Layout Support:

Two tops will be available - one for 7u bottom row with dual 0.75u blockers, and one with a single small blocker for 6.25u support.



The OGR-N PCB has support for regular and southpaw configurations, as well as the option to have a full 1u setup. The plate available will support the regular and southpaw layouts, due to its reversible design.

* Flexerman (FLX) for his crucial input with the board’s design and improvement.
* Koen for his beautiful photos of the prototype.
* Lulzthax for his great build stream.
