From personal experience, Logitech has too much crappy plastic for the price, their software sucks, and their overall reliability across my range of their products hasn’t been good.

After having to replace a keyboard and mouse (G710+, G502) from them within a couple years, I won’t be buying anything else Logitech. For a few $ more, I got a CM MasterKeys Pro S to replace my broken G710, and it has way more solid build quality.

And the MasterKeys S, the version without RGB backlighting is in your price range on Amazon, with the longer lasting PBT keycaps that mine didn’t even come with.

I recently had a spill on my Coolermaster Masterkey S and some keys aren’t working anymore. I’ve tried pretty much everything but there’s no salvaging this.

I’ve tried to just get a replacement of just the exact same but when I go to Amazon it says all of Coolermaster’s keyboards are listed as Currently Unavailable. Just wanted to know if this was the case for anyone else.

I would recommend this CM Storm keyboard: Cooler Master MasterKeys S PBT- Tenkeyless Gaming Mechanical Keyboard, Cherry MX Blue w/ 4 Green Switches, Thick 1.5mm PBT Keycaps https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072FQS2YF/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_ChqmCb6BT1BWY. Real cherry switches with pbt caps under $100 is hard to beat.

That’s what I found at first glance. I’m not sure about the othersyou mentioned, but if they come with PBT caps you’re good to go. The big thing that will differentiate boards in the price point you’re talking about will be the caps, since razer and logitech both have pretty shitty abs caps. BUT, if rgb is more important to you than nice caps, you may have a hard time finding something else. And if you want to replace the caps, with razer you’re locked into very few sets due to the nonstandard bottom row. Logitech has even less options since they have their romer g switches and I don’t know if they even make PBT sets. In the end, those sales are actually pretty good, but it depends on what your priorities are.

No, It’s completely fine. 750W would allow you to virtually never come even remotely close to full load but 650W is more than enough.

Though, but please, don’t waste your money on a K68. It’s not “BAD” but it’s not that good. This is all around better and cheaper but it has no LEDs, if you want LEDs there’s a near identical board just w/o PBT keycaps.

Assuming you haven’t bought it already I’d strongly suggest getting a Ryzen 5 1600X for instance, ditch the AIO because the default fans are pretty mediocre anyways and replace it with a higher end air cooler and get some high clocked DDR4 to go with the Ryzen chip and OC said chip as well, it’d end up being somewhat cheaper and you’d get better performance in games that support >4 cores, even with for instance single threaded games the performance difference is minimal.

Regardless, I would also say get HD598s/DT770s over HyperX clouds as well, they’re not THAT much more expensive and they sound a lot better.

amazon has the cm masterkeys s with blue switches for $64. there’s an additional $10 rebate bringing it down to $54.

the full size with blues is $71. the rebate brings it to $61.

Here’s a great one that has really good keycaps so you won’t have to buy another set

My bad, I was going to suggest this one from amazon but it seems to be out of stock.

QFR isn’t made anymore. This is the newer model.
