LIGHT UP AS EASY AS RGB AURA 4-PIN RGB

STRIP HEADERS & LIGHTING CONTROL

Forget the faff of external RGB controllers! With ROG's Aura RGB Strip header, it's quick and easy to cast brilliant colors across your rig and room: Just slide standard 12V RGB strips onto the 4-pin Aura RGB-strip headers, then weave your lighting any way you like. Customize static, strobing and pulsating effects, or have the colors change in time with music or indicate CPU temperature.

Maximus VIII Hero Alpha includes the amazing Aura lighting-control utility to cast stunning multi-color glows across your gaming rig, via the motherboard's powerful built-in RGB LEDs or attached RGB strips, or both and in perfect synchronization! Fire up Aura and then enjoy the creative freedom of six different lighting schemes:
