The Rapid Trigger function is now available for the Corsair K70 MAX!


Corsair is definitely in the spotlight on today. Indeed, after the expansion of the Hydro X offer and the test of the AIO iCUE H170i RGB, we learn that the iCUE software has just been updated to offer the Rapid Trigger function for the K70 Max RGB keyboard recently tested on the site.

To benefit from Rapid Trigger, download iCUE 5.8

When the K70 Max RGB was released, this keyboard featured fully customizable switches via the brand’s software. This feature is equivalent to the SteelSeries Apex Pro, which we tested some time ago. Despite total configuration via iCUE, the switches function as switches. In other words, in order to reactivate the button, the accentuation point must be crossed on the way up, in order to be reactivated on the way down.

The aim of iCUE update 5.8 is to offer Rapid Trigger functionality. This feature, which was in beta until now, allows you to bypass the basic operation of a button. Indeed, with Rapid Trigger, you won’t need the switch to return to its initial position for the key to be reactivated. This means ultra-fast typing! Corsair promotes this feature for games such as Counter Strike 2 and Valorant .

This feature is now available to all, thanks to iCUE update 5.8. However, to benefit from it, you’ll need to go through a number of steps that can be a little complicated to follow, with keyboard shortcuts all over the place. Corsair has indicated, however, that this option will soon be available in a more accessible form, directly via the iCUE interface.

How do I activate Rapid Trigger?

To activate this new option for the K70 Max RGB, first update Corsair’s software, then close it. Make sure it’s closed in your system tray, too.

Next, hold down the FN key and the Win Lock key on the keyboard (padlock key). Continue by holding down FN and the menu key (paper key) for two seconds.

This will illuminate keys 2 to on the keyboard. Now all you have to do is select the desired actuation value from the available digits. The distances below are given in millimeters and correspond to the distance the switch must travel upwards before it can be activated again!

  • 2 = 0.2 mm
  • 3 = 0.3 mm
  • 4 = 0.4 mm
  • 5 = 0.5 mm
  • 6 = 0.6 mm
  • 7 = 0,7 mm
  • 8 = 0,8 mm
  • 9 = 0.9 mm
  • 0 = 1.0 mm
  • – = 1.1 mm
  • = 1.2 mm

Now, to close this parameter mode, press FN and the Menu key. To exit, press FN and Win Lock again.
