As you mentioned, CUE does not support Mac and thus you wouldn't have macros or be able to have effects and such.



However there is an unofficial driver for it that supports both Linux and Mac, you can check it in this sticky thread: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=133929


The Strafe RGB is included in the supported devices list and this is a part of the first post from that thread, it supports almost everything that CUE does (except a couple of things):

Supported devices:

K65 RGB keyboard

K70 RGB and non-RGB keyboards

K95 RGB and non-RGB keyboards

Strafe RGB and non-RGB keyboards

M65 RGB mouse

Scimitar RGB mouse

The "Gaming" and "Vengeance" models are both supported.


Supported operating systems:

Linux (Ubuntu, Mint, etc)

Mac OS X v10.9 - v10.11 (Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan)


Currently SUPPORTED features:

RGB lighting and animations

Reactive lighting

Key rebinding (with a limited number of special functions)

K95 G-key support

Multiple independent binding and lighting modes
