It is confirmed. Still awaiting schedule but we should see a limited QTY release in both TKL & XT form factor in approx. 1.5 month. 

Just saw this. It has been 1 month and 13 days, so........ this should be out soon right?
which page should I visit constantly to make sure I get my hands on one when it comes out? CM Store?

I remember him saying on irc that there was a bad batch of clears that affected both cm and wasd.

Is there a newsletter that we can subscribe for the new releases of QFR / QFS products?

 IMO you guys did a great job with the QFR, I think you have the biggest shares on the TKL market.

Im eagerly waiting for the clear switches version.

BTW, just a feedback to make it the perfect board, would you guys consider changing the mounting plate so that we can mod the switches without desoldering?

I think you can dominate the TKL market ☺

Recently got a QFS with Greens, and can't wait to have one with Clears if it happens.

Dang it, I'm subscribed to this thread, so each time I get a notification, I think there's been some news.

Agree it will be completely awesome, whenever it happens.

Hi, first post on this forum!

After testing the CM switch tester, I've just bought a g80-3000 (ISO) with clears, and I am waiting for it to arrive home.

I hope I did a good decision, I am under the impression this one won't be easy to sell if I don't like it.

I have an old (works with some annoyances) chicony with blues, so I will try both stock clear, and ergo clears.

Yea, I love the browns, but I'd love to get my hands on some MX clear or ergo clear KBs!

Should we just consider this to be a lost cause?

Not to necro an old thread or anything but... Cooler Master, any update on this? I think a lot of us would love to see an QFR with clears.

I think most people in the market for a TKL with clears already got a KUL. Seems like Cooler Master is heading toward Topre instead with the Novatouch.

I would say, only because CM Storm had squandered the opportunity to make a QFR with Clears before KUL did.

Maybe I'm just anal.. but I like the form factor and case of the QFR better than the KUL. I believe the QFR is close to 10mm smaller depth wise and 5-6mm smaller width wise. Also... QFRs are cheaper... sometimes by as much as 50 dollars depending on the availability of switches.

Sorry to dredge up an old thread again, but has anyone heard anything about this ever happening? Or if it did, might it happen again? I can't bring myself to pay $130 for the KUL when the QFR is half that price... If CM could do this for $75 I would buy 2 of them for what I plan to pay for a Pok3r... What a missed opportunity!!!
