Default Where to buy Vengeance RGB Keyboards

To better consolidate the links, I figured I would make a new thread so people can see where to buy the Vengeance RGB products. These are the keyboards (and 1 mouse) where the logo is using the "Sails" branding of our PC Enthusiasts Line-up rather than the "Swords" from our Corsair Gaming Line-up. Here is also a mini-FAQ in case some of you may have questions:

1.) What is the difference between the Corsair Vengeance RGB line-up versus the Corsair Gaming RGB line-up?


There is no difference between the two hardware line-ups except for the decal used as a logo on the keyboard. This is strictly an aesthetic issue.

2.) What is available as a Vengeance RGB product?


• Vengeance K70 RGB - Cherry MX Red – US, UK, Nordic Layouts
• Vengeance K70 RGB - Cherry MX Brown – US, UK Layouts
• Vengeance K95 RGB - Cherry MX Red – US, UK layouts
• Vengeance K70 Red LED - Cherry MX Red – US, UK layouts
• Vengeance K70 Red LED - Cherry MX Brown – US, UK layouts
• M65 RGB Black

3.) Are these permanent additions to the line-up?

These are offered for a limited time depending on the demand. As long as there is enough demand for these products, we'll continue to make them.

4.) Why can't I find them at my favorite e-tailer?


Distribution is based on their demand and how many units we have available. We're doing our best to fulfill all of the orders by our channel partners but as soon as they're available, we have found that the orders will sell out very quickly once consumers know about the availability. We recommend you contact your e-tailer for general information regarding availability so you know when to expect additional units for purchase.

I do not appreciate locking the other thread, this thread is not a useful replacement. None of these links carry the NA Vengence K70 RGB with Browns, the keyboard I had pre-ordered, then had to cancel due to Corsair changing the product I already pre-ordered.

Now I have been told that the only way to possibly get one, is to constantly lurk the corsair online store in case they might, at some point, come back in stock.

The other thread was a place to discuss this issue, this one feels like a bandaid.

So if I'm understanding correctly the m65 rgb (CH-9000053-NA) is only available thru Scan UK right now? Will it be available to US customers via Corsair webstore eventually?

I linked to what is available currently (in stock or for pre-orders), which includes the Cherry MX Brown Vengeance K70 on our website (and the UK versions of those on Scan and OCUK). You're welcome to continue discussing in this thread what is available but this thread is much more easier considering all the links will be in one place. I can confirm our web store is getting more shipments of the products but similar to all RGB products, they do sell out very quickly unfortunately.

On a side note, I want to emphasize that what a retailer decides to carry as a product is completely up to them. I understand it can be difficult that you may find Newegg or Amazon won't stock X product, but there are many reasons for this. It could be any combination of them not wanting to handle additional SKU's, lack of faith in the product being sold, lack of demand, etc. There are other factors that we can't control either after we give them the ETA on shipments (which for some retailers is straight from the factory to their warehouse). Our actions are pretty limited when it comes to these aforementioned products and is why we always insist on asking your favorite e-tailers for more information.

Is there any chance we could actually "pre-order" through the corsair site? All it allows us to do is to add to wishlist or check for retailers (which obviously leads to a blank window since none exist).

I don't see the Cherry brown RGB coming to other e-tailers any time soon based on this information, and honestly it would be a lot nicer to just be able to put in my order, and know it will ship when it ships, than to obsessively check my email every day for a wishlist update, then wind up checking the site anyway because I dont trust the email.

I submit this is better for corsair as well, as it gives you a much better picture of your actual demand than just guessing based on how fast the latest batch of insert small, probably 3-4 figure lot size> units sell out.

So the Amazon RGB keyboard shows the sails logo in silver, the Newegg has it in black. Which one is actually available right now? I had the same question for the K70 non-RGB.

So far there is NO way to order the NA layout from Europe (Italy), guess I'll keep waiting for a little while. I decided I'm gonna replace my 5 years old computer with a new one in a couple of months. I really do need a keyboard though, my current one is starting to fail

So no word at all on the K95 RGB MX blue UK variant? That is sad, had a pre-order sitting on Scan for a while now.

Also: Considering when most people contact e-tailers as you suggest all they have gotten back in the last few months is "We have no idea, Corsair hasn't told us when they're sending more stock" and the lack of communication from Corsair in general - Then I'm sorry, but this feels like something Corsair needs to explain to us instead of directing us to talk with e-tailers.

I apreciate the assistance in finding ones which ARE in stock, and I hope this thread is updated with new info whenever it is available, but it would be good to have a clear statement on why things are going so slowly (especially for the UK blues, which to my knowledge have never been in stock anywhere)

I still find it absolutely ridiculous that we can't get the NA-layout here in Europe.

I've been waiting for months now for the chance to buy the Vengeance K70 RGB Cherry MX Brown NA-layout, only to end up being told that we can't even get the NA-layout.

I don't think I can be bothered with even more waiting to see if Amazon will stock it.

According to the Scan product page (for the CH-9000093-UK) they aren't expecting stock until January 9th now, although their customer service rep. just told me it's looking more like January 15th.

We once tried doing pre-orders but then what ends up happening is we get hundreds of orders in and never enough stock to accommodate it. Then people get frustrated that their orders are cancelled.

I'll talk to our webstore to see if I can at least get accurate dates for you all who are watching the thread everyday.
