Corsair Employees RAM GUY Posted May 17, 2013 Corsair Employees Share Posted May 17, 2013 Our Corsair K70 has been released for a few weeks now and has been a great success. However, we have been getting a few questions about it so we thought a FAQ would help in addressing them. First we have this video that Jeff and Jason from Corsair did with our friends at Tek Syndicate that will show the keyboard in action: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLQ7b08W1JA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLQ7b08W1JA[/ame] We also have some of the top questions posted here that we’ve gotten from our users. 1.) What is the difference between the K60 and K70? The K70 is fully mechanical—every key has a Cherry MX switch under it now. Additionally K70 features key-by-key customizable backlighting, a full length wrist rest and an updated set of contoured FPS keycaps that work with backlighting. 2.) How do I enable the “reactive typing” feature? First, press the LED program button 1-2 times until you are in a mode where all keys are unlit. Then hold down the control key and touch the LED program again. To exit reactive typing mode, hold the control key and press the LED program key again. 3.) How do I save my LED Key pattern? To create your own custom LED light settings, press and hold the LED program button until the red ring starts blinking (about 5 seconds). Press the keys you’d like to change to turn the individual LED on or off and then press and hold the LED program button again to save those settings. 4.) How do I reset the keyboard lighting pattern to default? Hold down the LED program button for 5 seconds. Pressing the brightness button will toggle between all lights on, all lights off, and programmed backlight pattern. This allows you to either start your programming with all lights on, off, or the last custom configuration for easy setup. 5.) Is it possible to save multiple profiles? K70 allows you to save one light profile to the onboard memory. K95 allows you to save three, one for each of the M keys (M1, M2 and M3). 6.) What do numbers means on the BIOS Switch? The BIOS switch both adjusts the polling rate and allows you to turn off advanced keyboard features for compatibility with certain motherboard BIOS and KVM switches. Settings of 1, 2, 4, and 8 are millisecond polling rates (1ms = 1000hz). Switching to BIOS reduces the polling rate and turns off other features for maximum compatibility. By default we ship at 1ms (1000Hz) and most gamers will prefer to just use the setting. 7.) Why does my scroll lock button flash when I enable BIOS mode? The scroll lock, caps lock, and num lock will all flash to signal you have set the keyboard to BIOS mode. The notification is to remind you that you're in BIOS mode (104 Key Mode, Media Keys, Windows Key, and Software Functions are disabled). 8.) I love the new FPS type red keycaps. Can I use them for the K60/K90/K95 and how can I order them? The new contoured keycaps will work with both backlit and non-backlit Corsair keyboards and are compatible with K60, K70, K90 and K95.
