As you can see, there is little cohesion with the components. My AIO and keyboard are Corsair, my mouse and webcam are logitech, my GPU and Mobo are MSI, and my RAM is G.Skill. Furthermore, I now believe the RAM was intel-optimized so only one stick properly syncs with the motherboard. (I have attempted reseating it to no avail)

The keyboard, case fans, mouse and mousepad generally have no issue with color control. The other RGB components have issues however. after every login or restart I need to load up either aura or the g.skill software for the ram and then ICUE for the AIO. If I don't do this, one stick of the RAM will fade in and out orange and the AIO pump will go rainbow. Furthermore the RGB logo on the side of 1080 will stay solid white.

Ideally I would like a program with which I can control the lighting on the RAM, GPU, AIO and even the Mobo at once and save the settings so they don't revert on waking up or restarting the PC. I understand this may not work for the RAM and that is acceptable; It's what I get for buying Intel RAM for Ryzen. Also, as a side note, I would rather it didn't trigger Easy Anticheat every time I try to play a game.

I have tried ICUE, Ryzen Master, Aura, and MSI MysticLight.

Thanks for any suggestions/feedback!

IS this your question:

Ideally I would like a program with which I can control the lighting on the RAM, GPU, AIO and even the Mobo at once

what happens when you mix hardware with different rgb software? Your build

Think you need to figure out what can you live with that is RGB connected. Uninstall the unneeded rgb software.

I have not read of any magic software to sync up many different rgb software. I dont think it is possible unless you go through the hassel you told us and never turn off your system when everything possible is running at one time :)

edit: can you share an image of your rgb connected the best that you can?
