Two things to look at: 1) Vengeance RAM "settings". Is software control enabled? This is a big CPU drain and they are working on it, but it's more than I can live with. If you uncheck you can still pick from any of the presets or static/multicolor, but you can't run 9 different light waves in an overlapping layer.

2) The iCUE app uses GPU resources for rendering all those nice little lights, graphs, etc. When the app window is closed, GPU usage will be zero. However, it does chew up quite a bit on certain tabs within the app. The keyboard page is a big one. 100+ different objects and if you throw some color waves up there, then it uses a lot of resources. I tend not to leave it on the keyboard page unless I am working there. Regardless, the GPU part might only be an issue if you are using multiple monitors and keep it on the keyboard page showing off your work while gaming on the primary.
