MSI launches a standard for RGB LED lighting

Published by


MSI has announced the Mystic Light standard for RGB LED lighting usable on motherboards, graphics cards and LED strips inside your PC as well as RGB controllable keyboards and mice. With the help of specific motherboards you can control the RGB lights with Windows software or an APP.

This actually already is present in the currently used MSI Gaming APP on the X99A Godlike Gaming motherboards (our primary motherboard for graphics card testing). Basically it allows you to control RGB functionality for mice, keyboards, case-fans, RAM, LED strips and motherboards.

According to MSI you can use RGB LED strips with a specific header. MSI closely collaborated with pioneering brands such as Corsair, Silverstone, Cooler Master and many others to make sure their RGB featured products work flawlessly on the latest MSI GAMING motherboards.

"We at Phanteks are happy to announce that our water-cooling products and cases with RGB lighting are now compatible and certified with MSI Mystic Light. We are excited to have worked with MSI to bring Mystic Light ready products from Phanteks to the market."
-Ryan, Marketing Director of Phanteks.
