The limited-edition collection is part of a range of HyperX brand storylines and marketing activities that TimTheTatMan is supporting as a HyperX Hero and ambassador.

Comprised of products personally selected by TimTheTatMan as his peripherals of choice, the HyperX x TimTheTatMan custom collection features a custom yellow and black colorway and design inspired by TimTheTatMan.

HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset: The limited-edition Cloud Alpha features a striking design inspired by TimTheTatMan including a new yellow and black colorway with premium black memory foam, an expanded headband and softer, more pliable leatherette. The durable aluminium frame is designed for the rigors of daily play, and also features a tough, detachable braided cable. The headset features Dual Chamber Drivers designed to separate the bass from the mids and highs for clearer audio and the detachable noise-cancellation microphone is certified by Discord and TeamSpeak. In addition to its in-line audio controls, the headset also offers multi-platform compatibility with PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and other platforms with a 3.5 mm port.

HyperX Alloy Elite 2 Gaming Keyboard: The HyperX Alloy Elite 2 is the keyboard for gamers, streamers, and multi-taskers who require controls at their fingertips. This limited-edition variant has a TimTheTatMan-inspired design with splashes of yellow on select keys while keeping the original keyboard features, including the dedicated media keys and a large volume wheel. The full-featured Alloy Elite 2 is a gaming keyboard ready for everything from video editing to watching movies to orchestrating multimedia empires. It's built with high quality, ultra-reliable HyperX mechanical switches that feature bright, exposed lighting. RGB lighting can be customized and personalized using HyperX NGENUITY software.

HyperX Pulsefire Haste Gaming Mouse: The HyperX Pulsefire Haste is built for gamers looking to gain every fraction of a second advantage possible. Weighing in at 59 grams, this feature-packed, responsive honeycomb shell mouse utilizes TTC Golden micro switches to provide satisfying, reliable clicks and are rated for 60 million clicks. The flexible HyperFlex USB cable and the virgin-grade PTFE skates work together to provide a smooth, easy glide. Featuring a custom black with yellow accents design, the TimTheTatMan edition maintains everything that makes the Pulsefire Haste special.

HyperX Pulsefire Mat Gaming Mouse Pad: The HyperX Pulsefire Mat gaming mouse pad is built for durability and precision tracking with a highly optimized surface and anti-fray stitching. Similar to the rest of the collection, the mouse pad has the stamp of TimTheTatman with the "triple T" logo front and center and yellow accents to complete the limited-edition lineup.

Anyone looking for peripherals, there's much better. This is a budget brand trying to get you to buy a product based off your fondness of someone. Not its own quality or reputation.
There's better audio brands. There's better keyboard brands. Everything here is about the profit margin being as large a possible.

If you like a streamer, cool, go directly support them. But don't buy cheap crap gear to do it.

HP peripherals that look very similar to products from the competition with a hyperx badge and some esport celebrity branding.

What a goofy name..... never heard of him, but then again, I don't associate much with the kiddie gammer crowd either, which seems to be the target audience for which these products were made....:D

If they are even remotely similar to other flashy, trashy, low-quality products made for this purpose, then I'll just stick with my real peripherals, like Ducky, Beats, Logitech ect...

Tim was actually one of the top streamers on twitch before he went to youtube. As youd image, his name is tim and hes covered in tattoos. Id imagine his popularity there is about the same as it was on Twitch. He's a variety streamer but i believe mostly focuses on CoD.

The only reason products like this exist is to get them more money. Kingston makes more money by putting Tims branding on their products and then Tim gets a cut. It's a win/win.

To be fair, both the Alloy Origins Core (TKL) and Alloy Origins 60/65 keyboards from HyperX are amazing keyboards for the price. Both top and bottom of the case are aluminum (and built like tanks) and both the HyperX red and aqua switches feel fantastic. I have both keyboards and I think they are both sorely slept on, especially for what you get for the price.

Only con I would have, and this is more on HyperX than the keyboards, is you can only get the NGenuity (the HyperX software) program through the Microsoft Store.

So yeah, I wouldn't really be calling HyperX out just because they partnered up with some streamer, especially since other brands (ROCCAT, Logitech) are just as guilty of doing it.
DeathtoGnomesTim who?

I came here to write the same thing. I have these 2 models with red switches and they are simply amazing, I intend to try the aqua switches too, but there was no good offer on TKL with aqua switches.
The Hyperx implementation of the red switches feel much better than Cherry MX RED switches, they are smooth and a pleasure to type on, all the keyboards I've tried with Cherry switches (red, blue, brown, green) feel scratchy.
