Question Is Key-chattering common on Corsair Keyboards?

I bought a K65 Rapidfire about 6 weeks ago, and realised a few days ago, that my C key is pressing twice at times.

I'm currently using Key-chattering Fix software to see how common it occurs.

I have cleaned it with 70% Isopropyl Alcohol, and it seems to have reduced its chattering very significantly (before it, I got 5 cases in a single night, now maybe only once). However, it is still not fully eliminated.

I know that the Key-chattering Fix software can rectify this issue, but the problem is that it seems a little like Autohotkey, which I worry about getting banned if I use it on games with VAC. It also interferes with my Autohotkey scripts for Tetris, which I play a lot, and must turn it off when I use AHK.

Is this problem common?

I'm thinking of RMAing my keyboard, but if I get another keyboard with the same issues, I might have to RMA it again and so on. If I had foreseen this, I would have just gotten another brand. After reading the forums here, it seems that a lot of people get it too.

I'm getting very frustrated and paranoid over this keyboard.

You might not want an employee's statement, but I don't personally think it's any more common than any other mechanical using the type of mechanical switch Cherry makes. It does happen though. If, for any reason, a keyswitch does not terminate an entry, keychatter can happen.
