Cherry MX Red

Mechanical keyboards utilize a different type of key switch technology for a more durable and unique typing experience. The Cherry MX Red switch has an actuation force of 45g and features a linear travel with no tactile bump. This can be beneficial for users who don't need the tactility of other switches. Additionally, with close actuation and release points, Cherry MX Red switches allow for easier double-tapping. Unlike Cherry MX Blue switches, these do not have an audible "click" mechanism, allowing for a quieter operation. Noise generated from this keyboard will be from the key either springing back into place or "bottoming out" – making contact with the back plate after a particularly hard press.

Customized Profiles

By downloading MSI's Gaming Center software, you can configure your own custom macro and lighting profiles for specific games and easily switch between them when needed.

MSI Mystic Light

With MSI Mystic Light, this keyboard provides you with millions of colors and multiple effects to choose from. You can even download the Mystic Light sync software to coordinate your lighting with other RGB compatible components and peripherals.

Gaming Mode

Activate Gaming Mode by pressing the function and Windows keys for N-key rollover, which ensures your commands are precisely and accurately recognized, regardless of how complicated your multi-key inputs are.

Hotkeys for Hardware Control

Using the function key and the indicated hotkeys on the keyboard, you can have direct control over your MSI gaming motherboard and graphics card. Switch through three performance modes: OC, Gaming, and Silent whenever you want without having to leave your game.

USB Pass-Through Port

Located at the top right of the keyboard is a USB 2.0 Type-A pass-through port that you can use to connect other peripherals such as a flash drive, mouse, or gaming headset. It also supports up to 500 mAh charging.

Included Keycaps

This keyboard comes with four metal zinc alloy WASD keycaps as well as twelve double-injection rubber keycaps. Use the included keycap removal tool to swap the keys you need.
