ICUE controls ASUS MOBO RGB Workaround (ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming WIFI)

My ICUE cannot override ASUS MOBO RGB control after recent software updates. I am not sure is it Corsair or ASUS but I tested this method and it works for me, no need to uninstall latest Armoury Crate or ICUE.

 

Steps:

1. I have Armoury Crate 3.3.7.0 and ICUE 3.37.140.

2. Note that the default ASUS Plugin that comes with latest version is 1.2.1.0 (Not to be confused with the plugin that is used to control Corsair RAM)

3. You do not want 1.2.1.0, so go to this link https://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=192965, download attachment "ASUS Plugin.zip".

4. Exit ICUE Software if it is running.

5. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Corsair\CORSAIR iCUE Software\plugins

6. Back up the folder "ASUS" and cut it somewhere else (It will not work if you rename the folder and keep it under this directory, ICUE will automatically detect the latest plugin)

7. Extract the "ASUS" folder you just downloaded to C:\Program Files (x86)\Corsair\CORSAIR iCUE Software\plugins

8. Open ICUE Software, wait a few seconds for it to detect ASUS MOBO, go to "Settings" and choose MOBO tab, it should show Plug-In v.1.0.4.0 (Sometimes ICUE won't open, so go to task manager, kill ICUE and try opening it again)

9. Your ICUE rules over ASUS MOBO again:sunglasse

 

*Do take note I tested this on ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming WIFI and I do not have ASUS GPU RGB.

This has been discussed in length. Also that plugin is outdated and will not resolve the issue for everyone. For instance with my setup that older plugin actually causes iCUE to crash on launch. At this time we are still awaiting Asus to provide a fix either by updating their provided plugin or by updating Armoury Crate which broke RGB integration with the latest build.
