Corsair's New Mouse Lineup and XL Mouse Mat Review: Page 7 of 9

Software

All 3 mice in this review are compatible with the latest Corsair iCUE software. If you already have iCUE installed, you will be required to update it for all the mice to be detected. I originally have version 3.8 installed and only the Ironclaw was found. Once I updated to the newest version (3.10) all mice were detected without issue. The newest version of the software can be found here: https://www.corsair.com/icue

Looking at the “Actions” menu, you can create macro’s, remap buttons and various other things to any of the mouse buttons. As you can see below, with the Ironclaw we can associate these actions to any of its 7 buttons.

This is mimicked on both the Harpoon RGB Wireless and M65 RGB Elite with only the photo of the mouse and buttons changing.

Going to the “Lighting Effects” menu, you can adjust the RGB zones of all the mice with any of the following effects:

Predefined:

  • Rainbow – Cycling through all the colors of the rainbow
  • Color Pulse – Fading random/alternating colors in and out
  • Color Shift –  Shifting between random/alternating colors

Custom:

  • Static Color – Solid static color that is always on
  • Solid – Solid color that can have the occupancy and lighting time configured
  • Gradient – Gradient of two colors that can have the occupancy and lighting time configured

Lighting Link:

  • Spiral Rainbow – A spiral rainbow type effect over each of the RGB zones.
  • Rainbow Wave – Changing colors in each RGB zone in an alternating pattern using the whole spectrum of colors
  • Color Wave – Alternating colors in each RGB zones and changing color on each cycle
  • Visor – Flashing colors alternated from each RGB zone

Under the “DPI” menu, you can configure each of the of the DPI profiles of the mic. Looking at the Ironclaw’s DPI profiles, we have Default, Sniper and 2 others each having individual DPI settings for X/Y. Below the DPI settings, you can also change the indicator colors for DPI and Sniper.

The Harpoon and M65 DPI screens are similar to the Ironclaw, with one exception: they can assign different colors to each DPI setting and have 2 additional DPI profiles.

On the “Performance” menu, you can configure the mouse’s pointer precision and speed. This is universal across all the mice with the exception of a “Profile indicator color” attribute for the Ironclaw.

The last menu item is “Surface Calibration” and it is used to calibrate the surface you want to use your mouse on. The mice are already preconfigured for the majority of Corsair’s surface but if you are planning to use another mouse pad you would want to run the calibration for maximum performance.
