Is there no chance for a brown switch black/red-led K70? Seems to me that a lot of typists who use illuminated keyboards prefer red/black combo for it not being as aggressive on the eyes as metallic blue.

Just heard that the K70 (and K95?) will be available with Cherry Brown or Cherry Blue in July! Thanks Corsair!

Too late for me though, I received my "Cherry Red" version last week. Very happy with the BIOS support as it allows me to use it with my KVM! My basic requirement was for a mechanical keyboard with good backlighting that would work with a KVM, and this one does. As far as I know it's the only 'board on the market that does.

I did install the "Chinese" rubber o-rings (Took about an hour) and I like the feel very much.

BTW the K70 does come with a plastic key puller, in the package with the optional keys. Much appreciated!

Obviously a lot of thought went into the design of this keyboard and I'm very happy with it. Probably the only thing I miss is that the media keys do not work in BIOS mode, but that may not be possible. Minor annoyance. Oh and the Scroll Lock light blinks all the time while in BIOS mode, can't get it to turn off. That may be due to something the KVM is doing. But a little piece of electrical tape took care of that problem!

I just picked up 24G of Corsair memory due to my good experience with they keyboard!

R&R

BUT, will the K70 brown switch come in a black/red-led layout at some point? I would prefer to buy the K70 over other brands - Don't force me to buy a Ducky please! :)

Copy+Paste the text on the information screen. (Small "i" icon at the top right hand corner).
Have you tried reinstalling the K95 software? Is the BIOS switch on the keyboard on a number instead of BIOS mode?

I'm not 100% sure if the K95 software uses this, but make sure K95Hid.exe is running in Task Manager. If it isn't, go to the install folder and double click it. Then try saving the profile to the K95 and enable hardware playback.

I don't think there is an firmware update for the K95.

Do you have any other gaming device software installed? If so, uninstall it and see if you can get the software to read the K95's firmware as that is causing the error message.
Have you tried reinstalling the software?
Latest BIOS and chipset drivers?

Default General queries

Hi there,
I'm thinking of purchasing a Vengeance K70 or K95, please can you help with the below?

1) Any plans for the K70 blue to be available in the black anodised finish like the red version? If so when?

2) Why does the numeric keypad for the K95 look like a plastic bolt on i.e. it isn't the same black anodised finish?

3) Although the K95 has blue background lighting are the key letters giving off white light or are they blue as a lot of the photos/videos seem to show the letters being lit in white light?

4) Will Cherry Brown versions of the above be able soon and if so when?

Thanks in advance
Chris

Question

Hello,

Is there going to be a K95 version with the big inverted L enter key? Don't really mind what's printed on the keys.

Thank you.
