The Corsair iCUE software experience
Here we see the main iCUE interface. The iCUE software allows syncing of corsair devices, fans, coolers, and peripherals. As you can see here, we have the H100i PRO and the Lighting Node CORE listed. These devices can be synced with lighting effects going across all installed Corsair devices.
Here we see the graphical representation of the Lighting Node CORE. It shows a plastic external case, which means there will likely be units you can purchase retail that will not be just PCB with connections. Unlike the Lighting Node PRO which has dual LED ports, that then go out to an RGB LED hub from Corsair. The Lighting Node CORE, in essence, is a Lighting Node PRO with a single RGB port going to its own RGB LED HUB which is the six-port splitter that directly attaches to the fans.
Initial setup has you specifying within iCUE the lighting channel which is single and selecting the type of fans you have installed along with the qty.
With the lighting configured for the installed fans, we now can set lighting modes. There is a multitude of lighting modes within iCUE with the ability to download profiles made by users of iCUE for even more possible effects patterns.
Lastly, we want to look at the device settings. Here we can see once again the H100i and the Lighting Node CORE. Here is where we can adjust display information along with flashing the firmware. We showed the button previously to do this manually, but in most cases directly through iCUE, it should work just fine. The manual way of flashing was for if you cannot flash from software for some reason.
I think this about wraps it up, let's take a look next at our final thoughts and how the iCUE 465X from Corsair performed.
