Long time iCue user, new to MacOS

Hi guys,

 

Due to a change in my work circumstances recently I find myself setting up a Macbook Air (2015 vintage).

 

Have been playing with iCue and fans and AIOs in PCs for years and have a new custom liquid cooling PC build underway which is keeping me busy, but for now I just have my K95 Plat keyboard I am using on my Macbook.

 

My initial experience is that that it seems to be a fair way below the offering on the Windows platform and I don't know if the iCue MacOS software is still new, or if its my noob status on MacOS.

 

My initial observation is that I appear to have to manually start iCue every time I reboot my Mac in order for the keyboard lighting to kick in. The keyboard itself works from the start, but the lighting is off until I manually open iCue. Is this me or the software> (I am quite happy for it to be me me, that's likely to be a much easier fix!!!!)

To add to my comments above, I have just noticed my iCue version number:

I am running 3.38.61

After following another thread and checking the Corsair website I note that there are 2 versions available - the one I have, as well as 4.9.350, which seems a significantly higher number. When I hit the "Check for update" button on my Mac it tells me that I have the latest version.

 

I assume that the 4.xxx is the beta stream ?

 

Should I do it??

Wow, this is one of the quietest forums I've been in in a while !!!!

 

I was experiencing random hangs with the older version of iCue I was running (3.38.61) so I bit the bullet and upgraded to 4.9.350 following a link in another thread. Will see how this version performs, but the previous version was not reliable and I know Corsair is better than that so here's hoping for a better experience this time around !!

What MacOS version are you running currently. The iCUE 4.9.350 is our newest iCUE build but you are not able to update to it from iCUE 3.38.xx and would require you to manually download and install.

 

In the iCUE 4 software there is an toggle in the settings to start on system startup. I believe there is one in iCUE 3 for MacOS though I am not 100% sure.
