Cherry MX Silent RGB Red switch is the result of Cherry's partnership with Corsair as part of a project to support RGB (full spectrum) keyboard backlighting, as well as to make a quieter switch. Cherry have now adopted the community switch naming scheme, and have selected the aforementioned despite the slider being distinctly pink. The terms "red" and "black" (for Cherry MX Silent RGB Black, which is dark grey) relate the silent models to the non-silent models (both RGB and non-RGB), which are indeed red and black.
It is a clear case switch which is intended to be used with PCB-surface-mounted LEDs.
This switch is available in two variants:
- MX3A-L1NA without pin
- MX3A-L1NB with pin
There is also a non-RGB variant in a normal black housing, which does not include a hole for an SMT LED, instead with the option for a diode or a 3 mm in-switch LED.
