  • [Trident Z RGB Software] Installation - Unblock before extracting

    If the installer is not completing properly, not detecting modules, or giving errors, please make sure that the *.exe installer file is unzipped to a known location, like your desktop.

    If you are using the built-in Windows File Explorer to extract the files, please make sure to "Unblock" the ZIP file first. To do so, right click on the ZIP file and choose "Properties". Under the General tab, make sure that "Unblock" is checked at the bottom. After clicking "OK", extract the contents to a folder for the installation. This will ensure that the installer is properly extracted for installation. See the screenshot below for the location of the "Unblock" checkbox.

    Same for WinRAR

    I can tell you that you need to "unblock" as well with WinRAR.

    I really wonder if you have posted that before my replies I haven't seen it and replied it to all the "issue" posts. Well nevermind if you used my information, most important is that this issue is solved.

      I've done all this, and every other suggestion to get these RAM sticks to work. Even the newest Asrock BIOS update didn't help. The only way the modules are detected, and I can change the LED's is to run them in single channel mode, or put them in slots that causes my system to crash for dual channel. I'm pretty much left to buying another kit so all 4 DIM's are filled to get this to work. But I"m not going to pay those insane prices just to control some RGB stuff.
