Nearly two-thirds (62 percent) of firearm deaths in the U.S. are suicides.

Of the 169,395 firearm deaths in the US from 2011 to 2015 (the most recent five years of data available), 105,183 (or 62 percent) were suicides. To calculate this total, Everytown relies on CDC data regarding fatal injury by intent.

Now that I have 2 keyboards, I realize that I don't even type enough to warrant all the obsessing I've been doing. The only extended periods where it really matters are during gaming sessions or software hotkeys, and I don't think that any sort of heavy weight or tactility is really necessary in these situations. I could foresee situations down the line at a job where I'd be doing many data entries, but that's mostly just numbers.

It's not like I'm going to be a stenographer or writer, so maybe none of this was really necessary after all. Gateron red or some other sort of light linear and call it a day.

So I just got a KBP V60, it came with a sticky switch, at first I used some isopropyl to "clean" it, it came good, but after a while, the switch became "Sticky" again.

I managed to lube it and it now is working as expected, I figure it is just a dodge switch(clearances fucked or something), but im ok to keep it lubed.

My question is, could I replace this switch ? is it possible to do that on a KBP V60 without desoldering etc ??

also, it is a MX brown switch, is my reasoning that the switch is most likely "tight" reasonable ? any pro tips ?

and last one, where can I get some epic DSA keycaps for this particular board ?
WASD
Pimpmykeyboard
any others I should be looking at ?

Any MX-stem switch where your fingers can "rebound" back off the key easily for typing while still being easy to hold/actuate for gaming? Obviously MX browns would be under this category but I heard they're shit. Are gaterons any better on the tactility end or are they about the same?

I have a V60 albeit with Matias switches. The switches are plate-mounted, meaning you'll need to de-solder it from the PCB to remove it. Don't be put off by that idea though, it's not difficult just take your time.

As far as I know, DSA is a profile by Signature Plastics (sold through their Pimp My Keyboard brand) so they are your only real bet for keysets. Keep an eye out for groupbuys, or you can buy regular dye-sub sets freely from PMK, but with limited colour / legend options. You should be able to reproduce your image easily though.

The mechanical keyboard I'm looking to buy comes with ABS keycaps with transparent letters (backlit keyboard). I'm worried about the keycaps going bad because I guess ABS is cheap plastic. Should I worry about that? And how hard would it be to find a replacement keycap set (when they do go bad), and how much would it cost?

Thanks!

>>58874389
ABS just gets shinny and develops a yucky texture over time. If the keycaps are double shot then the legends will never fade off. It will last at least a couple months before the oils in your skin begin to eat away at the plastic. If you don't mind the shine then there is no need to buy replacement keycaps and if you can touch type then who cares they'll last you pretty much forever. If you want you can get dye-sub PBT keycaps which are much more resistant to shine and will never fade away since the legends are burned into the keycap becoming a permanent part of it. PBT keycaps can go from anywhere between 30-90 bucks depending on if they are laser etched, double shot, or dye-sublimated. ABS can also anywhere from some cheap $10 pad printed set, to a GMK set which would cost $100

that's not true. You can get keycaps anywhere. Aliexpress has tons of options, and massdrop has some to. If you want more premium keycaps you can wait for a group buy, the problem with that is if you miss the original run you'll have to wait years if you're lucky for it to drop again.
Generally look for keycaps made by NPKC, Gateron, EnjoyPBT, and Ducky.

I'lll get a 60% Keyboard and a separate numpad in case I need to use it.

The problem now is, what numpad does have the numbers and direction keys (and print, block, home, etc) keys?

If I can't find a good one I guess I'll go with regular numpad and ten key less keyboard, but I won't use the numpad as much as if it had the other keys.

Does anyone know how to get cherry stabilizers rattle less. I've had some success just stuffing some tissue under both sides of the spacebar stabilizer wire which stops the wire from moving up and down causing some rattling, and restricts it to just rotating which is all it should do in the first place. It works well enough and removes most of the rattle, but it's impossible to get under the other stabilized keys when the plate and other switches are in the way. The part where the wire latches into the stem also seems to rattle a little. Would aftermarket stabilizers be better and where should I get them from? Or otherwise how should I modify the stabilizers.

Played with the RGB leds for 10 minutes after I got bored of them and turned them off. The feel is nice but I expected more tactile feedback, I feel like I have a hard time not bottoming out the keys, maybe the rings will help.

Not for Razer at least, it would not work with their brand. Cooler Master feels more industrial though, not sure about them.

The non standard layout will make it hard to replace the keycaps. Get something like a magiforce 68 instead

They're still nice and thick as far as ABS go; a huge improvement over the stock ABS that my KUL ES 87 came with. They also didn't start shining a month into use like the stock ones did.

no but they still will start shining after half a year or so
it's idiotically expensive to buy two sets of $160 plastics twice a year if you don't want to deal with shine and slipperiness

sometimes my "D" key doesn't work on my Magicforce (brown switch). I haven't removed the cap or anything yet but it's still fucking annoying.

Has anyone else ever had a problem with the magicforce and this shit?

Was it doing it from the start or just started now?
Either way its probably faulty soldering or defective switch.

just starting now
I've had it for a few months

Wondering about this too. Gonna see if there are any long term demerits to using the Memeforce68
My choices for my poorfag keyboards are
>Tada68
>Anne PRO
>Magicforce68
All preferably with browns
Only the Magicforce68 is natively available in my country, the others have to be shipped with bangchinked or alichinkexpress
They're also roughly 1/3 to twice as expensive as the Magicforce, is it worth the jump for the placebo effect?

Also planning to install custom keycaps, which of these are the most impeded by that?

Thanks, /mkg/
