A move to the new CUE forum would be nice.

Edit: Thanks!

Keep up with the suggestions. I'll record all of them. I know from an initial read that some of these won't be possible without a large overhaul/hardware limitations. However, nothing is impossible in the future.

Make 16.8 mil color setting part of the mode lighting settings so that it can be changed as needed per light pattern to account for flickering in some lighting scenarios. This would be much better than it being a global setting like it is now.

1. Profile Settings -> Link profile to program - must be multiple programs selection, not only one program.

2. Settings for state Lock keys (Win, Num, etc.) - no change (default), ON, OFF. For example -
Office (default) profile: Windows key lock - OFF, Num lock - ON;
Game profile: Windows key lock - ON, Num lock - OFF;

Please keep the feedback coming. I'm making a list now to forward to the dev teams.

Corsair this is indeed a great keyboard, but are you in future going to release a fimware flash utility that allows the end user to calibrate the white levels of the keys?

these keyboards really need it, just a small utility with RGB sliders to set white levels of individual keys, then flash the settings to the keyboard so they stay there permanently.

Also adding HDD/SSD activity led function to any key (keys) to the keyboard would be great too.

Saw this on the pcmasterrace subreddit. I don't think something like that is currently possible.
Basically set colors for specific keys and using the existing effects to turn those on and off.

This would be a great tool. The differences in white between different LEDs is slight, but noticeable.

Please add the request to lock profiles while process is active when using auto switching. For a gaming keyboard it is "somewhat frustrating" for auto switching to be incompatible with overlays like Overwolf and Steam chat and any other process that may decide to temporarily draw focus from the game process.

Thanks mate yea i think its a good idea, shouldnt be too hard for corsair to do either really.

We need to sort out the keyboards problems before adding any other features

Just done a quick mockup, something simple like this is all it needs.

1. As already suggested, allow linking a profile to multiple programs. However, also allow linking to entire multiple folders (for example, Games folder) which will initialize the profile on any program execution there, with an option to exclude files for the said folder. If another profile exists and links to a specific program in an already linked folder, it will take priority over the folder-linked profile and run instead.

2. Allow assignments for key combinations (for example, assign an action for Alt+1, etc).

3. Add an option to automatically turn off lighting when the display turns off/sleeps, and restore when it wakes up.

It was a cake walk to accomplish, as they provide a few .h header files and a few functions to set an RGB grid to the keyboard. Same idea as what we made for the K70 RGB with the reverse engineering method but a lot less work (at the expense of being rather slow to update and Windows-only). If Corsair does release an SDK it would be nice to be able to also interact with CUE (apply new effects as layers on top of already set effects, for instance). This is a big downside to Razer's SDK, it does not integrate with their software at all. I have a feeling game developers will be adding custom lighting to games soon for Razer users, but I doubt they will do the same with only a community-made reverse engineered SDK for Corsair. Wait around too long and Corsair could lose out on their upper hand in the RGB market.
I would like to see this sdk become a reality. link to your RGB SDK?

Yes James put a star by this idea. Guessing and checking with 512 colors is ok, trying that with 16.8 mill is stupid at best lol.

+1 This. Finding good colors for static color profiles is VERY tedious.
