What aftermarket keycaps will work with Apex 5?

Additionally, the Apex 5 features a “standard” bottom row spacing for even greater compatibility. Be sure to check the specifications carefully before you purchase any replacement keycaps.

How does the SteelSeries Hybrid Blue Gaming switches differ from other keyboards?

O software SteelSeries Engine é reconhecido universalmente como sendo extremamente fácil de usar. Control lighting effects, customize the OLED display, and reprogram any key in seconds.
