any way to get nonstandard bottom rows for the corsair kb's? there's plenty enough want for them to warrant the modified set.

On this set, not currently. Different sets like the vortex will.

If I've found the right seller on alibaba I dont see why its not possible to get a kit for corsair nonstandards for an additional fee, they have custom jobs available in the description. It just sucks to have a nice side lit kb with a bottom row that looks like shit, yeah shame on corsair for being difficult and making it nonstandard but at the same time if the option is there why not cater to those who want the variation?

Issue isn't material but having side-lit legends.

you know you're really just making an ass of yourself by continuing to post non relevant replies... We asked for a mods set for Corsair KB's for this SIDE LIT keyset not top lit not vortex side lit...

You must be narrow-mindedly dense if you're not thoroughly understanding what I'm saying. Since you're so lazy to look it up, I'll revise and provide a link instead to the similar compatible set for your convenience, so you won't find yourself further hopelessly confused. https://goo.gl/TmiSVs I wish you good luck looking finding compatible sets.

still not relevant to my original comment, we want side lit only (not top lit too) keycap mods for a corsair kb, to this day I haven't found a set that does this the set you linked isn't even close to the same as this pack. The only one confused is you, idk if its a language barrier or what but you keep suggesting products that aren't related to what we're asking massdrop to ask the supplier about...

Jesus, you're overly demanding. You wanted compatibility so I merely suggested two close sets with compatibility whether it was suitable for you or not. Nothing more, nothing less. But you make it sound like I'm trying to suggest you a whole library. And in the end, you still don't get the picture from how narrow-mindedly dense and demanding you are. You're more hopeless than I thought. The set I linked has compatibility with Corsair and Razer, though it has translucent tops, you can easily do a custom quality DIY spray over it, since these keys are only sprayed, just like the ones on this drop. This is what I did, and it looks great. Whether you want to do that or not, up to you.
I don't know how long your "to this day" is, but the main reason you're having a hard time finding and why manufacturers neglect Razer and Corsair is because they have their LEDs north/top, so the front legends won't shine very well, especially if the switch housing isn't clear/transparent. I've tried it on my Corsair, doesn't shine well, even though mine has Cherry's RGB/clear housing, even more so is that Corsair's keyboards uses a floating design so the light will leak out giving it less shine. Tried it on my Razer, doesn't shine well either, even though they have larger LEDs and uses a closed design and not floating like Corsair. Front backlit legends will only work well with keyboards that have their LEDs south/bottom. The rest, I'll let you figure that out. If you think the photos in the description page shows backlighting well, then its not like that in actual environment conditions unless you're in a dim room to dark room. Not deterring you here, just merely letting you know. As you desire them so much, as said, Good Luck.

you're right I do want compatibility, for the set not two different sets that have nothing to do with the suggestion. I'm asking for a modifier set for non standard bottom rows not a completely different product. If wanting a particular product is narrow minded so be it I'd rather want something specific than to just go with whatever the hell works... As far as custom goes I dont want to have to purchase a new set then immediately modify it to meet my needs I want it to work OOB (modifying it out of box is for model railroads not for keycaps.) Not sure how you tested the keyboard but with the set of side lit's I have it works fine on everything but little to no brightness on my RGB strafe so I have no clue what you did to test but it obviously wasn't very much cause even the defaults work fine with the side lit in a bright room...

What I suggested is purely based on gesture from insight and knowledge, but you took it some next way and got irritated, Righty-o. And what I suggested is no where near "completely different product", I'm not suggesting you a fridge or some sort. "modifying it out of box is for model railroads not for keycaps.", modifying keycaps, small, major or whatever DIY reason is not the uncommon in the mech keys community.
Obviously you're not paying attention. Don't know what set you have but not gonna go into the different factors with you, if yours seems fine and works in your view, thats you. Of course it'll work fine, it shines, but as I stated, not well on keyboards with LEDs mounted north.
I've already explained the very slim chance for corsair and razer compatibility. Again, good luck with your continued wait - End of.
