Disclosure: The GMMK-TKL modular mechanical keyboard is given by the Glorious PC Gaming Race

About the Glorious PC Gaming Race Modular Keyboard…

Glorious PC Gaming Race is a very glorious brand name for the current times where memes are made to make fun of dirty peasants and people showing off their first PC builds as a ‘ascend’ ritual in Reddit. It gels with the PC gaming sub-culture very nicely and the timing couldn’t be any better. It is hard to find a good name for a peripheral company, though the choice of words would its end products have a BIG title. The first product I’ve noticed from the brand is the white coloured with anti-fray stitch deskpads when most were not having stitched deskpads.

Freedom to choose…

The Glorious PC Gaming Race has accessories, add-ons and keyboards, for now, ranging from switches, keycaps, o-rings headset holders, wrist rest and keyboards. Very interesting keyboards. The Glorious PC Gaming Race has the GMMK modular mechanical keyboards where gives you the flexibility to swap mechanical switches from various manufacturers. Under which there are two versions- Full Size and Tenkeyless, both have customized and pre-installed with switches and caps. All of them are RGB.

About its variants and modular features…

The basic design and features of all the GMMK variants remain the same. The customized variant is where you can select what kind of mechanical switches and keycaps you want while the pre-built is installed with Gateron brown switches with black coloured ABS double-shit keycaps.

Personally, this is great to have because it gives that made-to-order option and its a hybrid option somewhere between pre-built options with limited selections of switches and a complete DIY keyboards where you assemble and solder it yourself. Keyboard fans will like such options, more so with an option for worldwide shipping. It is a true modular mechanical keyboard.


The GMMK-TKL keyboard comes in a plain box with enough information about its design, features and specifications. You get some reading material and a glorious sticker. The internal packaging is done well.


Apart from the braided cable, you get a right angle connector, a standard ESC keycap and a switch puller. There is a keycap puller is placed in a very smart place which you’ll see as we progress with the review. Notice by default, the glorious ones have used a red “Ascend” keycap for the ESC switch, instead.

Cooler Master MH630 Headset Review

The Cooler Master MH630 is a headphone without a DAC. Consequently, it doesn't have any fancy RGB lighting and effects. If you love to have RGB bling on a headset, this isn't for you. But the MH630 has everything else you could ask for- a detachable cable, built-in volume control and a detachable microphone. Since the Cooler Master MH630 has a 3.5mm jack it works great on almost anything you can connect it to. Moreover, there is also a splitter to enable you to connect it to a source that has a separate mic input.

Cooler Master MM710 Gaming Mouse Review

Cooler Master has a good share of mechanical keyboards since its CM Storm days. But its venture towards gaming mouse has an erratic hit or a miss. I did like the CM Storm Alcor and the shell of the CM Storm Mizar but that was about it. Cooler Master really needed something that can have the best of both worlds. But CM Storm Alcor was light, a pro in itself wasn't really pushed ahead.
