Hey, I heard that when using this board with GMK keycaps, the keycaps hit the switches? Is it like this with all boards or is it this one specifically? I'm thinking of getting this with NovelKeys Cream switches and I'm pretty sensitive to sound.

It has to do with the orientation of the switches. Our keyboards have "north-facing" LEDs (LEDs are on the side of the switch facing away from the user) in order to illuminate the legends of shine-through keycaps. When switches are oriented with north-facing LEDs, they can have a clearance issue (reduced switch travel due to contact between keycap and switch housing) with R3 Cherry profile keycaps, namely those of GMK. This is the case for all keyboards that orient switches this way. The keycaps can still be installed and functionality of the affected switches is unchanged. The reduced travel may or may not be an issue for you. The sound of the keycaps hitting the switch housings may or may not be an issue for you. That is for you to decide.

Just wanted to give people the heads up, there's about 100 of these left in inventory. Likely won't be restocked for a while after this.

The barebones version does not have a $20 discount for new sign-ups?

I think if you buy it, then contact customer service, they'll refund that $20

It will be active as long as we have inventory and it will periodically be produced in batches to replenish said inventory. If you miss it, you'll have to wait until we get more. The stabs are very lightly lubed by the factory, but not enough to really make a difference. From an enthusiast standpoint, the stabs are not lubed.

Ah for fuck sake... Guessing this applies to the MechKeys part of things too then as that was posted in the Headphones Subreddit.

Forgive my lack of knowledge here, but I have the HyperX pudding keycaps that I have been meaning to use for a while now. Would I be able to use those keycaps on this keyboard? Or does this keyboard have any non-standard key sizes? If so, are there any keycap sets other than the three offered that will be fully compatible?
