I have a recently built PC with Z170 mobo and 6700k/980Ti and a Corsair Strafe (backlit) keyboard. I had some issues with the Ethernet interface not appearing anywhere, which I solved like other people with the same specs on Ubuntu 14.04.
After I boot on Ubuntu, it takes 2-3 minutes for the keyboard to start responding. Also, if I try to adjust its brightness, it will stop responding again. I have no idea where to start looking, since I can't find similar problems online. I have a 750 Watt supply, so I don't think it has to do with high power needs.
Note: The problem with the keyboard existed from the beginning..along with the ethernet thing
UPDATE: I bought a Razer Deathadder and it also takes the same amount of time to start working on boot.
