Z790 Creator - Should I install ASUS AI Suite? MyAsus? I try to avoid unnecessary bloatware/resourc

Level 9

Are there actually useful features here?

They would have to be very very very useful, time saving, life improving features... to warrant any loss of resources if running in the background or something.

Any idea? Tips?


also, I plan on this machine being an offline machine once everything is installed and running - - - so if any of this stuff needs a connection in order be useful... not going to work.

I also run different professional 3rd party diagnostics software, and stuff that pertains to audio performance already as well.

Anyone? Anyone? Any benefits?




Level 17

I do use Armoury Crate and it's handy for controlling some RGB devices (like connected light strips for example) and motherboard fans, but there is other software that will do that better. It will also show installed drivers and suggest updates, but I can't think of anything that I couldn't live without. There is also better software for driver management. So no, if you're not missing it, you don't need it. It has other features, but not really important.  

Regarding MyAsus, I've never installed it and don't even know what it does. I suspect it's to make returns easier in the event of a problem. 

So yeah, if you want super clean, don't bother with either.

Level 10

I use the MyAsus (App) on the TUF laptop, since for the laptop it has some cool benefits, without overload ur OS with bloatware (Example: Battery 80% threshold, direct Component updates, Overviev of Versions.)
But I don't see reas. benefits for a custom built PC.

For all RGB stuff, I can suggest OpenRGB (Beta). The program can be used  portable and works even during start up and shut down. All RGB components of my build were recognized and work flawless (expect for my G.Skill DDR5 RAM; They change color back to rainbow after power off). 

I stay far away from Armory Crate and similar overloaded software.
