    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: 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 and grip coated keycaps as the QuickFire Pro and Trigger, and like with all of our other keyboards, we let customers choose which Cherry MX switch they prefer instead of telling them what they want. 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, in EU we will carry Red switch version and in specific countries the blue switch version.

    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 TK integrates Cherry MX switches. These provide the QuickFire TK 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 TK Mechanical Gaming Keyboard in FPS, MMO, RTS, and other games.

    The QuickFire TK will be available in EU stores from 26th November, 2012. Price and availability may vary by region. Expected M.S.R.P €79 without VAT/TAX.

    Slide 4 is confusing. The pictures clearly show brown mx switches but it states black mx switches. Regardless, I might go for the brown one - the build quality looks good.

    Oh damn, there's some mistakes here I knew about, but I didn't realize they were in this marketing material.

    1. There's red, brown and blue switches - no black, apparently.

    2. The backplate for brown switches is going to be white, not brown.

    My thoughts exactly, LOL.


    I don't like the arrow keysm, HOME, PG UP etc/numpad overlap, but it looks pretty nice, don't think I read a price tho...
    Any word on a "TK" version of the Trigger? With maybe NKRO as well... (normal Trigger is 6KRO)... not that they're all that needed anyway.

    As opposed to TKL, or as opposed to a full board?

    I like these boards. I wish they had this layout though.
