Anyone with AMD CPU have problems with Mechanical Keyboards

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I could not get a Corsair K60 to work, nor a CoolerMaster. I want a mechanical keyboard, but none work with my machine. I have a mechanical keyboard at work with my Intel i7 2600, but my home rig will not take them. For example, the CoolerMaster worked on my work machine, but not on my home rig. Furthermore, after trying to dowload the latest drivers, no keyboard worked on my machine. Now I managed to get a PS2 keyboard to work, but still no USB will. I returned the keyboards, but I do strongly prefer them.

Does anyone with an AMD FX series chip use a mechanical keyboard? If so, what do you use?

AMD FX-8150 with Gigabyte 970 chipset MB.

Are you certain your USB chipset drivers are installed? If it is not, that can cause the problems.

A lot of the 990 chip sets and some of the 970 chipsets have issues with the NKRO implementation. Most Motherboard companies released updates BIOS which fixed these issues.

Also switching to 6KRO mode can also sometimes help, but BIOS update would be my recommendation
