I would have to guess it more on the red/pink side than orange.

Nice. I love my Corsair K60 with Cherry MX Red's as well. Much better tactile feel and takes less effort to push the keys too.

Mechanical switches beat any other keyboard switch any day of the week :P

What model number is that one?. I went to Frys and looked at them and saw about 7 different models. Quite confusing. Blue switch....red switch etc. And similar designs and colors but yet appeared alike in certain ways. Some backlit......some partiel backlit....some not at all. Even coolermasters website was not much help in distinguishing.

I would recommend the Cherry MX Red switches. Fairly quiet and requires little effort to push. Does take some getting used to if you don't already have a mechanical board though.

check out this post about mechanical keyboards. If I would buy again, I would go browns again or blue.
