As every chef knows the easiest way to make your food taste amazing is by ensuring that your audience is starving. Waiting has made me bitter, but this set has only gotten sweeter.

To be honest, after 4 months I completely forgot I ordered it, and after 6 I forgot what it looked like. I'm trying not to look at too many pics because it will make it that much cooler when I finally get it!
It's been so damn long that I'm actually thinking about picking up a new keyboard for it, my current one is getting worn down....using a KUL ES-87 MX brown, thinking about an identical board but with blues for work...I'm currently running DSA in PBT, and I was surprised by just how much louder PBT was despites the browns. Actually, it may have even been BECAUSE of them, they bottom out so easily and PBT is so damn hard, it makes my bones hurt when I start to hit 150+. I'm hoping the extra width on these keys and the ABS material will cut down on that.

I actually thought the same and tried it. Somebody had some extra ones at the office and let them to me. I didn't notice any difference, but maybe I was doing it wrong. I run DSA Quartz right now, and when I slip the O-rings onto the cap, it feels okay for about 3 presses, and then the ring slides down the length of the key. I guess the stem housing is so deep that the ring isn't even making contact.
IIRC I tried doubling up with similar results. I don't know if I was placing them in the wrong spot, or maybe they just weren't thick enough. They were little black ones, pretty slim.
Any suggestions? They seemed to bottom out the same as they always did. Maybe​ I just didn't give them enough of a chance, and I know a single test key is going to see more pressure than "normal" use.

DSA keycaps don't have the internal cross support, so they need thicker o-rings. Most people suggest either a 3mm o-ring, or a 1.5mm + 2.5mm.
I don't remember what the internal support of a SA cap is like. A redditor posted his findings here: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/46tuub/modification_howto_get_sound_dampening_to_work/d07zqkt/
It's going to be expensive as you need about 4 o-rings per keycap.
