Are you ready to light up your gaming PC with your desired colors and effects?
Then you have come to the right place.
Asus Aura Sync is the software we will use to control the fancy light effects. Here you will get the download link for Asus Aura Sync. And I will also provide you simple instructions by which you can sync your RGB components like you always wanted.
So, let’s get started.
What is Aura Sync
ASUS Aura Sync is an app using which you can synchronize the RGB lighting components of your gaming PC.
You can turn your component’s LED on/off lighting by using this software. You can also personalize the colors and set several wonderful effects to showcase your gorgeous gaming PC as well as to know various information.
A cool implementation of your RGB lights could be like this; the lights would be green for stable temperatures of all the components. As the components get hotter, the RGB turns red.
To do that, first, download Aura Sync. Then only the sky is your limit as you can set AuraSync to display almost any effects.
How to Download Asus Aura Sync
Asus bundles Aura Sync with its Armory Crate suite of utilities these days. If you install the Armory crate app, then everything is installed with it.
The current version of Armory Crate is 22.214.171.124, which supports both Windows 10 and 11. Download the software based on your operating system below.

If you wish to download a standalone installer for Aura Sync, Asus provides that option too. But note that this version will not receive future updates, as you get the tool built in with Armory Crate.
The current version of Aura Sync is 1.07.84_V2.

How to Install Asus Aura Sync
To install Aura Sync, first, extract the installer from the compressed file. You can use any software to de-compress this file, such as 7-Zip or WinRar. It is wise to create a new folder and put all the extracted files there. That way, your drive will be free from any clutter.
Next, run the installer and follow the on-screen instructions. If you are using Armory Crate to access RGB sync software, select Install Armory Crate at the start of the installation process.
After the installation finishes, restart your computer.

How to Use Asus Aura Sync to Synchronize RGB
First, open Armory Crate, and you will find a separate section for Aura Sync. Here you will find all the connected devices synced with the app. Once you sync all your devices, you can choose between many pre-built effects on your RGB setup.
These are the steps to set up Asus Aura Sync on your computer:
- Open Armory Crate and click on the Aura Sync icon on the left tab.
- Click on the Sync button at the top. Wait as all devices are detected and check for a tick next to each component.
- Next, click on Aura Effects.
- Select any effect from the app and customize its color and speed. You can also create your own custom RGB effect by installing Aura Creator. This has many advanced effects and customization options.
Apart from some static and dynamic effects, Aura Sync also has a cool music preset. Using this effect syncs all your RGBs with the music beats. It also works with videos very well. On a dark scene, the RGBs will be dim. When the brightness increases, the lights sync with the video. This is a perfect candidate for horror movies.

How to Synchronize Non-Compatible Components With Aura Sync
If your motherboard does not support Aura Sync, there is one way to sync all the case fans and LED strips. You can use an RGB controller which connects all the fans and LED headers in a single place. I recommend using the ASUS ROG Aura Terminal, as it will provide the best compatibility with the Aura Sync app.
But note this: all the case fans, CPU coolers, and LED strips must be ARGB compatible to work with Aura Sync.
Here is how you can sync non-compatible components with Aura Sync:
- Use a ROG Aura Terminal if your motherboard isn’t aura sync compatible.
- Replace the RGB LED strips of the non-compatible components with an Aura Sync-compatible LED strip.
- Connect the LED strips, case fans, and CPU cooler RGB header to ROG Aura Terminal (If your motherboard isn’t compatible with aura sync).
- Install Aura Sync and customize the RGB effects to your heart’s content.
Now all your components will sync together with a single click.

(Bonus) All About Lighting: RGB, ARGB Explained
You may already know what RGB is. But if you want a short explainer, this section will help you out.
What is RGB?
The term RGB stands for Red, Green, and Blue. In the case of PC Lighting, RGB means the LED of the Components and accessories can show several colors, mixing these three colors.
Most RGB components can show up to 16.8 million unique colors.
What is ARGB?
ARGB stands for Addressable RGB. In the case of PC lighting ARGB means the components will be able to show several lighting colors at a time and will be able to show a rainbow-type effect.
Addressable RGB can perform several effects that a simple RGB component can’t.
What are the main differences between an RGB and ARGB component?
Well, this is a 2 step answer:
An RGB component has some light effects fixed by the manufacturer. It can only display these effects, and some models allow switching between them.
As for ARGB, you have full control over the colors and LED effects shown by the component. Using any RGB control software, such as Aura Sync, you can all control the lighting effects.

Good evening! Thanks to your tutorial I managed to customize the RGB keyboard on my laptop (asus rog strix g15 advantage g513qy). There is literally nothing on the official Asus website about this software in the Drivers & Tools page for this laptop. Aura Creator and the other Aura software are useless on this laptop, if someone wants to customize their keyboard, you just need this software (Asus Aura Sync linked here). Thanks again! Cheers!
