Corsair iCUE Software
Once installed, this is the first screen you see of the iCUE software. You can see it is ready to control the K68 RGB, but it also shows the H150i PRO we use on this rig. You also see the Farcry 5 banner, and what Corsair does with this gamer for immersion of keyboard activity dependent on what the game is doing is cool.
After clicking on the K68 RGB icon from the last image, we move into the profiles section. This is where you will add profiles, which in later steps make programming the keyboard to specific application much easier to do. Click on the "Default" box, and a sub-menu opens. It is where you can add as many profile names as you want, but be sure to select the proper profile before moving on with customizations.
Corsair calls Macros "Actions" in this menu, and you must click on a "+" box to add one. Once pressed, a sub-menu opens at the bottom-left to allow you to name or delete the Macros, on the bottom-right is how you do so. Not only are basic Macros a breeze, but delays and mouse movements can be recorded, the advanced menus is where you set the trigger keys for said Macro, and the start settings allow sounds to be added, and a test button to ensure it is all set correctly.
Lighting is intense with the K68 RGB. While you can customize things on a per-key level, or use solid colors, there are still twenty other selections to be made with how the built-in modes will display the RGB LEDs. It has to be the most predefined options we have seen yet on any keyboard, and allows each user to get exactly what they want out of the lighting.
The performance section is where you can disable keys for gaming scenarios by clicking the box to the right of the options, which turns the boxes white when active. In the middle is where we can change the LED colors of the lock indicator LEDs as well as the brightness button. Out of the box these are white, but here, you can change them to anything the RGB scales on the right have to offer.
