Inside the Ripjaws KM570 MX
We removed a few of the keycaps to see what G.Skill is doing in this respect. We find the very familiar single shot white keycaps. They are painted black, the legends are laser etched, and the stems inside are typical to Cherry MX keyboards.
Under the keycaps, we find a full set of Cherry MX blue switches. Each switch has an LED in the top of the case, and the larger keys have the torsion bars hidden under the steel plate, which in this case is painted white.
The top section of the frame is thick, and without needing too much else than separating key groups and having a way for the LOCK LEDs to show, it is fine for its purpose. The lower section of the frame has thick ribs, running right to left, which support the PCB and steel plate, and does so without any noticeable vibration.
The PCB is green and all of the solder points are neatly done. However, we have seen issues from flux residue in the past, and it does not appear the G.Skill took much time for the cleanup process.
The blob of red paint makes it tough to read this IC, but we can tell this MCU is made by NXP. We believe it to be the LPC11U35F IC which is where the onboard memory is stored, and we also know that chip is an ARM Cortex-M0 32-bit processor.
With various modes and effects to play with, we chose to illuminate all of the keys for this image. The locks and the keys will all glow from the inside with red LEDs, and the fact that the steel plate is white, it makes all extra light reflect off of it, pushing light through all the gaps between keys too.
