Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro L Mechanical Keyboard Review

Lighting & Software


The Masterkeys pro comes with a number of different lighting options straight out of the box, which are selectable¬†using FN+F4 (mode key); such as snake, cross, ripple and rainbow. If you want to get creative, you can either customise them straight on the board using the LED recording feature or via the software which can be downloaded from CM’s site (check the model link at the start of this review). Below is the cross LED mode:

Once downloaded the software will check if there are any newer firmware versions and give you the option to update if you wish. The program is very simple to use: there are only two screens and four profile buttons, enabling you to switch between them. There are several different options for each LED mode, which you can customise. The “customize” option lets you select different colours for each key.
