Would help if we knew your budget mate. Also I don't believe blues are THAT common in gaming keyboards unless you go to a dedicated manufacturer like Ducky or Filco.

My 2 cents, if you're looking for a very good value mechanical i am having no issues with my Steelseries 6Gv2 (cherry blacks)

the main reason i want blues is for the clicky sound when i press down for typing, cause i do alot of typing, and the steelseries 6G2v is not backlit.
at the moment, if i go for cherry mx blue's then the CM storm quickfire TK.
or if i decide id rather have the number pad and aroow keys seperate but sacrifice the cherry mx blue's then il go for corsair k95 (cherry red) or k90 (cherry black)
and i dont have much of a budget but try keep it under 150 but mainly cheap as posible.

CM storm quickfire TK would be an excellent choice! It got a great review on here too

I don't believe you can have all them features on one KB. The detachable numpad is hard to find that match the rest.

In fact the only backlit-mechanical gaming keyboard with detachable numpad I know of is the Mech5 which doesn't use blue switches and is red backlit.

you could try the k95 which is what i have it lights up and has the macro keys but it also has a rear usb port which you could put a num pad into, if that helps, so you could use that off off the keyboard

I got the Storm Trigger 2 months ago. It burned out on me RMA'd it a few days ago. Waiting for it to come back oh god do I miss it loveee the thing..

If you do get it don't use the 5v power input. Coolermaster don't include the power supply for a reason

I got the brown, My wrist is killing.. Can't tell if carpel tunnel or my slave job is at fault. Although ever since RMA'ing it's been actually healing, While in possession it seemed to get worse and worse. Odd because if that is the case I haven't been on the computer much at all o_O Cherry MX Deathhhhhhhhhhh
