- Cherry MX Silent Red
- Mechanical keyboards utilize a different type of key switch technology for a more durable and unique typing experience. The Cherry MX Red switch has an actuation force of 45 g and features a linear travel with no tactile bump. This can be beneficial for users who don't need the tactility of other switches. Additionally, with close actuation and release points, Cherry MX Red switches allow for easier double-tapping. Unlike Cherry MX Blue switches, these do not have an audible "click" mechanism, allowing for a quieter operation. Noise generated from this keyboard will be from the key either springing back into place or "bottoming out" – making contact with the back plate after a particularly hard press.
- Customizable Illuminated Badge
- Personalize the Strix Flare with its customizable acrylic badge or keep the pre-installed ROG badge. Note: Use white or light-colored paint or stickers for better results. For a premium finish, try professional printing.
- Dedicated Media Keys
- The dedicated media keys include a volume scrolling wheel as well as play/pause, stop, back, and forward buttons. Located alongside are the Windows Lock and Brightness adjustment buttons.
- Detachable Wrist Rest
- Add extra support with the detachable wrist rest. It hooks into place with subtle grooves and can be removed when no longer needed.
- USB Pass-Through
- A USB Type-A pass-through port lets your quickly and easily connect USB peripherals such as a mouse, headset, and so on.
- ASUS Aura Sync & ROG Armoury II
- With ASUS Aura Sync, you can light up your keyboard with your choice of colors and lighting effects to fit your style. Be sure to download the optional Aura Sync SDK software to customize your settings. For user profiles, macros, and performance options, you'll need to download the ROG Armoury II software.
