Sorry, tend to stay out of threads for hardware I don't have experience with personally. Using a K95 and I have not noticed a blue light that bright but I have noticed green seem to be a touch more than predominate at times depending on the color choice.

What I have seen on the other hand is the same thing you are illustrating with those images on my X-56 HOTAS. Granted those are apparently assembled with a mindset of screw QC (remind you of any other company?) but you should see what that does. Had to dig it out as I have been taking a break from ED for a while so its filthy (kat everywhere) but the color set is supposedly a blue-white. Pretty sure it isn't.

You can try toning down the blue a touch since if I recall right blue tends to be brighter than other colors and can over power stuff easily. Other than that not a whole lot you can do due to design.

Might be going a bit far there. Not defending Corsair in this but going off on people not responding when they might not have the item, or any possible ideas that might help.

You are allowed to be mad, but direct it at the right people.

Run through Google Translate so can't vouch for accuracy.

Podría ir un poco lejos allí. No estoy defendiendo a Corsair en esto, sino porque las personas no responden cuando es posible que no tengan el artículo, o cualquier idea posible que pueda ayudar.

Se le permite estar enojado, pero diríjalo a las personas adecuadas.

Ejecutar a través de Google Translate, por lo que no puede garantizar la exactitud.

Oh if you only knew how friendly I can be. :P Anyway, this next part is actually about the question.

Anyway, so finally settled on a color scheme for this system and have the G keys set to yellow (Fallout Blue/Yellow with a vintage FO3 CE bobble head perched on the video card staring at me with his dead accusing eyes). What I noticed was the same thing you saw with the light reflecting off the keys, and now that I know exactly what you are seeing appears to be due to how the key is designed, which is done in Germany by Cherry. All Corsair does is mount them basically.

Hope that helps even if it is not the answer you hoped for. As before I cannot vouch for accuracy.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Oh, si solo supieras lo amable que puedo ser. : P De todos modos, la siguiente parte es en realidad sobre la pregunta.

De todos modos, finalmente decidí usar un esquema de color para este sistema y ten las teclas G configuradas en amarillo (Fallout Blue / Yellow con una cabeza Vintage FO3 CE colgada en la tarjeta de video mirándome con sus ojos acusadores). Lo que noté fue lo mismo que viste con la luz reflejada en las teclas, y ahora que sé exactamente lo que estás viendo parece deberse a la forma en que se diseñó la tecla, que se realiza en Alemania por Cherry. Todo lo que hace Corsair es montarlos básicamente.

Espero que ayude incluso si no es la respuesta que esperaba. Como antes no puedo responder por exactitud.

Can't speak on the profile lights (K95 different style) but the light leakage appears to be normal, for lack of a better word, as I see what you were talking about. One thing that could be enhancing the effect is if the finish on the key caps is shinier than on mine. Doubt there is a difference but don't have that keyboard. But taking all things into account, well the mouse is a different issue as it should not sound like that, you are looking for consistency and not seeing it. Totally ok.

I can't explain why the light bar on the K95 looks like a colorblind individual QCd it, what with the color consistency of... yeah can't make that work lets just go with a solid sucks.

The decision to go with the diffuser they did on the MM800 that's completely different from the keyboard (at least it's colors are spot on, relatively speaking) makes no sense, I'll give you that.

Don't know if you have the headset stand but since we are getting it out, the colors on that are completely different in hue than the rest, closest to the MM800, so yeah, I get the consistency thing. It's like the South Park OJ defense, It just doesn't make sense (look it up).

And for a return to the keyboards, I agree with you that the light can be annoying. I have to look basically straight down to see it but its there.

First thing to focus on is that mouse. There is no way you should have to use that if that is the noise the scroll wheel is making. First thing I would do, is make a ticket then post it here. That way if someone comes in a day later and sees it they can look into the case and get somewhat up to speed. Next would be to send out a PM to Corsair Kevin, be nice :) and explain what the situation is. Third, and this is me knowing nothing about international, IF YOU ARE ABLE call the US tech support number on the chance you tend to get routed to a regional one. Be a bit easier to bypass a level or two of red tape.

(insert standard disclaimer here)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No puedo hablar sobre las luces de perfil (estilo K95 diferente) pero la fuga de luz parece ser normal, a falta de una palabra mejor, ya que veo de lo que hablaba. Una cosa que podría mejorar el efecto es si el acabado de las tapas de teclas es más brillante que en la mía. Duda que haya una diferencia pero no tengas ese teclado. Pero teniendo en cuenta todas las cosas, bueno, el mouse es un problema diferente, ya que no debe sonar así, usted está buscando coherencia y no la ve. Totalmente bien

No puedo explicar por qué la barra de luz en el K95 parece un QCd con daltonismo a los colores, con la consistencia de color de ... sí, no puede hacer que el trabajo nos deje ir con una succión sólida.

La decisión de elegir el difusor que hicieron en el MM800 que es completamente diferente del teclado (al menos sus colores son acertados, en términos relativos) no tiene sentido, le daré eso.

No sé si tiene el soporte para auriculares, pero como lo estamos sacando, los colores son completamente diferentes en tono que en el resto, más cercanos al MM800, así que sí, tengo la consistencia. Es como la defensa de South Park OJ, simplemente no tiene sentido (búsquelo).

Y para volver a los teclados, estoy de acuerdo contigo en que la luz puede ser molesta. Tengo que mirar básicamente hacia abajo para verlo pero está ahí.

Lo primero en lo que hay que centrarse es en ese ratón. No hay forma de que tenga que usar eso si ese es el ruido que está haciendo la rueda de desplazamiento. Lo primero que haría es hacer un boleto y luego publicarlo aquí. De esa manera, si alguien llega un día después y ve que puede investigar el caso y ponerse al día. Lo siguiente sería enviar un PM a Corsair Kevin, ser amable :) y explicar cuál es la situación. En tercer lugar, y este soy yo que no sabe nada sobre el tema internacional, SI TIENE LUGAR, llame al número de soporte técnico de los EE. UU. Sea un poco más fácil pasar por alto uno o dos niveles de burocracia.

From what I'm seeing, it's just the way the Cherry switches are designed. You'll notice a small gap in the switch housing where there's direct line of sight to the LED at certain angles, which happen to lead to reflection onto adjacent keys. I personally don't see it as an issue, but I'll pass this along.

What you are probably seeing is the blue shift light reflection on certain blended colors. Colors with a moderate blue value will cast it. Underneath the cap you are blending the colors and it's not exactly a paint mixer. Set your instant lighting (or solid/static) to red. Do you see the blue tint? (hopefully not). Same thing with green (0,255,0). With pure blue you drown it the whole board in blue and expect to see it. The more difficult colors are those in between blue->green and blue->red when, especially if you drift toward a whiter shade (and white itself). If you pop a single key cap off, you can see the light mixing zone. The light has to mix. That is the how these RGB lights work to make intermediate colors. You are going to see this on any RGB keyboard with open keys.

I think the real trick is going to be to stop looking for it. It's there, but I have to be consciously looking for it even in a dark room. The keyboard is new so you probably spend a lot of time staring at it now, but soon enough you will filter it out automatically. In a moderately lit room, I would think it near impossible to see at all. There is no reason to RMA the keyboard.

Yes, it’s going to be there on any of the boards that use the same LED and open design. It’s there on my two K95P, K70 LUX, and K70 Mk2. You do have to get over the top to see it. The key LEDs are on the top of the switch. My guess is the placement of the blue allows it be slightly dominant in certain blends. You can take a key off and look, but they are really tiny and there is nothing obvious about it.

So a few things you can do if it becomes an annoyance. Obviously color choice plays a part. Anything cycling through the blue shift side of white will show. However, you may be able to more easily solve this by taking the brightness down 1 position (or reducing the color brightness at the lighting level). Less intensity, less cast off. All of the Corsair keyboards are the open bottom design that deliberately lets light reflect. The contrasting model is the closed key cap that only lights the letter etching. Frankly, I prefer subtle and it was a bit hard to adjust to bright lights when I came to this type of design. I have tried other types over the years, but I always find them lacking in other areas and the light cast becomes of lesser importance than key feel, controls, etc. If you know you don’t like the open key style, there is no reason to try and live with it.
