In the bootmapper, I can adjust the brightness of the underglow, but only a limited amount. After a certain point, the brightness does not change as I move the slider up and it is clearly not as bright as it should be.
Even when I turned down the number of led’s they still aren’t any brighter for some reason. Even if they were, I would probably keep more of them on but have them dimmer. If I was to turn it down to the minimum 8 led’s it would only light up the ones on the top row instead of staggering 4 on the top and 4 on the bottom, which there is no option to do.
I am at college right now and my board is at home (and not quite working properly) so keep in mind that I am answering this as a “would you rather” than something from actual experience and something that I can test out right now.
