Every Keystroke Counts

Cherry MX RGB Switches
German-made Cherry MX RGB switches (Red, Blue, Brown and Black) give you tactile, responsive keystrokes and unmatched 50-million-keystroke durability.
ROG Claymore features 100% anti-ghosting with N-Key rollover (NKRO) technology to ensure each keystroke is detected no matter how many other keys are pressed — so all your multi-keystroke commands are logged.
Repeat acceleration is the rate at which a letter repeats itself when you hold a key down. You can adjust repeat rate to suit the situation at hand — keep it at the default rate for typing, or increase it for some rapid-fire action.
All In Sync
ROG gives you exclusive Aura Sync options and additional features when you pair ROG Claymore with an ASUS ROG motherboard, graphics card and more. ROG Claymore's hotkeys allow you to control your ASUS motherboard fan speed and overclock the system.
Perfect Lighting In Sync
Aura Sync takes RGB lighting beyond the checkbox, combining and controlling the LEDs of all your Aura-enabled products from a single application to achieve perfect, synchronized harmony. Aura lets you sync light effects across your motherboard, ROG Claymore and the ever-growing portfolio of Aura-enabled products. You can choose from an array of LED effects and can even use ROG Claymore's backlighting to reflect CPU temperature.
