CUE Software




With CUE freshly installed an opened, we are first shown the Profiles tab, and more specifically, the Assignments section of it. This is where you will create various profiles via the top left section, and once named, the show in the larger window below. To the right, you can then pick the various buttons and reassign functionality to other mouse buttons, keyboard functions, and even Macros.





We then move into the Lighting tab, still within the Profiles section. This allows you to set colors based on profiles, so it is easy to see visually which profile is currently loaded into the M65 Pro RGB. You can select Rainbow, Solid Color, Color Shift, or Color Pulse options in the drop down menu, change the speed, and can also opt to change both LED Zones in the front and back of this mouse.




The Performance and DPI section offers what you would expect. Here you can select which DPI level to be used by default for the profile you are programming. This is also where you can change the DPI levels for each of the five selectable DPI levels, as well as associating the color to each level. You can change the Sniper DPI level here, adjust pointer speed, use pointer precision, enable angle snapping, and even change the LOD setting.




The Actions menu goes very deep into what is possible with the M65 Pro RGB. Here you can set Macros, use text commands, record keystrokes, add shortcuts, set the DPI button, use timers, mouse functionality, and multimedia controls. This makes it so that anything you desire from this mouse can be programmed, and is waiting for use with just a single click of the mouse.




If the earlier LED options were not enough, for each thing you want to program, such as out "testing" programs listed here, you can now adjust things even further. Using the options to the left, you can use solid colors, gradients, a Ripple effect, and a Wave effect. This is where you can set the duration, intensity, which lights are used, and even more.




Under the settings tab, we then find even more settings. Here you can disable lighting, and adjust the polling rate via a drop down menu. This also shows us the firmware and bootloader versions currently installed, and even tells you if the mouse is operating properly. There is a manual surface calibration option if you wish to use it, and with one click, you can check for firmware updates as well.




Under the Program tab in Settings, we see there is much more that can be changed as well. Language selection is here, software updating option is here as well, and a bunch of check boxes for various other things as well. You can address the OSD settings here, Macro record options, and select which media sources you want buttons to apply to.




The last of what is offered is found in the Support tab. Here you can get help from Corsair or look at the manual for this mouse with just one click. You can also get to their support and FAQ via buttons at the bottom. If you need tech support, or want the forums, or even want to view logs, you can do so on the right side, and this software even contains the system information if you need to send a report to Corsair.
