If you dont bottom out i guess it doesnt matter. then again I think the noise itself is exacerbated by the fact that the keys are tapping on the aluminium base of my K70 when i bottom out. I dont think it would be as loud for a keyboard thats mainly made out of plastics. People will bottom out because theyre just used to that way of typing or they have extreme cases of OCD. Everyone types differently. I guess my typing is can be construed as 'heavy typing'????
