  1. Hey there everyone! DevBiker from deep in the heart of Texas and I'm just starting down the path of rebuilding my rig into a Corsair 7000 series case. I've gotten my hands on the iCUE 7000X RGB in white as well as the front and top panels for the 7000D Airflow editions (also in white, though black may have been an interesting contrast). I do plan on playing around with it a bit ... to rearrange things a bit and rebuilt it several times, looking at different options. Over the next month or so - before I do the actual build - I'll be playing around with the case and measuring things and seeing how different things may or may not fit. I'm not going to go over all the marketing fluff - except for a single Obligatory Marketing Image - because y'all can read all of that stuff on all the various reviews that are out there. So with that ... this should also be a discussion. What ideas do y'all have for the 7000? I've already talked with one other forum member that was looking to put a monitor screen on the PSU window and I got some measurements for that. You'll that info in the FAQ as well (under PSU installation) I'm using the new Album feature for the FAQ; comments are enabled for each photo so you can ask questions there or here. It's best to view the Album by Caption. I like the List View, personally. Table of Contents - each link points to the first image in the 'section' . 0001: Intro, Marketing Image, in the Box 0002: Devices, including the Commander Core XT 0003: Motherboard Mounts 0004: PSU Shroud, including vertical GPU mounting 0005: PSU Installation 0006: Drive Cages and SSD Mounts 0007: Front Fans and Radiators 0008: Side Fans and Radiators 0009: Top Fans and Radiators 0010: Outer Glass and Panels (In Progress ...) Corsair 7000 Series Cases / HydroX Options : This is an ongoing list of different configurations with HydroX and the 7000 series cases. Diagrams: RGB Diagram for 7000X with 2x XR5 420mm Much thanks to the folks at Corsair as well for helping with this by answering questions and providing a LOT of goodies for this build!! Links to the 7000 Series Product Pages: iCUE 7000X RGB Tempered Glass in Black and White. 7000D AIRFLOW in Black and White. The system that will be going through this will be my main rig: Asus Zenith II Extreme ThreadRipper 3970X with HydroX XC9 8x 16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB @ 3466Ghz nVidia RTX 3090 Founder's Edition with HydroX XG7 (I paid MSRP for this!) MP600 1TB (System Drive) MP600 1TB [This will be replaced with an MP600 Core 2TB] MP510 960GB [This will be replaced with an MP600 Core 2TB] Sabrent Rocket Q 2TB Seagate Ironwolf NAS 10TB I have lots of RGB in there (of course) but all that's likely going to be replaced. I've even got 4 LL140 RGB fans in there from way back just after the LLs actually launched ... and they are still going. Those things have seen some use. On of them even has an RGB cable that I had to cut and re-crimp because I snipped the wire. I've got Commander Pros, Lighting Node Pros and Fan Hubs that are around 4 years old or so ... still going. Of course there's gonna be a ton of Corsair in here because that's just how I roll. None of y'all are going to be surprised by that in the least.

  2. I run the Pro on balanced not quiet and its still silent. I run my fans on silent though and you cannot hear anything. Cappelix looks amazing but the noise is terrible so had to go.

  3. Since the problem is known, I would have expected the support to react faster. I have received the confirmation mail, but in my account it says that I do not have a support ticket. Apparently the service is as bad as the software they deliver. If the headphones don't work again on Tuesday, I will send them back. Unfortunately, I already have to give a bad rating because the description makes everyone fall into the trap, even if the headphones are actually good.

  4. That is the latest firmware for your headset unless you have another Slipstream capable device and wish to use the multipoint feature. If you are not being prompted for the 5.xx firmware that means you do not have any other multipoint capable devices and therefore you will not be prompted for the update.

  5. Pumps and fans don’t count revolutions in the same way. The CUE software is using a divider of 2 to turn the raw count back into the expected RPM. So CUE is correct, but you can always take half of the raw MB header value into the number. There was a lot more that went along with this, but I’m now assuming that is just a background picture and we’re talking about the H100i XT and not an XD5 custom loop.

  8. Please Provide Firmware update to have the elite line of PUMP to spin lower than 2200 RPM. It is way too loud for normal pc usage. I have found that Platinum line of AIOs also had this issue and was fixed via firmware update - link below https://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=182257&highlight=corsair+platinum+pump&page=3 As a reference H150I Pro RGB (Asetek pump) which I also own have quiet profile of 1100 RPM which is silent. thank you.

  9. Take your time and evaluate what you have. There won’t be any additional hardware required if you add a different fan type. If you really like the LL, then it may be enjoyable to add them to the front, but then I suspect it won’t be long until you want 2 more for the top. On the other hand, one more SP-Elite makes the case uniform from front to back. You’ll have to see.

  10. I am not sure what you have or if you have anything yet. This thread was about using the SP-Pro and the consequences of that. The SP-Elite is a different fan. It is also 8 center mounted LEDs, but it is PWM. Be careful when picking up extra fans to match. A lot of vendors are a bit casual with the suffix on the end (RGB/PRO/Elite).

  11. Yeah, I'm sure Asus is going to get right on that. While they are at it, maybe they will decide to totally recode Armoury Crate so that it is not a steaming pile of doggie doo doo. So you could reach out to Asus support, and enjoy the long holds, unreturned messages and calls, and hard to understand level 1 phone techs reading from a script. If you are lucky, they might actually release an update that might fix this problem without causing 3 new ones. Then you can look forward to fighting with iCue and it's long list of unresolved bugs and dropped support for a long list of Corsair' own products. Or you could take another path. The whole computer RGB craze evolved in a very haphazard way, resulting in a chaotic mess of conflicting standards and buggy RGB control programs that often interfere with each other. Due to this, several stand alone, open source alternatives have appeared. When they first came out they were pretty limited and had a lot of issues, but as time went by, some of them have developed into viable options to replace the buggy, resource hogging programs offered by Asus and Corsair. Step 1 - Acknowledge and admit that Asus Armoury Crate (and Aura) are poorly coded nightmares that are probably never going to work right and never be fixed. Step 2 - Acknowledge and admit that Corsair iCue is a bloated, buggy mess. Step 2 - Uninstall Asus Armoury Crate with Revo uninstaller. Run CCCleaner after to get rid of any remnants in the registry. Sep 3 - Uninstall Corsair iCue. Step 4 - Download and install OpenRGB. Step 5 - Configure OpenRGB to control whatever Corsair LED controllers you have, and whatever Asus products you have.(G.Skill RGB RAM also supported). Step 6 - Rejoice in the knowledge that you have eliminated 2 poorly coded, bug ridden, resource hogging programs and replaced them with a lightweight, stable, easy to use, free RGB control program that supports a large (and growing) list of RGB enabled products. Signal RGB is another good option, though it is very different than OpenRGB. Good Luck, whatever you decide.

  14. Hey @thejaxx! So let's see if I have this straight ... 1x XR7 360mm (Top) 1x XR5 360mm (Side) 1x XD7 (Front) Plus ... XG7 and XC5/7? and 9 total LL's. You have the CoCore XT and the PWM hub that come with the case. ... plus a LNP and RGB Hub (only one? or two?) You'll be good. You can put 6 of the fans on a fan hub/Lightning Node Pro channel and then the other 4 on the Commander Core. The HydroX components can also be controlled from the Commander Core XT's 3-pin RGB port. You'll use the PWM hub for at least 3 of the fans on a radiator, possibly all 6. Those will be controlled from a single port on the Commander Core XT. The HydroX Thermal sensor can go to the CoCoXT (from the XD7 - it comes with the sensor) as well as a single temp sensor for the case exhaust temperature. These would then be your two control variables for your fans. And you'll have a Lighting Node Pro channel to spare for more RGB ... you can get the strip expansion kit ... because one can never have too many RGBz. Oh ... and you'd only have to use the USB connector for the Commander Core XT - so only one motherboard USB header. The USB connector for the Lighting Node Pro will connect to the end of the USB connector for the CoCoXT. This is one of the coolest aspects of the CoCoXT.

  15. I just finished installing the above PSU. I have blood on my hands and a massive headache. In 20 years + of building PCs I never had such a vile experience installing a component... Corsair, if you care about your products and care about your customers etc... CHANGE THE CABLES! Listen to your reviewers. There's a reason why Aris is banging on about the stupid in cable capacitors, cables being too stiff - they're not stiff, they're impossible!! Also, the man tells you 10cm between SATA connectors is too small FOR A REASON. It's not ok to have use two different SATA cables for two HDDs!! One HDD is in the shroud cage, the other one (SSD) on the back of the MB tray. Common scenario isn't it?! Have a look at your own cases! See where you're allocating HDD and SSD positions! You need a pair of pliers to connect the CPU cable and the ATX power. They can be bent only very close to the plastic connector - 180 degrees, very difficult and dangerous. Initially, I could not close the back of the case due to the ATX "cable" sticking out - literally about 8cm! Then I pressed the cable in and forced the back cover on and it bulged... ! Which is dangerous - shorts can happen easily. The case is Be Quiet 500DX - I can fit my garden hose inside it easier than your cables! There are perfectly rational reasons for my rage: such levels of sheer ineptitude that leads to PAIN for the customer, wasted time, PC in worse shape after "upgrading" - going backwards. Have you tried building a system with your PSU?! With these cables?!?! This is a potentially good product made SUBSTANDARD AND DANGEROUS by a set of cables with capacitors AND STEEL RODS in them! JUST FIX IT - THESE CABLES HAVE TO FIT IN A PC CASE!!! and send me a set of cables that aren't dangerous.

  19. "Fry" is certainly an appropriate term. English, being the super-confusing, contorted language that it is, has several different words and phrases for the same thing and "fry" is just as good as any of them! I think you'll be OK, though. SATA does provide 5V power and that SATA power cable only has one wire. Also, the connector that is on there is the right one for Corsair strips and I really doubt that it'll cause an issue (or they'd not put it in the box).

  20. Hi DevBiker! Thanks for your kind response. I arrived at the same conclussion as you, but I wasn't sure. I would like to try to plug it to the PSU, buy I was afraid to fry the leds (for voltage restrictions) (I'm sorry if "fry" isn't the adequate term, I'm argentinian!). And the answer to your question is: No, it has not any buttons. Thanks again! Cholo

  21. I saw on a thread on the LTT forums someone asking about ICUE in linux, and Nick, the corsair affiliate over there, said for the OP to gather linux users to post over here to voice our desire for linux support. So here I am. Here's the thing about garbage market share numbers: for one, they're obviously not at all accurate. Steam (and some other stat reporters) list linux at around 1 percent, however their methodology is flawed, and then you take something like the Humble Bundle, who reports up to 15 percent of their sales come from Linux. Which is insane given that most of the games they sell don't even run on linux natively. Further, in the enthusiast, general computer-loving community, linux has a far greater proportion of users. Even just releasing a minimal client for things like RGB and fan control, even if it's just something as simple as communicating using the dbus interface, would be all that's necessary to support linux, we can do the rest ourselves. Further, it's been shown time and time again (the Humble numbers are one great example), that when a manufacturer, platform, or developer shows that they are willing to even give token support to linux, we will absolutely throw all the money at that manufacturer/platform/developer. Linux users more than any other group will do most of the work for you, and gladly contribute back as much, if not more, than we are given in terms of support/advancing any software. That's the nature of open-source. Even if you want to release your software on linux under a proprietary license, we will still do a ton of the work and handle most of the support, that's the nature of linux. We just need at minimum the means to do that. Please, please consider doing something like this. Vendor-specific RGB control software is one of the last creature comfort things we are lacking in linux, and treating us as the first-class citizen we deserve to be treated as will give an outsized benefit

  23. How many total fans do you have in that case? You really can't put enough fans in there to require a Commander Core and 2 Commander Pros. Heck, we've even managed to get a fully loaded 1000D with 32 fans all controlled by a single Commander Pro.

  24. Well, now ... that's interesting. I think that's new. I know that @Zotty certainly get one of those puppies in his 1000D from a while ago. Based on what I see here and what I know about the 1000D (and RGB in general), I would say that's an RGB controller and power source. Just plug it into the PSU and you'll have some basic RGB without requiring a Commander Pro or iCUE. That "THING" in the middle is the controller. Question - does it have buttons you can press?

  25. At least one of the wires in that bundle is a fan hub cable, which won't help you. It only has two wires. As for the length - once you hit about 1.5 - 2.0m, you'll start seeing enough voltage drop to be noticeable. But it should work.

  27. Ugh... going to need to contact Corsair for either a forced firmware side load or replacement. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do. The link for Corsair Support is in the top right corner of this page. You might try a full power cycle once (shutdown, PSU switch off for 15 seconds, then back on), but I will be surprised if that starts it up and it likely would still be inaccessible. Firmware flops happen, but normally don't take out the pump. Instead it defaults to maximum on all settings.

  33. Hey everyone, Please message me the following: Your VIRTUOSO model (ex. CA-9011180-NA), and current firmware version for both the VIRTUOSO and its dongle. What firmware version your VIRTUOSO's dongle was on before the update to 5.4.99 (only if memorized, otherwise it's OK!) If you have any of the below devices (if so, please mention): Keyboard: K57 Wireless Mice: Ironclaw Wireless, Dark Core Pro, Harpoon Wireless I will provide the firmware and installation steps for your headset. After installing the proper firmware, you should be able to initialize pairing without issue. If you are unsure of which exact model you have, it can be found under the right earpad. Turn the earpad gently in a clockwise fashion to remove it - the serial and model number should then be revealed. I do not require your serial number, just model number please. Noted, thank you!

  35. Ordered a prebuilt from a UK System Integrator despite building my own PC's for 15 years in order to get a GPU and closer to MSRP and much quicker. Its a Lian Li O11 Dynamic Midi Tower White, with a Ryzen 7 5800x, Asus Strix Gaming F x570 motherboard, 4x 8gb sticks of Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 3200mhz DDR4, Asus Strix RTX 3090 OC, 512GB Samsung 980 Pro NVME (Gen4) for OS, 2TB Samsung 970 Evo NVME (Gen 3) for Games Storage and I will transfer from current build 2x 3TB Toshiba 7200rpm HDD's for Media. As this SI doesn't have all the parts I want I will order the following items separately. 10x Corsair Black Framed QL120 RGB fans, an iCUE Commander Pro and an NZXT Kraken Z73. Sorry Corsair, but I fell in love with the Kraken Z73 so no Corsair AIO for me this time with this build. So the plan is basically this aesthetically speaking though some parts differ from the build in the video: [ame] [/ame] There is room in this case to run the 360mm Radiator in Push/Pull if I decide to put the Rad in the Side mounting point to the right of the Mobo in that Vid. So my 10x QL120's would be all the visible fans in the case like the VID (10th Fan as another exhaust over IO Shield) but I would also have the 3x NZXT Radiator fans hidden on the backside of the Radiator. So the question is how to wire all that up. Do the Nodes that come with the 3x 3Packs of QL120's combined with the CoPro cover the RGB connections for the 10 QL120's? Can the CoPro in combination with some PWN Y splitters or a seperate PWM Controller cover the 13 fans? Ideally I want to be able to control all 6 fans on the Radiator (ie. 3x QL120's and 3x NZXT Rad fans) with the iCUE or NZXT Control software such that they are based off of the Water temperature and not the CPU or Core Package temps. Back in the day with my Corsair H110GT cooling a 6700K, no matter what fan curve I set the fans would ramp up and down even in google chrome on a media heavy web page. It was only when I realised that it should actually be based off of the AIO Water temp which is much more stable, did my fan ramping issue get solved. I would like to maintain that functionality with this new PC. WHats the best way to achieve that? All 6 rad fans connected to CoPro headers and the other 7 case fans on a separate Fan controller. Or those 7 case fans connected to the CoPro (with 1 Y splitter) and the 6 Rad fans on a separate controller connected to where it needs to be for the NZXT AIO Control software to manage the rad fans? On my old build I also used Speedfan to base the Case Intake and Exhaust fans speeds off my GPU temps. ie My GPU fan profile was set not to even spin up till the card hit 50ºc. Case Intake and Exhaust were set in Speed fan to minimum RPM. When gaming though, once the GPU temp went above 50ºc, I set a curve in Speedfan to increase the RPM's of the Case Intakes and Exhaust. Is this possible to replicate in iCUE? Is it possible to shut down iCUE without losing fan control or shut down the RGB component of it at least. Apparently iCUE can flood the USB sub system with 'interrupts' as it controls the RGB which can affect VR negatively. So when I VR game I may need to shut off the RGB control. Other users in my household on my home network will also be VR gaming on this PC remotely as well as 2D Pancake gaming via Steam In-Home Streaming/Remote Play without direct access to the PC. Ideally when they use this PC remotely and wake it up WOL with a 'magic packet', I wonder is it possible to set up a scripted or scheduled task or something like that, that would shut off RGB when they connect and re-enable it when they disconnect. Not sure if that kind of thing is possible though.

  36. Hello there. You can use 2 of the Lighting Node Cores to control the RGB of the 9 QL Fans. Just set up Hardware Lighting so that you have lighting when you close iCUE. Set the fans to one of the 3 default, and it should remain when iCUE is closed.

  37. I signed up for this forum specifically for this issue. I've built several computers over the last 12 months, all with various AIOs. My Nephew wanted to go the Corsair route, so I set him up with the 220T case and this Capellix AIO. I ordered from Amazon and am an avid review-reader. Not one single review mentioned this ridiculous minimum pump speed of 2200 rpms and the annoying sound associated with it. Maybe Corsair scrubs the Amazon reviews or something. Once I heard this sound and realized I couldn't adjust it any lower with iCue, I did a google search specifically about pump noise and all of these forum posts came up. There is a way to lower the pump speed with Argus, but then you lose all of the iCue lighting control. Since Argus can lower the speed, that means iCue could be set up to do the same. Please make this happen. If not, it's getting returned and I'll stick with NZXT or pretty much any other AIO for all future builds, and I build a lot for people.

  38. I signed up specifically for this forum to ask a question about why my new H150i pump is so loud, even in quiet mode, and stumbled across this thread. It's too loud, Corsair! This isn't bubble noises or a hardware fault, it's simply the sound of the pump. I have 7 fans in my chassis running on quiet, and all I can hear is the pump which is also set to quiet. It's extremely distracting. Is there likely to be a firmware update to fix this, or should I swap it for something else?

  39. First attempt at custom water cooling loop. Intel i9 9900k cooled by Hydro XC7 MSI Geforce RTX3070 gaming X trio cooled by Alphacool Eisblock Aurora Acryl GPX-N Hydro XD5 Pump/Res Combo Hydro XR5 280mm Rad top Hydro XR5 360mm Rad front 4 x Corsair LL120mm RGB fans 2 x Corsair LL140mm RGB fans Clear Corsair XL5 coolant Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO SL 16GB (4x8GB) DDR4 3600MHz C18 All the fittings and PETG hard lines are Barrow, I likes the look of them The Corsair X stuff is really easy to use Temp wise while playing WarZone the GPU never goes above 60 degrees (was mid to high 60's air cooled) The CPU sits mid 60's, this is close to what it was previously with a Corsair Hydro X platinum AIO, show the great job the AIO's do now, they don't look anywhere near as nice though (in my opinion) I might change the top rad to a 280mm with 2 140mm fans at some point Also the GPU block is from Alphacool as Corsair don't make one yet, I might change it if they do (anyone know if there is one in the pipeline?), it would be nice to have iCue control all the RGB RGB on - not for everyone but I like it. RGB off - The blue/black GPU cables are on order, the yellow has to go! Any thoughts or suggestions on how I can improve are welcome

  40. Thank you very much Zotty. You are so helpful! I understand now why you suggested the RGB fan hub. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like I can source this from any vendor at a reasonable price. Therefore I plan to go with the Node Core (comes with 3xQL120) + internal USB hub (already bought) combo.

  41. 1, yes, and i suggest using these as the Commander Pro has 2 LED channels. this allows you to use the RGB Fan LED Hub rather than a Node Core and a USB header for just 6 fans rgb control 2, nope the above diagram uses no splitters at all. all connected within Corsairs Spec 3, no internal usb hub needed unless usb connectivity is an issue between Commander Pro and Commander Core (some x570 boards afaik) 4, see answer number 1 good luck buddy

  42. Hello All! I'm a long time Logitech user for all of my keyboard and mouse needs, but after a chance to experience my new K70 RGB MK.2 and my Dark Core RGB Pro SE, I'm a happy convert! I am having one little issue that I'm hoping you fine folks can help with. I want to be able to use on of the thumb buttons on the mouse to 'Minimize' the active window. I was able to record a macro to do that easy enough... Windows Key + Down Arrow (twice) ... but the problem that I have now, is that when I bring the window back up, I have to 'Maximize' it every time. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  43. I also want to ask for a way to lower the minimum RPM of the pump on the Elite Capelix. Got an h115i the other day and its a good product cooling wise, and the leds are fantastic, but is really, REALLY loud even on the quietest mode, loder than any of the fans or the GPU itself. So, if there is a way to reduce the pump noise via firmware, please do

  44. There is a longer discussion about 13 fans and the O11 cases here. https://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=201243 1) All Corsair RGB is 5v. 2) I am assuming you will put the 360 radiator in the side panel as intake. This is the most logical place for most people without penalty. It also allows push push pull on a 30mm radiator. However, that means that one set of fans will not be visible. It would be logical not to connect the rear compartments fans to the RGB ports on the Commander Core. When you mix the QL + ML-Elite, it will force the software into a mathematical compromise to deal with the differing LED counts (QL = 35, but "16 effective" and Elite=8 LEDs). This means patterns are not going to look quite right on one set and you would also be programming as a group of 6 for several you can't see. Regardless of which set winds up being the interior visible one, connecting only the 3 QL or 3 Elite to the RGB ports will make them behave normally. This is something easily changed after installation, but it may have some bearing on the decision process. It also solves the problem of the 13th fan. You likely would have the QL on the inside and the rear QL can be added to the Com Core for control. 3) The Commander Core has no USB ports. The Commander Pro has 2. In the above diagram you need 5 USB 2 connections. You are going to need a hub. The good news is those HDD compartments in back are removable, giving you a lot more space for this stuff. 4) The case RGB strip is 5v and can be connected to a Corsair lighting channel via a 3rd party adapter. It would plug into a lighting channel on the Commander Pro, no controller device required. Also, the way the case's controller works is it shuffled between 10 or so pre-programmed modes (either patterns or solids) and then the last mode releases control to the other end of the D-RGB plug. This means you still can alternate between case mode (with the front buttons) and either MB or Corsair control.

  45. Hi bud, let me say you grabbed a real good case. Your diagram is very similar to what I'm using at the moment... except for the AIO (H150i for me) and the led strips. Here are some things I'd advice you: 1) putting 13 RGB fans in a not-so-big case makes no great sense for RGB strips to me, but maybe I'm mistaking. If you use the LS100 kit for your monitor (I'm using one), there is nothing to plug in to the CoPro's LED ports as the LED control cable is to be plugged into the external module. 2) The case comes with an RGB strip on the front, I have plugged its LED cable directly to the mobo and I'm able to control it via ASUS Aura or via iCue with the ASUS plugin enabled (in this second case the control is a bit complicated). To connect it into the CoPro you'll need a third-part cable, I have no experience in that sense. 3) 1 CoPro, 2 LNC and 1 CoCo is a lot of stuff to be crammed into this case... and the back space is not that big! if I was you, I'd try to get rid of the RGB of the 3 ML fans and to eliminate 1 LNC. Otherwise you could try to connect all AIO fans RGB cables to the CoCo, if you are not planning to set particular effects, it may work even if ML and QL have different LED numbers. But disabling ML fans' RGB should not be a great issue with the AIO mounted on top, you should not see that great difference. 4) What mobo are you planning to use? Are you sure you have 3 USB 2.0 header avaliable? If not, I'd go for a powered USB hub (the one from NZXT works great) instead of an USB splitter. Don't know if I've read your diagram well, if you have any question... here I am! :-) Baio

  47. Starting a few days ago, my mouse and keyboard's rgbs will turn off and the hotkeys I have set to my mouse will stop working. This keeps happening while in the middle of a game (Overwatch or COD Warzone if that matters). I have checked for updates on everything (mouse, keyboard, software itself) and they are all up to date. The only way I have found to fix it is to reinstall ICUE, but this is only a temporary fix. Please help!!

  48. The thing is I am tired of having multiple software controlling the RGB and having issues because of it. As an example I had my last build with an MSI motherboard controlling the RGB on some components and having Mystic light controlling it. Then having the my h150i controlling with icue and my old keyboard and mouse from "brand x" (we are not supposed to talk about other brands) with another software. motherboard, switched the RGB controller to corsair (commander Pro), wich allowed me to sync my h150 pro rgb, the fans and my led strips on the same software, and since the commander pro uses USB and not the Jrainbow connector like others, I had no need of a motherboard that has rgb control on it so, as I already said, I sold the older one and got one that had no RGB on herself but would give me no issues with compatibility. I also changed the RAM to corsair and added some dummy RGB RAM kits. I even bought a k75rgb Keyboard and a m65 mouse. If corsair somehow manages to do a partnership with nanoleaf and add support for light panels it would be the "cherry on top". Hope some more people add +1 to this Post and make it possible.

  49. The wireless mode isnt working any more after updating. Dongle and Headset blinking red all the time in wireless mode. Everything is at the latest version. I also de- and reinstalled icue, i did the repair option, different ports. I cant even initiate pairing the dongle any more, its greyed out. How on earth can u mess this up that much? This is embarassing corsair. I just bought the headset (quick reminder, its 170 euro and advertised as premium!) last week, it worked perfectly fine - until the update. I am extremly mad right now, better to say: i feel scammed.

  50. This is the most expensive headset I have ever purchased, and also the most ridiculously difficult to get running. I am going to be rating this thing zero stars on as many websites as I can find. This cost me over $200 for what??? The lack of support is absolutely insane. I have the exact same problem as the posters above.
