Strafe RGB MX Silent is designed for precision control, advanced customization, and ultra-quiet operation. 100% Cherry MX Silent key switches are German built with gold-cross point contacts, gold-plated closures, and pressure-resistant metal alloy springs for the precise control, feel, and responsiveness you need for a competitive advantage. Each key is individually addressable at your command for a virtually unlimited backlighting customization and sophisticated animations. The result is an ultra-quiet, professional grade keyboard that's up to 30% quieter than other mechanical gaming keyboards.
Features • 100% Cherry MX Silent gaming key switches: Exclusive patented noise reduction technology makes Strafe RGB MX Silent 30% quieter than other mechanical gaming keyboards.
• Multi-colour dynamic backlighting: Brilliant RGB backlighting enhances the experience with virtually unlimited lighting adjustability.
• Fully programmable: Reassign any key or set up the most extreme macros for advanced gaming.
• USB pass-through port: Positioned for uninterrupted game play and ready for your mouse, wireless headset adapter, or your phone.
• Detachable soft-touch wrist rest: Provides the comfort you need for marathon gaming sessions.
• Full spectrum colour: CUE Link connects your Corsair RGB keyboard, mouse, and headset to deliver the ultimate lighting experience.
• FPS/MOBA keycap sets: Textured and contoured keycaps for maximum grip and enhanced feel.
• Gaming Grade Circuitry: 100% anti-ghosting with 104 key rollover on USB ensures no matter how fast your play, all your keypresses register.
• Easy-access multimedia controls: Make on-the-fly audio adjustments without interrupting your game.

Use the Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) to design your own lighting patterns and animations. Here's just a sample of what you can do:
• Static lighting: Change any key on the keyboard to a colour and brightness setting of your choice. You can create, save, and load custom patterns for your favourite games.
• Colour cycling: Cycle through multiple colours with your choice of speed and colour palettes. You can set either the whole keyboard to scroll, or just the keys you want.
• Waves and ripples: Customize the colour palette, direction, duration, and velocity, and have the wave flow across the entire keyboard, or just the keys you want.
• Reactive typing: Set up single-key reactive typing, or create a multi-key ripple effect. You can choose single-layer lighting, where keys light up as you type, or multi-layer, and have the keys change colour.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cool keyboard this keyboard is my first mechanical EVER. its pretty cool looking with al these lightining effects. the keys feel soft, sometimes i accidentally press keys because i am used to scissor keys and i tend to leave my fingers hang on the keys, but this keyboard is sensitive. i still have to get used to these big keys, i most of the time misstype or missclick a gun ingame... but other than that i love it. should last me for 5 years.HOPEFULLY. 27 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A quality keybaord, if a little bit pricey. Firstly, I'm no PC gamer...I bought this keyboard because I need backlighting and I prefer mechanical keyboards over the rubber dome type. I mentioned it's pricey but I have to say, you do get what you pay for I guess. Very well built keyboard; albeit all plastic it's very robust and has a good weighty feel to it. The backlighting is excellent; ALL keys are well and evenly lit with 3 levels of intensity as well as OFF. In regards to the 'silent' aspect, which is what will be attracting a lot of people I would imagine, it's not silent in the true sense of the word but then I think anyone knowing mechanical keyboards wouldn't expect it to be but...it is only marginally louder than a rubber domed keyboard and certainly a lot quieter than the previous mechanical keyboard I owned. The illumination...to be honest, just blown away by how configurable the lighting actually is; for me, I have profiles set up for various programs to colour code individual keys and as I switch between these programs so the keyboard alters the colour scheme accordingly. If you want to be amazed just go to your favourite video channel and take look at the demos. The software for configuring lighting and macros etc also covers Corsair RGB mice which was a bonus. I really can't fault this keyboard...well, maybe a couple of things but they are personal preference I suppose: For the price I would have liked a braided cable and not a thick rubber/plastic thing and possibly the addition of a scroll wheel for volume. I realise though that this is predominantly a gaming keyboard so I doubt that the latter is a big deal in the middle of a game, especially when using headphones. If you're in any doubt about laying at this sort of money for a keyboard like I was but you have the money...buy it, you'll be happy with the result. 15 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth a buy Very well made, solid, leds are very bright, you can customise just about everything on the keyboard, but the options are very complicated, you can download other people's configs though and use them if they are to your liking 06 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Strafe RGB Nice keyboard, unlimited colours, easy to set up and oh so quiet. I had a clicky clacky mechanical keyboard that kept the house awake during late night gaming sessions, got this, and the house sleeps soundly while I save the universe. Highly recommended if you are after a quiet mechanical keyboard with spangly colours. 25 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really solid, colourful piece of kit! Fantastic keyboard, i purchased this for gaming purposes because the customization is endless. Keys feel almost silky and very solid. WSAD and space bar key have a rubber type grip making them easy to feel for. I'm glad i purchased this particular keyboard as the MX SILENT keys really are quiet. Individual key colour combinations are endless, and fun! 11 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by nicely made quality keyboard great keyboard - takes a while to set-up lighting - quality feel to keyboard 09 January 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by One trick pony... This keyboard is not really for typists. I wanted it for the new silent MX switches and assumed that the complicated lighting tricks the keyboard can do would include plain white backlighting. But no. I could not get plain white - light blue was the nearest I got. The worst aspect is the white backplate on which all the keys sit as this reflects the colours too strongly and delineates the gaps between keys distractingly. So, good if you play games and like the funny lighting, not so good for typing. However, the silent switches are good to type with. 01 January 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Decent keyboard but not worth the money Ordered this with the Scimitar rgb mouse for christmas for myself. The mouse is a total let down (review waiting to go live) but I'm happy to report the keyboard is much better. Firstly unlike the mouse, this just works. The lighting is great and CUE although a bit cumbersome to start with is capable of some amazing lighting effects. The silent keys are actually good to type on (touch typing is good on this keyboard). My major criticism would be the build quality, it feels cheap to be bluntly honest. Feels a bit rubbish compared to a ducky shine or the logitech g910 spark (both which I have). Safe to say that the Corsair only (for the time being) "mx silent switches" are inflating the price of this keyboard well beyond what its actually worth. They aren't silent as the name suggests rather produce a dull thud than click when pressed, but are still quite audible. All in all a nice keyboard but at this price there is much better to be had, Corsair quality seems to be seriously lacking since they first made their name. Great service from Scan no complaints there at all :p 29 December 2015
