Lighting & Software
When you power your system on the memory will light up. By default it will run a Rainbow Wave effect. Now if you want to configure the RGB lighting you can either use your motherboard’s RGB software or Mushkin’s RGB software. As far as motherboard RGB software the memory is compatible with ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion 2.0, MSI Mystic Light, and ASRock Polychrome SYNC.
I decided to use Mushkin’s RGB software. The app allows you to set 8 different effects, control each DIMM individually, and control each RGB LED individually. The app does have a scaling problem though, running it on a 4K display with 200% scaling enabled it remained non-scaled. It was not too small to not be able to use and we’ve seen this from other RGB software as well.
As far as the RGB lighting goes it looks quite good. The diffuser on each module does a good job of making the light seem fluid and not like individual RGB LEDs (pictures don’t do it justice).
