Can i control Polymo Lighting colour on Asus Z790 Maximus Hero ?

Level 9

Hello everyone,

I recently bought Asus Z790 Maximus Hero, and when im inside motherboard page in Armory crate i have 3 different effects -Neon Flare, Light Dizzle and Rain.They work but when i apply them it work in purple colours and i cant control them , its says 'effect has no additional properties to customize' i cant change either the colour or the brightness.

Is there a way to change them or they work only like that ( just the effect with random colours and no customization) btw when i sync  with aura , all effects work fine, without problem.The problem is only with this one that are from motherboard page.

My Armory crate is up to date and my windows 11 pro also.

Any advices are appriciated

It's the same on my 690 hero, that's just the way it works I believe. Software can be used to change the patterns (which I suspect are firmware controlled in the display itself) but the colours available are a consequence of the display and the way the LEDs (and type) are physically located. It seems to me that the polymo display is just turning the LEDs on and off in groups, so there really isn't much that can be changed.
