While this was posted in the past week, the price wasn't this low so I thought I'd share.

Use coupon code TWITCHCON20 at checkout. Tax may apply. Shipping on this keyboard right now is 1-4 weeks out, which stinks, but this is a crazy low price for a quality keyboard with Cherry MX Reds. I'm looking forward to receiving this for myself.

I do like the looks of most Corsair boards more, but I prefer this one vs the K90 I had (bought second hand for cheap) because it only has one row of macro keys. I didn't need the 18 on the K90. Also, and this is the main reason I went with this, is I love it has a volume light bar so you know how loud your volume is while gaming. That is a huge plus for me.

Does that light bar need special software? And is the software heavy on resources?

Directly from G.Skill's page: http://gskill.com/en/product/ripj...ry-mx-red-

There is no indication you need to install software for the volume light bar to work. The software looks to be for the macro keys as well as controlling lighting configurations for the keys themselves.

very nice. If the keyboard didn't have the angular and edgy sides, I'd buy it. Same with the Logitech g410

Do you mean light bar as in the volume bar on right top of the keyboard?

I have windows 10 installed, and I did not need any software for the light bar on top right to work for me.
