I haven't read of any news for a white version. But it would be cool if they made it. You can always get some white Di Noc and wrap the keyboard in that. I'm doing something similar with my old Dell AT101W, warping it in black DiNoc.

Also, you can PM CMCarter, he a Cooler master rep. http://www.overclock.net/u/184613/cmcarter

I'm too lazy to read the previous pages (sorry) but did anybody see the thread that was made a month ago about the CM Storm Quick Fire Rapid not having printing anymore in a newer revision/batch?

Definitely want. It's going to be like Filco without the pinging issues. tongue.gif (Filco boards are still nice though)

Hello,

First post on this site. I've got a question about mechanical keyboards (the QuickFire Rapid specifically) and brown switches.

I own two boards right now, the Razer BlackWidow (blues) and the Quickfire Rapid (browns). I just purchased the QF Rapid a couple days ago because I wanted to avoid the loud clickiness of blues, but retain their feel.

The issue I'm having with my QF Rapid is that it has almost no tactical feedback to me. The keys push down really easy, and it feels to me like how folks describe red switches (really easy to push, linear, etc). I was expecting a blue feel with brown quiet, but instead it feels almost like a really light black switch board I tried in the past.

Is this normal for this keyboard? Is this how all browns feel? I'm basing my opinion on brown switches around this board, but from what I've read of how browns are supposed to feel, this is not right. However all the keys feel the same pressure-wise, and it is quieter than the blues. I can only feel the "bump" when pressing keys if I pay very close attention and press them very slowly. Otherwise, I never feel it during regular typing.

I average around 85 WPM so I am a decent typist speed-wise. Should I be able to feel the feedback on the browns better than this, or this is how they are?

Also, my P key craps out sometimes. I'm pretty sure that isn't normal. Anyone else's board do that?

Thanks for the input all.

-X

PS - I should state that I'm looking to get a keyboard that I love the feel of and that will last me many years. I don't want to go over $150 in price, so I've been looking at either the Black Widow 2013 Ultimate or a DAS Board. I almost bought a DAS, but instead went with the QF Rapid because I read it had very high build quality. So far, I would rate my Black Widow export board as better quality, and better feel. But, as I said, I'm wondering if I have a "normal" brown board. The feedback I get from the QF Rapid just doesn't feel like what I've researched brown switches should feel like.

I'm having some rattling in my space bar and backspace key. I'm not sure what's causing it. Anyone know how to fix it? It only happens on the right side of both keys.

Try removing the key, lubing it, and putting it back.

Filcos don't ping, they sing.

The Cm Storms still have a label on the back.

Maybe the link below will help? Blues are Tactile/Clicky switches and the browns are tactile/non-clicky switches. The "clicky noise" you hear on the browns are from the keys bottoming out. It's a good read and really helped me understand the diff switches.

The tactile bump is more pronounced on the blues than browns. Browns require less actuation force and can seem more linear.
