Aurua Sync, AI Suite, Creator (?), or OpenRGB, Fan Control, Intel® XTU

Level 10


I am looking for some basic RGB control and proper fan control, both without the bloatware, and then possibly down the line some overclocking.
I think that I already know the answer to this but would your input.

I am only really interested in a static colour re RGB as there are only two parts that have it - the motherboard itself and the pump combo. So would Sync or OpenRGB be the better choice here?

I believe that you can only get Creator by installing ArmoryCrate, is that correct?

I like the look of all the info available in AI suite but again Fan Control offers as much if not more re fans? So which is the better choice?

Once everything is settled and running okay in everyday usage I may well look into some basic, Easy overclocking. And again there looks to be two choices - AI suite and Intel XTU. I am leaning slightly towards XTU as surely Intel should know their own chips the best?

Thanks all
