from the RAM maker ( geil )
    But now its just gay RGB rainbow and there are nothing i can do about it, at least not without reinstalling something or maybe even everything.

    So i think i will stay clear of gigabyte in the future.

    Yes i did turn it off a while back as i dident want to look at the mess.
    But i of course turned it on again for trying the new RGB fusion software, and i think it turned it off in bios again at least the only light are on my RAM and GFX ( also controlled by its native software, but the powercolor red devil GFX was not detected by the RGB fusion software )

    I have an EVGA GTX1080 and you need to use the manufactures own software to control the RGB, RGB Fusion doesn't do it

    I expect its the same with the powercolor. It will be in its own driver/software somewhere.

    Re: Gigabyte updates its gaming and content creator laptops

    Yes the powercolor program work like a charm, a bit limited in what it can do, but i can make it work, beside putting on a full cover EK cooler mean i will have to use its build in RGB, just not sure how ATM.

    TBH i am in the process of building / modifying a new home to my hardware, and i also have some plans about tearing into the Aorus extreme motherboard.
    BUT ! those i think will have to wait until the hardware are up and running in its new home, and what i plan to do i also think i can do without needing to decouple the cooling loop and detach the motherboard from its tray.

    I should maybe also just mention i am of course also on the newest bios version, in the case named F5.
