Need to know what protocol it uses, DIN->PS2 with an active USB converter like the blue cube will work for AT boards. Other stuff like XT needs a soarer's converter or something custom.

>> No.53815880

1. A lot of old keyboards draw too much power for that.
2. It has to be an active PS/2 to USB adapter.
3. #2 will be fine if the keyboard is AT, but might not if it's XT.
Surefire solution is to buy/make a soarer's converter.

You don't have to if you don't want to. Clears are some of the easiest to not bottom out on because they are actually really heavy at the bottom compared to the rest of the regular cherry line.

I could but by that point it will be the 160 + 20 tax and I am really paying the ass for this damned board I purchased mostly for ergonomics. The realforce would have been something like 200 and that makes getting proper caps more expensive. Also selling the extra spacebars that shit came with.

I went and tried some shitty razer at the video game convention and am ashamed to say I actually liked how it was, just the very light amount of force for my feeble fingers I guess. Probably browns. Topre is very nice still but I can't justify the price.

Noob to mech boards. I bought pic related when it hit $45. This is the gen 1 version too. Old enough that it uses Mini-USB and not micro. Still using it to this day with zero problems. Been contemplating new caps though and I don't know where to even begin looking for caps that would fit this board as I do know there are diferent sizes/shapes.

>Inb4 gaymer keyboard

I bought it when I was like 17 and was saving my pennies from my ahit minimum wage job. $45 for a mech board from a name brand company was a god send and I'm loathe to toss fully functional tech.

Sorry, I don't usually post here despite owning a mechanical keyboard, buuuutttt...

>> No.53819594

Did you get your viper prebuilt did you get a kit?
It feels better i guess, I also have a Mx master for occasionally gaming tho

>> No.53819624

Yeah you're gonna have a hard time replacing keys for your bottom row.
It is possible to get 1u (1 unite wide) fn-keys etc. for bottom row, so in that regard you just need to look a bit and/or buy single keycaps. But I don't think it's going to be as easy to find a new spacebar in that length.

Also, if you go with blank keycaps you'll have a much better chance. Something you can do is buy a set of blank keycaps that come with a numpad - since the numpad two bottom rows has exactly 5 1u keys in the same profile (since the bottom two rows and top two rows use the same profile in all profiles I know of), and you have exactly 5 non-standard modifier keys on your bottom row.

>> No.53819635

Wait, sorry, the numpad only has 4 standard 1u keys in the bottom rows.

>> No.53819743

Thanks. How can I generally tell the dimensions of my key caps? Is it just a guessing game?

>> No.53819851

>Did you get your viper prebuilt
No, I bought the kit in the first groupbuy on GeekHack.

>> No.53819894

There's only so many different sizes. The rest of your keyboard seems pretty standard (except I just noticed your right shift is also only 1u, rip), so it's mostly just your bottom row.
You should be able to tell the sizes just by comparing to charts online or something. My guess would be that your left ctrl and left alt are 1.25u (which is standard for those, thankfully) while the rest of bottom row is definitely 1u. As to your spacebar, it looks like it's 4.25u, whereas standard spacebars are 6u I believe. But knowing that, you can probably just google 4.25u spacebar keycap and probably find something.

>> No.53819899

just checked, standard spacebars are 6.25u

Less hand movement, less space taken on your desk for keys that you don't use.
And pok3rs are more expensive because of the aluminum case and the stock pbt caps.

60% keyboards are more expensive in general since there's a smaller market for them than there is for full size/tkl keyboards, since those are the main choice for gaymurs, who make up a large part of the mechanical keyboard userbase.

>> No.53830610

Are you the guy who wants ISO? Because I don't think I've seen ISO with backlighting (someone might have to correct me here), only ANSI.

There is also the fact that Pok3r RGB is supposed to be release soon I think. So maybe it's worth to wait for that to arrive.

Yup I have clears coming on my next board cause they are smoother. But the browns are definitely what I wanted. My non bitch hands love them now.

>> No.53838456

it's ok. I have a Pok3r with clears and they really are amazing.

I also joined the Planck drop with Zealios 65g. I'll make sure to have at least the memeist Cherry switches when I go full Topre.

The mint caps look shorter, are they cherry profile? Very nice looking board - though I've never been a fan of keycaps with the window for capslock togglelighting.

>> No.53839458

They're definitely shorter, but I wouldn't say that they're Cherry profile.

I'm not a fan of the windows either. Hoping to get some thicker white PBT blanks in the future that don't have em (perhaps some Gateron Ghost Whites).

I bought a set of blank pbt whites that are good quality and fairly thick from aliexpress - and it doesn't have the windows.

Does there exist any mouses where the right and left mouse button have mechanical switches?. I'm the anon who asked about carpal tunnel earlier in the thread. I just ordered a trackball mouse, but I just got thinking that having proper quality switches for the mouse buttons would probably help a shitload too.

What does /g/ think of the Ergodox?

>> No.53841643

why u break it apart?

>> No.53841663

Because its ergonomic and you can put stuff in the middle.

>> No.53841668

Seems quite interesting, but I think I'd sooner get an UHK rather than an ergodox since the former maintains the traditional offset columns and can be fit into a single piece.

>> No.53841678

>you can put stuff in the middle
Such as?

>> No.53841693

i think they are pretty cool
but learning to type on it would be fuckin effort.

>> No.53841732

But why do you want the traditional offset other than convention? Staggered keys made sense on typewriters because of how the mechanism worked, but for actual comfort it seems that straight columns make more sense. Your left hand is (and always has been) pulling to the left to compensate for the offset.

Anyone used MaxKeyboards for key caps? Thinking about buying a set in the 'miami' colours, but I'm not sure whether it'll look good, their colours look rather vague
