NZXT HUE 2 Ambient RGB Lighting Kit Review

👤by Matthew Hodgson Comments 📅29-04-19
NZXT provide extensive installation instructions, with screen size recommendations for both 16:9 and 21:9 monitors.

Thanks to sticky backing on all of the RGB strips, installing them to the back of the monitor is a breeze. Each strip locks into the next with ease thanks to the 4-pin connections. For our ASUS ROG PG278 we used a 250mm and 300mm strip along the top and bottom and a 300mm strip up the sides. Of course, in NZXTs instructions, they’ve used a monitor with a completely flat back; our ASUS monitor is far from flat on the back. This posed a couple of issues with aligning the strips but overall, thanks to the extreme stickiness of the strips, was easy enough.

We then mount the RGB Hub to the back of the monitor and connect up the wires. If you’re lucky enough to have a USB hub built into your monitor, you will be able to get away with only a power cable leaving the back of the monitor, helping to keep things tidy and ordered.

And then the finished look below.

Once installed onto the rear of the monitor, you then need to calibrate the strips with the NZXT CAM software. This process is incredibly straight forward with the software illuminating individual strips and then asking you to plot the strip on the screen. This takes no more than 30 seconds and, once done, should never need to be repeated unless you move the strips.
