Steam bugs RGB K70 out.
 
Whenever i open Steam it seems to crash the Corsair SW. After i "reboot" the Kb by cycling the bios switch, everything works fine.

Just a bug.

What is your setup for streaming?

Ley3198 09-15-2014 10:57 PM

Im hooked up to 2 HDTV's running off an Nvidia GTX 560Ti. One though HDMI (main:1920x1080) and the second through VGA (1360x768).

Its not a problem within games, just upon Steam connecting upon start.

I notice it happen since i have a wave effect going on and it suddenly stops.

Very odd. You are the first i have seen with a issue upon steam launch. I'm a heavy CS:GO player never had a issue. I will report this.

I have this problem also. Got the K70RBG last friday, working pretty great otherwise, but on launching Steam, any key press effect stops working and even if try to switch profiles nothing changes. It keeps the key lights as they were, but no effects and unable to change until i unplug and replug. Only ever seems to be Steam too, and every time i launch it too.

K70 RGB - Opening Steam causing lighting effects to stop working.
 
I'm using the latest Steam(Not Beta). Latest K70 RGB firmware and using 1 USB 3.0 port. Windows 8.1 64bit. I opened steam and as soon as I hit login, my lighting stopped working. I unplugged my keyboard and opened Steam again and it once again froze the keyboard. I unplugged the keyboard again and open Steam and then it works normally. Steam is the only application i've been seeing that is causing this problem. I do this a forth time and then catch it on video.

Same thing happens with mine, but it happens like every 5 minutes opposed to when I start steam.

Hmm If I'm AFK my keyboard will do the lighting effects for hours when i'm not using it. I wonder what you're doing that is triggering it.

Same here!

Awaiting any official word from Corsair. This is an annoying bug.

It is the opposite for me. Whenever I open Steam, Steam freezes and the keyboard continues to work. I'm on Windows 8.1 as well, but I'm using 2 USB 2.0's. I will try with 1 3.0 and see if the problem persists.
Update - This was actually the first time trying to use 3.0, and the keyboard doesn't work in 3.0. Lights work but I cannot type in all configurations. 2 in, 1 in, 1 in, all show lighting but cannot type.

this may be irrelevant and i apologize for possibly wasting your time, has anyone tried different polling rates with the switch behind the KB? to see if the issue persists?

I am using 1 USB 3.0 and all the functions of the keyboard work, you must have tried the wrong USB. Also, i'm currently returning this keyboard, I'll try it again at another time.

I have been having both issues were Steam will take a VERY long time to load, or it just crashes, and the utility engine no longer recognizes my keyboard. Waiting for Steam to finally load and then playing with the polling switch or unplugging and re-plugging in the USB seems to work it all out so it appears to me that it just has something to do with Steam initially loading. I was hoping that the CUE 1.1.48 and Firmware 1.12 would take care of this but so far it does not seem like it has for me.

I am currently using both connectors in USB 2.0
