RAM RGB won't sync after restart


At my wits end, PC is a build for a mate of mine

Windows 10 Home
Gigabyte X570S Aorus Pro AX Motherboard

PowerColor Radeon RX 6800 XT Red Devil OC 16GB RDNA 2

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X Processor

G.Skill Trident Z RGB 64GB (4x16GB) 3600MHz CL16 DDR4

Corsair ML120 PRO RGB 120mm Mag Lev PWM Fans

ISSUE: Initial RGB setup with Gigabyte RGB Fusion 2 works fine. Upon reboot/restart, RAM LEDs are either not on at all, or are using default unicorn vomit pattern. RAM stops showing up at all in RGB Fusion, and also doesn't show up as G.Skill RAM in Gigabyte EasyTune.

RAM is still visible in BIOS, all memory capacity is accounted for. G.Skill RGB software only changes colour to one DIMM. OpenRGB software changes RAM LEDs, but also overrides all other lighting software and creates conflicting colours (some fans deriving colour from iCUE, some from OpenRGB). If I fiddle with uninstalling/reinstalling, it occasionally detects the RAM and lets me change their RGB, but it all resets again when I shutdown or restart the PC.

NOTE: This is the second of two identical PC builds. The only thing that differs between the two is that this problematic PC has 4X16gb DIMMs and the one that didn't have issues has 2X16gb DIMMs


  • Uninstalling all RGB control software, reinstalling in different orders to see if that changes anything.
  • Reinstalling windows and all drivers
  • Installing all drivers before using RGB control software
  • Running everything as Administrator
  • Running RGB programs in various compatibility modes
  • Setting the RAM to a specific (and safe) voltage (solved similar issue elsewhere online)
  • Clearing CMOS
  • Running all lighting through OpenRGB
  • Praying to Odin for wisdom

Seems like a minor issue, but the mate I'm building this for just wants a clean, ambient colour that isn't distracting. Unchangeable unicorn barf is certainly not acceptable. I'd appreciate any pointers to help me fix this ASAP so I can deliver the build
