Software & Lighting
When you install the memory and power on your system you’ll notice the RGB lights on the memory light up no problem. If you want to control and customize this lighting you’ll need to either download the HyperX NGenuity Software or use your motherboard’s RGB control software. NGenuity is actually available from the Microsoft Store, so it is easy to download.
When you open the software it will list your HyperX products on the left. As you can see we are using both HyperX memory and a keyboard.
Clicking in to our memory we can select the effect and the speed of the effect. If it is an effect like “solid” you can also set the colors etc. There are a handful of effects like “Blink:, “Bounce”, “Breathing”, “Cycle”, “Heartbeat”, “Comet”, “Rainbow”, and “Solid”.
The RGB lighting is quite good and just as advertised the effects of the two separate modules stay in-sync with each others. Typically with other memory modules after a few minutes the effects will be out of sync.
For those who want to use this memory with their motherboard software we had no problem getting ASRock’s Polychrome Sync software to detect the memory.
