Default It's working

I think it was my own mistake.
The MAC asks you to enter a code on the K63 and then press ENTER -- I didn't press enter the first few times

Now it works and I'm typing this response

Is it working properly?

Working fine for me as well. I've paired it with a Mid-2012 MBP running El Capitan (10.11.6) and a 2017 MBP running High Sierra (10.13.3). Sadly, I can't change the lighting effects unless I connect to a Windows PC (I've done so with my home K63, but not with my work K63), but after I've done so, they still work when I use the keyboard on Mac.

One quirk about the bluetooth (which I've found with various bluetooth devices), is that is has a hard time pairing in an area with high interference, but once it's paired, it functions just fine. For both my work K63 and my bluetooth trackpad, I had to take the devices home to pair them, but then was able to use them in the office once they were paired with no issues.

Just curious, I am a Mac user myself, why would anyone want to use this K63 when you have the Apple Wireless Keyboard? I have it because of the Corsair One.

:) I had used the Apple Magic Keyboard for a while but in my opinion it is nowhere near as pleasant to type as the on, even though the K63 Wireless is using RED swithces
