Sad Weird Flickering Keys.

I have a K65 RGB and i turned on my PC this morning only to see that some keys are different colors than others. If I set the keys to red then i see some that are green and sometimes they switch to other colors. Ive tried uninstalled CUE and The Keyboards Drivers. Its really bothering me now, since i have nothing else up my sleeves. EDIT. I also noticed that when i switch to certain colors when i highlight all keys itll be a really Dim Color.

No well, if he sets keys to be red and they are suddenly green or other colors that's not flickering. It sounds like a hardware issue to me. Contact Corsair support and see what they say about RMA.

As for flickering itself, it happens only with some specific and/or complicate effects. It can be removed disabling the 16,8m colors option/mode.

I'm trying to capture a video to properly illustrate the issue. But it seems that as soon as you have the 16.8M color activated, and that you use a gradient. Should any of the colors displayed in the gradient also be a color you chose for your background colors, they will consistently flicker.

For example, setup a full red KB background, except for 1 key that pulses red (gradient effect). The entire keyboard will flicker consistently.

Reflash the firmware. I'll upload it to the CUE sub-forum for you and everyone else who needs it.

Here it is, sorry! This has all the FW for each keyboard so make sure to unzip it first to retrieve the file you need.
