Just want to make note on a few more bugs discovered.
1) Freezing occurs when pressing the Caps Lock key more than once in a 1 second period. Lights freeze and an unplug or restart of CUE and polling mode switch required to unfreeze. (noticed this happened in Osu! running via steam)
2) Like the above post, there has been some weird things with the lighting. Sometimes white looks a bit green or pink. I have ensured that white is only colour applied and this is quite odd.

So overall, if my keyboard is working fine for me should I even bother with the firmware update? I'd like my mouse to have the LEDs work correctly, but are there issues with that?

Same here. My keyboard goes into malfunction mode a few times a day on average, and it got worse since I installed this firmware update. I installed it less than an hour ago and it's gone into malfunction mode three times already.

This is ridiculous.

-edit-

Make that ten times in two hours before I leave for work. Absolutely incredible. Does anyone have the 1.14 or 1.13 firmware for the K70 and know how to downgrade it?

Well to answer my own question, I guess people who don't have issues don't post much. Installed the new FW and no problems, just finally able to control scrollwheel color and the KB turns off in sleep mode. (not that it was hard to hit the brightness button to turn it off before). Do the people with the issues have the original one with the sails logo or the newer one with the gaming logo?

Yep, same here. Probably about a 15-30 second hang up at the bios splash before it keeps going... also oddly the computer will go to "sleep" but never actually "sleep" ... it gets to this sort of like... unresponsive state that acts like hibernate but doesn't turn off. I even reformatted the OS on this computer, so I know it's not the Software.

Nope. At least, not in my experience with this thing. I toggle the polling switch whenever cue freezes up to reinitialize the device, seems to work just fine. It actually seems considerably faster with the firmware update.

To add, not only does it affect the Caps Lock key, but for me it affects all of the lock keys.

Just received my new K65 and K95 today! I'm trying to update the firmware but I just get the simple message "failed to update device firmware" when I go to download it. I've set CUE to Administrator mode and also set it as an exception in my antivirus but no dice.

Although reading some replies in this thread about the firmware breaking things maybe it's good I can't download it ^_^;

I made a thread about an issue happening to me but I'd like to post it here for visibility.
http://forum.corsair.com/forums/show...291#post743291

Basically whenever I use a macro assigned to the G keys on my K95 the lights freeze and I can no longer switch profiles or modes.

Anyone happen to have a copy of 1.14 lying around and know how to downgrade? 1.15 is horrifically unstable, causing the keyboard to malfunction literally seconds after I plug it back in.

I can also confirm that after the Firmware update to 1.15 on my K70 RGB Steam related lockups appear to be more frequent than before, and now they will sometimes happen when I'm in game, which did not happen before the update (Most recently when playing The Evil Within). There also appears to be an issue with CUE freezing up when The AMD Gaming Evolved App (Raptr) launches as well, usually on system start up, which did not happen before. In both cases, the affected program takes a very long time to launch, and the keyboard lighting effects freeze up, although the keyboard keys still register unless CUE stops responding. When CUE stops responding, I restart it and it usually won't crash again unless I reboot. When the lighting stops working switching the keyboard to BIOS mode and back again will usually make it work again. Pressing caps lock does not freeze the keyboard anymore though, and the lights shut off when i turn the rig off now, too. I actually find myself wishing I could downgrade to firmware version 1.14 now. On a side note, when I connect both plugs to the USB 3.0 ports instead of the 2.0 ones, the keyboard and CUE seem to be more stable.

No ill will towards Corsair from me though, this is a new technology and it will experience some growing pains in terms of software stability. One thing I will suggest for Corsair to do is when releasing a new firmware or CUE software update, please leave the old version up on the downloads page, so that users can downgrade if necessary. In my case, firmware version 1.14 was much more stable than 1.15.

Edit: the lighting will still freeze on boot up in USB 3.0 unless I disable AMD Gaming Evolved app on start up, then when the app is launched the lighting will freeze regardless of what it's plugged into. Steam will freeze it every time it's launched, no matter what USB plug I use. And if I press scroll lock even once, the lighting will freeze. It seemed to be a placebo at first that USB 3.0 was helping. In all cases, switching to BIOS mode and back makes the lighting work again, and the key presses still register even when the lighting freezes. CUE does not crash when Steam launches, but when AMD Gaming Evolved is updated, CUE stops responding and it freezes the lighting.

I just updated to 1.15 firmware and one big problem for me.

When playing Typeracer and I start rocking out at over 100 words per minute, the keyboard starts lagging is no longer keeping up with me. Even as I type this post, I type what's on my mind and then watch the letters try to keep up with me.

Tried different web browsers, tried using USB 2 and USB 3 ports. No difference. I can reproduce the problem easily by just opening notepad and mashing a bunch of keys and it takes forever for the jibberish letters to come up.

Anybody else having this typing delay problem? Please just try it out for notepad and let me know if I'm the only one or not.

Okay, Corsair responded to my support ticket mad fast and told me to uninstall the software and reinstall the latest version. I think I was running Corsair Gaming Engine or something, and the new version seems to be called Corsair Utility Engine. Anyways, followed their advice and everything is back to normal for me!

No issues here now, just posted this up if it helps anybody else out.

Btw, I see people had similar lighting-up issues I was having when I powered my PC off. This is not a fix, but here's what I do: I created a Mode within my most common profile called "Lights Off." I just have that mode with all backlighting off purely for when I power down my PC. I have 'Pause Break' button assigned to switch modes. I just hit that key once or twice, everything goes out, and I power down my system. Again, not a fix, but works for me and I don't lose the power-off USB charging function.

Updating CUE and the new KB+M firmware gave me back the # and \ keys on the UK layout. I've missed them all too much for the last couple of months.

I have yet to see whether high CPU load crashes CUE still, as previously it would revert to: no lights on either the K95RGB or M65RGB and default DPI on the M65RGB.

I am still chuffed by the return of the # and \ keys though, so cheers Corsair!
