True Color – allows you to adjust the color mode of the monitor. Preset profiles are available: comfortable, gaming, movie theater, default, or custom, which you can configure yourself. Previously discussed in detail the monitor color settings in Windows 10.
Mystic Light is a very useful section for turning the backlight on and off. All supported backlit devices will be displayed here. You can configure both a separate color style for different components, and synchronize their backlight.
Now you need to register your device. This will give you several advantages during use. In the My device section, you can register it automatically. The program itself will detect, for example, your motherboard, you only need to agree to the addition.
Benefits include obtaining registration of a device warranty, news about promotions and events, device maintenance and support, and the ability to view registered MSI devices. Additionally, after registering the product, it will be possible to use automatic software updates.
It allows you to scan installed software and, if necessary, install its update. Everything happens automatically. You just need to confirm the update.
Rebooting the system is required to complete updating the BIOS, drivers or software. Do not turn off the system during the installation process. If it has already begun, wait for it to complete.
At first glance, the MSI Dragon Center program is not easy to learn. Although after several days of use you get used to the update. Previously used ASRock software. I hope for a quick update and refinement of at least the MSI Dragon Center user interface.
If it is supported by you, you can try installing Creator Center. The possibilities are the same, the interface is a bit nicer. For me, the most important thing is the control of the illumination of components and a quick view of the temperature of the system components. This is and works in normal mode.
