DDR5-5600 Dominator - Periodically stops cycling colours

Recommended Posts

I've got a 2x16GB kit - CMT32GX5M2X5600C36

I keep noticing that with a scene colour set in icue, "Rainbow Wave" for example, that the colours just lockup and get stuck.  I have to exit icue, and restart, for the colour cycling to work again.

Everything up to date with regards to updates or firmware.

Any ideas anyone?


I already did the SPD=WRITE change in my BIOS for icue to even detect the RAM.

Any other RGB or monitoring software running?  The ‘freeze’ is likely the Corsair Lighting Service crashing. Software conflict is most common, but not exclusively the underlying cause.

Make sure you aren't attempting to run the Asus Armoury Crate software at the same time as iCUE, even for a few moments, as it will also attempt to connect to and control RGB memory installed in your Asus motherboard preventing the iCUE software from being able to maintain the connection.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, but I only run exclusively icue to control all the Corsair ecosystem in my box.

Armoury crate is a mess, and i've never installed it.  I don't run any other monitoring or RGB controlling software.

All the other Corsair device RGB lighting works flawlessly, it's just this RAM kit.


For reference, this is my icue main page:

I have excactly the same issue sinse the last Icue update - RAM is in the Raindrop Mode - Clolour Blue and Pink.

When my PC is on Load (CPU) then the Dominator Kit changes colours randomly - also the Mode is more a 80's I blik everywhere then the adjusted Raindrop mode in Blue and Pink.

Reinstalld Icue / Changed Hardware with another Pair of Dominator - still same issue.
