    Dang I hate blue backlit, I wish you could do RGB...
    I have eyes that makes it hard to see blue keys for real. I have a Saitek Eclipse II and when I'm on blue my eyes just cant focus, but if I switch to the Red or Purple then I can see the keys just fine.

    So why did Gigabyte choose to locate the USB and audio/mic connections to the right of the keyboard, as opposed to the back? Oh I know, when testing the keyboard NO ONE testing it had a mousepad/mouse to the right of their keyboard. Genius!
