Some sources suggest controlling the leds is a large enough task to basically create a create a delay for the MCU when communicating back to the pc. Since pwm dimming is often used with leds (such as your phones brightness and some tv's), the mcu has to adjust and maintain pulses when the leds are to be powered. It may seem like a trivial task, but depending on the capabilities of the microcontroller, issues can arise. It also depends if the mcu has multiple cores. If its a single core/threaded mcu... yikes. It means a lot of interrupts on top of getting sensor data to the pc. Also depending on how much power the leds take, the mcu will heat up as electronics normally do, and microcontrollers can have quite the core clock variance due to increased temperatures. Had to deal with some of these issues and concepts in a microcontrollers course.

Your keyboard have leds? Might wanna invest in an ambient light source to see your keys. Seen a few sites discuss that this issue occurs with mice and keyboards. and your mouse only has a few leds... keyboards have many. Just remember there was a SSD that had so many leds, and they drew so much power, the ssd was hitting (idk) like 50+C. And basically overheated during boot process and would freeze shortly after starting. But I bet it looked pretty.

Not sure why it happens, probably just shoddy firmware. Apparently not trivial to fix though, otherwise Corsair should've addressed it by now. Might be worth to try and contact Corsair about it.

See if the issue persists after disabling it.

t0niX Hey guys,

I need some help to understand what's going on with my Corsair Glaive RGB Pro. I had the feeling my aiming in CS:GO is a little sluggish lately so I ran MouseTester 1.5.3.

- Polling Rate: 1000 Hz
- CPI: 800

I wonder what I'm able to do about those jumps from 1000 Hz to 500 Hz over and over again.

Have you ever seen this behavior before and might be able to help me out?

Thanks a lot!

This is from the readme.txt: "NOTE: While a game is running, Mouse Movement Recorder may show many red and greenlines, if the game continually re-positions the pointer to the middle of the screen.Those red and green lines do NOT mean that you have acceleration, they only mean that the re-positioned pointer has confused Mouse Movement Recorder.".

But this happens even on a desktop, can anyone explain this?
I had to run windows update to fix it. And marc fix does nothing. Its a meme unless your playing super old games...

Thanks for your reply! I do have it set to 100% (default) but I have mactype installed, and will try deinstalling that! Thanks for the idea! Just to be clear, I think I have followed pretty much all recommendations for best polling precision and latency, that's why I'm asking for input on this!

This is good enough for windows 10 1909.
