Gave it ago (again) still no joy. I think I have done everything mentioned in these threads - except for checking if the cable somehow disconnected from the plastic shroud, but don't think that is likely as it worked for a couple of days before it died altogether. Mind you, I guess that would explain why the motherboard is always greyed out in Aura.
But, then again, if I do turn the EVGA PSU off and then back on the RGB will illuminate for the briefest time - but at least that would indicate that power is avail - but is being shutoff somewhere else - perhaps in software?
Aura does show the DRAM and other headers - just not the MB.

Yeah same here with same motherboard. My case is #308. I tries last BIOS 0607 and its same..

Thanks for reply. I make two videos.

2) Dying of RGB after couple minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ra84vWJJabk
Aura sometimes detect my motherboard but sometimes not. But if i try change some effect nothing happens, default didnt helps too.
Im now in state, when even if i complatly remove aura lights they didnt work at all. I think AURA RGB firmware is f*cked for me. Any way to reflesh it or something? Or RMA this MB? Im really hopeless, I spend so many time on this...
Btw. suggested fix didnt help.
It is possible to force the software into enabling more than 120 LEDs, but anything past 120 does not light.
This leads me to believe there is a hardware/firmware limitation on the number of LEDs that can be driven.
So, I took everything apart and removed the plastic shroud to ensure the RGB light was plugged in....it was. Put everything back together and still the same...no RGB light on the MB and it is greyed out in the Aura software. I guess I'll try rolling back the BIOS to the previous one next - maybe that will help??

Have you actually unplug and replug the cable? It can help to reboot it.

No, I didn't try that....but is this really what needs to be done? Where is the QC for ASUS? Am I going to have to rip this MB out every few days to replug a cable - which I highly doubt is going to help in any way? That's ridiculous...there is an obvious software issue with these ROG Strix Z370 MBs and ASUS should be all over this?
Is ASUS aware of this growing issue with Aura and their MBs?
I'll try it...but this sux.

bought this motherboard 1 week ago. first of all i downloaded somehow the old .25 Version and it wasnt working. then i regocnized there is a new one and downloaded the 27 version. it worked maybe a half hour in combination with my tower LED stripes. i entered a game and since then never saw the lights again. tryed a lot, turned off on in the BIOS, tryed different versions of aura.
My ASUS B150i Pro Gaming/Aura motherboard isn't detected in ANY Aura Sync software including the 1.05.32 beta version.. It works fine on My Strix-GTX1050Ti-O4G graphics and G.Skill Trident Z RGB RAM..
Although the Motherboard RGB works using the Motherboard's supplied Aura software, but that software does not detect My Strix-GTX1050Ti-O4G graphics and G.Skill Trident Z RGB RAM..
Can you please provide support for the Motherboard?
I can confirm these settings do not work on Aura and i have 16gb ddr4 corsair Ram:
Does not Work:
Breathing, Ram lights turns off motherboard lights are on
Colour Cycle again motherboard lights work but ram lights are off
Wave does not work ram lights are off but motherboard lights on
Shutdown NONE OF THE OPTIONS WORK ON THE RAM THE motherboard runs the lights fine but the RAM LIGHTS ARE OFF.
Rainbow works , colour cycle and gradient
Comet all options work
Flash and Dash All Options work
Glowing YoYo All Options work
Starry Night all options work
Strobing all options work
Music All Options work
Shutdown settings for the lights NONE OF THE OPTIONS WORK ON THE RAM THE motherboard runs the lights run fine at shutdown but the RAM LIGHTS ARE OFF.
I have tried these on version Aura V1.05.32.02 and Version 1.05.28
This is defo software issue as i have replaced my parts twice. Still the issue remains.
I have had the issue of no MB RGB lights, on my brand new ROG Strix Z370-F MB, for sometime now and have tried everything under the sun to get them working (BIOS/Aura install - uninstall/ take MB out and confirm RGB cable is plugged in - twice) but nothing made a difference. I didn't want to do a fresh install of Win 10 - as this was already a fresh install with this build.
Then, today, ASUS asked me to use Aura V1.04.29 and F**K IT WORKED!! 🙂
Thank You ASUS!!
Who would have thought that not having these lights would mean so much in getting them back (excuse here...I'm tearing up :))
All is right in the world again and am back being an ASUS fan boy!!
Would like to know why this older version 1.04.29 works though??
Many thanks again ASUS!!

Can you try the fix from GeneralT001 by reinstalling 1.04.29 version and let us know if the LEDs are back and motherboard icon is recognized in Aura.
If you read the FAQ and latest changelog you will know that Corsair RAM lighting effect cannot be control during breathing and color cycle due to DRAM EC Specifications.
Thanks for sharing your fix.
For any other similar cases, p[lease help to try 1.04.29 version and report if that fix your issue. This will help our team to find a durable fix.
