​How to Enable Aura Sync Control for Corsair RGB Memory (2019)

I know how it feels: 

When you got all the latest and greatest RGB components.

But, some of them usually don’t sync with each other!

Specially, your shiny corsair RGB memory modules (RAM) with the most popular RGB Light controlling software Aura Sync.

Hey, don’t worry; I got you covered!

In this intuitive article I will explain the easiest and step by step process to enable aura sync control for your corsair RGB memory modules (RAM) ; for your Corsair Vengeance RGB or the Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB .

Why Aura Sync and Corsair RGB RAM don’t sync?

One word: proprietary;

Asus and Corsair are two completely different and independent companies.

In fact, they are each other’s competitor in the gaming hardware niche.

As you all know, gaming hardware segment is highly saturated with competitions and eye caching marketing. Each brand has their own software to control their product.

As a result, it becomes difficult for the end users like you and me to mix and match components.

We just want to get the best of both worlds.

Asus has pioneered in RGB syncing technology with their Aura sync software. On the other hand, corsair has one of the best RGB memory modules (RAM) in the inventory.

So, it’s pretty common if you have an Asus motherboard and corsair RGB RAM at the same time.

Pre-requisites for connecting Corsair RAM with Asus Aura Sync

Just because you have got a corsair RAM doesn’t mean you can connect it with your aura software.

Unfortunately you can apply this fix only to your ‘vengeance RGB Pro’ and ‘dominator RGB platinum’ series from corsair.

So, the first requirement is to grab your supported memory modules.

Then you need the latest version of aura sync and Corsair iCUE Software.

You can easily download aura sync from here.

After that, you have to install the iCUE Aura sync plug in from corsair 

What is Corsair iCUE?

Almost every gaming components maker has their own RGB syncing software.

And iCUE is corsair’s take on it.

When you have lots of RGB components in one machine it can be tricky to sync and manage.

That’s why corsair developed their version and named it iCUE.

Basically, iCUE is a software that helps you to connect and control all your corsair components in a single dashboard.

It makes life easy, isn’t it?

Not only syncing, you can also create profiles for better and synchronized RGB lighting.

Also, iCUE provides game-level integration.

Right now, you can sync iCUE with games like Metro Exodus, The Division 2, Far cry new dawn, Far cry 5 and son on.

Last but not the least, you can optimize your fan speed/noise with this software.

It’s cool, right?

But there’s a problem.

Yes, you got me right. Corsair doesn’t make motherboard. And that’s why they don’t have access to the motherboard’s RGB illumination.

If corsair had one then it would be much easier to sync every product of corsair with their iCUE software.

As a result, all of us need to sync the corsair components with the motherboard’s light syncing app like the Aura sync of Asus.
