    One desire of many Corsair users was software unified control software, opposed to two versions, CUE and LINK. That now is possible as Corsair launches iCUE. A single intuitive product interface, iCUE...

    Also please note some products are deemed EOL and will not be supported and few products do not have support yet so you might want to check the Compatibility List. Found here: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=176104


    In the FAQ see this:
    4.) Why is iCUE missing support of some of my devices?
    While we made every attempt to support as many products as possible, certain products had reached EOL (End of Life) and did not fit well into our new ecosystem. These products will not have support in iCUE:
    H100i
    H80i
    Commander Mini
    Cooling Node
    Lighting Node

    Here are the products that are currently out and will have support in future versions:
    ML RGB PRO Fans
    H110i/GT
    Dominator AirFlow RGB Platinum
    AX1600i

    Laughs in Gigabyte RGB Fusion.
    You think iCUE's 2% is bad. GB's RGB Fusion has 10-12% CPU usage on my 8700K. That's a real CPU mega hog.

    EDIT: Disabling everything in the Dashboard fixed it for me. It's now back to 0.2-05% CPU usage.
    The Dashboard has all those system live information that hogs the CPU

    Did anyone notice Far Cry 5 has Corsair RGB keyboard integrated? This thing isn't stopping, soon we will have the whole house light up depending on your HP bar in the game, so your friends 30 miles away will know you are still gaming at 2 am, powered by Corsair :D

    Unfortunately this feature doesn't seem to work, at least not for me with a Corsair Strafe MX. On the other hand I haven't installed this iCUE software but I doubt it's the problem.

    Nice, but there's no product I'd be interested in buying that makes use of this. Or is anyone aware of any single 140mm cooler by Corsair? They seem to have discontinued the H90, or whatever model it was, and there's no replacement.

    Not impressed. Even for a beta. I'd seriously only buy Corsair stuff that doesn't require extra software from now on.

    I liked the option of the LEDs in Far Cry 5, it was very good, I hope you have more games with these options in the future.

    Hmm...it's using 0.1% of my 8600k


    It's not "required" at all. It's completely optional lol. I do find it funny that people whine about optional software as if it's compulsory

    Not really a fan of Corsair's software... the program for the keyboard's lighting is causing serious lag in my other games. not sure why. Disable the program and I have no issues at all... wasn't like that with their older software version, but just on Monday I once again had to shut it down or I would have gotten serious lag while gaming... not sure a "bigger" suite makes it use any less resources, and since I only have the keyboard (K70 RGB rapidfire / K70 RGB) and the PSU, I'm not really sure it's of much use to me anyway.
