Which Keys Are Right?

Just wondering if anyone knows which set of replacement key caps I should buy for my K70 Rapid-fire. I noticed that the picture on the front of the box shows a longer Shift key which extends past the caps lock key however my shift key is much shorter. Likewise when I look at the accessories section, both sets of replacement keys that are available have a picture with the longer shift key. Is this a US / UK thing?

 

Cheers All!

I personally am not used to that layout...maybe the corsair webstore has a different keycap set, but you could get some cool custom ones for any missing keycaps? Or keep what you have?

Yes it's the CH-9000065-UK from those images in the other post. Would I just request the UK version in that case? The reason I want to explore this is because I want to make my own custom key caps with different icons printed on top but I also want them to look as close to the original keys as I can. I don't want to start defacing my original keys in case I mess up but likewise I don't want to buy cheap eBay keys that might end up looking different. The biggest issue I have is that I actually want to customise the left shift key and that is one of those that looks totally different from the rest.

Sounds like you saw the standard replacement keycaps. We only have North American layouts for those. However, we did recently release our new PBT Double Shot keycaps, which are a great upgrade in terms of feel and performance. They include the different regional keycaps for your specific keyboard layout. Link is below for both Black and White versions:

I see so there are no basic keys for the UK layout? I would opt for the other key caps but the reason I want them is so I can stencil my own designs on the top. I had planned to sand down the surface to reveal the transparent plastic then apply a stencil and spray over it. This wouldn't work with the double shot keys because of the way they are produced. Oh well, back to the drawing board on that idea...
