Cherry MX RGB Mechanical Switches

Constructed with Cherry MX RGB switches, ROG Strix Flare delivers the precise mechanical feel preferred by gamers and enthusiasts alike. The premium quality switches are manufactured in Germany, and are renowned for offering optimal actuation and responsiveness with every keystroke.

  • Red Switch - Linear response without audible click, and smooth keystrokes with a softer spring for fast and precise actuation; Actuation / tactile force: 45g; Key travel distance: 2mm to actuate, 4mm to bottom.

Customizable Illuminated Badge

Your keyboard, your insignia. Design and create your personalized badge with the provided blank acrylic badge, and insert it directly into the keyboard to see it flare up with Aura. Or keep the pre-installed ROG badge and boast your ROG pride. It's your keyboard, show your flair!

Note: Use white or light-colored paint or stickers for better results. For a premium finish, try professional printing.

Dedicated Media Keys for Gamers

Easily control your audio without switching out of your game or removing your right hand off the trigger. The dedicated media keys and smooth-scrolling volume wheel are positioned on the upper left of the keyboard, so you get instant access with your left hand.

Detachable Wrist Rest

Get extra support and comfort with the soft-touch wrist rest, or easily detach it from the keyboard if you don't need it. The wrist rest hooks into subtle grooves at the bottom front of the keyboard, so Strix Flare looks just as good with or without it.

USB Passthrough

A handy USB passthrough at the back of ROG Strix Flare lets you conveniently connect your gaming mouse, headset or other devices.

Aura Sync

Flare it up with vibrant per-key backlighting and underglow on both sides to extend the lighting beyond the keyboard. Aura Sync runs the entire color spectrum and a range of dynamic lighting effects are at your command for you to create a keyboard that is uniquely yours. Additionally, Strix Flare's lighting can be synced with the extensive Aura ecosystem to create a gaming environment that really shines.

Note: Lighting synchronization between ROG mice and keyboards can be enabled and controlled via ROG Armoury II software, while synchronization with other components is enabled and controlled via ASUS Aura software.

Aura SDK

ASUS Aura SDK allows developers to take full advantage of the vast ecosystem of Aura Sync-capable PC gear. From in-system illumination to peripherals and beyond, the SDK provides an evolving toolkit of options to enhance games and software with RGB lighting. Game effects, alerts, and audio can all be portrayed via Aura-compatible hardware, creating subtle or dazzling visual cues to augment the action.
