Although I don't like the feel I do like the software features Corsair offers with iCue. So I want to improve the current keyboard.
I bought the Corsair in US so no local warranty.

Planning on lubing up switches for starters. Then replace the key caps to PBT.
After that I want to try using o-rings to see if it makes a difference.
Next would be the stabilizers, mainly the spacebar. I hate it now. I want to replace the spacebar keycap and the stabilizer lets see how much of an improvement it brings.

Maybe I will even desolder a few switches and replace them with Gateron to see if that makes a difference

Using hyperX alloy fps and alloy elite rgb (bought recently at 149) via lazada. Cherry MX browns.

Both are nice. Fps keys are pretty loose and come off easily.

my ducky keyboard refuse to give way, 10th yr now & counting. I'm actually annoyed because I cant justify buying a new keyboard. No reason to buy one.

You might want to wait till 10 Oct for the 10.10 promotions. Might have some savings in Lazada, Qoo10, etc.

Please avoid that keyboard... I am facing issues with it, see my earlier posts. Many users also facing it and no solution. Double/triple entries or non responsive keys.

I am looking for a replacement for it now
