BastiGHG`s Gear


With the ROG Strix Flare RGB, Asus offers a high-end gaming keyboard that supports all elementary features like macro recording, dedicated media keys, a Win-Lock function as well as individually customizable profiles via software. The keyboard is also able to convince with its brilliant RGB lighting. The ability to synchronize with a variety of products from the manufacturer's extensive portfolio, the bottom illumination and the individual logo set the Strix Flare RGB apart from other models on the market. Thanks to the use of CHERRY's MX RGB switches the individual keys are uniformly illuminated. At the same time, the mechanical key switches guarantee high precision and reliability, which pays off during long gaming sessions. 

At the heart of the keyboard are the CHERRY MX RGB switches. By using the RGB version of these mechanical key switches, the keyboard has an almost infinite number of lighting options. The transparent housing with integrated lens, together with the high-quality RGB LED, ensures a bright display of all 16.7 million colours of the RGB spectrum for each switch.

The keyboard is available with  CHERRY MX RGB RED switches. BastiGHG opts for the RED version because its characteristics harmonise best with his way of playing games. These key switches are triggered after 2.0 millimetres, feature linear characteristics, and require an actuating force of 45 centinewtons.


The Gladius II Origin features an advanced 12,000 DPI optical sensor for fast response and precise control. The ergonomic design is optimized for right-handed users and ensures comfort even during extra-long gaming sessions, while the Aura-Sync illumination technology lets you outshine your opponents.
