Linition Posted December 27, 2021 Share Posted December 27, 2021 https://www.asus.com/us/site/rog-build/rog-corsair.html How do people feel about this? I got curious about Asus' RGB integration into iCUE and became curious about how far the cooperation goes. I personally really like the idea of Corsair partnering up with a leading computer company that makes complementary products, because when you become a fan of a brand, you like more than just their quality. It's also about their design language, kind of like with Apple and much like with car brands. And just like with being a fan of BMW, Jaguar, or Ferrari, you wouldn't want the different interior and exterior parts of your car to be designed differently. I guess eclecticism is the polar opposite of bran identity that way. I used to mix and match companies based on whatever fit my requirements best, often I built the setups myself too, but I think if you can have both top performance for your specific budget as well as an enveloping brand design language, it can add another layer of satisfaction. The ease of use is another aspect, though with only RGB integration, although nice to have everything synced in case you go for that much RGB, you still end up needing to install all the different software, which is Armory Crate for your Asus motherboard, GPU Tweak for your Asus GPU and possibly even the drivers for Asus peripherals, all that on top of iCUE. So obviously, even if we narrow it down to the lowest amount of brands possible, ending up with 2 still barely cuts down on background programs to install. Unfortunately I don't think this will ever change in a cooperation. It sounds like a nightmare in terms of responsibility, compatibility and QA to me to rely on another multi-product company to make the drivers/software for your multi-product company. I guess we would need to see a merger before something like that happens. I do have some questions though, why not EVGA? They seemed like the perfect fit to me as a customer. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
