I second the replkacing logo stuff, I'm not overly bothered about being stuck with this odd crab/heart thing on the top of my kb but I had always been hoping to get the sails when I finally came to try Corsair, will replacement stickers be sent out on request and/if it is possible to remove the emblem from the KB cleanly?

a needle and WD40 to remove it, print your own logo on photo paper then laminate it

Good suggestion, but unless you work in an office you won't have easy access to a laminator. Can't think of a UK shop that does that, certainly none in the town in West Yorkshire I live in.

Replacement stickers will not be sold.

Do we know if they also 'upped' the hardware in these new keyboards with the new logo to get rid of the 'flickering issue' ?

I was going by the fact that the OP was talking about 'new K70 RGB' with 'new logo' hence my question is the new logo K70 RGB will have improved hardware to get rid of the flickering issue or not.

The only changed again the logo. If they do change the hardware I think they will change also the name or somehow advertise it anyway.

I highly doubt it. The new hardware would have to have new firmware and possibly software, which means they wouldn't able to just start making them all of a sudden without making them a completely different model.

To be clear - we have not announced any new RGB keyboards. We cannot discuss rumored or unreleased products.

Why not ? You announced the (Ver. 1) RGB keyboards before they were released.

We announced the RGB keyboards as a technical preview at CES 2014. I can't speak as to why they announced it in this way instead of closer to the official product release date, not my place. In either case, that was an exception, not the rule.

So...

If I order a K70 RGB from the Corsair website am I then guaranteed to get one with the new logo?

How can I be sure if I order from any other place?

I don't think you have any guarantee actually, not right now at least. It is true that they have announced the new logo but they surely have still stock with the old logos to sell, there is no way to tell when the old logo stock will finish and the new one starts shipping.

If you want to be completely sure I think you'd have to wait a few months to be sure all the previous stock with old logo sells out.

1. Each product explicitly says which logo version it is. What you see is what you get.
2. We have not announced a K70 RGB with the new logo. You can't get what doesn't exist.
