What exactly do you dislike so much about it? I do like the rgb myself, I do HATE the aura software, every time I reboot my system the colors reset to color cycle mad.gif (I do have S4+S5 on in bios otherwise the lights keep on and I can't sleep.
But I mean it can't be that difficult to save the color and keep it when you reboot, my H100i led keeps red even without the Link software and after a couple re installs of window.

I really, really, REALLY dislike that most of the colors are not uniform. I can't do the black and yellow build I was planning because setting it to yellow, I get yellow, green, and orange. The RGB implementation is really poor. There's either not enough LEDs for true RGB, they are focused improperly, or they are not close enough together to make colors uniform. It could be some combination of the aforementioned. I fell in love with this board the moment I saw pics of it. I decided to buy one recently even though I had no need to. I was very happy with everything about it until I tried RGB on a color other than red. The implementation of "RGB" is unacceptable.

Yeah, I do have to agree, the yellow does look green-ish

Most RGB Setups struggle with white as they are trying to make white using 3 LEDS instead of a single LED. Having sadi that I use NZXT HUE+ and it does do better white than the ROG. Not as good as white as a plain white LED strip though.

The Corsair AIO = Pure White
G910 = Pure White
G303 = Pure White
G600 = Pure White
Formula = Lilac?

The board has issues with certain colors that I can emulate with with precision on other RGB devices. Some of the colors like Purple and Green are mostly uniform, but one of the top left strips shows magenta and orange respectively when set. Blue, Teal, and Red seem to be the only colors I can use with good overall uniformity. Yellow and White are a mess. Maybe bean counters are to blame, but I can believe someone signed off on "RGB" for this board when very few colors in the palette can be duplicated without errant areas of the board doing their own thing.

Agree, wasnt defending the RGB on the board just that from what I have seen white is only pure when coming from a white LED, you notice the difference side by side, some manufactures use a film over top of RGB to hide some of difference and difuse the ligth, you can see this on the Formula when you look at ROG logo, looks better than the other parts of board ( not perfect though) as you can't see the actuall LED. I have yet to see a motherboard RGB setup pull off RGB well, especially when comapred to other periphials.

Anyone using the light strips from the first NZXT Hue with the boards Aura Strip header? It says 5050 strips but I can't find anywhere what kind of strips the original NZXT Hue uses and my strips are attached with silicon because the 3m tape is trash. rolleyes.gif So I can't see the bottom side to see if they are marked or not.
