Corsair service CPU Usage High
1 Attachment(s)
Hello there everyone ,
I'm here looking for some help if you don't mind :sigh!:
So i'm kind of nervous because the corsair service cpuIDRemote ( check the picture attached please ) is using a lot of my cpu and i've been wondering if this is how it should run or there's some kind of bug !
Is there any way to disable it ? on the services panel i only find one and only Corsair Service , so i can not turn off this specific one ! Thank you.

Hi buddy.. do you have 'Enable Full software Control' enabled for your Ram?

heaven93tv 01-17-2019 01:21 PM

Yes i Do Sir @Zotty

As i see mine jump from around 0.2% to 9% when i enable it

Why does enabling software control, use 10% of a modern multi-gigahertz multicore CPU? This is not an acceptable amount of compute resource to be using to turn some LEDs different colours a few times per second.

Yes, it's frustrating, I've disabled software control on my Vengeance Pro RGB due to high cpu usage. In general I find the software buggy, my MM800 and ST100 randomly stop running profiles, when running benchmarks my fan profiles go wonky and it seems to get worse with each update. It's annoying when you invest alot in a brand and are let down by poor software!

The issue when running benchmarks is thread starvation. The complex effects that iCUE provides are run in software - when you are running benchmarks, the CPU is consumed by the benchmark (which is the point of the benchmark, right?). You don't expect, say, Firefox to run real snappy when you are running a benchmark, do you?

It's either have the RAM lit up all the time (including when the computer sleeps) or enable software control and have the software eat 10% of your cpu. Very disappointed.

I have this very same issue,

but I DO NOT have a ram with lights, the ram is corsair but no lights on it, the only corsair device the icue is managing is k70lux non rgb keyboard.

I have to manually suspend the service every reboot because it uses 5% of cpu every 5 seconds.

Got any suggestion for me? Seeing as I can't turn lights on ram off.
