Corsair K70 RGB Rapid Fire
« on: 08:41 PM - 10/22/16 »
hi there, previously i used a Corsair K70 RGB red cherry MX switch that worked fine until it started to double tap my keys (key chatter).  Recently purchased a Rapid Fire edition and tried to use it with XiM4.  Unfortunately it kept getting errors on all device slots as soon as i plugged it in.  I tried to use BIOS mode but still got errors.  Will there be a plan to add support for this keyboard in the future?

Thanks.

Hi there, thanks for responding!

Yes i've attempted using latest builds for both manager & firmware.

unfortunately it showed all devices connected and working for about 5 ~ 10 seconds and my keys were responding to XIM4.  After that all device slots on the manager popped up as errors and my XIM4 was blinking yellow.  I've tried both BIOS and standard mode on my keyboard, no luck  :-[

Ok, was your XIM4 actually blinking yellow-red? If so, that's a power fault. We have a video on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2cLPySzrpU

OBS you are correct sir!

I went ahead and removed my battery pack from my controller -> replugged it into XIM4 -> switched keyboard to BIOS mode -> started up XBOX and it works perfectly.

Thanks so much!

I'm glad you are back on track. Could you also try not being in BIOS mode? Our latest Beta firmware (20160918) should make it so that you don't have to do that.
