Sup /mkg/, I'm looking to make my first mechanical keyboard purchase. I think I've settled on the CODE 104 with MX Clears. I just like the minimalism and the fact that it's available with the clears.

I'd like to make a couple of modifications, though. The board comes with ABS keycaps; I'd like to replace those with PBT doubleshots, like this:


However I need to know if these caps are in fact compatible with the CODE and will work with the backlighting. I'm guessing they will, but I wanted to be sure because it says on the CODE website FAQ:

"We do not have any replacement/add-on keycap sets for the CODE. WASD Keyboards can make custom keys that can fit the CODE, but the legends will not be illuminated as our keys do not work with backlighting."

Maybe someone can confirm?

I'd also like to add 0.2mm travel reduction O-rings to the board to further reduce noise, I was thinking of these:


Seems like 50A would be nicer than the usual 40A, especially since this will see some use for gaming and I don't want the bottom-out to feel squishy while holding keys down.

Thoughts, suggestions, criticism?

How the fuck would any of us know if they suit you for gaming?
It's entirely personal preference and you can game with any switch equally good if you practice long enough.
Just buy a keyboard that suits you well, that gives you a deep feeling of pleasure, that is a choire of angels to your ears, that gives your fingertips feelgasms and just use that shit for everything and all and call it a day.

Location: TX, USA.
Layout: ANSI, full size with 10 key preferred, but tenkeyless is acceptable
Switch: Cherry MX Red
Other requirements: Must be backlit, preferrably a not so bright color like red. No contoured keys. Alternatively colored keys are fine, just nothing that feels different like the WASD keys on a Corsair K70. Nothing retarded like a touchpad on the keyboard. Preferrably black case/keycaps but this doesn't really matter.
