So I think I may have settled on a board for these keys, unless Massdrop surprises us with their own 96/104 board. https://kbdfans.cn/collections/diy-kit/products/pre-orderkbdfans-kbd19x-90-mechanical-keyboard-diy-kit (sorry on mobile) Two questions for you guys though. 1. Orange to match Ares or Blue to make 'em really stand out? 2. What are the best hotswap sockets to use if I decide to make it hotswap(if I have to solder, I might as well go hotswap)?

I believe if you want to go the safe route and have a very clean and elegant board you should probably grab the silver one because it looks spicy with both Apollo and Ares. The blue one doesn't look like Godspeed blues and the orange one may be too much and not very versatile. I think rarely any keycap set other than Godspeed Ares and Carbon SA could look cool on that one.

Idk. A dark silver like MD space grey does look good with either set. And you may be right about orange, as now it's stuck( by no means a bad thing) as an Ares board, but that dark blue with Ares may be what I'm looking for. Gets me a nice Ultramarine(WH4k) blue, if a bit too dark, the Ares colorway and with the Skull marine artisan I'll be adding it makes for what may be for me endgame in full size format. Then it would be off to explore the 60% and Ortho family of keebs. Still waiting to see what future offerings might bring, but still might just grab the blue and at least have it as an option. 👍

@MiTo Don't want to take up your time, but could you mock up the Ares color with a dark blue case. In my head it its working, but seeing gives a better idea.

It does look absolutely gorgeous doesn't it? I can't thank you enough @MiTo for the render. 1000% confirms that my plans for Ares will be beyond expectations.
