Software & Lighting
Now you can use this keyboard right away without any software, but if you want to do any real customization you’ll need to download Corsair’s iCUE software. When testing this keyboard we used iCUE version 4.10.273.
Opening up iCUE you should see all of your Corsair products listed on the main screen. If for some reason you do not see the K60 RGB Pro be sure to update to the latest version of iCUE.
Clicking on the K60 RGB Pro icon we are brought into its options. The first option on the left is Key Assignments. Here we can fully remap the keyboard. Each key can be reassigned to a keystroke, mouse button, text, media controls, launch an app, switch profiles, a macro, or be completely disabled.
The next two options are for lighting. First is Lighting Effects and the other one is Hardware Lighting. Basically Hardware Lighting is the effect you want if you aren’t running iCUE. This keyboard supports per-key lighting and you can easily select which keys you want to add an effect to. There are a handful of presets and of course you can link all of your Corsair devices to have the same effect.
As far as lighting goes it is pretty good on this keyboard. That has a lot to do with the clear diffused switch housings and the fact that you have low-profile keycaps.
The next setting is Performance, where you basically set what keys get disabled when you have Windows lock turned on.
Finally there is device settings. Here you can update the firmware on the keyboard, set the polling rate, lighting brightness, layout, and debounce time.
