RGB lighting is no doubt what modern PC builders look for when picking parts for their brand-new rig. It’s sometimes even the deciding factor, as aesthetics seem to be very important for modern builds.
ASRock being the popular brand it is, it’s safe to say that many users opt for their products, but before you grab one of their motherboards for yourself, it’s best to get to know how good their Polychrome RGB Sync is, and most importantly, how to acquire it.

How To Download ASRock Polychrome RGB
The best way to download any brand’s software is through the official website, and ASRock Polychrome is not an exception. This ensures that you always get the most up-to-date files that are safe to use and won’t harm your hardware components in any way.
However, when it comes to downloading the ASRock Polychrome RGB software, quite a bit of users found it difficult to navigate through the website and find the right files for their system, which is why we created a step-by-step guide to get you through the process with ease.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Open ASRock’s official website in your browser of choice.
- From the top-bar menu, choose Products and then click on Motherboards.
- Find your motherboard either by typing in the name of the product in the search bar or by using the filter system.
- Once you see yours, click on it and the website will redirect you to a page dedicated to that specific product.
- Then, scroll down a bit until you see the horizontal bar with different sections. Click on Support which is right next to “Specifications” and “Where To Buy”.
- Finally, click on Download which redirects to the section where you can download all available software for your specific model.
- Scroll down until you find the ASRock Polychrome RGB version and then choose your preferred download server. The download should then start.
Once you downloaded and saved the files on your system, simply unpack the archived file using a free unzipping utility such as WinRAR. Then, run the exe and go on with the installation setup, which is quite simple to follow.
Once the process completes, make sure to run the software as administrator, as some users have reported that it doesn’t work properly when the user doesn’t have administrator privileges.
An important thing to note is that ASRock’s RGB software seems to conflict with other RGB programs that affect the same components. So, if you already have an RGB control program installed and in use, we recommend disabling it before using Polychrome RGB.
Now that everything is correctly set up, let’s take a look at what the ASRock RGB LED Utility has to offer once you start using it.
Using ASRock’s RGB Utility On Windows
When it comes to aesthetics, the best way to achieve a good look for your build is by choosing many RGB components, as doing so means having a lot of control over every part of your case.
But, all those lights turn into art only when paired with the right RGB software, and for ASRock products, that’s the Polychrome Sync.
Like most other RGB control software, this one offers numerous lightning options for each component connected to the motherboard. The list includes breathing effects, cycling, static, strobe, spring, neon, water, and more.
The interface is easy to navigate through and allows for easily picking colors out of a nicely-displayed palette.
For most effects that include dynamic changes of brightness, the software also allows choosing the speed at which the change happens.
The user can either choose to select a different effect and color for each component separately or choose to sync them all together for a more complete effect.
If you don’t want to bother with customizing the lights, you can choose one of the many available presets within the software to get things up and running within seconds.
ASRock’s Polychrome utility also supports Chroma Connect, in case you have Razer devices you wish to include in the setup.
