Hello VistaKing

It's possible you may need this Nvidia firmware update, the update tool will detect if the firmware update is needed.

NVIDIA GPU UEFI Firmware Update Tool | NVIDIA (

You're having memory issues because you're combining two memory kits. It's recommended to purchase a single memory kit of the speed and capacity you want. 128GB 6000MHz is not validated by Corsair.

Try with one memory kit in the A2-B2 slots (2nd and 4th slots from the cpu).


Thank you , Nate 

Installing the firmware on my graphic card fixed the Asus splash screen not working .

Since you already have icue and Armoury Crate installed, all you should need to do is install the Corsair RGB Memory Plugin for ASUS AURA SYNC and do a little configuring.

iCUE:How to integrate ASUS Armoury Crate with iCUE – Corsair

Once you've followed the steps above, in Armoury Crate, go to Aura Sync and see if your memory is listed and if you have lighting control.

Your memory should show here.

I have the icue Asus sync plug-in that I installed from Corsair’s website still not able to control the colors in asus crate even if I go inside the asus sync within Asus Crate.

If you've followed the steps in the link and your memory isn't showing in Aura Sync.

1) Open icue.

2) Click on your memory.

3) At the top, click Settings.

4) Check the box that says "Enable full software control". You can check for an update while you're there.

5) Check Aura Sync if your memory is showing.

6) If your memory is not showing, click "Search for devices" at the bottom of the Sync devices page.

Hi Nate . Opened iCue I don’t see this in my version of icue . Tried to redownload the asus sync icue app but it looks like something is wrong with the URL to download the app . VistaKing_0-1713125338937.png
