Hey all, figured I'd come here if LED problems persisted. And they have. Anyways:
Got a 2x8GB kit of 3200mhz Trident Z RGB. Worked fine for a bit, until one got stuck in a config I never set it it. In the process of clean un/reinstalling the .08 software my second stick went dark. Granted, I did have RGB Fusion and CAM on at the time; had no idea they conflicted as I hadn't been here yet. Uninstall CAM, APP center, and RGB fusion, clean un and reinstall .08 software a few times. No luck. Somewhere around here I was having problems with the PC so I uninstalled the .08 software and everything related to it and reset the OS (wiping everything on my SSD, not refreshing). Installed .16 sometime after that (when it was released), but they were still stuck/dark. Darn. Birthday came around and I got 2 more of the exact same sticks, which listen to the software (and still do). Tried to get them all working, following the 10 steps for .16. Had to go through steps 6-10, but upon trying to start the program (after the first attempt which will always not work) it would not open. Uninstalled the software, cold rebooted, reinstalled software, cold rebooted, attempted to go through steps 1-10 again but got stuck at the same spot: after restarting AdLedService, the program would refuse to start regardless of how many times I tried. Freezes my 2 good sticks in the process, but upon a reboot I can open the software again and the 2 good sticks go back to rainbow (yay). No RGB software was present after OS reset save for CUE which I turned off while cycling the .16 software.
Tl, Dr; Had 2 sticks, both went dark/stuck. Tried un/reinstalling .08 software (before .16 came out), no luck. Had PC problems and reset the OS, making sure to wipe everything in the process (uninstalled .08 before this). Installed .16, tried for a little bit to fix bad sticks. No luck. Get 2 more of the same sticks for my birthday (now at 32GB 4x8). Decided today to try and get all working. Went to do 10 steps to reset, program would not start after restarting AsLedService (And yes I am accounting for the 1st time which always errors). Uninstalled software, cold reboot, reinstalled, cold reboot, went to do 10 steps again, stuck at same spot. Now I am here. No RGB software was present on the machine while cycling the software.

Again, all RGB controller software save for G.Skill's was not installed or disabled in the case of CUE while attempting to un-bork the sticks.
