I want to talk about a new product that Corsair released later this year. The Corsair iCue Nexus is going to help run your rig how you want to without interrupting any tasks that your running. It has a touch screen that you can customize however you want, it has 200 different slides and up to 6 buttons per slide so you have a smooth transition for your apps and controls.

What is the Corsair iCUE Nexus

So what is this and why do you need it? You want to harness the power of Corsair iCUE software and there is no better way than to do it with the Corsair iCUE Nexus Companion Touch Screen. It allows you to view in-depth real-time system monitoring such as temps and speeds, you can also control anything that is iCue compatible devices. You can also create custom one-touch actions and macros for your games and apps.

Specifications

it is a very compact design being only 5 inches diagonally across with a display resolution of 640×48 pixels. It has up to 256 customizable swipe to navigate screens with unique graphics and icons. On each screen, it will have up to 6 programmable virtual buttons with drag and drop graphics. You set it all up through the iCue software that you download when you have any devices that are compatible with iCue. You can use it as a stand-alone piece that would connect via USB, or you can attach it to the compatible keyboards listed to look more stylish. It also comes with the standard Corsair 24-month warranty.

Keyboard Compatability

As we have already mentioned this can be used on the stand-alone base that is supplied with it meaning you can have it anywhere on your desk, or you can attach it to the three compatible keyboards. The first one is the Corsair K70 MK.2 Low Profile keyboard which you can see a review here. The second option that you have is the K70 MK.2 normal profile keyboard which you can see the review here. The third keyboard would be the K95 Platinum which you can see the review here. The K95 keyboard shares the same fitting at the K70 MK.2 normal profile keyboard. This would give you the ability to keep it looking stylish and keeping it all integrated so it is there ready to use.

Customizability

You have a massive choice when it comes to customizing your Nexus, you can have one button per screen or 6, you can have real-time monitoring displayed, you can look at your fan speeds or even control your other Corsair devices. There is a massive variety to what you can do, If you don’t want these buttons then you can create your actions and marcos for your favorite games and apps within the iCue software that can be activated with a single touch. Along with this, you can program it to launch certain apps like discord to talk with your fellow gamers, you can open Spotify to listen to any songs you want and many more with one touch. As we have said you can control other corsair devices, for instance, you can adjust your mouse sensitivity, your headset equalizer all without having to leave your current application or game!

Where to Purchase

You can purchase this from a couple of places at the moment. The first place to go is obvious as it would be Corsair as this is the manufacture of the Nexus, they offer the software that allows you to use it to the full potential and they offer all of the products that are compatible with the Nexus. On the day of writing this, it is there is no stock at Corsair and you can pre-order it with Scan. Scan is due to have stock around 20th September this year.

Conclusion

Reading into this accessory it has the potential to be very impressive. It would make it a lot easier to operate your computer to control the different games and apps that you are running without actually having to interrupt any of them. Along with this, you can check all of your real-time readings without it having to be in the corner of your screen all the time, it would be right in front of you. It will make the general running of the computer a lot easier. Once there is more stock I will be looking at getting one and writing a review on how it helps me personally or if it doesn’t.

  1. This is a good example of a very specific sub niche. I have no idea what this is, well, a vague idea now, but the product information is laid out in a great way for readers who are looking for information about it. It basically helps you make sure that your computer isn’t overheating while playing Skyrim or something similar?

    • Thank you, and yes that is basically it. It loads of different options when it comes to what it is showing you on the screen. 

  2. Hi, Im BlogginMoma. Im still fairly new at this. With that being said, Im not always right either. 

    The overall apparence, is great.  Looks very profesional. But if i can be totally honest with you. For the first few mins of visiting your website, I wasnt sure exactly what i was looking at, or reading. Only when i continued to read farther, did i understand what your website was for. You are deffinatlly on the right track. I just think you need a little bit more explanation on to exactly what this product is. Some people are not very familar with things of this nature. I wish i could offer more, but really everything else looks great to me! Wish u the best. keep up the good work! 

    • Hi There, thank you very much for continuing to read through. I throughly appreciate the advice, I will have a think on how I can make it clearer for people who are new to computers ad this is what my whole website is based around! Thank you very much again
