EDIT: didn't read it right
check the solder and check if any of it touches the bottom case
make sure you clipped all the ends of the leds if you soldered them in
try a different cable and usb port
can't give you much more advice myself, hopefully someone else knows more

My bad, sorry for the confusion, I meant the underglow. I haven't install or solder any switch LEDs yet, I was just testing the underglow, and it stopped working on both the bottom case and my desk mat...

This is the coolest artisan I've seen in a while!
For the color, red (crimson colored especially) would be awesome to pair with my Sanctuary set when I get it :P
Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Hell ya man. Clubs arent gonna make a huge difference for a long time unless they just dont fit. I'd say get some new grips put on those clubs and keep practicing. Golf is sooo rewarding but also the most frustrating **** I've ever done.

 :)) So true.

Were unable to haz the fun @ golf until drinking started..

I'm sure there will be a bit of that with the fellows from work. With moderation of course. A few years back though a former coworker drank too much (Jack Daniels), drove home, crashed into a tree and tried running from the police. Lost his license so that screwed up his life for a long while.

EDIT: hello everyone, I'm totally new to the keeb community and I recently got a duck viper v2 kit, first custom keyboard!

The kit came with an unbuild PCB. I started testing the pcb last night (without soldering and switches), at first everything works fine, the underglow were gorgeous. But after 10 minutes the underglow  stopped working. I thought it might be firmware problem, so I flashed the pcb(I tried both QMK and 02D), all keys registered, but the underglow just wonít turn on. Instead, the underglow would flash at the moment when I plug the pcb to my computer, after that they won't turn on.

I know I'm new to customize keymap, I thought maybe I didnít get the right key for underglow LEDs, so I customized all LED related keys in my layer 1(replacing 1-0) . Still nothing works :/

Have anyone ever encountered anything like this? Iím starting to think maybe I shorted the underglow somehow? But it was a brand new PCB and I only plugged it in 3 times before LEDs failed. hopefully I just missed some steps.

thanks in advance! :thumb:

I got one of those Kailh BOX Switch testers, with the nine main types. Without the caps I used my fingers and they felt smooth, much smoother than Cherry or any other MX clone. In playing around with these, I took my sample pack of R1 keycaps from WASD and tried to match every color of BOX switch to every keycap. As I did this over and over (probably 5-7 times for each keycap) I noticed that there was more key wobble. I looked underneath: the female cross-stem had visible signs of wear and tear, and even had faded a bit, from when plastic is strained. Now, the original keycaps that came with the tester were R3 clears, and VERY hard to pull off.

So I'm wondering: when I get my final board, or at least a set of switches and caps I know will be my endgame, should I put them one once and NEVER take them off, at least until maintenance or replacement? I really do think that the keys wobble a lot more, and this may not matter to a lot of enthusiasts, but this is pretty much the main thing I care about. I want my fingers to feel like they are resting on stone columns, not Jenga blocks.

(Any tips to mitigate wobble would be much appreciated.)
