Cooler Master SK650 White

In the world of PC building, there are a number of popular build themes that seem to become the norm such as Red/Black and Rainbow RGB builds. When doing a themed build, most builders will go the extra mile and buy peripherals such as keyboards, mice and headsets to match. One of the newer themes to hit popularity is the all-white build and Cooler Master has answered the call with their SK650 limited edition white keyboard. The SK650 White has the same feature set as the SK650 with Cherry MX low profile RGB red switches, extra flat keycaps, and on-the-fly controls. But Cooler Master has given the SK650 White a new fresh look with a silver brushed aluminum finish, white keycaps, and a detachable all-white wire.

Viper V765 Mechanical RGB Gaming Keyboard

The humble keyboard has come a long way from the original QWERTY plank, and yet at the same time, nothing much has changed. For most, you press a key get a character and life goes on. Gamers started demanding things like macro buttons to help get that last little edge in games, and their aesthetic demands led to things like RGB lighting. As often happens, this has spilled over into segments. The ability to program complex macros was found to be quite useful to power users and the productivity world where a few dedicated macro keys just weren’t enough. Viper has taken this to the limit with the V765 where every single key can be reprogrammed, turned into a macro or execute all manner of useful things while maintaining the sleek and highly customizable aesthetics gamers require. Let’s take a closer look at the V765 Mechanical RGB Gaming Keyboard!
