Cooler Master Announces QuickFire Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Brad Chacos

Cooler Master may be known best for its cases and cooling supplies, but the company also offers a fairly spiffy line of gaming accessories. Yesterday, Cooler Master unveiled a new entry in its CM Storm QuickFire line of mechanical gaming keyboards: the QuickFire Pro. As any serious gaming 'board should be, this one is all about the keys.

The QuickFire Pro sports laser-etched, matte-finished keys on top of Cherry MX Red, Black, Brown, or Blue switches -- depending on the type of resistance and feedback you're looking for -- complete with red LED lighting for the most-used gaming keys. A set of backup caps come in the box along with a handy-dandy key puller. N-Key rollover is supported regardless of whether you're connected via USB or PS/2. An optional Game mode disables the Windows key to avoid any potentially devastating window minimizations in the midst of a hot and heavy frag fest.

No word on an exact release date, but the QuickFire Pro will launch sometime this month for $100. Check out more about the keyboard on the CM website .
