There are just about as many TKL LED mechs as full size LED mechs. The TKL ones are just from less mainstream brands.

I don't get it. Reds and black's are essentially already silent in their operation. The only sound you get is really from the bottoming out of the key. A o-ring basically makes that inaudible as well. rolleyes.gif

You get the sound from the keys springing back to the top, which o-rings don't help with. Besides, even if o-rings did everything, why question the manufacturer providing a new version with a different design to fix an issue that was popularly addressed only by enthusiasts in the know via a janky 3rd-party mod?

Would Red Silents + O-rings still reduce the noise even more or be useless/not possible? biggrin.gif Maybe it would even get in the way of the rgb light?

Here is a video comparing the the silent version to the standard cherry red =)

Thanks for posting this video.. Very good comparison between the two switches. Like we said, 30% quieter

Hey mister Joseph from corsair! Can you please tell me will the new strafe silent keyboards be available with mx silent blacks and reds or just reds? Thank you so much in advance.....can't wait to get one of these new keyboards.

And thank you thank you thank you to the person that posted the comparison vid above.....been looking for exactly this for days now. Demonstrates the difference wonderfully.
