I ordered this directly from pcgamingrace a while back so I figured I'd comment here as well. The knock off cherry stabilizers that come with this are absolutely terrible. The metal clanking/rattling is completely removed by switching to genuine cherry stabilizers even without lubing. Lubing and then clipping genuine stabilizers make a world of difference for typing. Without it, it sounds terribly cheap to type on and I honestly would take a cheap rubber dome over this as I don't believe "the feels" of mechanical switches can overcome how awful rattly stabilizers are.
Stabilizers have these little feet at the bottom of the inserts that can make the stabilized keys feel and "sound" mushy. Here's a video that shows what they look like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6hPoe3srcw
only clipped off the little bumps so they're flush instead of clipping off the entire thing, but they still sound way better without it (admittedly I find that unclipped authentic stabilizers feel pretty bad).
Here's a short video of a comparison between the default and authentic cherry stabilizers (unclipped): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1l3klX-1J58
Thank you, planning to buy new stabs soon so this is super helpful
Did you find it difficult to open up the keyboard and put the new stabs in? I haven't bothered and it doesn't look complicated...just curious.
you don't need to open up the keyboard to remove the stabilizers as they're plate mounted and there are no switches to get in the way of the wire (since it's hot swappable!)
