Made by mkc? Are there stand-offs? Don't see any in the pic. Does this support the korean version?

I had one of their TKL cases and it was... not good. No standoffs. Little dings in the aluminum here and there. Felt cheap for being as expensive as it was.
I was wrong as SamH pointed out. See my comment below.

I thought the TKL cases were made by TEX ? and this one by MKC ?
Never tried aluminum cases before, but I indeed has come through a review with a faulty aluminium TKL case for Filco TKL.

http://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=212 <- That one. It's horrible.
So you're right. I was mistaken. Regardless, a case without standoffs is a bad plan.

I think I know dem feels man. I originally intended to buy it for a Phantom build (I'll assume you would know this one already... but basically, custom TKL keyboard) since it would fit a filco. But after watching some review I'd hold it off since the downside is too much...
Hope it would not happen to this one ahaha.

AFAIK, if these cases are by MKC (which has terrible zinc keycaps), their cases are pretty good actually. Just gone for a review on their case for Poker and I must say I'm impressed.

Wondering if the smaller board / different key layout might lessen the impact of a lack of standoffs.
A little annoyed with the ping on mine with tactile greys, so if I can slip a think foam sheet under there, that might be a good thing on two counts.
Still... not sure if I want to beta test for $110. At least there are eight days to think it over.

The FC660M doesn't allow for standoffs. The only hole available in the PCB is the large one to the right of the enter key.

Hi Jerry8,
I'm pretty sure there are 3 standoffs in the FC660M case, including that big hole w the screw near the enter key :)

Oh yes you're right, the 2 on the home row. I guess they were just cheap and didn't want to put all the support for those 2 standoffs. I wish this wasn't so blocky looking .

I've tried many solution to the pings, many included case related modifications like you mentioned, the only solution that worked was to lube the springs, everything else is just placebo (sound insulation might improve the sound characteristics tho, so it's nice to have some foam inside the case)

So, is there a way that someone can confirm that the final version of this case will have the proper standdoffs?
Whats the point of getting this if the pcb isnt going to be supported? Is there another way the pcb can be supported? It makes me think the left side of the pcb is just going to bounce around the inside of the case.

I don't think the final version will have standoffs because it looks like they designed the bottom part of the case for the plate to rest directly on. You can see it clearly in the last picture and the diagonal corners are there for for the plate which also have them.

(y) we need a confirmation from massdrop.
If this one is by MKC (since it looks alike MKC GeekKeys case, as claim in the desc, so I **assume** it would be from MKC), I believe it would have standoffs. Like the POKER 60% case by MKC, they have proper standoffs.
and then again, my argument is only valid if this case is by MKC and there exists a beta version of this case (a real pic instead of 3D rendering)...
Let's just hope...
