Default Installing bumpers in a K95?

I've had a Corsair Vengeance K95 for about 2 weeks now, and while I love the mechanical switches I'd like to soften the noise a bit. I understand you can put little o-rings or bumpers under the switches to do this.

Any guides or tutorials you can point me to? My Google-fu is failing me.

Well that's simple as hell. I thought they went under the switches, not under the keycaps.

I'll pick some up to try them out.

Let us know how well it works out. Maybe I'll do the same on my K70.

120pcs Keycap Rubber O Ring Switch Dampeners White FOR Cherry MX Free Shipping | eBay

I'd have bought them from WASD Keyboards, but I'm not paying $25 US for 50 cents worth of O-rings.

That's quite the eclectic group of items the seller has listed....

Everything from keycap orings to fake pigeon eggs to animal traps......

Wow that is cheap. Let us know how they work out.

I have WASD ones installed on both of my keyboards + my gamepad and love them. I am pretty sure I even have an extra set laying around somewhere that I can install on this newly aquired Quickfire XT.
