I recently got a hold of a gigabyte graphics card with RGB controllable through RGB fusion 2. My question comes because of the Asus motherboard I was planning on using, does RGB fusion need a gigabyte motherboard to work, or is it a standalone RGB program more like Corsair iq? If I were to use my gigabyte graphics card on my Asus board, would I be able to download RGB fusion and control the lighting or would it just be on a cycling pattern with no control?

Which Gigabyte graphics card do you have specifically?

If your graphics card does not have an RGB / ARGB header on it (like my Sapphire NITRO+ 5700 XT), then RGB Fusion 2.0 is most likely your only option.

 

You should be able to control the color, color pattern (pulse, flash, color cycle), etc, etc, through RGB Fusion 2.0.

 

Major concern is whether or not RGB Fusion will conflict with ASUS Aura.

Those are RGB control software, and they might interfere with one another.... but you won't know until you try.

 

One of my buddies had a nightmare with multiple RGB software...and things just didn't work well...

It's the gigabyte 3080 OC, and I don't think I'd have that issue. my fans in the front of my case are controllable through both gigabyte and Asus software, so I'd be able to just use RGB fusion 2 as long as it doesn't depend on a motherboard from gigabyte. My Ram is only controllable through Corsair software, not gigabyte or asus, so I don't think I have a problem there. I've just heard very negative things about gigabytes software, and I've always liked Asus reliability. So are you saying that RGB fusion 2 does not depend on a gigabyte motherboard?
