If you already have CORSAIR CUE or CORSAIR LINK installed, it is recommended that you uninstall these before installing the new CORSAIR iCUE software. Also, you may import profiles created in previous versions of CORSAIR CUE software if they were created for CORSAIR CUE 2 and newer. Be sure to backup any profiles you wish to use before uninstalling CORSAIR CUE and CORSAIR LINK.
1. Monitor Statistics
With CORSAIR iCUE, monitoring your temperatures, power usage and more can now all be done in the same program as your lighting controls. As previously stated, CORSAIR iCUE includes features from previous CORSAIR LINK and CORSAIR CUE software. CORSAIR iCUE allows you to monitor the operating temperatures of your components such as CPU, CORSAIR AIO liquid temperature, PSU and temperature probes using the Commander PRO module. Power usage can be monitored using the Commander PRO along with a compatible CORSAIR PSU.
2. Control and Customise Fan and Pump Speeds
Just like in the previous CORSAIR LINK software, you can control the speed of your fans and CORSAIR AIO water pump using CORSAIR iCUE. CORSAIR iCUE provides pre-set fan and pump profiles such as “Quiet”, “Extreme” and more. “Zero RPM” mode is new to the CPU AIO Cooler market which allows the fans attached to the radiator to stop spinning which further lowers noise levels. Custom fan curves can also be created if you want complete control over your fan speeds.
3. Customise and Sync RGB LED Lighting
Customise the RGB LED lighting on your CORSAIR peripherals, PC components and accessories using CORSAIR iCUE. For easy customisation, CORSAIR provides pre-configured RGB lighting profiles such as "Spiral Rainbow", "Rain", "Colour Shift", "Visor Random Colours" and many more. More complex lighting can be set up using custom layers within the CORSAIR iCUE software.
4. In-Game Reactive Lighting Integration
By partnering with Ubisoft, CORSAIR has been able to improve the PC gaming experience of Far Cry 5 by offering immersive in-game reactive lighting effects. CORSAIR iCUE changes not only the colour of the RGB LEDs in your gaming peripherals but also the lighting of compatible PC components. CORSAIR iCUE matches the RGB LED lighting with what is displayed in-game onscreen to create the ultimate gaming experience. See the video below for an example of what CORSAIR iCUE's in-game integration can do.
5. Customise Product Specific Options
Along with being able to control your fan speeds, RGB LED lighting and more, CORSAIR iCUE also offers the ability to customise product specific options. This includes being able to fine-tune the DPI of your CORSAIR gaming mouse and assign macros, adjust EQ settings of your CORSAIR gaming headset, assign macros to your CORSAIR gaming keyboard and more.
