How to control RGB leds of RAM/memory sticks ?

So far I tried:
1. iCue, doesn't seem to work.
2. Asus Armory Crate + RGB Memory Plugin for ASUS AURA SYNC, doesn't seem to work.
3. ASRock Motherboard Utility doesn't have RGB options.
4. ASRock Polychrome RGB (seems to do something, but mostly turns the RAM modules into one color... ?!?)

Are there any other options ?

Also is there a way to get the original rainbow effect without restarting the system or removing the ASRock software ?

The following happened:

I installed iCue yesterday but did not reboot the system, rebooted it today.
iCue did not seem to detect the RAM lights.

Installed all the software above.

Went into bios changed nothing.

Went into polychrome RGB, tweaked some settings.

Did two reboots.

iCue seems to detect the RAM lights now...

Started polychrome rgb, a red arrow appeared in iCue after starting it again.

After a while a hint message shows up. iCue stopped receiving data from memory ram etc.

Rebooted it again. This time I did not start polychrome rgb, auto start is on off.

Now iCue is properly detecting the ram and I can play with the lights !

Pretty cool !

Problem seems solved, but too early to tell, I will experiment some more with these fun lights ! ;)

Hmmm the irony is the lights looked best without all this software haha !

I think without the software it does something special !

The effects rainbow and such get close, but it's not quite the same hmmm...

Kinda sucks a bit, I want the original ! ;)

I guess disabling iCue from starting up might fix it and give original lightning.

Though I do see how some more "advanced" lighting could be created by "stacking layers"... with each layer a dimm could be selected...

I play with that first, after that I want the original lighting back ! ;)

OK, the non-software lighting is definetly different and much better/more interesting to look it, glad it's back ! ;) =D
