  1. Hi all, here are some helpful links for the new iCUE NEXUS companion touchscreen! iCUE NEXUS FAQ Page If you're making your own custom background images for the iCUE NEXUS screen or custom elements, here's a handy diagram to get you sorted when creating assets.
  2. Setting Fan Order and Rotation in iCUE 3.27 Starting with CORSAIR iCUE version 3.27 you can customize the order and orientation of your fans. This allows you to have more fine control over how custom animations are displayed on your system and saves you the effort of physically removing and re-orienting your fans or changing the ports they’re plugged in on your lighting hub should they be in the wrong order for more complex lighting effects. Lighting Setup Tab To get started, go to the lighting setup tab of your iCUE-compatible lighting controller and configure your lighting channels if you haven’t already, for this example, we’ll be using six LL RGB fans on a Lighting Node CORE. You’ll notice that each fan has its own tile in the preview and they’re labeled by the physical port that fan is connected to on your controller. Each fan will light up with a unique color in the same location, making it easy to decide how you need to orient and re-order your fans if they need to be adjusted. By moving your cursor over each fan tile, you’ll be given fan rotation controls to adjust each fan clockwise or counter-clockwise in iCUE. For best results, match the LED position in iCUE in relation to the physical fan. By default, iCUE will always illuminate an LED on the top left quadrant in the UI, so if one of your fans is displaying the LED indicator on the bottom left quadrant of the fan, you should hit the rotate button to match the LED indicator on the fan preview with the physical LED indicator on the fan. You can also change the order of the fans by clicking and dragging each fan tile into the desired position. When looking at the preview window, iCUE lighting animations will go sequentially from ports 1 – 6 (left to right in the preview window). If your fans are displaying animations out of order, simply drag and drop those fans into the correct sequence for your system. Lighting Channel Tab Whatever fan orientation and order you configure in the lighting setup tab will now carry over to the lighting channel tab. And that’s it! Note that fan orientation and order only apply when iCUE is running, if you close out the software completely your fan lighting will revert back to their physical orientation and lighting order. TL;DR, we've now got a video. [ame] [/ame] If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out to us by making a thread in the iCUE section of the forum.
  3. The 2016 reboot of DOOM was awesome and the next entry, DOOM Eternal looks to be even better! To celebrate the launch of another hardcore FPS, we’ve got an updated custom DOOM lighting profile courtesy of RGB wizard, Lewis Gerschwitz. You can download the profile here. But what next? iCUE can import and export custom profiles, they can serve as a backup of your home setup’s lighting and performance, but they can also be shared with the community! A few repositories exist for this very reason, but let’s go ahead and dive into how to import and setup a custom profile you’ve downloaded, using the newly updated DOOM profile as an example! To import a profile into iCUE, start by expanding the profile options tray and clicking on the import/export button (arrows going left/right). iCUE will now display profile import/export options in the main window. Click the browse button (the button marked “…”) to open a new window and browse to the profile you wish to import. In this case, we’ll select the DOOM profile. Click open then select what parts of the profile you’d like to import, if this were a backup of a profile you used for your home setup, you’d want to import everything, but since we’re only interested in the lighting effects, uncheck all the boxes except for the “Lighting Effects” box. Click import and iCUE will proceed with the import process. Okay cool, we’ve successfully imported the profile… but did you know that you could have iCUE automatically switch to a custom profile when you start up a game? Click the browse button marked “…” next to the box for “Link profile to program”. A new window will open and you can browse to the executable for your game. We’ll use DOOM 2016 as an example, but this also applies to DOOM Eternal or any other game/program you’re linking the profile to (file names and location will be different of course). If you’re confused as to which executable is the right one to link the profile to (some games use multiple .exe files), launch the game and ALT+TAB out so you see your desktop. Start up task manager and find your game in the list of processes, expand and you should be able to see which executable is used to run the game. Now that you’ve linked the profile to the game, you’ll want to go in and tweak settings for your hardware, if you’ve got a Commander PRO or any of our other iCUE-enabled products, you should take this opportunity to set up fan curves, DPI, and remaps that’ll apply when iCUE switches over to this profile when you launch the game! Alright, the important bits are covered, but don’t forget you can also set a custom background and icon for this profile too. Download whatever images (or be creative and make your own) that you’d like to use and apply them in the profile settings window. And that’s it! You’ve successfully imported and personalized a custom profile! Now go on and get fragging!

  5. I'd like to start by saying, although I do like and play a lot of video games, I was drawn to RGB mechanical keyboards by the idea of using them as a productivity tool for software like those found in Adobe CC. I wanted to optimize my productivity and speed by remembering shortcuts. An RBG keyboard seemed like the answer! Hold CTRL, and C & V light up in green, etc. It is possible, exactly as described! I saw a lot of people here asking about it and a lot of tutorials not quite helping, or, only helping with one modifier key and not a combination of them, but I'm gonna show you how to switch modes via modifier key/modifier key combo, while retaining the functionality of those keys. 1. First, go to the Profiles window and create a profile for your software of choice with modes for: Default Ctrl Alt Shift Ctrl + Alt Alt + Shift Shift + Ctrl Ctrl + Alt + Shift Set the lighting of each mode to fit the shortcuts and keys of the software you're making the profile for, decorate, etc. 2. Now it's time to set up the mode switching. Go to the assignments pane and start with the Default mode. Set the Ctrl keys to both take you to the Ctrl mode, the Alt Keys to both take you to the Alt mode, and the Shift Keys to both take you to the Shift mode, while pressed. http://i.imgur.com/1aVa5e7.png Important: Uncheck "Apply setting to the same button/key in the current profile"! We only want this to happen in the default profile, so when you hold one key and switch from the default profile, you're able to press another key to move to a combo profile and perform combo shortcuts. 3. Now, go to the Ctrl Mode. Assign its two Shift keys to take you to take you to the Ctrl+Shift mode, while pressed, with "Apply setting to the same button/key in the current profile" unchecked once again. (Mode switching settings should look the same as last time, but for the combo mode instead). Now, when you're finger's already on Ctrl and you're in Ctrl mode, adding Shift will take you to Ctrl+Shift mode! 4. Repeat Step 2. for all the other combinations. It helps to think of all of them as branching paths. For example in Alt Mode, set both Ctrl keys to (ONLY IN THAT PROFILE) take you to the Alt+Ctrl mode while pressed. 5. Once you have all the mode switches set up, go to any mode but Default, and set the only mode switch that'll work across all profiles. set the Pause Break key, or some other key nobody uses, to take you to the default mode with a press, not while pressed. This is just in case you exit the CUE editor on one of your modifier key modes or something and need to start at default again. http://i.imgur.com/Y2Rqtkm.png 6. This is the annoying step, and I'm literally so sorry about it. In your Ctrl mode, you have to set all the keys (minus the two Ctrls) to send the keystroke of "Ctrl + That Key". Likewise, for combo modes like Ctrl + Shift, you gotta set all those keys (excluding Ctrl +Shift) to send the keystroke of "Ctrl + Shift + That Key". An easy way to do this Quickly is to go to Profiles>Assignments>Actions List and drag them all on, one by one. For K65 users, I'll include my list of all these keystroke actions, so all you gotta do is drag them onto the keyboard. The important settings for these is to have them repeat while pressed with a delay of about 75ms or so. http://i.imgur.com/FYMmjpl.png Sorry if this tutorial is a bit wordy or hard to follow. I'm not really good at teaching/explaining. Please reply if you're having any issues. Keys.act
