sorry bro - 4800c18, not 17.
No posting about unreleased kits... until they are released.

Put a fan on the RGB sticks if that's the issue. My Royals 4800c17 kity runs fine with the rgb enabled. When I run them at 1.9V I switch all lights off.

jeffk Has anyone noticed that Q-fan Step up / down speed are completly ignored ? So the CPU Fan / Case fan are waving when the CPU temp spike just for second, when browsing for example.

(Q-fan Bios setting without AI suit)

Hehe, that's right. I want my cake and icecream!

I ended up turning off all the LEDs. I can't see the ram RGB anyways from the cpu cooler (D15) so it was just extra heat.

GSkill 4800 c18 doesn't come without rgb. This kit was needed for best overclocking capabilities. The rest of your post is irrelevant.

Exactly the same reason I didn't install it and stuck with the same red rgb. ram is stuck with the RGB cycling, may look at a non RBG set next week.
Kind of over this RGB thing.
Hoping they put out higher binned ram without RGB going forward.

I've only been successful to turn off the ram RGB with the gskill software. But it requires a service in windows and only turns it off once windows is loaded.

Thanks!

Just a suggestion, it's the only way I know of...

Sorry I just don't understand this mindset. I get it if it's some crappy resource hungry anti-malware application, or a third party application that really has no business running in the background like Steam when I'm not playing a game, or my qBittorrent program that starts by default when Windows boots unless you disable that behavior, it doesn't need to be running unless I'm DLing something. These can be shut off by using msconfig or the apps settings. But not installing a lighting control application from the manufacture that I can use to control the lighting from my desktop, or the software for my sound-card because it's "bloatware"??? They don't take up that much resource wise nor do they take up that much space on my C: drive I have games MUCH larger than Armoury Crate. Geeze it's not like I can't watch a movie while I use Excel, Word (with multiple instances of it sometimes as many as 10), look at the Power Points my professors post AND surf on the internet with 15 or 20 tabs open to get my research for class done (yes I do ALL of this simultaneously) because Armoury Crate makes my video stutter, reduces my FPS, or screws with my internet connection...

Personally I think you can take such things a tad to far, but then I don't use a computer half as hard as a lot of people here I'm sure.
