There’s no shortage of truly awesome mechanical gaming keyboards these days, and every big name brand has at least one they can be proud of. Thermaltake is no exception to this, and have certainly had a fair few successes themselves over the years. Now they’re back again with their latest feature-packed keyboard, the ARGENT K5 RGB, a £200+ behemoth of premium hardware that’s should make a stunning addition to your desktop. Of course, it’s part of their wider ARGENT peripheral line up, such as the gorgeous ARGENT M5 Wireless RGB Mouse I reviewed earlier this month.
