    Before I begin I would like to apologize if I misplaced this post!

    Now to start!

    I plan on starting a PC overhaul late 2017/early-mid 2018 and I want to base it off of Chroma lighting!

    From my understanding of Chroma lighting builds, that means no LED fans, since I don't think there are any that sync to either Asus Aura or Razer Chroma.

    Here is my goal for this build: Large black PC with Chroma lighting it up like a Christmas tree.

    My first question is this: Can Asus Aura sync to Razer Chroma? The build I've decided on(subject to change based on new tech releases) consists of both a Asus GPU and a Asus Motherboard, both with Aura lighting. So I would consider it a massive bonus if Aura and Chroma could link up!

    Second question(SOLVED!) is a little complicated: How well will the Razer Chroma HDK/LED strips light up a full tower PC case?
    What would I need to do to make it bright and flashy while keeping it stylish/not overdone?
    For hardware lighting it will be my 4-stack DDR4 G.skill(the stuff with the full length RGB bar), my CPU liquid Cooler(probably Corsair, although I may go NZXT), my GPU, and my Motherboard.

    Thanks in advance!

    I can answer the second one since i have the HDK. They are really bright. They light up my whole wall no problem. I think they will be able to light up the inside of a case :)

    Unfortunately since Chroma and Aura Sync are proprietary technologies they will not talk to each other by default.
    If you are competent with programming it may be possible to write code that would snoop the effects from Aura Sync and change Chroma effects using the Chroma SDK.

    Thanks @Katana for answering my 2nd question!

    @Argyle69 I have never even tried programming haha, maybe I'll have to figure out how just so I can make that happen!
