Find a high end 60% case
« on: Thu, 19 October 2017, 07:29:35 »
Hi everyone!

I am looking for an high end 60% case to go with my Zeal60 RGB PCB and zealios.

Price is not an issue (not that I really want to spend 400$ on a case :p )
- ANSI layout or HHKB
- globally everything nice and more appealing than an aluminum case from AliExpress is interesting

Thanks !  :D

There was a groupbuy for a 60% case on kbdfans, it's over now but I'm pretty sure they'll have it in stock once they delivered to all the participants.

There's the lambo cases as well, but both of those are plain aluminium. If that is not "high end" enough for you I'm not really sure where else to point you since I don't know if there have been 60% cases with brass inserts or the like…

True, what's nice about the kbdfans case is that they include aluminium blockers for HHKB and Winkeyless layouts. Good luck on your search!

This one is coming soon.

I think the gb is already open, but it is an ortho one, I don’t want that, even more it has to fit the zeal60 pcb which is not ortho

Ah yeah, totally missed the fact it was ortho. There seems to be a high end case cropping up pretty often these days. Wasn't there one on the horizon from Revo?

Indeed. I miss the one 60 drop of revo on massdrop. I was not very fond of the color (white, baby blue or light pink). It is sad because the finish look amazing with some more vivid color it could be amazing (purple, orange ..)

The Klippe should be back in stock at 1upkeyboards in the near future.  Also, the Fjell group buy is down the road.

Look for a Fjell on mechmarket, that's about as high-end 60% as you can get - and it fits the Zeal60 perfectly. Source: I had a Fjell + Zeal60 until yesterday.

Thanks all for your answer ! With your help and my search I start to have more ideas about possible candidates. I will see what is coming up in the near future on 1upkeyboard or here as groupbuy!

I bought SA budapest yesterday on keyclack (I never thought I would spend so much ahah!), so now I have some more constraints than just “60% layout for zeal60”, it also have to fit the keyset color  :p

If you want the Fjell, then go for it.  They do look fantastic!  The price and the waiting is a drag, though.

Be aware, not all those Aliexpress aluminum cases are the same.  I recently got a custom TKL someone had built on a Lambo case, and it is really nice, much better than I expected.  Now I've got a yearning for a 60% Lambo… especially if I can find one in silver.  I like silver.

Some weeks ago I saw iQunix Lambo 60% cases (silver, etc) on both Amazon US and KBDfans website. The one on Amazon US looks legit

I know you didn't want Aliexpress, but.... https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/GH60-A60-Heavy-Anodized-Aluminum-CNC-Case-for-60-Mechanical-Gaming-Keyboard-Compatible-Poker2-Pok3r-Faceu/429151_32755077090.html

One of the nicest looking 60% cases IMO. You can probably find it for much cheaper on TaoBao too, if you do some digging.

klippe, when it comes back

or an FMJ clone
QFR | MJ2 TKL | "Schumiboard" | "Bulgogiboard" (Keycon 104) | MIRA SE | Weaven (MOD-M) | TGR Alice (68g vints) | MEME | Keycult No 1 (when it ships) | Southpaw Fullsize (when it ships) | I mostly use the Alice, but the Mira gets some use

has puddsy gotten an award for person most involved with things hes not involved in at all, yet?
