Corsair K70 MK.2 Keyboard: More Detailed Features

Removing the keycaps reveal the main selling point of this keyboard, the Low Profile Cherry MX Speed switches with their clear switch housing. A clear switch housing allows light to spread more evenly across the switch and surface. The LEDs are located inside the switches, which seem to mount on the PCB.

The Low Profile Cherry MX Speed switch stands at only 11.9 mm tall, which is 35% lower than the standard mechanical key switch. Travel distance has also decreased from 1.2 mm in the standard MX Speed switch to just 1.0 mm with these low-profile switches. These switches do have the same actuation force as a standard Cherry MX Red switch at just 45g. This means a user can perform an action quicker with low-profile speed switches compared to a standard switch because of the shorter actuation distance.

On the K70 RGB MK.2, the keyboard sits flat on the surface when the feet are folded in. In terms of height, it is only 29 mm tall; pretty low for a full-sized mechanical keyboard.

With the feet fully extended, this will add a bit more height to the keyboard.

In the next section, we will take a look at the Corsair iCUE software to see its capabilities.
