K70 RGB MK.2 Low Profile
Corsair has one of the finest selections of gaming keyboards on the market today. They have something for every gamer, offering high-performance switches, superb build quality, comprehensive software, RGB, and more. It’s no wonder then that they’re one of the biggest names in the business. One of their most popular models os the K70, and now we have a new, new, new model of that original keyboard.
The latest one offers RGB, awesome, we love Corsair RGB tech. It’s also the MK.2 revision, so better onboard features and a revised layout; so far so good. Finally, it’s also the low-profile version, which means it sits low and mean, with shorter key actuation, and that should make it pretty versatile too. Basically, all the usual high-end stuff we expect from Corsair wrapped up in a new slimmer profile. Sound good to me, so let’s jump in for a closer look!
- All-day Comfort Low Profile RAPIDFIRE Keys: Experience all-day comfort with low-profile, low-travel keys, without sacrificing Cherry MX mechanical gaming performance.
- Modern, Slim Design: An all-new stunning slim-line design effortlessly fits into modern desktop setups.
- Durable Aluminium Frame: Aircraft-grade anodized aluminium frame ensures a lifetime of gaming.
- Dedicated Multimedia Controls: Adjust audio on-the-fly, without interrupting your game.

What Corsair Had to Say
“The CORSAIR K70 MK.2 RAPIDFIRE combines the comfort of low-profile and travel keys with the ultrafast perfomance of low profile CHERRY MX Speed keyswitches reinforced by a lightweight aluminium frame built to withstand a lifetime of gaming. Powerful CORSAIR iCUE software enables stylish macro programming, dynamic multicolour illumination and full-system lighting synchronization. The K70 MK 2 Low Profile RAPIDFIRE boasts a multitude of tools to boost your PC setup appearance and performance with customisable RGB lighting, a detachable wrist rest for your comfort and a USB pass-through port amongst other cutting-edge features to keep you in the game at all times.” – Corsair
What’s in the Box
As with most Corsair keyboards, you get two sets of gaming keycaps. The first set is WASD, while the other is QWERDF. They feature a different shape to the standard ones to promote better control for each set respectively.
Also included in the box, is a full-size hard plastic wrist rest. However, it still uses to bloody awful plastic clips that I absolutely hate, and the cable is still hard-wired too, come on Corsair, magnetic wrist rest, detachable cables, make it happen.
