>>57190784
wew you're going to have a good time. Don't worry though, those irons are still great for splicing wires and you'll probably be OK for your project. Just make sure you keep the sponge damp and wipe the tip off frequently; this will help keep it from getting too hot and burning up the traces

My biggest tip would be to get some flux, either in a pen or the rosin that i mentioned, and apply it to the pins and pads before heating or you will have a bad time. Keep your tip cleaned and tinned, and don't get discouraged when that solder sucker doesnt remove the solder on your first try; there's an art to it

Going by information from the Desk Authority wiki and my own observation using a keypuller each keyboard is as follows

Keyboard #1

>Made in USA
>Alps SKCM Salmon

Keyboard #2

Had an interesting experience with my z-77 today.

I noticed the F2 key wasn't working unless I really bottomed out the key with a lot of pressure. I took the key cap off and it worked fine. Back on, and fucked again. Take it off, and it's still fucked. Think, might as well try just putting some pressure on it to see if it's a connection issue. I push it at one edge with a bit of force, and now it's working fine.

This model has solderless switches, so maybe it wasn't sitting right and the connection was weak?

Well you see since you bottom out the switch anyway you will make a lot of noise so I wouldn't recommend it. Also browns are noticeably louder then rubber domes.

I would recommend either Matias quiet click switches

The Corsair Keyboards pick up as HID Keyboards. They'll work on pretty much anything.
If you're referring to RGB Control, there is a linux application for it. It works better (and has more granular control) than the Windows application. You could find it with a simple google search too. https://github.com/ccMSC/ckb

I have an opportunity to get a CM Storm QuickFire Rapid with MX Greens for $70. As someone who is constantly bottoming out my Outemu Blues (they're heavier than their Cherry counterparts, mind you), would Greens be a good choice? And how bad are clone switches like Kailh?

It's kind of insane how fucking terrible it feels to type on. It is objectively harder to type on weight wise, and the response just feels worse. I gave it 3 days of testing, and I am still missing letters while typing because the activation force is so fucking different/weird despite them using the same switch.

Is that PC Gaming Race modular board or whatever supposed to be any good? It's gonna be my first mechanical, also hopefully my last for a while too, and they've got a coupon that brings it down to $83.

I was also looking at the Fnatic/Func Rush and Corsair Strafe. Trying to keep around $100.

I was gonna get a Leopold when I first started looking cause they seem neato but the price of a backlit one is kinda high and my touch typing is like a B- at best right now. Should I just go for it and sink or swim on learning to type in the dark? It also doesn't have a numpad, but I know it's mostly habit that drives me towards full keyboards, I barely use the thing.

Here's what I do: rest your finger lightly on a 1u size key on your board, and wiggle it in all directions. The amount that my zealios wiggle is identical to my cherry board. Now do the same with the key pressed halfway in, and the cherry switch wiggles the same amount, while zealios wiggle a tiny bit more. Maybe it's because I'm a moderately fast typer, but the amount of wobble a switch has when partially pressed isn't something I ever notice because that goes really fast.

Question about key profiles and acquiring PBT keycaps:

I'm not the Anon that >>57197227 was responding to but I liked his advice looking for a board with MX Clears, and leaning toward KBParadise V80 over something like CODE. It's cheaper and I'm not a fan of backlighting anyway.

So I have two questions:
1. Does anyone you know what profile the V80 is? I'm concerned about buying a keycap set with the wrong sized spacebar and modifiers.

2. If I buy a new keycap set of a different profile (as in the key's angles), will it look/feel weird as long as I replace the entire set?

For instance, if I get this for the V80:

DSA patriot is better
http://pimpmykeyboard.com/dsa-patriot-keycap-set/

I suggest you look at this image to see keycap profiles >>57204549

To answer your question:
1) V80 uses the standard layout and they come with OEM profile so pretty much everything will fit on them
2) Yes if they come in a different profile. If its the same profile you can mix and match, but they have to be in the same row in order to be replaced.

And yes those keycaps that you posted are compatible

Thanks for the quick reply.

Just to make sure I heard right, you shouldn't mix and match profiles, that makes sense. But if for instance even though the V80 is an OEM profile, and thus any OEM will work, another set such as the the DSA Patriot you linked, would still feel consistent if I used the entire set, correct?

Or, put another way, the profile is determined by the keycaps only, and not by some angling internal to the way the switches are set up in the board?

There are two different types of profiles
Keycaps which are OEM, DSA, Cherry, and the rest in the image I linked to you. If you don't mix them it should feel consistent. It should be noted that the rows aren't uniform. For example Row 1 and Row 4 have different profiles so if you mix two of them even if they are from the same profile it wouldn't be consistent. DSA and g20 (pic related) are uniform so the orientation shouldn't mater

the second is keyboard profile which shouldn't effect your keycap placement

You can practically feel the scratchiness of the switches from those sound samples, though. I actually caught myself gritting my teeth and cringing like someone was raking their nails down a chalkboard.

>> No.57214591

>>57212682
Not sure why >>57212825 is trying to overcomplicate the answer since you seem to understand right, but just to lay it out:

Yes with most modern keyboards you can switch between sets as long as all the keys are the same profile (e.g. You can mix and match two OEM sets or two DSA sets without issue, but not between an OEM and a DSA set).

I think the other thing that >>57212825 was trying to point out is that with some sets where ALL the keys are uniform, you can also swap between rows (e.g. you could swap your standard QWERTY layout for Dvorak or etc., but for an OEM configuration, you can't, since separate rows have different curvature (e.g. the QWERT row of keys have a different curve from the ZXCVB row of keys).

I'll never get the appeal of 40% and under boards, having to do Fn+Alpha to press the number keys is too out there for me.

It's weird at first, but it gets pretty comfy not having to reach for numbers. I've used this board so much that going back to a 60% feels weird

Horizontal size reduction I can see a purpose to, but you can already reach the entire alphanumeric block without moving from the home row.

P-Please

Please help me pick my first non-meme mechanical keyboard.

>Budget: $150 - $225

>Location: California

>Preferred switch type: Brown or clear sound the coolest to me. Of course Topre does too, but those are far more expensive as I understand it.

>Layout: ANSI

>Form factor: %60 or %80, I don't tend to use the arrow keys or insert/home/pg up/pg down very often but I don't know how hard if would be without them.

>Backlight: Yes please

>Previous/current keyboards: Corsair K70 with Cherry MX reds. (one of the LEDs went out and the thing is LOUD)

Thanks in advance.

Ok dropping in for some of your great wisdom. I have a Ducky Zero DK2108 with red switches and due to a fuckup it needs to be replaced.

Now I would be perfectly happy to buy another one but they seem to be sold out everywhere. Is there anything similar in the same price range($90-100) Preferably no backlight/LED shit.

>>57214813
On second thought, backlight is optional. Preferred to be white if present.

KUL ES-87 or Code keyboard TKL.

Clears can be heavy if you don't learn not to bottom out though. I hope you know what you're getting.

Guys, i have the possibility to make IBM badges, how do i make one that will fit a Unicomp molded one?

I want to help, but the ~$50 budget is a hard thing to satisfy. My only familiarity in terms of boards is with Cherry MX switches and Topre switches. You can sometimes catch a non-backlit Rosewill or Cooler Master board in the $60-75 range that has either MX Reds or MX Blacks. So if you can spare an extra $20 I would say make your life easier and just look for one of those deals.

More recently-available linear switches like Gateron's linear "Red axis" or "Black axis" come in boards that sit just below those Cherry MX boards in price. So maybe look at Qisan Magicforce and friends, you might catch a lucky listing around $50? I don't have any experience with Gateron, Greetech or others, so I can't vouch for them personally.

>>57214806
Isn't everything like 50% more expensive down there because of the glorious 'straya tax? Probably won't find anything in that price range(probably not even shit tier level gaymur gear). The only keyboard I can think of right now is a Magicforce 68, that's not a TKL though.

Massdrop currently has the Infinity x GMK for sale, might want to check that out.

You can get stuff shipped here from China for fairly cheap if he really wants to keep to the $50 limit (I'm assuming USD because lmao a decent mech board for $50AUD, not gonna happen).
