Does this case help at all with the pinging noise on the Rev3 Preonic?

No, but lubing your springs will. Also adding some kind of dampening material under the PCB will help.

I'd like to know the answer to David_R's question as well. Price seems to be the same as offered by Datamancer.

Well, this might be hard to believe but that was an error on my website. The Preonic case should have been more expensive than the Planck case as it takes wood pieces that are harder to get.

Thanks for that clarification. Looks like you're honoring the price anyway on your website. So is there any difference in the quality offered between the two places?

I have a Massdrop Preonic in my hand, but the screw is not aligned and I can't wear it. I'd like to know the size of the screw to match it. In this Massdrop, all materials such as PCB and case are fastened with a single screw, so it cannot be matched to the Hardwood Case.

@Datamancer Hi, I just received my case from the prior drop last week for the Preonic Rev2 fit. The case looks great but there is no mounting hardware... Was that intentional? Based on the pics, I assumed the standoffs and screws to secure them would be part of the case. If they were in fact not included, can you tell me what size standoff fits this case best? Second questions, seeing the tall vs normal questions on newer drop, will the case I have fit uniform row 3 SA caps?

I can't really give you further assurance than telling you they will be there. If they're not there when shipped out you can always email me and I'll send some out to you.

What is the difference between the two height options? Are there screenshots for them? Cheers

I was curious about this myself and was able to find this picture: https://i1.wp.com/datamancer.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/TallvsReg.jpg?fit=1000%2C667&ssl=1 I would assume its only a difference in regards to the height of the lid for people using high profile keycaps. I wouldn't take my word for it though as I could easily be wrong.

You are correct. Only the lid is of a different height. Standard will only fit keycaps of standard keycaps height or lower, while tall fits up to SA keycaps height.

Which keycap profiles can be used to be able to close the case? Do OEM or SA keycaps fit?
