You don’t use just any sword; you use “your” sword just like you’d use only your specific gaming mouse in fragging and bagging some fool in your game of choice.

Corsair: They make memory, right? Wrong! They make everything. Well, everything is regards to the computer part/peripheral realm.

Will the K60 hold up to the establish Corsair quality? Let’s take a look.
