Long known in the PC communities as a manufacturer delivering on promises of peripherals and kit with just that little something extra when it comes to invention and ingenuity, Corsair have now turned their trained eye to the gaming market with their new range of target specific treats.
Top of the list of Corsair wizardry is the latest batch of keyboards in the all-new ‘RGB Range’. This cracking collection of finger-friendly lovelies look all set to take the world of the online gamer by storm with their second-to-none style, features and the near patented Corsair reputation for peak performance in all area’s.
K95 RGB, K70 RGB, and K65 Gaming Keyboards
With their colour-customizable, 16.8 million colour backlighting, the K95 RGB, K70 RGB, and K65 RGB are the headliners of the Corsair Gaming brand. All three keyboards use only German-made Cherry MX RGB mechanical key switches as part of an exclusive-to-launch partnership with Cherry.
Each key switch is built with the exacting precision of Cherry’s self-cleaning, corrosion-proof Gold-Crosspoint electrical contacts, and with over five billion sold, Cherry MX mechanical key switches are the premier choice of professional gamers and enthusiasts who demand uncompromising reliability and performance. Combined with Corsair Gaming’s distinctive aircraft-grade aluminium baseplate, Cherry MX RGB key switches deliver a professional-level gaming keyboard that ensures both consistency and accuracy with the touch of every key.
The K95, K70, and K65 RGB keyboards exhibit Corsair’s hallmark features: sleek design, ultra-precision components, and sturdy construction that guarantee long-lasting performance.

Corsair Gaming understands that gamers demand choice when it comes to their hardware, so the K95, K70, and K65 RGBs cater to your every need – including size.
