You're gonna want that uninstaller first.

Without that uninstaller, every new Armoury crate version will be useless!

i actually had to create my own BAT file that auto removes leftover reg entries and use REVO unninstaller in the process

Quite a pain in the rear end but it only takes me 10 min to uninstall vs 35 - 40 min


I have a ZENITH ii EXTREME ALPHA MB, and at least on previous version aura on motherboard and RAM worked properly, but after the latest update, it broke ram led functionality [only three out of 4 work] quite disappointing to say the least

1. PC,
2. Aura Sync products are the motherboard, Mouse and keyboard.
3. The only 3rd part item I have is a LianLi Strimer RGB cable plugged into the RGB header on the motherboard.
4. Wired connection,
5. I've tried reinstalling Windows, It doesn't fix anything.
6. Windows 10 Pro version 2004.
7. I only ever used Aura sync and Armoury, Now with Crate, Nothing works.
8. Only the ROG Claymore keyboard shows up and even that is buggy.
9. Screenshot isn't really needed, It's self explanatory.
10. Log collection wouldn't work.

I don't know what you put in the Crate software but before I used it my installation of Aura sync and Armoury II worked great, Even if I uninstall Crate nothing seems to work, Your software team seriously needs to devote some serious time to this as it's an incredibly buggy piece of software that is actively stopping people from controlling the hardware they bought.

SO i have tried somthing and dont know if it will work for every one so everything i say i am not responsible of your system but oled issue is still there it get stuck on default or a preset but for me a restart ruturns to normal again but the lights works for me good keeps on the chosen preset and not returning to default anymore

so i have disabled win defender forever
set xmp I not II
bios disable fastboot and also windows setting
i only use m.2 so i disabled all sata in bios

at first i noticed that out of nowhere mine rgb returned to the preset i had chosen but did not stay for long after a restart it did go back to the default then later was back on preset for me maybe also i did not try the turn off fully pc and wait 10min and turn it back on again and reinstalling windows 10 was not needed
so reinstalled windows 10 and first installed al drivers then downloaded mic visual c++ both x86 and 64 and installed them

Another user "MXAndresMX" sent me a solution for which I am very grateful. Asus should take notes. All of the RGB of the ram is working properly. Follow the steps in his readme file. This literally just takes a few minutes. Here's a link:

so after a lot of testing its has to do with windows defender i disabled it all lighting was working fine

then enabled it back again and al lights where issue keeps going on default mode i am reinstalling windows may 2004 again and disabling defender again because somthing now after last update this week in defender would alow me to disable it

i forgot to to go the windows safe mode i disabled it there now al lights are working fine

only issue is that oled freeze or stuck preset after restart its working fine

Anyone else having issue with the latest version of Crate that i'm albe to start it but if i want to change device it craches, no matter how i do!

Hope it's will been fixed in the further updates.
