Analysis of the Cooler Master CK720

For a company known for its PC cases, cooling systems and supporting components such as extension cables and power supplies, Cooler Master offers a multitude of keyboards and they have around 57 different ones available today. .

One of the most popular formats is 65% (like this CK720), but that’s not the only thing that stands out. Most companies that are not usually dedicated to peripherals (mice, keyboards, etc.) normally relaunch existing models created in OEM factories. However, Cooler Master decided to use fully lubricated white Kailh Box V2 switches, which means they are hot-swappable, so we think they are better than the standard Cherry MX switches that most of their competitors use. . It also means you can replace some or all of the specific switches with ones that have a different sound or feel to use.

It comes with one of those coiled, metal-covered interlocking-mechanism cables like the ones many custom keyboard enthusiasts are already familiar with from Keychron and the like. The box also contains eight green Cherry MX switches which have a different feel than the Kailh and a different sound. They will serve you very well to start with.

This type of material requires a little more attention than the most standard ones, since it has new lubricated stabilizers, a base with a more rigid structure and in the middle some layers of silicone pads that ensure an immobile platform for the switches , plus a removable aluminum top plate that lifts off for cleaning or customization. Despite the inclusion of all these elements, the keyboard has no screws.

As you would expect from high end keyboards, it comes with either black or white PBT keys, a great trick up its sleeve, but I’m even more impressed with the 8 different RBG modes and the silent wheel on top which also functions as an integrated control center for media playback. The stand is stable, strong, and comes in two different designs, but what I like the most is its natural five-degree tilt.

For those of you who prefer software, the answer is the MasterPlus+ Driver Pack. I like the look of it and the fact that it only takes up a little over 300MB, while others need more than 1GB of your precious, limited space. The only thing missing (because it even comes with a fancy key removal tool) is a wrist rest, because once you figure it out, there’s no turning back.

Although the switches and keys are interchangeable and intended for replacement, I must add that this keyboard is very good as is, because it is fast but very mechanical, with switches that return to their original position extremely quickly. I would say more, I would continue to use it without making any changes to it, because it is already quite good.

Paying around $100 isn’t cheap, but neither is it expensive for this level of quality, flexibility, and fast, accurate switches. I find it impressive that a more general hardware manufacturer can come up with a keyboard as good as this, because it’s something you don’t see often.
