Corsair is currently one of the best gaming keyboard brands for gamers. Their keyboards are made with keeping the comfort and need of gamers in mind. Recently they introduced their new Corsair gaming K70 RGB. Gamers took it hand in hand. Today we will be talking about its software.
The corsair keyboard software is probably one of the worst and best things about this keyboard. How? Well, it is worst in the sense that it is really difficult to understand the software for an inexperienced person, and the hundreds of pages of the manual further scare us.
Fortunately, Corsair makes learning a little easier for us through YouTube, where they have published a series of configuration videos that are a great help in not losing their sanity with the Corsair CUE.

For our part, we will only limit ourselves to detailing key aspects of the interface and experience of using the program. Initially, the latest version of the program is 1.10.67 and so far it has worked perfectly.
Entering the program, the first thing we will notice are four main menus: Profiles, Actions, Lighting, Options. In each one, we have the possibility to import / export either to share what we do or to use those created by other users. A good place to find them is the dedicated Corsair forum.
In what would be the Profiles menu will be where we will assign basic lighting effects or choose the ones we have created for certain applications or uses. Right here, if we don’t want to break our heads with advanced settings, we just need to go to the Lighting sub-menu and choose from one of the preset keyboard effects.
If, on the other hand, we want to assign macros, create shortcuts, and be able to control applications and / or games with key combinations, we must go to the Actions menu.
Corsair keyboard software lightning menu:
The most interesting (and overwhelming) thing is on the Lighting menu.
This menu is where we can create our lighting effects according to four different patterns:
- Continuous allows a group of keys to alternate between one or more colors;
- Gradual, it is similar to the previous one with the addition that we can choose transition between one color or several;
- Ripple, is with which we can use a ripple effect between color or several keys of a certain group; and
- WAVE, what it does is create instant waves through certain keys assigned in a certain group of keys.
The above is easy to read, but I can assure you that it is not. Even simulating the effects that come pre-determined is quite complicated. This also tells us that the number of effects we can create is limited to our imagination and the time we want to invest to create them.
In the end, the problem I find with the Corsair CUE program is not so much that it offers advanced customization options, but rather that the interface arrangement, the assignment of groups, effects, and profiles is somewhat confusing, which complicates being able to master it the first time. or achieve the results we expect.
