Cooler Master gaming keyboards offer switch type variety

Along with cases and cooling apparatus, Cooler Master also has some new gaming peripherals on display at CES. Meet the MasterKeys keyboards and Devastator II combo sets.

The MasterKeys Pro L and S keyboards are sleek-looking designs with Cherry MX clickers. Cooler Master says the RGB LED lighting in these is a patented design that should offer stronger colors than regular LED-lit keys. The Pro L is a full 104-key design, while the Pro S ditches the numpad for easier access to the mouse.

We took a look at these boards last night at Cooler Master's CES booth, and we can confirm that Cooler Master's approach to Cherry MX RGB switches looks great. Gamers can customize the lighting with multiple effects, too. As befits a keyboard of this caliber, the included software lets users record macros and set up multiple profiles.

If you prefer to keep things simple, the Devastator II keyboard and mouse set should be right up your alley. The keyboard has what Cooler Master calls "Mem-chanical" switches, which purportedly offer a "feel like mechanical switches with satisfying tactile feedback. The included mouse has an ambidextrous design with side buttons, and its sensor's sensitivity can go as high as 2,000 DPI. Both peripherals have single-color LED lighting, too. Cooler Master offers these sets dressed in red, blue, or green lights, and they'll cost about $30.

Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
