This guide will teach you how to change the color of your Corsair RAM using presets or custom picks.

Besides the performance, the aesthetics, cooling, and lighting effects are equally crucial for a nice-looking PC setup. Corsair RAM kits are among the best in the industry in terms of essential aspects like CAS Latency, Frequency, and more. I resorted to the Corsair iCUE software to change the color of my Corsair RAM and other accessories like the keyboard

Key Takeaways
  • Easily manage and control the RGB of all your PC components using Corsair’s iCUE software, even if they are from another manufacturer.
  • iCUE allows users to monitor several components’ temperatures, voltage ratings, and fan speeds.
  • It offers multiple preset murals, effects, and static colors while allowing color customization.

Tip: Besides color-changing, iCUE is a great tool for monitoring RAM voltage, temperature, and fan speed of the RAM, CPU, and GPU.

Choosing Presets

The software comes loaded with presets for a quick color change. The Temperature preset is fantastic for monitoring the temperature. You can dedicate a particular color to when your component’s temperature reaches a certain point.

For instance, when my RAM’s temperature exceeds 80°C, it will automatically change color to Red; thus, I can take measures to control overheating during video editing or overclocking

  1. Get iCUE: Download the iCUE software from Corsair’s website > Launch once installed.
  2. Select Lighting: Select the RAM > Click Hardware Lighting on the left pane to customize your RAM lighting.

Customized Lighting

With a wide array of colors, you can pick multiple combinations for your Corsair RAM to match the aesthetics of your RGB gaming room.

  1. Choose The RAM Stick: For custom static lighting colors, hit the + icon > Static Color > In the Quick Lighting Zone, select the RAM stick to customize. Highlight All to pick all the connected RAMs.
  2. Pick Color: Click on the color box to see an RGB wheel with preset colors and the option to select any custom colors.

I found iCUE very user-friendly and easy-to-navigate software that allowed me to manage different aspects of my PC components for customization and maintaining health. Moreover, the whole process barely took me five minutes. 

Unlike a few software where you need to restart your PC or the software every time to apply the changes, Corsair’s iCUE saved me from that hassle. So, if you plan on buying Corsair RAM for its RGB capabilities, I recommend utilizing this tool for efficient customization.
