    Cooler Master, an industry leading case, thermal solution, gaming gear, and mobile accessory manufacturer, is proud to announce the latest gaming Keyboard in its CM Storm line. The QuickFire TK is a compact, steel-reinforced, fully backlit mechanical gaming Keyboard. While as compact and lightweight as the QuickFire Rapid, it features a complete NumPad block. So you have more deskspace for your mouse and can switch between Game mode and Numpad mode - no compromise!

    On top of that, the QuickFire TK comes with NKRO over USB and the usual CM Storm Key combos let you adjust the Backlight, access Multimedia commands and lock the Windows keys, giving the QuickFire TK some serious punch for its size.

    The QuickFire TK comes with the same durable, laser etched, matt, grip coated keycaps as the QuickFire Pro and Trigger, and as always we let our customers choose which Cherry MX switch they prefer. It features the same removable USB cable, cable routing groves on the back, large anti-slip pads and stand-offs with rubber feet.

    What's new is that the steel plate now comes coated in the same color as the Cherry MX switch, and the blue switch version even has blue LED backlight.

    On top of that the FN key can now be locked by holding it for 3 seconds, making it easier and more convenient to use the MultiMedia Shortcuts and adjust the LED Backlight.

    Long-Life Cherry MX Switches
    Offering the best available mechanical hardware, QuickFire TX integrates Cherry MX switches. These provide the QuickFire TX with the ability to respond to, and recover from, furious button presses with almost zero lag. Vastly improve your gaming actions per minute by utilizing a QuickFire TX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard in FPS, MMO, RTS, and other games.

    The QuickFire TK will be available Q4 2012. Price and availability may vary by region. Please consult your local Cooler Master Rep for more information.

    Oh hell yes, I've been waiting for a keyboard with a layout like this one. The big test will be whether or not it's on par with the Rapid, quality-wise.

    This is nice. Been looking at a 10 keyless version but this seems even better.

    I was interested in the older rapid fire design but the lack of a Num pad and the excessive branding scared me away. Definitely going to give this a look.

    Cool.

    The excessive branding is the only reason I didn't pull the trigger on a rapid actually. xD

    If i had to get a smaller KB, this would be it, I just can't work without a numpad.

    Holding FN for 3 seconds might be annoying for some though. I prefer the older method of pressing it once and it sticks till pressed again.

    that is exactly what this keyboard does, unfortunately the razer keyboard is larger than it has to be.
