Default Thank you (CORSAIR K55)

I got the Corsair K55 keyboard and after using it for half a year spilled a cup of coffee on it. This is where I panicked and thought that the keyboard was done for. After trying to dry it out with towels, using compressed air and holding it upside down the keyboard was still working but the keys were messed up. Some keys were inputting 3 letters at once and so on. So I decided to disassemble it and see what I could do from the inside, at this point I was desperate and lost hope for this keyboard.
I was pleasantly surprised that the keyboard could be easily dismantled using a standard cross slot screwdriver and all the panels could be easily accessed. I used a soft cloth that I clean my glasses with and dried everything thoroughly. After assembling it back together the keyboard started to work perfectly! I guess the slight moisture that was on the panels was interfering with the signals! No electronic parts were fried! Thank you for this solid build!

TL;DR Spilled coffee on keyboard but it still works!
