I was just about to buy a pair of headphones and I think Corsair is back on the menu now.

K70 RGB and M65 PRO RGB working flawless here. Cheers!

Tip for M65 PRO users, I set the sniper button to the keystroke shortcut for Mission Control, DPI up to Notifications and DPI down to Show Desktop. Enjoy!

Thank you for ckb-next. It works with my K65 Lux RGB keyboard on an older MacPro (3,1; early 2008) running 10.11.6.

ICue refuses to install.

I use AppCleaner to remove it and then I have to find and remove a startup deamon located in /Library/LaunchDaemons/

Now a general question about ICue. What is the lowest, oldest version of macOS iCue will support?

Update: Firmware on the K65 was old. Updated to version 3.0.8. iCue still fails to install. Thinking there is another issue but don't know what it is. I could look in the Console if someone can point me where to look. Doing a search on iCue doesn't reveal anything glaring at this time.

Another Update for this beta, Version 3.14.104 , and Quicktime is still not working.

[QUOTE=Corsair James;982647]Hi everyone,


1.) What products are supported in iCUE for macOS?
iCUE for macOS will only support HID products (keyboards, mice, headset, headset stand, and mousepads).

James I can full understand corsair JUST supporting the peripheral device for Mac OS.

With that said, the H150i and RGB pumps come with a default setting/profile that color cycles or "rainbow" the RBG lights. This setting runs regardless of what Operating System one is using (windows, linux, macOS).

Unless I am wrong and this setting is somehow "burned" into the coolers onboard memory, this "profile" could be flashed over with a new one.

My question(s):

1. Could users on different OSs create a profile on a windows machine. Export and flash this profile/code on to the onboard memory.

- 1.a If so would it be possible to share those instructions?

- 1.b If you wanted to take this a step further. I imagine a web base gui could be easily created where customers login with their official corsair user/name and design their color profile as desired.
This gui could be as advanced (mirroring current icue functionality) or as basic (pick a single static color) as the company chooses.
Regardless once these REGISTERED users create and submit their color profile, Corsair servers/machines inject/replace that profile into the product firmware, the user can then download the "customized" firmware and flash it to their device.

- 1.c Feel like this is completely justifiable to corsair not only to those not using supported OSs but also to those using your supported windows OS and justifiable to create across your entire line of products. I imagine MANY of your users with RGB products use more than one computer, or even friends computers. Having to download icue on every system inorder for them to get their "custom" color(s) is a bit of a hassle. This ability would allow customers to simply set their device to their favorite color/profile and never have to worry about changing it again.

2. If this would be too time consuming to make could you create a few "custom" firmware options/updates where the only difference between each one is that they have a different static color (say the 3 primary colors blue, red, yellow). As silly as it sounds, I use my machine strictly for work (not gaming) and I feel like people associate the flashy RGB stuff w/ gamers (not that I have anything against them) but its just not my style.

I understand that all of the following would take work/time out of your/Corsairs schedule, but I believe that any of those options would be greatly appreciated by those users who do not use/like windows but still want to use Corsair because of their quality hardware.

Glaive RGB support
Just wondering if there was any time frame we might see Glaive RGB support for the Mac Icue, got one at PAX East would love to use it.
All my other gear works great on Mac

I have updated iCUE for macOS to the latest v3.14.

K83 Support for MacOS?
Do you plan to add any support for the K83 for MacOS? I recently purchased a K83 at the PAX East gaming convention and it seems to have limited functionality with MacOS. The top and underside right/left click buttons don't work at all, and I can't adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad or joystick control.

hello Corsair James, this is non-corsair James! I just wanted to second the suggestion of being able to change the default color setting from rainbow cycle. All I do with my fans is set to a static color.

I appreciate the effort on iCue for macOS!!!

I also just got a K83. I fractured my spine and I'm on bed rest and this is almost the perfect keyboard (I've tried a few). Notes:
- My first search for a Mac version of iCUE had me installing 3.12.118:
-- That version didn't know how to update to new versions, it would re-install 3.12.118. Hopefully that's fixed.
-- That version had settings for touchpad sensitivity, and I think touchpad click, that are gone in 3.14.104. I set the cursor speed to 60% from 50% with that.
- Kalex2021, the top and bottom mounted buttons are sending left mouse click and right mouse click for me. That's after I enabled "Mac OS mode" using FN-(+/=).
- I haven't had luck re-mapping keys or adding applications but I'll study that some more.
- My biggest problem is the sensitivity for clicking on the touchpad. I'm constantly clicking while I move the cursor around. I think there was a setting in 3.12.118 that might have helped; is there anyway to either:
-- Get the sensitivity for the touch pad click back;
-- Disable "touch-to-click" on the touchpad. I haven't found that.

Thanks -

Tagging for when the update is released so that Quicktime and VLC will work. Had to completely uninstall iCUE until that gets fixed.

I have been testing it on 10.13.6 with a Strafe and a MM800 and I totally love it. Nothing to complain here, for a beta its pretty solid.

I saw someone saying something about not working with VLC, but it works with VLC, IINA and Quicktime just fine.

Still not working on Mojave Beta 10.14.5

jtb33 04-10-2019 10:25 AM

Same issue for me with macOS 10.14.4 and the newest version of iCUE.

justicedelivere 04-11-2019 11:15 AM

Still looking for help here. Corsair K70 RGB MK 2 SE no longer detected by iCUE after updates, and after reinstalling iCUE. Harpoon wireless mouse is detected even if connected to the keyboard itself, or separately. Just the keyboard is not being detected. Thanks!

Installation Failed: iCUE-3.14.104-release on macOS Mojave 10.14.1

Any ideas why? Or not yet supported?

Thanks in advance.

Same on Mac OSX Mojave 10.14.4

Renaming (hence removing) the CorsairAudio unix executable allows both iCue and Quicktime to run as a temp workaround
