Anyone else having troubles with screen reporting temps? I have the keyboard, 1080 vid card and the 280 CPU cooler. I had got it to report temps on the little screen for a day and now nothing.

Very expensive for a keyboard, but I ordered one and am looking forward to seeing how it stacks up against a Corsair K70. The K70 has been a great keyboard, but over the past 18 months or so, I've come to dislike the loud typing noise of Cherry MX Reds and the palm rest is basically useless.  Having some extra macro keys and a display for hardware stats will be cool too.

The Z10 RGB uses KAILH switches. You will still have the loud typing noise. If you want a "quieter" mechanical keyboard, check out keyboards using Cherry Silent keys. If you don't own a Nvidia 10 series or higher GPU, you won't be able to display any GPU temps on the keyboard display.

You can also get rubber O-rings for the Cherry MX or Kailh switches (the O-ring would be the same for both). With the brown switch and an O-ring put on the key cap you should have silent gaming since you would never hear the sound of the keyboard key bottoming out. While it's not silent you shouldn't be able to hear the switch at the activation point unless you are using the blue switches unless you have superman level of hearing.

Dang, I did not realize the Kalih browns were loud, that's too bad. Thanks for letting me know! I do have O rings that dampen the sound of a key bottoming out, but the sound of actually typing is still pretty audible. I'll look around for something else, thanks again.

I didn't like O-rings on my CherryMX red RGB switches. they didn't do much to reduce the noise. I didn't like how the keys felt with the O-rings installed.
 
Kaihekoa, I recommend checking out mechanical keyboards on display at walmart or local bestbuy. Walmart near me has a few keyboards from Corsair Logitech and Razer on display. I don't if they have any keyboards using CherryMX Silent keys or not. 
 
Listening to people type online using CherryMX Silent,  like 30% quieter compared to CherryMX Red.
