Cooler Master SK630 Low Profile Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
The market for mechanical gaming keyboards is exploding. Everyone, even companies you would never expect (I’m looking at you Creative Labs!), seems to have their own line of PC gaming accessories. But what really sets them apart? The answer is, sadly, not much; the existence of media keys or a volume roller, how good the software is, the occasional quirky layout.
Then there are the unique keyboards. We’ve looked at a few of them here. Today we’re adding another one to the list with the Cooler Master SK630 Low Profile Gaming Keyboard.

The SK630 features a flat, slimmed down design that could make any Apple fan feel right at home. Add to that full RGB backlighting, brand new Cherry MX RGB Low Profile Red switches, and massive amounts of software-free programmability and you can begin to see why this might catch more than a few eyes. With a list price of $119.99 this is not exactly a budget option, so let’s dive in and see if it’s worth the cost of entry.

Cooler Master SK630 Low Profile Mechanical Keyboard Review
It's a new keyboard from Cooler Master, using Cherry MX Low Profile switches. Worth £130?

When Cherry debuted its MX Low Profile mechanical switch back at CES 2018, we were promised several new keyboards using those new Low Profile switches. We’ve already seen the Corsair K70 MK2 RGB Low Profile, but today our attention turns to Cooler Master’s SK630. The SK630 I have here is a tenkeyless (TKL) board, and it uses the Low Profile RGB Red switches. Priced at £129.99, could this be the perfect board for those who want to stay away from full-size mechanical switches?

Every year we see a lot of great keyboards the Hardware Asylum Labs. That’s why we seek out new and innovative design choices that can make a keyboard really stand out. The Cooler Master Sk630 Tenkeyless Mechanical Keyboard is just such a board. It combines everything we like about a good mechanical keyboard with a compact tenkeyless design and the latest in Cherry MX switch technology.

When I saw the new Cooler Master line at CES, I just knew I needed more time on the SK630 design and really wanted to see if my first impression would be a lasting one.

Inno3D GeForce RTX 2080 Ti iChiLL Black Review
The fastest card we have tested? Readers often lament the price of graphics cards. One can argue the current positioning is to blame. Let's take Nvidia's latest RTX series as an example. The cheapest costs north of £300. Crank it up to the RTX 2080 leaves users finding at least £650. Yet that's nowhere near the maximum. You need to spend over a grand for the privilege of owning an RTX 2080 Ti, rising to a massive £1,500 for liquid-cooled models offering the best gaming experience around.

There are two schools of thought when designing the ultimate card. MSI, for example, goes big in every direction with its air-cooled Lightning Z behemoth. Others favour a smaller card that uses established liquid cooling. Inno3D is of the latter thinking.

Patriot Viper V765 RGB Mechanical Keyboard Review
It seems I end up starting every peripheral review the same way. By saying that peripherals are the most subjective thing that we review and how what I may like, you may not. That’s statement is especially true when it comes to keyboards. Everyone has their preference when it comes to typing and or gaming.
