Legendary mechanical gaming keyboard performance with virtually unlimited customization

The Corsair Gaming K70 RGB mechanical gaming keyboard begins with the performance of the legendary K70, and adds multicolor per-key backlighting for virtually unlimited customization. Every key is backed with a Cherry MX RGB key switch for precise actuation and superior feel. 104 full key rollover and 100% anti-ghosting ensure accurate gameplay.

Multi color, per key backlighting for virtually unlimited customization

Every one of the keys can be assigned a unique backlighting color. This gives you opportunities for key binding that you’ve never seen before in a mechanical keyboard.

100% Cherry MX Brown Key Switches

If you’re playing MMOs and MOBAs, it’s often less about getting your shots in, and more about moving out of fire. Cherry MX Brown switches give you a light 55g of tactile feedback, so you know exactly when the keypress is registering. Like the hardcore Cherry MX Red version, there’s no audible click.

Aircraft-grade black anodized brushed aluminum finish

You get impressive looks, light weight, and the rugged durability you need for a keyboard that’s going to see a lot of action.

100% anti-ghosting with 104 key rollover on USB

Every keystroke translates into accurate gameplay—even when multiple keys are pressed. There’s no signal degradation, and it keeps up with you, no matter how fast you play.

Detachable soft-touch wrist rest

Give your wrists a break, or remove it if it gets in the way.

Assign macros to any key

Just one more reason why the K70 RGB is one of the most advanced gaming keyboards the world has ever seen – you can set up any key to trigger a macro. The all-new Corsair Utility Engine (iCUE) makes it easy. FPS, MOBA, or even Minecraft… the K70 RGB has it covered.

Fast and fluid RGB animation

The K70 RGB uses a Panasonic display controller for an amazing multicolor light show in a pulsing, waving and cascading array.

Onboard memory to take performance and lighting settings with you

Do you take your gaming to go? Built-in storage lets you set it up once, and take it anywhere.

Easy-access dedicated multimedia controls

You don’t just play games – you play music and video, too. Play, stop, pause, skip tracks and adjust volume directly from the K70 RGB.

Intelligent Control. Unlimited Possibilities.

CORSAIR iCUE software enables vivid dynamic lighting control, sophisticated macro programming and full-system lighting synchronization across compatible CORSAIR peripherals, coolers, fans and more.

Is it possible to use the new Corsair Utility Engine software with older Corsair Keyboards like the K90/K95 and regular M60/M65/M95?

Unfortunately, due to the firmware and hardware differences with the new RGB peripherals, the new Corsair Utility Engine is not compatible with the older products that use the Vengeance Gaming software.

What is Type Lighting (aka Reactive Typing) and how do I set that up?

Type Lighting is also known as Reactive Typing on the Vengeance K70 non-RGB. This is a type of lighting that will actuate based on an individual key press. Unlike the original Vengeance K70, our software now has two different types of Type Lighting:
  • Single Lighting – Configure a single key to display a gradient of color(s) upon key press.
  • Multiple Lighting – Configure a single key to create a ripple of color(s) across multiple keys upon key press.

Type Lighting will work with both Foreground and Background Lighting simultaneously upon key press.

What is the difference between a Profile and a Mode?

A profile represents the overall preferences you have created for your keyboard for both macros and lighting. A profile is also what is saved to the keyboard that contains a list of your modes, actions, and lighting you assigned to your key(s). One of the most important features of your profile is the ability to assign it to a specific program (by the .exe file). This means that if you create different profiles that contain separate actions and lighting setups for different programs, your profile will change automatically based on the application detected on the foreground.

A mode is different lighting and action setups within the same profile. This allows you  to keep a single profile for a certain application, but allow you to create different setups depending on the mode you configured without having to change the profile. For example, if your profile was designed for the game Battlefield 4, you can have different modes configured for different classes in the game (Soldier, Medic, Sniper, etc.) under the same BF4 profile. Our software will allow you to change to different modes with a button assignment without having the need to change the profile (which ideally should be linked to an application).

To assign a button on the K70 to switch profiles or modes, simply go to PROFILES -> ASSIGNMENTS and right click any of the keys to configure Profile or Mode Select.

Where can I download the Corsair Utility Engine Software and Firmware for the keyboard?

You will find download links for the software in multiple locations on our webpage but the most reliable location is: corsair.com/downloads and selecting “Gaming Keyboards” from the droplist.)

There is no separate file for the firmware update as you will update any applicable firmware for your keyboard through the Software under Settings -> Update.

I notice some of my colors on the keyboard are lighter/darker than they appear in comparison to other keys. Why is that happening?

The keyboard with its multiple layers of lighting is capable of applying one lighting layer over another. If you see some keys that are darker or lighter than others, ensure that you did not configure two colors over the same keys through different groups.

How many keys are programmable with your Corsair Utility Engine software?

Every key on the keyboard except the volume scroll wheel is assignable with an action of your choosing. Each and every individual key can also be customized to be any color you like (up to 16.8 million options) in addition to an action being assigned.

What is the difference between Foreground Lighting and Background Lighting?

Background Lighting refers to the keyboard’s LED colors at a static state (when nothing is happening to the keyboard or if the keyboard is idle). This lighting is what you are accustomed to when purchasing a normal LED backlit keyboard as the LED simply stays on with no animation or pattern being played.

Foreground Lighting refers to the animation you have configured that plays on top of the Background Lighting. This is the lighting pattern you configured as SOLID, GRADIENT, RIPPLE, or WAVE that will either play automatically upon key press, an action, or from mode being selected.

The Vengeance K70 RGB is designed to offer multiple layers of lighting so users like yourself can configure complex lighting sequences that work together with Background, Foreground, and Type Lighting configurations. You can have all four (4) animations of SOLID, GRADIENT, RIPPLE, and WAVE exist on top of one another to create complex and unique patterns. The only limit is your imagination.

What is 104-Key Rollover?

Rollover refers to the number of simultaneous key presses that will register to the system. If a keyboard has 6-Key Rollover, that means the maximum of keys that can be pressed together and display properly is six (6).

Our Corsair Vengeance K70 RGB can detect up to 104-keys which means that if you simultaneously pressed every standard key on our keyboard. All 104 keys will be registered correctly. This is important in games where improper detection of keystrokes can make the difference between victory and defeat.

Where can I download the complete manual as a PDF for the Corsair Utility Engine Software?

You can download the full manual as a PDF here.

I created a new profile but my changes are not applied to the keyboard. How do I apply it?

After you select your new profile, click on the box next to the pulldown menu and select “Set as Default Profile.” 

Why does my scroll lock button flash when I enable BIOS mode?

The scroll lock, caps lock, and num lock will all flash to signal you have set the keyboard to BIOS mode. The notification is to remind you that you're in BIOS mode (104 Key Mode, Media Keys, Windows Key, and Software Functions are disabled).

There are two USB plugs for my keyboard. Which one should I connect?

For USB 3.0:
Use one connector (the one with the keyboard icon) when connecting via USB 3.0

Connecting via USB 2.0
Use both connectors when using USB 2.0. Plug in the connector with the two arrows icon first, and the connector with the keyboard icon second.

How do I update the firmware?

First, you must install the CUE software. Then bring it up and go to SETTINGS and click on the DEVICE tab.

Click Update Firmware and then click the link in the pop-up window:

Save the .zip somewhere on your PC for easy access and then click open.

Proceed to click Update and let the software proceed with the firmware update. You will notice the keyboard power down and power up as it reboots internally. If the keyboard is not detected after the firmware update, we recommend restarting the PC and bringing the software back up.

What do numbers means on the BIOS Switch?

The BIOS switch both adjusts the polling rate and allows you to turn off advanced keyboard features for compatibility with certain legacy motherboards. Settings of 1, 2, 4, and 8 are millisecond polling rates (1ms = 1000hz). Switching to BIOS reduces the polling rate and turns off other features for maximum compatibility. By default we ship at 1ms (1000Hz) and most gamers will prefer to just use the setting.

Is it possible to use the keyboard without any software installation?

Yes. This means you will not be able to customize any lighting effects or assign any type of action to the keys. The firmware will also need to be updated on the keyboard as well.
