Springy sound coming from keys (Mechanical Keyboard)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I find it kind of weird cause some of my keys when released, makes a sound that a spring makes when released, kinda like a version of the door stopper being moved.

Is that suppose to be like that? Some of my keys don't generate that sound. I have brown switches.

Thanks smile.gif

It's a CM Storm Quickfire Pro, but does this "ping" affect me? Should I be worried?

It's, It's the Infamous CM Storm Ping!

I wouldn't worry about it. On my Filco Limited Edition Red Cherry it went away on it's own.

Not limited to the CM storm at all. My das with browns had the same thing.

It goes away or gets lighter in sound as time goes on. Besides, shouldn't you have headphones or speakers on or something?
