It shouldn't at all, i haven't tried what other brands used, it would be kinda stupid that brands use the same RGB controller
Would be funny , because we could cross-port stuff / but it would be dumb
The zip i linked above has the X370 Taichi only firmware in case people updated their controller firmware somehow (shouldn't but who knows)
It's known that other ASRock boards have similar or even the same firmware , but it's not part of the UEFI firmware, because you can programm that chip individually
It rly shouldn't update it unless it recognises a known device ID
while there is a huge list , give me one sec i'll edit this post and reupload the device ID and list as "spoiler"
I am not sure. You posted back there, that the Polychrome Software has a firmware component that updates the Taichi RGB firmware. And that for the x370 Taichi to work with the x470 bios, one need to downgrade the firmware.
By accident, I started the installation on my GB MB (silly, I know, worked at wrong PC unintentionally at home).
Under normal circumstances, there should just be an error message and that should be it.
In my case, the start of the software resultet in an immediate hard reset and cold boot. After that, the system went into "training mode" because it restartet itself several times. That is unusual for a simple "software crash".
That led me to believe, that the ASRock software somehow tried to update some component on my MB. I have no idea if it succeeded or only was "rejected" because of the incompatibility.
Would be nice, if I could somehow check the status of my RGB components, but at least, onboard RGB on my Aorus master still works fine. So nothing bad seems to have happened.
I just went a little into panick mode, these are things that usually do not happen to me. I am tinkering with MBs for more than 25 years.
It could just be an incompatibility with no lasting consequences (system works fine, again).
Anyhow, I do not want to derail the Taichi thread (even though I own one).
