NWV Corsair Club

For all you Corsair fans out there, here is your chance prove it!
Colourful, plain boring or not even the owner of a corsair product? No matter!
Let us sway you to our ways!

And so, allow me to begin…

Did you know that Corsair was founded in 1994, and has grown from pioneering the high-performance DRAM market to one of the worlds leading providers of enthusiast-grade PC components and peripherals. Their groundbreaking technology and innovation can be found in high-performance memory, ultra-efficient power supplies, PC cases, PC and CPU cooling solutions, and solid-state storage devices. Under the Corsair Gaming brand, launched in 2014, they have provided gaming keyboards, mice, headsets and mouse mats to eSports professionals and anybody who is passionate about competitive PC gaming like you and I seem to be!

So onto the pics!

I use a softer orange palette of flickering flames, a profile called Fireplace, seen in the first picture below.

An added lighting kit rims the interior at the top of the case.

And this is the Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition profile, with red beating heartbeat every 6 seconds across the num pad and all bottom row of keys.

A mouse appears in all three pictures (thirdmouse) is also from Corsair, a Sabre RGB. Keyboard is the K95, a newer version than your own based on what I see.

Two front fans plus a headphone stand, with the led strips glowing from up top of the case, can be seen in this photo. The fans are matched to flicker like a flame when the Fireplace profile is running.

Finally, I have a second string of LEDs around the back of the monitor that I control through the Corsair iCUE software and it illuminates the back of the wall at night which makes it easier on my eyes and screen glare by having a light on at the desk or ceiling lights.

Did you know that Corsair has developed a global operations infrastructure with extensive marketing and distribution channel relationships, and their products are available through leading distributors and retailers in over sixty countries worldwide.

So much kissing up I figured I must have wandered into an adults only server.

This is a Corsair love nest.

Lost a lot of faith in Corsair. iCUE 3.5.111 is plagued with issues. Corsair forums is quickly filling up with angry people.

Main issue that everyone is experiencing, including myself, is CPU spikes every 5-10seconds.
If you shut down iCUE, including the service it stops.

Everyone claims iCUE is no longer in beta and hasn’t been for a while, I would have to disagree.

I removed my Lighting Node Pro and sold it off.

—=== Update ===—
This issue persisted with the recently released version v3.7.99 however a small group of us were contacted by Corsair devs and we’ve been working with them to resolve this.
Turns out a user by the name of DevBiker came up with a simple fix that even Corsair couldn’t.

So if you’ve been experiencing lag spikes while gaming or watching videos try the following:

  • Go to your iCUE installation folder in Program Files (x86)
  • Find all the files that begin with cpuidsdk
  • Rename the extensions to end in .bak (I did it so they’re .dll.bak)
  • Restart the Corsair service or better still reboot

I sincerely hopes this works for you as it did myself.

P.S. As it happens, I never was able to sell off my Lighting Node Pro :laughing:

A small lighting upgrade. :grin:


Still rocking Corsair here! In fact my mouse is showing signs of wear, not surprised after 3 years, so I went ahead and ordered a Corsair M55 RGB PRO (I’m left handed) to unite my peripherals.

Fantastic that you’re still part of the team. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Recently upgraded to the optical switches keyboard Corsair now offers, cleaned the old K95 Platinum and boxed it up as a backup or for a secondary system. Also updated to a new AIO, the H150i PRO XT, and updated the old RGB strips to their newer diffused LS100 strips. Waiting for their MM700 mouse pad to become available in Canada and their new Katar Pro XT wired mouse. Their Void Pro headset w/mic did not last long either. It still works but the sound quality was rotten. Ended up grabbing Beyerdynamic DT 990s and a DAC to power them. Not sure about a microphone as I do not play co-op games that require such communication. Guess if I was going to get one, it would be a TLM 103.

If you invest, CRSR is what you’re looking for if you’d like to expand your current portfolio.

Hard to tell, but are you still running your custom loop?

A new version of iCUE 4.x is currently in beta, so one of the features we may finally get to see, is the ability to drag and drop hardware on the hardware list inside of iCUE. So finally, you’d be able to have your mouse on the left side of the keyboard, so effects hit the mouse first, then the keyboard. Current version of iCUE 3.x, even if your mouse is placed on the left side, hit the keyboard first, then the mouse.
