Regardless of the cooler's detection in iCUE, rest assured that the cooler will continue to operate as normal. This should not affect your cooler's functionality beyond being able to change the RGB LED and alternate between cooling profiles.
If your cooler is no longer being detected in iCUE after restarting the computer, a software conflict may be responsible. Running other software that controls RGB components can deactivate the driver for your Corsair cooler’s interface.
Known Conflicting Software:
- EVGA PrecisionXOC
- MSI Mystic Light
- Asus AuraRGB
Uninstalling this kind of software is the surest way to rule out a conflict with your Corsair product, but there are other steps that may resolve the issue. In some instances, it is possible to correct the issue by deactivating the RGB controls in the conflicting software.
Finally, it is also possible to reactivate the driver manually after restart. To do this:
- Open iCUE.
- Go to the SETTINGS tab.
- Select Restart iCUE Service.
This will allow your cooler to be detected until the next restart of the PC.
