Synchronizing ZOTAC FireStorm Spectra with iCUE

I'm creating a utility to sync my GPU lighting with iCUE.

 

Does anyone know of anything that exists for this? I don't want to reinvent the wheel, I just couldn't find anything.

 

If anyone is interested in this, I'd be happy to share what I set up. If anyone has a ZOTAC GPU, please post, because it'd be helpful to get in touch with people who have different GPUs.

The SDK for iCue has yet to be released, unless they did it and know one told me. It is nice to see people develop things, though sadly people don't seem all that interested in being cool and trying these tools out. I wrote something similar to control the RGB for my Gigabyte Motherboard, though don't know if anyone has used it other than me and one other person.

 

When it comes to syncing what I recommend is to sync your iCue profiles with games/processes. Then write your tool to set color based off the same process, that way they will sync indirectly of each other.

SDK for iCUE is being worked on still. Similar projects have been kicked off, but for ASUS AURA and Gigabyte RGB Fusion. I haven't seen anything yet for MSI Mystic Light and other board partner RGB lighting.

CJ are you referring to projects being kicked off inside Corsair or you referring to people like me who do open source work?

Thanks for the suggestion! I'm not trying to do something insane, it's just that I have several profiles that I switch between with a key on my k65, and one of those profiles has all of the lighting across my system turn off. However, my GPU operates independently of all of this, so it's a bit annoying. I decided to do this project just because I'd at least like to be able to turn off all of my lights without having to open the utility and adjust things over and over.

 

I'm going for an executable that can be triggered to switch the lights, with an argument to pass in to specify which "profile" to switch to (spectra doesn't have profiles). I think this is flexible enough to integrate well with iCUE and even used elsewhere. Though, as you said, it doesn't seem like there are a lot of interested parties. I suppose the small pool of people who are cursing at ZOTAC for having to switch on and off their lights are perhaps not running rampant across the internet making posts.

So Cue sdk includes support for icue.

 

I'm not so sure. Corsair has said that an iCUE SDK is still unreleased. In any case, while I look forward to its availability, I've no necessity for it in this project.

I am sure.

A) I was told this by Corsair James.

B) I've downloaded it.

 

Go to the downloads page and search for SDK (like I said). It's there, version 3.0.171, updated 5/29/2018.

 

The Corsair CUE SDK Lighting Effects hasn't been updated. But that uses the CUE SDK.
