Yeah I'd say diminishing returns, but it's pretty much the rule once you get past a certain point in anything anyway lol.

As for temps, I've actually never seen my CPU go past 95c even at full stress test temps and with Turbo engaged, for some unknown reason even without the cooler.

Maybe it's just the types of games I play, not sure though.

Prince J That cap switch offer sounds pretty nice TBH. But I'll probably reserve judgement until the brown switch demo unit is out and available for testing.

The brown is very silent, but personally i prefer blue switch when comes to overall typing experience.

Hi guys, have a closer look at the differences between Cap 1 and Cap 2 for ONYX/RAVEN..
Cap 1 is on the right side while Cap 2 is on the left side. This upgrade option is available for users who have purchased the mechanical keyboard series from ILLEGEAR. You may OPT for cap 2 key cap with your current blue switch keyboard for a refreshing look. smile.gif

Anyone from Illegear, just wondering if there is a key combo on the keyboard that can disable Win key? Mine suddenly stop working. Using keyboard tester the win key doesn't register anything.

[UPDATE]

Turns out WIN key was locked from within Onyx Gaming Center. Not sure why it is on as I never turn it on.

Has anybody seen/purchase the new Cap 2? Does it still wobble as much as Cap 1?

94% sRGB / 60% Adobe to Y530's 57/36. Thunderobot 911 (I think so?) seems to be reviewed in Chinese which I don't read: 95/73

Sorry too lazy to find out how to tabulate the data using the forum's built-in " | "

Hey guys, how long can you battery lasts? Mine I think around 30mins, when Windows show 60+ percent then suddenly poofs it turns off.

Recently collected my laptop from Illegear for RMA regarding the battery issue and changing the keyboard to the Cap 2/XMG caps + brown switches. Have done a fair bit of typing and would like to share some thoughts.

Firstly, the brown keyboard for me is much better than the blue original keyboard. Changed to the brown keyboard mainly to have a silent keyboard, as the blue switches are annoying anyone near me when I'm typing with their loud 'clicky' sounds. The brown switches sound similar to a membrane keyboard.

The new key caps don't wobble as much as the Cap 1 keycaps, therefore giving an improved typing experience. Keys feel more stable and the feel is better. Previously with the old keyboard I will have instances where the inputs will be registered even if not pressing the keys until the 'click' registers, or sometimes double registering inputs when typing, lending to typos. Currently no such issue.

You do lose that tactile feel with the blue switches, but I vastly prefer the new brown switches with the new caps. With the deep travel it kinda feels like a ThinkPad keyboard, which I consider to be one of the best keyboards available in a laptop. I make noticeably less typos now.

Regarding the battery, I still have the issue of the 99% charging even though Illegear said they managed to replicate the issue during RMA and replaced a new battery. Guess I'll have to return for another RMA in the future. Has anyone else encounter this issue?

I thought their service was pleasant and relatively helpful, in particular Azim. Didn't encounter any lost chargers or damage to my laptop during RMA.

Hi, what is latest version for command center now? Still 1.1.15.6?
Also, a suggestion, would it be possible for Illegear to split the drivers into folders and have a page dedicated for them? Right now the folder is 1.5GB and there are no info page available showing latest drivers etc.

Oh, I updated Windows to Oct update and now once in a while my Gaming Center ate the ram like snacks. 12GB of 16GB was consumed and fan was screaming.

I am looking on this laptop recently. Went to the showroom/office to have a look on the real one. Good build quality.

However, I noticed one flaw which is the track pad. I hold my finger on the trackpad without moving, the cursor on the desktop keep "dancing around". I asked the sales representative whom replied that it might be driver not fully installed.

I went through the net and also noticed that reviewer pointed out the same problem.
Also, they did mentioned about loud fan noise and also crazy hot button on the top part of the laptop after gaming some times.

I would like to know more real life user experience from here. Hope you guy could
share your experience.

Thank you so much, really appreciate.
