post #14031 of 14551
I just did a new build and i swear my office is starting to look like an episode of pimp my ride. Everything inside my case is lit in red. So i go out to get a Razer keyboard and Mouse (Which i love the feel of both) But what is driving me insane is that the mouse lights up in Blue and the keyboard only lights up in fluorescent green mad.gif

I just bought them yesterday and would like to keep them but i cant get over the fact that my office is starting to look like the spectrum of a rainbow. i would love for all of them to match in red to stay with the theme....

Sorry guys /rant over

You can see if you can get a Mass Effect 3 or Dragon Age 3 version of the Black Widow Ultimate. 

 

Or you could mod your board to replace the LEDs.

Cooler Master Storm Trigger is another good option for you. Thermaltake Meka G-Unit Illuminated Edition or MEKA G1 Illuminated Edition also would fit into that red LED backlit mechanical gaming keyboard niche.

 

MEKA G1 & Storm Trigger are the two cheapest, but the MEKA G1 doesn't have Macro Keys.

Hey guys, im new to this thread and made this account just to get some advice from you guys, so what ive done is that ive ordered a full white blank keycap set from wasdkeyboards.com for my filco majestouch 2 keyboard and the problem is that when i got the keycaps i had no idea where to actually put the keys aka i have no idea which keys are the numpad, f1-f12, wasd etc so if anyone can help me out here i would greatly appreciate it!


Edit: I found out that i had the row's engraved under the keycap and in that way i could get them into the right spot, this is the result:

some keys are thicker than others on keyboards, like the qwerty line is higher for example, best way to go about it is take 1 key off at a time to determine the row height (that is if the wasd keysets have different row heights too, if there all the same height then it wont matter) then get a wasd one exactly the same size and work it out like that until u cover the whole keyboard.

Looks right, try running your finger across each row to see if you can feel any keys that are in the wrong place.
