For official support you should submit a ticket. The forum is mainly peer-to-peer support, Corsair employees do visit it from time to time but at this time I think they are all busy with CES 2017 related things.

And as I mentioned before the hardware part of the flicker issue is fixed in the new LUX series. It can still be a firmware/software issue though, or an hardware issue related to the USB controller on your motherboard.

I'll try that soon, but I need to get my full PC privileges again, and my parents should (hopefully they kept it) hopefully find my receipt. I hope they didn't throw it away...

My Rapidfire sometimes does the same, just in the part of the number keypad, I thought it was my imagination, as I noticed it barely as it's alost out of viewing angle.
It looks like a CUE fault for me, as it blinks of the color of the ripple effect (so not in stored in hardware).

Im somehow thinking it may be an cue fault too. Do you have it only with more complex effects aswell? I dont have flickering with a static color, for example.

I contacted Customer Support and Reflashed the firmware of my k70 rgb rapidfire (2.05) manually. However, in more complex lightings the problem still persists.
Things i now tried:

Force flashing via CUE
Manually flashing
Changing USB ports and standards (3.1, 3.0, 2.0)
Updating Bios
Updating Usb and chipset drivers
Different light intensities
Changing cue process priority
Cue compatibility and admin mode
Downgrading to Cue 1.x
Unplugging some other usb devices
Getting my PCH connected ssd und full load, then going to see if flicker intensifies (nope)
Apply standard voltage to my cpu again
Some bios settings which all didnt help
Some Cue settings like deactivating sdk
Pray
Looking into logs if there are lost usb packages (there arent)

I dont really want to rma it and answered customer support about this, but i get a rma-ish feel =/

I'd recommend submitting a support ticket as suggested above, and one of our Technical Support Staff can provide you with a hard reset.

Pardon the bump but, was this ever resolved? I too am noticing that certain lights 'flicker' abnormal colors when certain lightning effects are applied. Did going over the logs result in anything? How about flashing the firmware?

They have never fixed this problem. Here is their "solution" to this: change usb ports/reflash firmware/finally get new motherboard.

Here is fresh review of K70 Mk2 published yesterday and as you can see in 03:48 (lock key) problem still occurs.

I've had this problem out the box with me Strafe RGB.

If any key animated in any way, other keys will flash. I logged a ticket and they said they are happy to replace it but I'm not sure it'll fix things. Especially after reading all these posts.

Over 2 years I had this issue and I've been avoiding using any animated lighting effects for as much time because I, unlike others find it so off-putting when random keys are flashing.

I've tried everything above to resolve this my end.

It's just not good enough!

Hello,
first time on the forum, but I had to share my experience.

I am on my third k70 LUX I think and they all had the same problem. This one got it yesterday: a bunch of keys (num block, del, underscore, comma and others) started flickering and I don't use any effect, only static colors. Some flicker even with no effect, the stop media key for example.

The only way I can fix it is by unistalling the program and keep the basic lighting. I don't know it it is software or not, but it is kinda strange that it would happen randomly with no changes in drivers or pc parts.

I cannot really recommend this keyboard or any keyboard from corsair, to me they are just horrible. Some keys have a metallic spring sound to them and the RGB will fail you eventually.

I won't buy another corsair peripherals ever again, i will stick with their PSUs or colling systems at most.
