This flat top full Qwerty board isn’t likely to grab your attention if you’re a gamer. Fortunately, the 3.0 equipped with MX Brown switches, is intended for someone with a set of demands other than flashing RGB LEDs.

Cherry MX Board Silent Review

When it comes to companies that in general do nothing but make exceptional products, Cherry, known mostly for their mechanical key switches, resides permanently towards the top of that list. While they have made full keyboards since 1967 their prowess has been in the manufacture of the world’s best mechanical switches. Recent times have seen the company make a push to inject themselves back into the complete keyboard market, mostly targeting business professionals. While normally ThinkComputers is all about gaming and computer hardware we couldn’t help ourselves when we saw the board that we will be taking a look at today. That deck is the MX Board Silent (G80-3000). It’s an entirely modern mechanical keyboard internally and a completely oldschool IBM esque deck on the outside. And that’s not all, while the board is fully mechanical it also claims to be fully silent thanks to Cherry’s brand new MX Silent switches. Follow along as we find out if this board can bring you back that Commodore 64 feeling while still crushing along at 75 words per minute.

Alphacool Eislicht Brings Smooth Lighting to Your PC

If you've ever worked with led lighting in a computer case you may have noticed how the individual LEDs create their own points of light. Similar to what you see with Christmas lights you get small extra bright points instead of evenly distributed light and color. While you may want this sometimes, others you just want to evenly light the interior of your case. In an effort to correct this Alphacool has designed Eislicht, a light strip with similar properties to light panels.
