Hello,
So i recently bought a ducky SF one 2 and it worked great for awhile but then the keys would double click making gaming and typing horrible, so i cleaned it with air duster and thought it would fix it(it never did). So after re installing new drivers on it and everything else it still would double type horribly. Now i also had this issue with my Vulcan 120 AIMO keyboard that again worked perfectly for a good 5-6 months then the keys yet again have started to double type or straight up not register at all after hitting a few times. I RMA'd the ducky keyboard only to find out they said it was working perfectly on their end and they suspect it is a software issue on my end. I'm not sure what to do now cause i feel like both keyboards this expensive shouldnt have messed up like this. Ive plugged in a cheap 10$ walmart keyboard by surf on and its worked fine but my other two still have the issue. Im not sure if ram could play a role in this because i think my ram could also be bad cause everytime i try to take it over 2666 mhz my system freezes up and becomes choppy till i revert it back even tho it says it can go to 3200 mhz, i even only go up to maybe 2800 or even 2700 and it still does it. I'm fairly lost and frustrated by these keyboards failing me cause i really love them. I'm gonna test it on my gfs computer and see if the keyboards still mess up but what other steps should i take? should i replace my ram? re install windows 10 again? any help is appreciated thanks guys!

Specs:
rtx 2070 super EVGA black

500gb SSD
750W g evga
Vengance LPX corsair ram 16gb (bought 5-6 years ago i think and used in 2 diff builds of my own)
Ryzen 3600 cpu

Testing the keyboards on another known working computer such as your gfs is a good start.

Likewise trying other known working keyboards on your computer is also necessary.

Objective is to determine if the problems stay with your computer or follow the keyboards.

As I understand your post the problem stays with your computer.

Try running the builtin Windows' troubleshooters. The troubleshooters may find and fix something.

Also take a look at Ease of Access, Gaming, and Personalization settings in Window. Ensure that all settings are as expected.

Likewise running "sfc /scannow" and "dism" may provide a fix.

Fix Windows Update errors via DISM or System Update Readiness tool - Windows Server | Microsoft Docs

Another place to look is in Task Manager, etc. for any unexpected or unknown apps running in the background. Could be something buggy or corrupted.

Last of all PSU: How old is the PSU? l Heavy use for gaming, video editing, or even crypto-mining?

Remember that PSU's provide different voltages (3, 5, and 12) to various components. Could be that the PSU is nearing its designed in EOL (End of Life) and not always able to provide for or otherwise meet the system's power demands. RAM may the first to "suffer".

Since these are mechanical switches, it's likely there's something within the switch rather than something that can be fixed by cleaning out the keyboard. I don't believe either of these are hotswap keyboards, so you might need to whip out the soldering gun and replace a switch to continue using these keyboards.

Fair enough.

Take a look at the RAM requirements/recommendations for the games you play and the apps that you use.

Before buying new RAM check the motherboard's User Guide and the manufacturer's website for both supported RAM and allowed RAM configurations.

You will most likely need to purchase a matched RAM set for dual channel use.

Read the QVL (Qualified Vendors List) and pay attention to all caveats and details.

Be wary of where you purchase the RAM as well.

As for "wonky" use Task Manager and Resource Monitor (use both but only one at a time) to observe system performance.

Do so by first observing without gaming etc. and then with gaming.

Determine what changes or otherwise happens when things go "wonky".

Still having the same issue ive yet to figure out what the cause is just as an update on this.

I will try to maybe clean install windows 10 and hopefully fix it, if not i am out of ideas as to what the issue could even be. Might also buy another keyboard thats not as expensive as these ones and see if it has issues considering my 10$ walmart one doesnt have issues.
