I haven't looked at the video of yours, but from looking at the pictures in the article, it looks like you're using Z170 platform?... And you mention you can make them static?.
Just a FYI to anyone who considers purchasing these, on X99 the only option for now is breathing. I've selected the static option in Corsair Link on my blue ones, but they do still breath.
Corsair Customer Support said that they are working hard at trying to find the issue as to why static isn't working on X99. So mine's are breathing at the moment, but would really like for them to be static.
