Finally, we will no longer need separate RGB customization software for our Lian Li PC case, MSI keyboard, ASRock motherboard, AMD CPU fan, or Zotac graphics card. Razer Chroma will support all these manufacturers and more.

If you're a desktop PC enthusiast, then you'll likely be familiar with at least one software for controlling RGB lights. In fact, you may be familiar with several. Seemingly every manufacturer has its own proprietary solution for controlling the RGB lights on its graphics cards, RAM modules, motherboards, fans, PC cases, keyboards, mice, monitors, and practically any other accessory we can think of. Wouldn't it be great to have one software for all?

Razer has wisely stepped up to the plate to offer its Chroma software across more devices outside of just the Razer family. Chroma is known for its cloud-enabled settings that allow owners to set and save specific colors and behaviors and then load them onto different Razer machines. While the feature requires a Chroma account, it nonetheless gives a sense of unification amongst all your Razer PCs and accessories. From here on out, this same feature should work not just between Razer devices, but also between devices from Biostar, MSI, AMD, AOC, Lian Li, and more.

We absolutely love this move because it should make life easier for enthusiasts who are constantly jumping between PCs and different accessories. It remains to be seen how this deal would impact the existing RGB customization software from the list of 25 manufacturers. A number of popular manufacturers like Corsair, Asus, Logitech, or Dell Alienware are notably absent from the list for the time being.

The list of 25 brands is included below:

Aerocool Cougar Phanteks 

AMD Ducky Silverstone 

Antec EKWB Teamgroup 

AOC GEIL Thermaltake 

Apacer G-skill Viewsonic 

ASROCK Lian Li Wooting  

Biostar MSI Zadak 

Bitspower Patriot Zotac 

Colorful

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
