Armoury Crate causing RGB issues?

Level 7

Hello, I just got a new Windows 11 PC not long ago. It's been having some issues off and on, and I'm about to RMA my motherboard for an issue with the LAN port on it. However, I've noticed every now and then, the RGB lights on my Arctic fans will stop cycling through their colors, and instead start flashing colors. In this time, I notice the RGB on my G.Skill RAM just stop entirely, no cycling just whatever colors it happened to be on, they stay on. They also stop registering on the HWMonitor entirely as I use it to sometimes monitor temps, only way I can fix this is to fully shut the PC off and reboot it as restarting the PC gives me a black screen. 

Could this also be in connection with the motherboard LAN port issues and my board is further broken than I thought? I noticed this issue a while back but I never thought much of it, I thought it was because my internet was down for 4 days because of an issue with the ISP.
