    I just got my BlackWidow Elite with yellow switches and I noticed how sensitive they are. IS there a possibility to make them a bit heavy or at least less sensitive? I really don't want to return my keyboard and I really like the sound they make but I make too many mistakes that somehow even turn me from the game since my hand keeps hitting control.

    Lubing or changing the spring will help kinda

    You need some time to get used to it - as me when changing from Green to Yellow switch - I was making many mistakes, but now it's great for me.

    It's not possible to change the sensitivity of switch, unless you disassemble the top housing and change the spring (but you'll loose your warranty if you have any).

    Yellow mechanical switch requires 45 G of actuation force and responds at 1.2 mm.

    RAZER builds gaming peripherals for gamers and computer users.
    To keep up the competition between Corsair and Logitech, RAZER continues to build better key switches and keyboard layouts to give the gamers every advantage of APM and sensitive presses.

    To take the gaming to the next level~~~

    It took me a while to get use to Huntsman Elite Purple Opto-mechanical switch also.
