Gigabyte Force K83
« on: 01:55 PM - 12/21/16 »
I'm new in the gaming with the XIM4 so bought first some cheap oem logitech mouse and keyboard setup around 20dollars to test the XIM4 if I did liked it before I did wanted to invest in some gaming mouse and keyboard. And I really like the XIM4!

So I bought a Gigabyte Force K83 info and specs: http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5437#kf  but it doesn't work on the XIM4 it's just a plain and simple gaming keyboard no software etc needed no fancy RGB lightning etc. When pluging the keyboard off the XIM4 the manager is not diplaying the keyboard icon when plugin it in the manager gives the icon of the keyboard is plugged in.

Using:
manager version 4.00.20160405
firmware version 4.00.20160405

Any tips?

As mouse I did bought a BenQ Zowie FK1 http://zowie.benq.com/en/product/mouse/fk/fk1.html works like a champ on the XIM4!

Thanks for the welcome!

I did install the latest beta firmware and a restore of my games config and the keyboard works great now!
Big thanks!

So this hardware is complete working on the Xim4:

Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1
Keyboard: Gigabyte Force K83



Happy holidays!
