Default Flickering

I just noticed that the lights on my RGB keyboard occasionally flicker. Is this normal?

Yeah exactly. I noticed it when I put part of my keyboard to gradient. Number 4 on my numpad switches to orange for a millisecond when white sometimes and there are also some other keys. Don't really know if it's normal :/.

Doesn't bug me too much, could just be the software.

Yeah doesn't bother me either unless you look at it, but still it's comforting to know that I'm not the only one with it.

It's happen on my K70 RGB Rapidfire too but very rarely. I only notice it maybe once a day.
On mine it's total random which key and which color.

Ok thanks, maybe it's software related like krazykid said.

For some reason your dropping a color packet every once in a while, try changing USB ports.

Hmmh... How do you know this and I already have the keyboard USB header in USB 3.0 so how would switching it change anything? Has this worked with some other ppl?

Changing USB ports doesn't work for me..
I believe that its software problem.. new led drivers without "optimization" or something? :)

Try this:
> Rainbow Wave effect to left or right, on slow speed
> then just stare your keyboard for minute you should see flickering
> if so.. it must be software issue

Try using USB 2.

As it turns out, USB 3.0 is actually trash. It has a tendency to drop packets a lot, which, with file transfers, is fine, since the system notices and can send the data again. On the other hand, it's too late to send the packet again with a keyboard that's displaying 40 frames per second of effects.

Edit: I tested it again today and now I got 3 flickers per minute... still looks like droped USB-packages. (using USB3)

Could be the leds, you have to put into perspective that machines manufacture these leds and keyboards.
