In my opinion it's time to boycott corsair

They've gone an updated iCue from version 3 to version 4, and V4 is required for all new products going forward, which is fine except for two things

1. V4 ditches support for a lot of their older products, they just dont work.
2. V4 uninstalls V3, you cannot run both at once


So if you guy a new corsair product, you have no choice: you need to throw out your old corsair products and buy new supported ones - corsairs official stance on this is that these products are EOL and should no longer have software or driver support.


edit: list of abandoned products
Here is the list of products that will no longer be supported in iCUE 4:
  • K66 Mechanical Keyboard

  • Sabre RGB (2016 version)

  • Sabre RGB Optical ((2015 version)

  • KATAR (2015 version)

  • VOID USB (2015 version)

  • VOID WIRELESS (2015 version)

  • VOID SURROUND (2015 version)

Their keyboards are great but the drivers got all bloated after rgb became a thing. I disable most of their services manually, after installing the keyboard I only let icue run not any of the other processes cobblefucked onto the driver.

Just go into the folder they launch from by right clicking in task manager and open file location, rename the exe to exenope or literally anything added after exe and it'll prevent them from running.

I'm using the v3 software with a k57 and a k70 rgb with custom rgb profiles on both. Lame if v4 doesn't support them. Also lame if you're forced to choose.

Ending up with Corsair RGB RAM my mobo couldn’t control I was terrified having to install iCue. I was SO relieved when I set my colour it “stuck” and I could immediately uninstall it and have never had to use it again. :respect:

i've done that as well, some corsair hardware has 'hardware lighting' which is remembered even when the software is disabled or uninstalled

I'm so thoroughly disgusted by this forced disposal of hardware, they cant keep the software name the same and just disable a bunch of working hardware

Yeah I mean I’ve pretty much used Corsair RAM for a decade but iCue horror stories and this being my first build with RGB I didn’t know what to expect except trouble.
Edit my previous ASUS board basically forced me to use AISuite(garbage) I thought I was going have to go through that again.

@Mussels - Is there a list of products no longer supported in iCUE V4?
no, which makes it worse. So far i officially know of most of the older corsair headsets

Void wireless: no support
Void PRO wireles: supported

they now have dozens of models that all look very similar but have slightly different names... people just see a void wireless headset, they dont go looking for a P/N code in the headset band

Don't know about the iCue, but their entry level PSUs are terrible, and RMA (non-US) is a nightmare.

Stick with the old version if possible. Block connection with a firewall.

I can already see people doing this very same thing (boycotting Corsair) after updating to iCUE v4 and POOF! - byebye product support :(

Just to be safe, I'm not going to update. I don't know if my Commander PRO and H100i RGB PRO XT would be considered "old" and thus become unsupported by v4 so I'm not going to take the risk.

the fact that 3 of their 120mm fans sell for $130 is enough for me to not buy

i saw this on newegg & other retailers a year or so ago, & swore it mustve been a mistake....nope, i was wrong. theyre charging $40+ per Fan!
Nah, i dont need go fast stickers, or RGBullshit. whats next, a pink shag computer case? Anime stickers? i leave that BS to 9 year olds.

Honestly Some of there shit won't last past it's eol anyway , I have seen two nodes a node pro and a commander off because they just stopped working, obviously no reason.
I have been rethinking my Corsair love recently they got doe off me, no more until this shitstorm of support improves drastically.

So glad my keyboard and mouse are roccat I'm way too invested in Corsair.

Products becoming EOL is the natural order of things, so not offering software support for them isn't that crazy. At a certain point, I would imaging keeping a full device library, and the specific information to control all the various LEDs and what ever else that might be controllable, leads to massive installs. Do you really want to have a program to control your ram that is a 2GB download and 8GB install, when all the information you need is sub 500MB?

missed the point here: it's not about them ending support for an older product, it's about them preventing you using it's existing software if you buy a newer product from them
icue is so bloated the installer is an openGL 3D program with youtube videos in it.

As an example logitech moved over to G hub - its got a shit reputation but they had SEPERATE programs so the old hardware continued to work just fine on the old software

Also, while I am not against the way it all went down (iCUE needed a lot of shit fixed in the older gens), but iCUE 4 is also W10 only ;)

While they may be pissing many off, I feel iCUE 4 is a better version with more up front options. More intuitive.
I do not know if I will have every-other upgrade issues like I did with earlier iCUE, I am hoping that but may change since one little bit of software is no longer controlling a shit ton of products.

In a round about way, I could be much of the reason this happened. All of the gear I was reviewing as of late had software issues, and I was always in with reps trying to sort it out. I can no longer say that.

My keyboards color stick similarly but custom key profiles don't. I need the software running for remaps and such to work, but for regular keyboard keys you don't need any of their software running for it to work normally.

If you close it from task manager your profile should stick and then you can prevent it running on startup in the startup tab and if you really want to stop it, open windows services (type services in the windows search bar) and look for corsair and disable their services.

I didn't miss the point, that was covered in the whole giant download and install, same theory works backwards as it does forward. Plus how many software developers continue development on old software, not many. Yes they offer support for it, but don't introduce new features or support new products.

As an example logitech moved over to G hub - its got a shit reputation but they had SEPERATE programs so the old hardware continued to work just fine on the old software
I wonder if it's because of that bug, in GHub or LGS, where the update routine, caused the Logitech software to delete itself and silently fail to install the update.
