Corsair has created its own RGB system with iCUE – and is completely in line with the trend. In addition to fans, RGB strips and memory, there are also peripherals with RGB lighting to create an attractive setup. With the iCUE LT100, Corsair has launched light columns including headset stands. This set consists of two light columns with 46 RGB LEDs each – in addition, you can purchase further light columns as an expansion kit. We have tested the basic set for you in detail.

Scope of delivery and workmanship
At this point Corsair must already be praised. The unboxing feeling is great, it is nicely packed and you are happy when you open the package. Even if they are small details – the premium price is noticeable in such places.
In addition to the columns and stands, three cables are included – one for connecting the power to a normal power outlet, one for connecting between the columns and lastly the USB cable for connection to the computer. Here we use micro-USB – USB-C would be nice as a new standard. This does not cause any problems, but in a future-oriented way it would be the more sensible connection. On the main column there is a single button to control the RGB functions. If you don’t want to use the PC for controlling at the moment, you can also change the lighting with this button. You also get an attachment to convert a column in addition to the headset stand. The headset stand is put on the column from above, additionally it can be fixed with pre-mounted adhesive tape.
The workmanship and choice of materials is convincing throughout. The aluminium columns fit perfectly into the prefabricated holes, the cables can be simply inserted. The logo on the front of the feet gives the whole thing a high-quality look – but the headset holder stands out clearly. This is a simple plastic part which is glued – from the feeling it looks very forced and not considered in the original product concept.
The assembly is so easy that Corsair even explains it without pictures in the enclosed instructions. The columns are plugged into the feet, the cables are plugged into the appropriate ports – that’s it. The columns can be removed from the foot at any time and turned if necessary.
