How do I change my Red Devil RGB?

Changing the RGB lighting on your Red Devil graphics card is easy to do once you know how. In this guide, I’ll walk you through the step-by-step process to customize the lighting to your preference using the Radeon Software utility.

RGB lighting has become a popular way to customize and personalize your gaming PC. With RGB capable components like the Red Devil graphics card, you can make your rig reflect your own unique style. The vibrant and dynamic lighting effects can completely transform the aesthetics of your build.

The Red Devil cards from PowerColor feature RGB lighting on the fans and along the top edge of the card. By default, this lighting is configured in a basic red color theme, matching the Red Devil branding. But you’re not limited to just red. The RGB LEDs can display a wide spectrum of colors and effects to liven up your system’s interior.


To customize the RGB on your Red Devil graphics card, you’ll need the following:

  • Red Devil graphics card with RGB lighting
  • Radeon Software utility (installed automatically with graphics driver)
  • USB connection from PC to graphics card (for RGB control)

As long as your Red Devil card has onboard RGB LEDs, you’ll be able to control the lighting through software. The Radeon utility is included with the graphics driver package and provides full control over the RGB components.

Additionally, your Red Devil card must be connected to your motherboard via a USB 2.0 internal header cable. This allows communication between the software and the graphics card to change the RGB lighting effects.

Installing Radeon Software

The first step is to download and install the latest Radeon Software package, available from the AMD website. Radeon Software provides a unified utility for managing AMD graphics cards, including driver updates, performance monitoring, gaming optimizations, and RGB lighting control.

Here are the steps to install Radeon Software:

  1. Go to the AMD Driver & Support page and enter your graphics card info or automatically detect it.
  2. Download the latest Radeon Software installer.
  3. Run the installer and follow the on-screen instructions.
  4. Restart your system when prompted.

Once installed, the Radeon Software app will automatically launch and you will see the home screen. This is where you can access the various utilities for your graphics card, including the RGB lighting controls.

Connecting RGB USB Cable

With the software ready, the next step is to connect the USB cable from your motherboard to your Red Devil graphics card. This cable enables communication between the card’s RGB LEDs and the Radeon Software.

Here is how to connect the RGB cable:

  1. Locate an open USB 2.0 header on your motherboard.
  2. Connect the male end of the included USB cable to the header.
  3. Route the cable to your graphics card in your case.
  4. Plug the female end into the RGB header on the Red Devil card.

Consult your motherboard manual for the location of the USB 2.0 headers. Make sure the cable is securely installed at both ends. The graphics card will now be able to receive signals from the software to control the RGB lighting.

Using Radeon Software for RGB Control

With everything installed and connected, it’s time to dive into the Radeon Software and customize your Red Devil’s RGB lighting effects.

Here are the steps to modify the RGB in Radeon Software:

  1. Launch Radeon Software and go to the Lighting tab.
  2. Select your Red Devil graphics card.
  3. Click on the various lighting zones to customize colors and effects.
  4. Adjust speeds, intensities, and styles as desired.
  5. Sync effects across multiple zones.
  6. Click Apply to save changes.

The Lighting tab gives you control over each LED zone, allowing you to select custom colors, patterns, speeds, and other options. You can choose different effects for the card’s logo, backplate, and fans. There are also preset modes like Rainbow, Music, and Color Cycle to quickly apply dynamic lighting.

Lighting Zone Default Color Customization Options
Logo Red Full RGB spectrum, effects, speed
Backplate Red Full RGB spectrum, effects, speed
Fans Red Full RGB spectrum, effects, speed

The table above summarizes the different zones and customization capabilities. Once you dial in your preferred lighting configuration, click Apply and you’re all set! Your Red Devil graphics card will now display the immersive RGB effects that you configured.

Other Important RGB Considerations

Here are some other important tips to keep in mind when modifying your Red Devil’s RGB lighting:

  • Updates to Radeon Software may reset the RGB settings back to default.
  • Make sure the USB cable is properly connected each time.
  • Check for newer versions of Radeon Software for more effects.
  • Sync your lighting with other RGB components using the same software.
  • Some games/apps can override lighting control when running.

It’s a good idea to double check your configured lighting effects after major software updates or changes to your system. The lighting may need to be reapplied each time. You can also install other RGB compatible components like RAM or case fans and synchronize the lighting across all parts using Radeon Software.

With full RGB customization capabilities at your fingertips, you can deck out your Red Devil graphics card with a stunning array of colors and effects. Using Radeon Software, the process is straightforward once everything is installed and connected. Take the time to play around with different settings and themes to find your perfect lighting personality!


Customizing the RGB lighting on your Red Devil GPU allows you to add your own style and flair to your gaming rig. With the onboard LEDs connected to Radeon Software, you have granular control over colors, effects, and lighting zones.

The key steps are installing Radeon Software, connecting the USB cable, and using the Lighting tab to modify the logo, backplate, and fan RGB as desired. Save your theme and enjoy the mesmerizing lighting display. Complement your Red Devil card with other RGB components for a fully immersive effect.

So unlock the full potential of your graphics card both performance and aesthetics-wise. With vibrant RGB lighting effects, you can transform the look of your system and match the colors to your mood or style.
