Optical Drive # 1







  1. So let me get this straight. iCUE previously had lighting link for the K55 keyboard which worked with other corsair products such as the Harpoon mouse. Corsair decided to update the software and remove the K55 keyboard from the lighting link. Now Corsair are working with 3rd parties such as Asus to get lighting link working with their motherboards, such as my X470i. Yet, the K55 has still been left out and not allowed to integrate with lighting link. Even though its a Corsair product? Your options are simple. Either use the old software with lighting link features on both keyboard and mouse (no motherboard). Or use the new software with mouse and motherboard lighting link integration (no K55 keyboard). Or there is a third option. Use old software, get K55 keyboard into lighting link settings, then update software to most recent, which will also include the Asus motherboards. This glitch method allows for all three to synchronise with lighting link, but iCUE starts acting up and crashes occasionally this way. Q1. Why did Corsair officially remove K55 keyboard from lighting link? Q2. On a separate note. Why is your iCUE software acting like bloatware, eating up all the memory? I did raise this issue with Corsair customer support, but they lied and told me to uninstall and re-install new iCUE software again, which is load of nonsense. If I knew this before purchasing your products, I would have stayed well away and not purchased to begin with. In future I've made a decision not to purchase from Corsair.:mad: Look forward to hearing from you.
  2. Howdy! Last year I was fortunate enough to be able to build my first gaming PC and i decided to go with the Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 as my keyboard of choice. Let me tell you I absolutely love the keyboard. It fits into both my needs for gaming and working as well as it fits into the aesthetic of my PC build. Now that I have played and used the keyboard frequently, I am curious on how to switch the Cherry MX Speed Silvers to keys that are a bit quieter. When I stream and/or in party chat, the clicking can be heard (personally I love the sound of the clicking). My question I'm looking for help on is, Are the switches easy to swap out and is there a preferred store/website to find new switches that are universal with the Corsair K70 RGB MK.2?
  3. I'm noticing that the jog wheel support is really spotty for a lot of software. Some things it works fine, but in other things it doesn't even do anything, or does something wrong. So I'd like to know: How does it even work? What API does it use? What instructions does it send out? And why is there no documentation? I'd especially like to get it working in VLC, because that'd be my primary software to use it with.
  4. Hi, I have a simple question, I'm french and i don't like ISO layout. If I buy a keyboard in nord-american language, does it become in ANSI layout ? Or does it become in QWERTY ISO ?
  5. What is your most used macro(s) for RPG games? If you have any game suggestions that use macro(s), post those titles here too! (A Wow macro example by an employee)
  6. So I Bought A Corsair K70 Mk.2 RGB about 2 months ago here in Pakistan. It was quite an expensive purchase for me here. But in under 2 months one of my keycaps has broken (the 4 key on the number bar above the alphabets) just by typing on the keyboard. I have been taking good care of the keyboard as it was quite expensive but still one of the keycaps has broken which is quite baffling. Now the key has become loose and i cannot use it properly, also I am a very anxious person and I cannot continue using the keyboard knowing that i can break any other key as well. So Help is required in trying to fix this as i have stated it was EXPENSIVE and it should not break in under 2 months.
  7. Hi All, Really hoping someone can help. On a UK keyboard (K100), it has a ALT GR key on the right. I would like this to just work as a Right Alt key. Trying to use a stream deck for DCS and when ever I enter a key combo using the ALT GR key, it comes up as ' L-Ctrl+R-Alt ' which means any key command in DCS which is a R-Alr + a key can not be programmed to the stream deck. Thanks for the help. BV
  8. Need replacement for my CORSAIR K70 RGB A S D keys that became damaged (still usable) and look bad. Went through CORSAIR support (nice guy!) but told my key board was at the end of its life! and no key are available! Wow, really my keyboard is well taken care of, not abused, and I wish they would have said it only last a few years! They told me the switches were good for what a million presses? Bottom line does anyone have any idea on where to get replacements for those three keys for a keyboard I dearly love.... its the A S D keys. Thanks! Bill W:sunglasse
  9. At the moment, I only use one Corsair K70 keyboard, but it's one of the first models. I'm probably going to buy another, newer one (with more visible LEDs) and I don't really want to sell this one off or have it collect dust. I'd like to use both keyboards on my desk with the iCue software, preferably the new one for typing, gaming... normal stuff, and the extra for macros. I'm honestly not sure if this is a repost or not since there's tons of threads, but I didn't see anything, at least in the titles, that looked like what I was wanting.
  10. So after a week or so of lighting malfunctions I have my keyboard functional. It types a it normally does, but there are no lights except for the upper 3 indicators. the three lights in the top left (Caps lock, Num lock and Scroll lock) are blinking together at a constant pace. about 1 or 2 times each second. I am lead to believe my keyboard is in some manufacturers debug mode. upon opening icue, i am immediately prompted with a "mandatory" update which goes as follows: 1 open icue 2 "a mandatory firmware update is available and required for the optimization of your device." ( i can click away, and the keyboard still works albeit without many features.) 3the update progresses, once it reaches 100% i hear the windows usb noise, the blinking lights pause before the keyboard returns tom this limited state. 4 Icue remains on this update screen for some time before arbitrarilly giving an "update successful to version 3.21" after this process takes to long i presume. 5 nothing changes, and Icue still has a "?" for the firmware version of my keyboard. 6 immediately after icue has another update available once i click on the keyboard. same version update; 3,21. 7 repeat without any successful updates. i suspect due to the blinking lights that my board is in some factory reset mode that prevents it from interfacing with icue properly. there is no rgb functionality and icue offers no options. i feel like I'm just a step or so away from restoring full functionality. icue recognized the keyboard model, but has a "?" next to the current version. it says there's an update available, (v3.21) but that update never applies correctly. Here's what I've already tried to correct the issue: 1 turning everything off and on again. 2 unplugging everything 3 soft resetting the keyboard with the esc key technique 4 trying to put the keyboad in and out of bios mode. this does nothing, i cant tell if bios mode even enables. 5 manually reloading the firmware by using the pinhole on the bottom, then loading new firmware provided by corsair support. despite this, my keyboard persists in this limited state. the caps lock, num lock and scroll lock blink consistently, there's no rgb and icue offers no customization options. please help restore my k96 rgb platinum to its proper functionality. thank you for your time.
  11. Hi all! I recently bought a K83 Wireless keyboard to use instead of the MacBook Pro keyboard and trackpad. I bought it because it a) had both a trackpad and a keyboard b) could connect via BT. Everything else was a bonus. But... When connected just through BT, iCUE won't recognize my keyboard at all. The trackpad and the keyboard work, though. But the keyboard layout isn't quite recognized with the nordic layout with the [<] key to the right of the left [shift], and the ['] above the [tab] key. If I add the Corsair dongle to my MacBook Pro, iCUE recognizes my keyboard, and I can presumably change the settings, remap key assignments and so on. But no... The changes doesn't work! Also, the layout is still wrong. Now... If I connect my K83 Wireless(!) keyboard to my MacBook Pro using a USB cable, all the bells and whistles seem to work. Even the keyboard layout is as expected with [<] to the right of my left [shift] and the ['] above my [tab] key. So my big question is: How can I keep my keyboard layout and drop the USB cable?
  12. Hello, I recently got a 2nd hand K95 and it works wonderfully.... However, I noticed at random; idle, gaming, it doesnt matter, it would freeze at random. It would lock the machine, it doesnt unlock and I have to manually turn it off. I notice after about 30 seconds whatever profile I have in iCue gets turned off and the default colors kick in. I also installed 6 LL120 fans, Im not sure if thats the cause of it, but I thought I should mention it. If anyone may have any ideas I would greatly appreciate it, its been frustrating getting decent gear new and used for it to cause issues. I appreciate it in advanced.
  13. Hey, Happy new year to you all :) Ok so I wanted to buy a Corsair K70 mk2 low profile keyboard to replace my current one. But the most important things for me are macros. In the past I have read that there was a "problem" that macros don't properly work with the "no delay" feature. See here: https://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=172616 And here: https://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?p=926843 Apparently even with the "no delay" toggled on, it still had some sort of 20ms delays or something similar between every keystroke. It is VERY important for me that I can set a 0ms delay between keystrokes and edit a custom delay afterwards when I need 50-80 delays between two certain butttons. Sooo long story short: Is it possible to have an actual 0ms delay by now? I hope someone can answer this :)
  14. Hey guys im fairly new with using the iCue app. I recently bought the nightsword rgb and im having problems trying to change the sniper button to a keyboard key. It tells me to click the virtual device or press the button but when I do nothing happens. Any ideas?
  15. Recently I brought the K70 RGB MK.2. I can't find save profile to device on iCUE. Thought Keyboard is defective. After little research, hope I found the solution.:biggrin: It is not about the iCUE or hardware issue. I'm running iCUE Version 3.15.101 Keyboard Firmware Version 3.24 WE NEED TO SOFT-RESET THE KEYBOARD Follow these steps to Soft Reset the Keyboard Quit iCUE Unplug the keyboard With the keyboard unplugged, hold down the ESC key. While holding down the ESC key, plug the keyboard back into the computer. After about 20 seconds, release the ESC key. If done correctly, your keyboard's lighting will flash. For the K95 RGB Platinum, this process is slightly different: Quit iCUE Unplug the keyboard With the keyboard unplugged, hold down the ESC key. While holding down the ESC key, plug the keyboard back into the computer. Hold the key down until the keyboard begins to flash. Unplug the keyboard and plug it back in. Official Link to Keyboard Soft-Reset Official Link to Mouse Soft-Reset Issues: You cant export or copy the Default Profile to Onboard Memory. You need to Select one of the Onboard Memory Profile (HW1, HW2, HW3) and select Lightening effect. Only 5 custom or 1 predefined lightening effects can be created for Hardware Profiles. NOTE: I don't have K95 RGB or Corsair Mouse to check this method. If anyone have K95 RGB or Corsair Mouse, try this method and comment on this thread
  16. Hey guys, I have a new K60 keyboard and Im using 6 LL120 fans (Lightning Node Core with Capellix) and 3 Lightning Pro strips (Lightning Node Pro) from Corsair, but whenever my screensaver goes on and off, the deafult color of my K60 keyboard changes to red. Its only with the keyboard, the color of the other Icue devcices are like my set profile and stay in the colors like I want them. The hardware color when Icue doesnt work is also an other effect and not static red, so Im wondering where this red static settings comes from. I even cant change the color; switching my profiles or directly changing the keyboard color, nothing happens. I have to close and restart Icue again, every time my screensaver goes on and off. This cant be normal? Greetings and thanks in advance. Silverex57 ::pirate::
  17. Hi everyone, I have recently adquired the k95 platinum rgb keyboard and I have a question abaut the volume wheel. The problem is that the wheel spin nice until it reaches a point, then do a "clack", and then works nice. Always happens and I don't know if it's normal or not. If someone can help me I would be very gratefull.
  18. Hello together I have owned a Corsair K95 Platinium keyboard for 3 years and a new high-end PC for 1 week. Now that I have the power to stream, I would like to put some keys to control OBS and OBS scenes on the G-keys. Unfortunately I haven't found a way how to program and assign the G-keys with the corresponding functions. So I would be glad if someone could give me a detailed instruction for this. I would like to assign the following functions to the G-keys: G1 - OBS scene "Stream starting soon G2. OBS scene "Game Capture" G3 - OBS scene "Be right back/Pause G4 - OBS scene "Stream Ending G5 - Start recording G6 - Pause or Stop recording I have no experience with macro programming via iCue and I find the software for this rather complicated. I would be really happy to get support and I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks a lot
  19. Hi all, i love your keyboards but not all use it for gaming. So i wanna suggest you to add a feature. I wanna bind multiple key for doing an action. For example: my keyboard layout is italian but i frequently use characters like '~' and i wanna something like pressing ALT GR + ` print ~ instead of `. If it's already possible please tell me how. If not consider it in a new software release. Thank You.
  20. I just got my keyboard on the 29th, it is a K95 Platinum Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, and it was working for about 10 hours after arriving but then it started flashing random colors and typing on its own. Is there a way to fix this or should I send it back?
  21. I have no "Power Management" tab for this keyboard in "Device Manager>Keyboards>...". Therefore my keyboard does not wake my computer from sleep. Is this right?
  22. Is there a left-handed and rgb wireless keyboard? The base of the k63 is designed for right-handed users, left-handed people put the mouse on the left. Thank you
  23. Hi everyone, I have a K70 RGB Rapidfire keyboard I purchased about two years ago. Everything was working smoothly until about two days ago when I changed the CPU and GPU of my PC. Now the keyboard only shows the color red. When I flick the switch on the back of the keyboard to the BIOS setting it changes the WASD and arrow keys to white, but every other key is red. When I import a new profile, I can change the color of the "Windows" button but everything else remains the dreaded red color. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  24. Pre-sales: I am considering CORSAIR Strafe RGB MK.2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard for purchase. 2 questions: Question #1 Is there a newer keyboard which matches the MK.2 for the current ~$130 price? I need, USB, Per-Key RGB, keypad, toggle light on caps lock state(?), not flimsy. Question #2 Nowhere in specs or marketing video is it clear that I will get full per-key RGB of the nature I MUST have. I've seen per-key RBG advertised by a single, solidary 3rd party seller, but the corsair site sort of backhandedly says yes to pre-key lighting control, but I can not find a specific statement or spec that is an unconditional yes. In particular for my personal needs, I could care less about rainbow colors, and it is nice to have optional per-key lighting with keypresses... BUT that is not enough. Before I buy I MUST know that I can get a static white background, and I MUST know that I can additionally statically specify the color of each, any, or every key individually against a white background or dark background consisting of the rest of the keys. This is important to me because at the age of 75, my sight is OK, but not as good as it used to be, and there is a chance that I will slowly go blind. The lighting of the keys with complete static control is and would be very helpful to me until I kick the bucket. Sincerely, JS
  25. Hi, my laptop keyboard has not been lighting up for some reason. I've gotten the latest updates, but they are still not lighting up. Anyone have a solution?
