Review Highlights:
Pleasantly Surprised!
So for my first dive into the custom market I couldn't of asked for a better keyboard. The build was therapeutic and painstakingly fun. If you look past the stabs which you should, because we all know Drop's Stabs need work that's being nice about it. The case is well constructed and thought out (could use one more screw on bottom left side) 2 USB type C ports, 60% layout, easy setup and guides along the way. Did have some trouble with the flash as this was my first one, but as soon as I took a deep breath and read closely I was good to go. As for RGB works good, looks good and for me a plus. I work a lot at night and still can't remember the keys so north facing switches works in my favor so I can see what I'm doing. Last but definitely not least this is the quietest keyboard I have ever used and I Love It. 70g Silent Tactile Aliaz Switches Lubed w/Krytox205 G0, Band-aid modded the PCB, Cherry Plate Mount Stabs Modded and Lubed of course (Krytox205 G0/Dielectric Grease), Brass Plate, and White Pudding Caps. Yeah Ya boy set this SH** up right!!

This is an amazing beginner and overall keyboard kit for anyone!
I bought this after I bought the NK65 Entry and I wanted to compare them, and for me, this beats it. This keyboard is literally AMAZING. The only downside I experienced or would recommend doing, is getting different stabs, just because the ones included rattle quite a bit. Besides that, this is an almost perfect board for me. Also another quick thing, putting on keycaps might require a bit of extra force usually on the ones with stabs but just check all of them by pressing them down with extra force.

Q&A Highlights:
Very new to this side of mech keyboards and this caught my attention off the rip. Is there anything (aside from the switch plate) that I need to purchase to make this a complete keyboard? I'd hate to order this only to realize I need something else!
you'll also need switches and key caps
Will this assemble without the add-on plate or do I need to also get a plate to assemble with this?
u do need a plate to fully assemble it

Excellent first DIY keyboard
This was one of my first DIY keyboards and an excellent place to start. I have a copper plate, Aqua Kings and Valiant Skylight keycaps. It continues to be a favourite to type with and it looks cool.

Great RGB!
The RGB is amazing on this keyboard. This was my first DIY kit and it was super easy to put together.

Beautiful RGB Case
The Carina is a great RGB board and at the time it was better than others in its price range. I paired mine with an alu plate and NK Cream Switches and overall the sound profile sounded great. I must add though that case and plate foam were both a must to get rid of hollowness. Only certain case foam will work as well due to the RGB diffusers being on the bottom of the case.

Ghosting but a beauty
This keyboard looks absolutely stunning! With the switches I used it sounds amazing! The only and it is a significant draw back is the ghosting. When I game my controls would ghost and would cause issues for me... if there was a fix for the ghosting that would be great! Aside from ghosting there are no cons!

Great Service
my keyboard broke after a while, but they sent me a new one for free and they were very easy to reach and nice to talk with. 10/10 service would buy from them again.
