CUE hates intel. I wonder if AMD users have this issue.

No problems whatsoever here on my AMD ASUS M5A99FX PRO REV 2.0 motherboard, its a pleasant experience throughout, intel themselves are a pain in the **** tho.

hi just recently got a new k70 rgb and had at least 3 of the above problems
my solution was much simpler and safer than messing with bios settings
also tried all the usb 2 n 3 port configs made no difference
go into msconfig and services tab, tick hide all ms services then disable all apply, restart,
then if that solves the problems you probably have a conflict with a unused/forgotten/broken/deleted program, as you collect loads of these over time...
then you can go back into msconfig and enable just the things you use or need regular
like corsair utility, anti virus etc etc one at a time restart between each, until you find the culprit
worked for me... now no freezes crashes (yet lol) and fast boot times

Hope this helps someone

The 16 million colour issue actually doesnt bother me at all i mean isnt 512 colours enough on a keyboard? the k70 still runs rings around any other keyboard.

I have an ASUS Z87K motherboard and it works nicely (USB3) with the K65 RGB.

so i tried to connect my k95 to my brother' pc which is an amd platform, and it actually does not freeze anymore when i press the lock keys. ok 1 problem solved. my pc has another thing to trigger the lightning freeze beside lock keys, open steam, mumble, and some games (FF14 in my case). so i tried opening those apps... bam, it froze.
can someone confirm it doesn't happen on adapter / pci usb hub before i bought it?
my only 100% works fix for now is not to have any kind of animation lightning, even the type ones, which defeats the purpose of the very existence of this creature. my keyboard is in denial of itself, sad..

Is CUE ever going to get updated to fix these issues? Or am I basically stuck buying a USB card for a keyboard that literally renders my computer unusable? I mean between my BIOS getting stuck and having to flip that switch on the keyboard to unstick it, my mouse randomly locking up when the keyboard is plugged in, the keyboard randomly ceases functioning (Yesterday it was doubling every key press for some reason until I completely rebooted) + all the other issues I have with it -- I'd honestly rather not spend a single $ more on what seems like a broken product.

Like I get that not everyone is having problems and it seems to be a motherboard configuration issue and it's nearly impossible for Corsair to test every configuration prior to launch -- but this is like the worst experience I've ever had with any peripheral device ever. I feel like at this point I should just cut my losses and spend the money on something that isn't going to have these problems, rather then gamble on a USB add-in.

Corsair seems to be working on an update (for the 16 million color thing) is that all that update will add? Or will they actually attempt to fix the issues users are having with certain motherboard configurations?

I understand your pain. It's certainly a right royal b***s up, but this was posted only 4 days ago:

That said, while the pitch may sound like a broken record at this point, our monthly updates have resolved a large number of the nagging issues. The big issues like colors, lights freezing, etc. is very soon. I've already distributed a beta build with the USB issues partially resolved and in the next beta, we should the full implementation of the fix. We've learned a lot since then and while it sucks to wait, you all do have Corsair's gratitude for sticking with us.

You can certainly post your opinion, however, posting it in the FAQ thread is the wrong place
