Does anyone know how to control the RAM RGB on the FTW3? I have a set of trident Z NEO and the rainbow puke is killing me!  I've tried downloading the G.Skill RBG software, the RAM shows up in the software, but changing the color has no effect on the LEDs.

    Figured it out. 
     
    TLDR:  Had to uninstall all EVGA RGB software, then re-install G.Skill RBG software.

    Thanks for letting us know! I was curious as I installed the G.Skill app and it worked fine for me. I think it remembers it as long as I don't actually power down the PSU. If I do that it has to get into Windows before the rainbow goes away.
     
    Edit: Forgot to say, I'm not pleased with having to run the G.Skill app in the background to get the memory to work. I can close it once in Windows and it will continue with the settings I put in, but I don't like that I have to do that every time I boot the computer, which means I generally just leave it running unless I'm doing benchmarks. It would be much better if the motherboard EUFI had a way to set the profile so that no Windows apps were required.

    i absolutely refuse to run another app to control the ram RGB.  Aura sync and Fusion all do this in one app.  EVGA needs to either 1. implement another vendors solution or 2. figure it out.

    I think where I "messed up" is the G.Skill software needed to be installed first then EVGA's software.  Everything is working now.
     
    I agree, EVGA needs to get their eco system sorted.  Silly I need to open 5 software suites to get the RGB synced. X1, Unleash, Flow Control, EX, G.Skill.

    They definitely need to get that sorted. As much as I despise Asus, at least their Aura software let me control the g.Skill RGB on the Hero IX.

    EVGA needs one software to control all their devices and RGB. Why so many individual softwares?

    I had the EVGA software installed but not running, Flow Control, Unleash, Precision X1 & Eleet.
    No need to uninstall.
    The G.Skill rgb app ran fine. It even says somewhere that no other rgb software can be running.
     
    That rainbow puke was horrible but I want the EVGA software so G.Skill app is now gone.
     
    In fact the G.Skill ram wouldn't even startup with XMP1 so it's gone now too.
    Don't like or need ram that lights up!
