RGB not working on ASUS Moptherboard

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have an ASUS ROG Strix Z370 Gaming-E motherboard and the lights on the heatsink stopped working after I moved my tower and unplugged the PSU. All other case lights, RGB RAM, GPU lights, etc. work fine still. I tried restarting the computer, messed with settings and reset the AURA app, and even uninstalled it and reset it. I did a BIOS update as well and nothing seems to get them going again. I know its a 1st world problem and it doesn't really matter but it's still kind of annoying for a $200 motherboard that I've had for less than a year. Any ideas?

Something might have come loose, the heatsink does actually have a cable that needs to be plugged in. Unscrew your heatsink and make sure the cable for it is plugged in or that all the wires and connections are intact.

Really, that's interesting. Thanks, I'll take a look and see.
