Keyboards and mice to a gamer are like the shield and sword a fighter uses. Every computer user needs the right equipment to “take to battle”. Choosing your equipment is sometimes trial and error, not every keyboard is made equal. With all the different styles and choices of keys alone, picking one best fitting your needs may be a bit formidable. Thankfully here at ProClockers we have the task of testing them out and letting our readers know what is a good choice for them. G.Skill has sent us there Ripjaws KM570 RGB keyboard to test out to see if this is what we would take to battle! This G.Skill Keyboard is simple yet functional and includes some important features that will meet the standards of most PC users.
Competitive gaming has been around since about 30 seconds after the first multi-player computer game was compiled, and has finally gained main-stream attention in the last several years with the recognition of E-sports. Millions of gamers go toe to toe around the world every day across many genera’s, but none require the split second precision and timing of First Person Shooters. A single millisecond delay anywhere can mean the difference between a win and a loss, and where the proverbial ‘rubber meets the road’ for most is the humble keyboard. There are a great many gaming oriented keyboards on the market with a myriad of ‘features’ targeted at gamers in general. Lights, Macro keys, and many other gimmicks just don’t apply to the FPS gamer who values speed and accuracy above all else. Kingston might have the answer in their new HyperX Alloy FPS mechanical keyboard. A slim profile for maximum portability and mouse area on your desk, as well as lightning fast Cherry MX Blue switches lurking beneath no-slip textured keycaps in the most critical areas might make this the ultimate weapon in the FPS gamer’s arsenal.
Gaming Keyboards are all the rage these days and near the top of almost everyone’s wish list, but what exactly is a ‘gaming keyboard’? Well, like anything else gaming oriented these days, it’s all the little extras above and beyond, such as better switches and fancy lighting. In this case, Tesoro has created highly tuned mechanical switches with very short actuation distance for lightning fast input. It also includes full RGB Lighting and an onboard 32bit Arm Cortex Processor giving you the power to program every single button and light on the keyboard to adapt to any scenario.

You’d be hard pressed to find an enthusiast these days without a mechanical keyboard. With so many companies producing peripherals these days, they seem to be everywhere. That being said, any company can hire a Chinese manufacturer to slap their name on a cheapo plastic keyboard with generic switches. At first, it’s great. However, will it stand the test of time? Probably not. To get a well built, sturdy keyboard that’ll last, you need a good name, a name you trust. One of the most trustworthy names in the industry has to be G.Skill. Known for making of some of, if not the best ram on the market, G.Skill has been a fan favorite for years. Now they have stepped into the peripheral market with their KM780R RGB mechanical keyboard. But can a company best known for ram and storage devices produce a keyboard that can live up to their name? I’d like to that the good people at G.Skill for providing Pro Clockers with the KM780R and allowing this review to happen. Now, let’s see how the KM780R stands up to the competition.
One of the most popular features on any peripheral these days is RGB backlighting. To many people, the added cost that comes with it just isn’t worth putting out. When it comes to keyboards, RGB backlighting can get rather expensive. One with both a rugged build quality, beautiful design and real mechanical switches. Well the people at Azio may have delivered that with their MGK 1 RGB backlit mechanical keyboard. But can it live up to the expectations of gamers and enthusiasts a like? Let’s find out.
It seems these days, everyone owns a mechanical keyboard. More often than not, when asked the brand, the reply is usually one of the larger companies. Companies such as Corsair and Logitech. However, they aren’t the only companies making mechanical keyboards. Fnatic, best known as an E-Sports team, now has their own mechanical keyboard. But can they compete with some of the bigger names in the industry? Will they be another name in a crowd of companies making mechanical keyboards? Or will they dominate like in the E-Sports arena? We at Proclockers would like to thank the people at Fnatic for the opportunity to review their keyboard. Let’s see how it holds up to the competition.
