Important features needed
 
Why is there no "pause iCUE" setting somewhere? It would be really useful a thing which immediately put all devices to a "default profile" and stops all the iCUE processes and services to 0% CPU. I absolutely need this feature when I need to use CPU-intensive applications or games and I need to kick-out unneeded processes, but iCUE keeps restarting and when I finally manage to kick everything out a crappy distracting rainbow effect appears.

Also, there is still no "default profile" feature which kicks in when the computer is starting or is in a locked state. I'm really tired of that rainbow animation when iCUE is not connected to the LNP. When is this feature coming? In the very first versions of iCUE I remember all the leds were used to simply shut down and I preferred this behavior to the rainbow.

PLEASE. I'M REALLY SICK OF THE RAINBOW EFFECT.


[EDIT 27 nov 2018] Corsair listened to us and it appears there will be hardware lighting in 3.10! Finally!! :eek: :praise:



I'm posting a quick list of users who also complained about the rainbow effect issue:
This can be called a bug or an usability problem, but this actually IS a serious issue and it can be seen that a lot of users are demanding for an appropriate fix.

Like I did, you can also try to help to solve the issue by opening a support ticket like this:

LNP and Commander PRO default profile

To the attention of Corsair Support

I've bought these RGB products:
- 3x LL120 Fans with Lighting Node PRO
- RGB Pro Expansion Kit (four led strips)
- Vengeance RGB Ram

I'm using them with the official iCUE software from the Corsair site
However, I'm experiencing an issue which seriously compromises the overall experience with these products.

If I boot my PC or I lock it (with Win+L shortcut) or I boot any Operating System which doesn't have iCUE software installed, these devices are disconnected from iCUE and display a default too bright full rainbow effect. I really don't like this effect and I want to avoid it by putting some other RGB effect. There appear to be no way to set a default profile to show in these cases (unlike the keyboards or the mouses like Strafe and Scimitar). There is even no way to turn it off.

I've also illustrated the issue in the Corsair User Forum where I found many people having the same problem and complaining about it. There are many threads about that, and you can find an example in this link: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=180506

I ask the Corsair Support to address this issue to the development department in order to appropriately fix this issue by giving the user the ability to set a default RGB profile for the abovementioned products.

Kind regards

Agreed! There's a 3 page thread about it

Wait, is this a joke? Are you kidding me, right? Did you even read my post? :sigh!:

I totally agree with this post, I praise for Corsair to listen to us

If your going to do something CPU insensitive then exit iCUE. Software does not work the way you think it does. Its not a movie you cant just pause and un-pause. With that many devices there will always be an some CPU usage.

I can't simply exit iCUE.
  1. Corsair Service still randomly uses CPU. (it's closed now and it's using between 0,5% and 1% of CPU, apparently for no reason. Trust me and check it by yourself, it's still using system resources for no reason)
  2. If I exit iCUE I get the retarded unicorn effect which annoys me (Also check this, please)

Do you like the rainbow effect? Good, I'm really happy for you.

BUT I HATE IT

Greybeard 08-22-2018 02:19 PM

I don't personally like the rainbow effect myself (it's a personal preference for the most part), but I love the fact iCUE has endless lighting effect customization.

To stop iCUE from using 0.5% of your CPU resources, quit iCUE then "end task" Corsair.Service under task manager.

This statement simply means nothing. So what do you think about the rainbow behavior when iCUE is not connected to the LNP? What are you going to do about this?

Yeah, it's very easy: left click on iCUE icon, click on "Exit", open task manager, go to Processes, find Corsair.Service, then kill it. Pretty straightforward and easy to the user. And then enjoy the rainbow effect!!1!

Now seriously: are you people of Corsair going to do something about these two big issues?

Greybeard 08-24-2018 12:20 PM

Actually, to a good amount of people, that statement make a lot of sense. Because like what I said, it's a personal preference. You may or may not like it. In my case, the rainbow doesn't really bother me.

Calling it an issue would be a stretch. Although it would be nice to have an option where you can toggle on/off for the default rainbow effect. It's been brought up in the past, but was never addressed since it was never considered an issue, and plus we rarely ran into any complaints on this particular subject.

JimmyRappit 08-24-2018 02:36 PM

We should have an option for default lighting.

Really?

Just to let you know, here's a quick list of users who complained:

[EDIT] List moved to the first post of this thread

I can find other complains if you want, but I know you are aware of the search function of this forum. Call this a bug or an usability problem, but this actually IS a serious issue and you can actually see a lot of users demanding for an appropriate fix.

Napascj 08-24-2018 03:20 PM

You can add me to that list. Nothing worse than turning on your sleek, custom built PC to a full rainbow effect. I agree the customisation is great but at the right time. I'd still like to select what appears during boot-up.

Greybeard 08-24-2018 07:37 PM

I'm not disagreeing with your lighting personal preference, having an option to disable the rainbow default lighting would be nice. I even said it myself that I'd prefer to have that feature. But not having that feature means that that it is an issue. Not having that option does not affect the KB's performance nor it's overall functionality.

I totally know where you guys are coming from, but when I said that rainbow default lighting profile doesn't really bother "A good amount of people" I'm referring to thousands of Commander PRO, LNP, HD fans, LL fans verified owners that either love it or couldn't careless that their system defaults to rainbow when exiting iCUE.
