Dear Support,

When I installed or upgraded by BIOS from 1202 to 1302 I noticed the following message as part of the BIOS upgrade.

On the support page there is no mention of what was updated in the LED LIGHTING side of things.

Where can I find the details on what was fixed?

Hello, @achugh 

Some routine updates may not be listed in the release notes.
May I ask if you have encountered any LED lighting issues after updating the BIOS?

Thank you.

Hi @Jiaszzz_ROG , I am really looking for ASUS BIOS to support STEALTH MODE for ASUS TUF RTX4090 card and was hoping that this lighting update will make that happen. See my post https://rog-forum.asus.com/t5/nvidia-graphics-cards/asus-tuf-gaming-geforce-rtx-4090-oc-edition-not-...

This BIOS update did not make this STEALTH MODE work for this card hence I was looking for what was fixed in this update. I am not a fan of RGB lighting. I have my Anime display, my Q-CODE, Function Keys even my RGB on the memory kit all disabled. The only thing not turning off is this ASUS TUF RTX4090 card. I am able to shut RTX4090 lights off if I install Armory Crate. It is not an application that works smoothly and I have shared my issues with it in the now locked Armory Crate thread for feedback.

For a simple option to turn off the lights I really would like the ASUS UEFI team to help me out by supporting the STEALTH MODE for this card as well. This way I can control bare minimum things like using RGB lights of various components via BIOS instead of using much heavier Windows Applications like Armoury Crate. I am also worried that eventually ASUS development team's focus will shift to newer products and newer versions of Windows will not have a supported Armory Crate application for my needs. At that point, what will I do if I cannot control basic things from BIOS.

In this situation, I am loving the Corsair iCUE software. I can load the RGB configuration directly into the Memory Sticks and it works without the software. In other words, I can create a test Windows Machine as a Dual Boot or virtual machine, setup the memory stick RGB the way I like and return back to my normal Windows setup without having the need to run iCUE software as the RGB profile is now loaded on the stick to work independently. I love this approach and would really like ASUS Development team to provide similar options for ASUS products as well like Motherboards, GFX Cards etc. This way when say Windows 12, 13, 14 or 15 comes; I am not dependent on ASUS supporting my Z790 Dark Hero motherboard lighting 10 years from now. I can do basic control via BIOS and that will be good enough for making this machine work for as long as it can for my needs and we all don't fill up the landfills with electronic waste and keep our planet earth green for a little bit longer.

Hello, @achugh 

Thank you for the additional information.
Based on our discussion with @Aureliannn_ROG , please refer to [Motherboard] How to turn off the AURA lighting effect of the MB/AIO water cooling/ROG keyboard and ... and configure the settings via Armoury Crate.

Thank you.

Thank you @Jiaszzz_ROG for helping me connect to @Aureliannn_ROG . I have responded back.

As a quick request, this FAQ has a broken link to USB Connected Devices which points to https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1042220 link. This link gives 404 Oops Message. Can this link be fixed?

Thank you @Jiaszzz_ROG , the broken FAQ link is now working. I have my BIOS and Windows 11 set exactly the same way as is mentioned in this article already.
