The AORUS Command & Control center is where you will find a launch pad for the custom software features the motherboard has. That includes everything from overclocking to fan control and even toggling the OSD and Pantone color calibration. The OC Gauge provides easy viewing of hardware clocks, utilization, and temperature.

AORUS Fusion software provides RGB LED control over the keyboard and lighting zones. Each zone for LEDs (AORUS top symbol, power button, RGB array, and corner RGBs) is individually configurable. My favorite feature is that you can configure the array of RGBs to light up depending on hardware levels, such as battery level. Cooling can also be customized with up to 10 temperature selection points.

You have the option to choose between different color grades for the display (5500K, 6000K, 6500K, and 6800K), blue light killer mode, and finally Pantone X-Rite color calibrated mode.

AORUS has their own built-in audio equalizer application where you can choose between different audio modes. Realtek's audio manager is also present, and you can use that as well.

Killer's new Control Center software allows you to prioritize data streams, but if you plug into your router through the Killer LAN card and connect through WIFI, you can team the WIFI and LAN card up so that you can do all background tasks on WIFI and game on Ethernet. AORUS also has their own custom driver update program that will not only update drivers but also firmware for the different hardware features.
