Alienware 17 RGB keyboard.

The Torrent
 Share

Hey guys.

 

i bought a Alienware 17 yesterday but I didn’t click the ‘per key rgb’ option as it was fifty quid more and I didn’t know what it would do.

 

Doesnthe keyboard key still have rgb? Maybe it has 4 zone rgb like the old Alienwares? Or do I get no rgb? Seems silly for a keyboard this expensive to not have rgb.

 

Many Thanks,

 

nobody say I shouldn’t have bought a Alienware no hate please I did what I did.

Not sure. I can’t see anywhere it does but it would be a proper money drain if it wasn’t.

Slight change to my question

 

I just noticed it is backlit. But what type is it? Is it rgb? Is it just solid white? Etc.

Honestly, my experience of it so far today has been very bad. I had to spend 2 hours downloading and redownloading the alienfx lighting, the cpu hit 99 degrees during cs go, extreme horrible scaling issues such as blurryness and countless many other problems. (not to mention tobii eye tracking really is useless and annoying)

 

Although all i can say is just get it.

 

 

Through all the problems is is undoubtedly worth it, i cant explain why; its just amazing.

Got mine last week...Think I got a lucky one the temps seem fine 85 degrees on cs go and Tomb Raider...the tobii eye tracking died doing an update and doesn't seem to want to be fixed and to be honest I don't care. I went for the 4k screen and don't seem to have any scaling issues. Love it

Nice.

 

tobii died? Mine was fine played whole of tomb raider with it on and it was amazing, I recommend getting that sorted before continuing tomb raider.

 

also about temps, dell coming to do a repaste for me within the next week :))) so hopefully that should fix the temps.

 

have fun :))
