QuickFire Ultimate joins CM Storm's popular line of mechanical keyboards as the most potent and complete gaming keyboard of the QuickFire lineup. Like those that came before it, QuickFire Ultimate comes equipped with fully mechanical CHERRY MX keyswitches. Evolving from its predecessor, the QuickFire Pro, Ultimate brings a fully backlit keyset to the table for complete visibility in low-light environments. N-Key Rollover in USB Mode ensures that every keypress is registered, providing faster response times and unlimited simultaneous keystrokes.


Whether for work, school, or gaming, these high quality switches were designed for enhanced comfort while providing a more satisfying typing experience. With a lifespan of up to 50 million keypresses, mechanical switches can outlast most traditional keyboards.

5 out of 5 eggsQuickfire ultimate with blue switch

Pros: - Cherry mx blue switches
- Solid construction
- Steel plate to reinforce i'm pretty certain you can use this as a weapon in a pinch.
- did i mention mx blues? clicky clicky!
- Backlighting is beyond awesome.
- Improved my typing significantly.

Didn't think i'd like mechanicals, as i love the flat chiclet keyboards but there are no good ones. Glad i switched.

Cons: To say something wrong about this keyboard is to dislike everything you can wish for in a keyboard.

Other Thoughts: But this! Switching to mechanical was seriously the best decision i have made so far.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it, 100%

Pros: Very sturdy, well built, should last me years
Good backlight, even highlights wasd keys for late night gaming.
responsive keys, best feel from typing I ever got.

Cons: Everyone within a fifteen foot radius is going to know you're typing, not so much a con for me, but could be for you.

The stands could also have put it at a higher angle, but this is nit picking.

Other Thoughts: Genuinely impressed with this. Only thing in my last purchase I 100% love.

5 out of 5 eggsI like it!

Pros: -Very bright blue backlight with blue backplate
-Nice design layout
-Very solid

Cons: -Price

Other Thoughts: I've never had a mechanical keyboard test prior to purchasing this keyboard. The feedback feels alot like my previous membrane keyboard with a clicky sound instead of a clacky sound. Many people who have never tried blue switches should at least hear how they sound before making the purchase since different people have different sound tolerance and sensitivity.

Many things such as the gold-plated USB, reroutable cable, function keys, firm rubber stoppers to hold the keyboard on place and NKRO over USB should come standard nowadays so they price is kind of debatable. When looking at the description of the keyboard you should know what you are buying such as the key switches and layout if it has any macro keys in which it doesn't (I'm aware of that but really do not prefer macro keys. I like this keyboard the way it is.)

The keyboard is very solid and is bright to my liking especially due to the blue backplate it has. The keyboard does not in fact look very generic it has some neat designs over above the number keys and around the keyboard.

At the moment I can't seem to work my NKRO over USB though I'm unsure why. For the price I believe that $110 doesn't really justify the price in my opinion, I believe it should be around $80-90 for it to be a killer bargain.

5 out of 5 eggsNiccccceee

Pros: no driver hassle, plug and go to my surprise. love the clicky sounds if your into that. Its a cooler master so it's thick and durable. I feel confident this thing will out live my dog.

Cons: i was expecting a little more illumination but it's really bright enough as it is.

Other Thoughts: after doing some research i have found these are more likely to last longer the razor products. no macros but i knew that buying it. it

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mech. keyboard!

Pros: This is my first mechanical keyboard and wow. the mx blues provide glorious clicky clicky sounds, and the typing is far better. I recently hooked the old membrane keyboard up to a server of mine and was absolutely displeased with how much resistance there was on pressing keys after using my mechanical keyboard.

the keyboard fees natural, my hands don't get as exhausted during the work day as well. its an excellent, simple keyboard with minimal features while being built like a rock.

Cons: no cons.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing keyboard(mx Blue)

Pros: Great Feel, Sturdy. Mx Switches have amazing feedback and great over all feel. Easy to use and no crazy software that needs to be installed. Simple and easy with an amazing look to the overall board.

Cons: Doesn't have a wrist rest but, that isn't horrible. Just a personal feel about things.

Other Thoughts: It is an amazing keyboard. For the value personally i would have gotten the tk in blue. But, the ultimate is a much more standard form factor with great feel and the added number pad makes for great use. I have had this keyboard for a while and is a great one. I've had a good amount of keyboards but this has to be my all time fav keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: - Adjustable Backlight with Brightness Adjustment
- All keys are Cherry MX mechanical switches
- Very sturdy keyboard with metal backplate
- Soft touch plastic on case and keys
- FN Lock Key (with very clearly labeled FN keys)
- Keys are well suited for larger hands (see other thoughts)
- Laser-etched key caps with clear and attractive font
- Simplistic and well executed design
- Numeric Keypad

Cons: - No onboard USB ports (I knew this when purchasing, so no egg penalty)
- No macro keys

Other Thoughts: The keys are near perfectly spaced for my hands. The striking surface area is a few millimeters wider than the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate keys.

If you enjoy playing MMO's or using macro keys you may want to look at another board.

However, the keyboard fulfilled my needs perfectly, given that I still go to college and enjoy playing FPS, MOBA, and platformers. The keyboard itself is very simplistic in design but is also the most well made keyboard I have ever owned.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Impressive, just like the TK but with a full key layout.
Feels just a bit better made, and had no defects.

Cons: I wish the backlight could be just slightly brighter.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: - Blue LED and the Blue Cherry switches are great and are very responsive.
- The keyboard is very solid and is a great use for typing, gaming, and other such activities.

Cons: I have non so far but will keep updated. So far its an amazing buy.

Other Thoughts: cooler master needs to make this keyboard with macros and this would be one of the best keyboards on the market. But of course, that is my opinion. Otherwise, i love this keyboard :)
