Since the data requires decoding, volume control can only be adjusted through decoding unit or amplifier rather than the sending device (motherboard).

RAID, not all is supported..and this seems to be a shaky path at best..

Due to the limitation of PC structure, the capacity of shadow memory is fixed. If the shadow memory is not enough, some of the RAID controllers will be inactive.

Other Thoughts: Will make a great HTPC Steam Box, support for Linux, gear towards gamers.
You will need to upgrade your Processor and upgrade your Ram to DDR4 to take advantage of the speed benefits.
These are the fun type of upgrades to make.
The 1st gen, early adopters rule should still apply. If you have to have the latest and greatest this is it for now.

G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 MX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown Switches
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: USB pass-through
Audio and mic Pass-through
Tactile feedback with cherry brown switches a must have for serious gaming
Key case with removal tool to swap touch
Soft rubberized extension for wrist support
Heavy, sturdy construction
Brushed aluminum , metal volume control roller, mouse cord clip,
Adjustable Lighting controls with software, breathing, reactive, snake or random,
3 levels of Color brightness control
LED lit Volume indicator

Typing on this is smooth as butter
Gold Plated Connectors
Devices can be plugged directly into the keyboard, great if you have a short cables or if your PC tower is on the floor or in a less than desirable location
All Keys have a slight rubberized grip
Polling rate adjustability (with software )This is great if you have better than average reflexes
Anti-Ghosting with N Rollover switch
On the Fly Macro Recording( G keys)
Media player controls with dedicated volume roller
The extra Gaming caps are angled and ribbed for your pleasure so W-A-S-D can easily be detected by touch.

Cons: Braided cord albeit stiff,
Case for extra caps are too heavy to attach upright as pictured, it will fall over eventually

Other Thoughts: Keyboards are such a personal preference, having said that, you will not find better gaming one at this price range
Hands down the winner at this price point vs Corsair’s offer
A center piece , a work of art
Corsair still has a better light display with the ripple effect but that is a personal preference
Very specific and popular Color Scheme
Cool Design, Tubular pipe that surrounds the keyboard that allow for clipping of key case, wrist extensions ties it all together nicely
Drivers can be updated,
Firmware can be updated via the software interface
Reset to factory defaults as well
Games tested
League of Legends
Battlefield 4

Programs tested
Microsoft Word
Excels at all task
