The 4 major integrated RGB systems are, in order of popularity: Asus's Aura Sync, Aorus' RGB Fusion, MSI's Mystic Light, and Asrock's Polychrome. From first to last, they're viewed as slightly less customizable, with a somewhat smaller ecosystem — but those factors can and have changed as the technologies have developed. What you likely won't ever see is more than one of those brands making their systems compatible with one another. While the Asus boards can sometimes be the prettiest, this generation of their normally awesome mainboards apparently skimps on the quality in important parts, for example the CPU voltage regulator modules. That's a big downside. If you're not worried about overheating or voltage spikes, and you really want a good-looking case, you may want to consider them, but stick to a high-end model. The AsRocks are are incredibly durable, but they don't have the greatest compatibility range, as far as RGB accessories go. MSI also makes some fantastic models, performance-wise, although many users find their control suite simplistic and a bit underwhelming. Gigabyte products, particularly the Aorus line, appear to strike a good balance between hardware capability and LED attractiveness. They also tend to have multiple onboard accent lights, also, they or the AsRocks will be best for overclocking.
