  1. Hi, the Audio Lighting which ships in current iCue for use with the LT100 towers (or otherwise) provides a direction toggle, horizontal(left-right) versus vertical(up/down). That's cool, but what it's missing which i'd like would be a way to toggle within that which specific way the audio levels are demonstrated. In other words, rather than having it set say to vertical and the beats shooting up.... I want to be able to have them shooting down. Why? I don't know, listening to a lot of heavy stuff recently and the huge drops might be cool to visualize the other way round. Thanks.
  2. I hate bump posts as much as anyone else, so I'll add some meat. Whenever the planned updates come along I sure hope they involve such things as configuring the ranges for display meters like my water temp, voltages, power draw etc which is mostly what I use the thing for any more given lack of development in other areas. I always have to remind myself that it redefines for itself what an average level is and just because a graph is topped out doesn't mean anything's high or low or whatever. Apart from that, The Nexus feature-set is holding me back less and less from trying alternative RGB management software options, as it doesn't grow and they do.
  3. This doesn't answer your question, but while we're talking about coolants, this half-scammy new entry is fascinating. Love to see whether it too will clog stuff up over time, or eat away at metals or something else horrible, because it's gloriously disturbing looking.
  4. If every single fan behaves poorly when plugged in solo, the issue is likely with the controller. you can try forcibly reflashing it, or you may be in a situation to RMA it. More often the issue is with a single fan in the chain which corrupts the signal passed down to every subsequent fan in the chain off the same controller. I've had that version, and swapping the single bad fan addresses the problem.
  5. Thanks DevBiker! I don't have any specific plans, but having done a rather silly extent of RGB-ing to this point I'm starting to wonder how far I could go.
  6. For the sake of argument, if I want to get jiggy with it and go beyond the 4th one that's arriving soon? 🤪
  7. At least there are lots of options now for EVGA cards, there weren't when I first started looking. I don't think we're supposed to name other brands or I'd point out which I got for my 3090 FTW3 Ultra, which is mindblowingly good at cooling it.
  8. Huh. I was hoping an XD7 would be more of a 12" reservoir tube kind of offering. This is surprising. Won't do my 1000D much justice so it's not for me, but cool anyhow.
  9. Matte black tubes have gotten trendy, and I'm finding myself surprised how much I like them. While there are some EPDM 3/8" ID 1/2" OD tubes available out on the net, they're perpetually out of stock, and I don't know how compatible they are on a materials miscibility basis with the rest of my Corsair gear. I see your frosted black hard tubes and they're glorious, but would certainly appreciate a matte black soft tube offering until I'm ready to revamp everything over to hard tubes (not happening until I get my 1000D Distro Plate from EKWB at the earliest). Thanks, I know you cannot talk about future products, just plugging my interest.
  10. I plugged mine into Channel 2, they're really just led strips, set them up as such.
  11. Still happening. I did a complete teardown uninstall, registry purge everything and clean download and fresh install of the latest version of icue4 and even a simple one-page nexus window still pauses and needs to be touched to start again.
  12. This stalling has not occurred once in 24+ hours on the new iCue 4.x branch.
  13. I unplugged and replugged the device from usb.... so far it's been running about 8 hours without a stall, whereas before hand it was stalling out any time I turned my head for 5-10 minutes. Not a "fix" at all, but potentially a workaround and maybe a hint where to look for the problem.
  14. Mine has started doing this as well. Stalls out and stops updating, eventually I notice and touch it and then it goes psycho speeding through a billion missed updates to get to current state. iCue version 3.38.61 (but the prior version did it too) nexus firmware 2.2.6 "Enable display timeout" option for Nexusa is NOT enabled.
  15. Do not see this. Current icue, geforce drivers 461.40, video lighting mode on, gsync on.
  16. Maybe updates have addressed this since posted but I'm running 2x 250 and 4x 450ml strips on my ultrawide and I do not see this kind of cpu usage while video lighting at all. I'm looking at 5% cpu total right now while having a bunch of chrome windows up and streaming youtube and all the usual launchers and icue. iCue version 3.37.140
  17. I'll confirm for you, the bitspower matte black are a perfect match, only differing in logos. I use them myself.
  18. +1 for this. I just set up my new K100 and iCue Nexus today and was kind of shocked there wasn't a memory usage widget. Or if there is, it's well hidden. :)
  19. EVGA 3090 FTW3 Ultra checking in, sure would prefer a corsair waterblock for it.
  20. EDIT: Big nevermind, with my thanks. Found my answer elsewhere. I'll preserve it here in case there's any value to somebody else, or I'm happy to nuke it off to keep the thread clean. Answer here: https://forum.corsair.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1004708&postcount=4 DO NOT Hotswap RGB connections. Hey Zotty or Devbiker quick question I hope will be easy: (Note: I did read in the faq: "Do Not Hot Swap Fans and Strips into the Commander Pro or Lighting Node Pro while Your system is powered up." I just don't know if that also applies to the RGB Hub. I'm assuming so, but checking) I'm diagnosing some lighting weirdness that's crept in, trying to determind if one of my LL140s has gone rotten in terms of passing signals down the chain to others strung off the same RGB hub. Are the fan RGB connections into the RGB hub safe to plug/unplug "hot" with the system up, or am I looking at a long series of powerdowns and powerups to do some sequence juggling and testing to isolate what may be bad? Thanks buds. Edit: Oh heck some details while I'm at it. I have 3 CoPros loaded with fans (9 LL120 and 6 LL140 in total with the 1000D chassis lights and 6 RGB strips total). The 1000D Copro is serving the RGB strips on Lighting Channel 1 - everything working fine. It's also serving 6xLL140 on Lighting Channel 2. Up until recently everything fine. Recently (within the last two updates of iCue anyhow is when I noticed), the 6xLL140 on channel 2 are weird in lighting. They can do solid white fine, but anything else, only the first fan obeys and the rest do other things - most often the spiral rainbow puke, but sometimes just wrong colors. Consistently for fan 2-6. This makes me think Fan 1 isn't passing signals down the pipe properly, and is the theory I want to test by reordering. The weird thing is that if I set Fan 1 to no RGB and pass colors direct to 2-6 things mostly work okay, though with some lag. Similarly if I drag-select a strip of lights rather than the whole set of fans all together. I still think this points to a bad Fan 1, but again that's what I want to eliminate conclusively before I tear apart the 1000D to get at the fan, which is inconveniently buried in a push-pull on the top rad tray. I have already swapped out the RGB hub with no improvement (eliminating the hub contribution and also any "loose" connections to the hub or hub to Copro), so it's down to the fan(s) or else god forbid the 1000D Copro itself. I've already flashed the Copro just for giggles. I had been blaming the new iCue since simultaneously those were also driving CPU hard, but now I'm convinced it's a hardware fail. Followup: yep. Fan 1 is pooched. Swapped 1 and 3 on the RGB hub, new ordering 3-2-1-4-5-6. Signals get as far as 1 and no further. That's gonna be a @(%@(#*$& to get out and replace, but at least I've got an answer that is easier to swallow than a whole copro gone.
  21. As with Salaku, there's still an issue with LL fans (LL140s in my case) lighting wrong/randomly or not at all, *and* now iCue is consistently eating 12-15% cpu in addition where normally it's down around 2-3%.
  22. Congratulations, nicely done. Re: Bubbles - you can just keep turning it off and on, you can vary the speed up and down, you can tilt the case around to help air move, or you can just wait and let it naturally work its way out over a few days.
