ASUS Aura – Let There Be Light

Fire up Aura and enjoy a mesmerizing light show on ROG Claymore Core's individually-customizable backlit keys, and get creative with its palette of over 16 million colors. You'll also be able to sync your customized light effect with the ever-growing range of Aura-enabled gear. Enjoy 9 different preset Aura effects.


Every Keystroke Counts

ROG Claymore Core features Cherry MX RGB switches, 100% anti-ghosting with N-Key rollover (NKRO) technology, fully programmable keys and on the fly macro key recording to ensure you always get the winning edge.

Cherry MX RGB Switches

German-made Cherry MX RGB switches (Red, Blue, Brown and Black) give you tactile, responsive keystrokes and unmatched 50-million-keystroke durability.

  • Red Switch: Extremely fast and linear response; 2.0mm actuation distance; 45g actuation force


Anti-ghosting with N-Key Rollover

ROG Claymore Core features 100% anti-ghosting with N-Key rollover (NKRO) technology to ensure each keystroke is detected no matter how many other keys are pressed – so all your multi-keystroke commands are logged.

Repeat Acceleration

Repeat acceleration is the rate at which a letter repeats itself when you hold a key down. You can adjust repeat rate to suit the situation at hand – keep it at the default rate for typing, or increase it for some rapid-fire action.

Unlimited Personalization and Customization

You can save up to six user profiles (5 customized + 1 default profile) on ROG Claymore Core's built-in flash memory on the go. The intuitive ROG Armoury lets you customize keys, lighting and macro settings. You can even track statistical data like how many keystrokes were made during a game.


All in Sync

ROG gives you exclusive Aura Sync options and additional features when you pair ROG Claymore Core with an ASUS ROG motherboard, graphics card and more. ROG Claymore Core's hotkeys allow you to control your ASUS motherboard fan speed and overclock the system.

Perfect Lighting in Sync

Aura Sync takes RGB lighting beyond the checkbox, combining and controlling the LEDs of all your Aura-enabled products from a single application to achieve perfect, synchronized harmony. Aura lets you sync light effects across your motherboard, ROG Claymore Core and the ever-growing portfolio of Aura-enabled products. You can choose from an array of LED effects and can even use ROG Claymore Core's backlighting to reflect CPU temperature.
