Cooler Master may be a big name in chassis and CPU cooling but they have also carved a nice space for themselves in the peripheral area especially their QuickFire keyboards which remain one of the most popular mainstream mechanical keyboards available. The latest addition to the Quick Fire series is the Quick Fire XTi, which is their offering for the current multi-color LED backlight key trend. Unlike most multi-color keyboards however, the Quick Fire XTi will be using Cherry MX switches and it will be available with an MSRP of $149 from most online retailers such as NewEgg or Amazon.com.
Cooler Master, a leading manufacturer of desktop components and peripherals, today announced the availability of Quick Fire XTi, a minimalistic mechanical gaming keyboard with multi-color backlighting for gamers built with 100% authentic Cherry MX switches.
A performance keyboard designed for gamers with a refined sense of style and sophistication. The XTi comes without any distracting logos and frivolous “button clutter” freeing up precious space on the keyboard. The Quick Fire XTi is a performance keyboard: A plug and play design makes sure that profiles, macros, and color backlighting modes, are all quickly and easily customizable without the need for complex software.
Gamers who enjoy minimalism will appreciate the sleek lines, refined symmetry and solid built quality of the Quick Fire XTi. Soft to the touch and long lasting, Quick Fire XTi has UV coated keys which delivers a luxurious experience while protecting the keys for durable, long-lasting game play. Now you can say goodbye to missing letters and unsightly, discolored keys. Choose between 100% authentic red, brown, or blue Cherry MX switches to match your tactile preference.
The Quick Fire XTi features dual color backlighting (red and blue) that can be mixed to give you up to 35 colors per key. Multiple lighting modes are included like wave, breathing, and unique responsive effects. Four profile keys allow you to record and switch between lighting modes instantly.
