4004 BIOS ARGB Header Glitch

Bostonjunk
Level 8
Seems there is a bug with the new BIOS and/or the LED firmware it flashes - I find both ARGB headers only work if I disable the LED strip in Aura sync or if I select a static colour. If I choose a basic effect, only the second header works. If I use a custom one from Aura Creator, neither of them work.

I'm on the C8F but it seems those with the C8H WiFi also have issues - not sure if it's all C8 mobos with the same bug.

Hoping it's just software and can be fixed with an Armoury Crate/Aura update.

Any others getting the same problem?

I had the same problem as you described and with the same bios update.
I wrote a post on the Armoury Crate section.
I resolved the issue by downgrading the bios with the one immediately prior to the 4004.
As long as the bios update doesn't have a fix that you need you can downgrade the bios for the time being.

Unfortunately, that doens't seem to do anything.
When I download it, I get a zip file with a 2.7mb installer from 19/11/21
When I run it, it asks what I want to install, then just closes and does nothing.
