Mechanical Keyboard

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I never used a mechanical keyboard. Currently, I am using Logitech K120 normal membrane keyboard. I am confused, should I really consider to buy a mechanical keyboard? Mostly I do gaming and little bit typing. I saw many videos on mechanical keyboards and those seduce me a little bit. But, is it really worth to consider a mechanical keyboard over a membrane keyboard.

 

If yes, then consider my budget choice- Redragon K552.

go to a retail store, and type on mechanical keyboards with your own hands. If you don't like them, then it's not for you.


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

Mechanical Keyboard is more satisfiying to use, but if you prefer silent keyboard, don't use it.

Even the most silent mec keyboards are louder than membrane.

 

If you're a sloppy user, don't use mec keyboards as most of them are not spill proof.

Most membrane keyboards can be quickly salvaged from spillage.

A membrane doesnt make a keyboard silent

there is almost no reason other than cost to opt for a switch on membrane over a switch over pcb. Zilents are a mechanical switch which are mounted on pcbs. and they're more silent than acer switches or model m buckling spring switches which use a capacitive membrane.
