I never said you didn't :-)

I heavily considered the Quickfire but in the end chose the G1 Prime due to the USB/Mic/Headphone jacks, this obviously isn't the main feature of the keyboard but i know i will personally use it a lot and as a side note I like their design better. Something about the quickfire looks bleh to me i have no idea why. Perhaps it looks better in person but the pics turned me off for no specific reason.

Now your cases on the other hand.. I think those are pretty sexy and I will be in the market for a new case as soon as I'm ready to upgrade my CPU and my Mobo... so you will certainly be on the top of that list as well.. :-)

Hello everyone and firstly thank you for the guide.

I have a small issue with my g6v2 spacebar (after i spilt juice on it...now waiting on wd40 order). When i press the side of the spacebar with my righthand thumb sometimes it makes the other side (left side of the spacebar) pop out and it is so annoying. Do you guys have any idea on how to fix this?

Thank you

wd40 is probably a bad idea, I would advise against using it.

Try taking the spacebar off and checking the stabilizer. Something wrong there would be my guess... Or maybe just press down on it if it's not snapped down on that side.

It probably needs more cleaning. Q-tips and non-residue cleaner would be best. Water even if you have nothing else. Dry

Then use a Di-electric grease. Silicon grease would be best. The oil that comes in an electric razor may work, I am not sure. Assuming you don''t have tool like items due to lace of WD40.

Yes, WD40 is great! But not what you want here. The penetrating part of it is bad for circuits.

Thank you for the replies

I've spilt the juice about almost one week ago now. Because I'm a student and the city i live in doesn't really have much i have to wait for amazon orders to get products. So wd40 is a bad idea then frown.gif...and i was so pumped to receive it tomorrow and fix it once and for all...
I guess i'll order a silicone grease now.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Servisol-Silicone-Grease-50G/dp/B000L97ZPI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1368553454&sr=8-1&keywords=silicone+grease
would this silicone grease work?

Regards,
Radu

Before using anything on it, have you tried taking the spacebar off and seeing if the stabilizers are stuck or sticking? I would start with that.

i've taken all the keys off and cleaned the keycaps ...the stabilizer is underneath the switches i guess so i would have to take apart the keyboard? (still looking for videos on how to...not to break my keyboard)....the stablizer buttons on the sides (the small ones) are both "down" so to say...like i can't press either of them...but once i put the spacebar on i can use the side of the spacebar ....it feels more like the slot in which the side stabilizers should go in has more space than their shape....

Oh. That does not have a stabiliser, that has the guide slot things... I have not used that type. I thought they always used a stabiliser actually, a bent metal wire like thing...

First, take all the key caps, specially the bar, and wash them in hot water and dish soap, dry well. Let them soak if needed. Make sure they is clean.
Then yes, that grease should help. Where are you at that has no store that caries it local? Any simple DIY or hardware store should have some. Heck, go to the shop teacher in your school and ask him or her.

The CM Storm QF Rapid TK is a no brainier! Get that one. Backlighting and full 10keys for same price as a Rapid? Wow. That is a great board. The SteelSeries 7G is a good deal if you really must have a second option and Corsairs are good boards too, but nothing comes close to CM TK in that list. CM has it smile.gif

Ya, I would get the TK over most of them, even if it was more $$.
