    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.


    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.

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


    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.
