Damn, looks much better now than in the previous IC especially with the prototype. Might get a gray one, polypropylene plate is welcome addition. 20.5mm front height sorta high, but manageable.

Design is simple, differentiates itself from other offerings by lower pricing. In addition, bonus points for plum color.

Pretty good budget board IMO (looking better than S58m to me).
But no WKL and HHKB means an easy skip. Sorry for that. WK is just an ugly layout for me and lots of other people.

Why is this a thing when there’s the Cannonkeys Brutal 60 in-stock for cheaper?

The more refined aesthetic (chamfers/radius and a nice usb-c cutout instead of a rectangle...) of the Novus is worth the $10 difference for me. I was really disappointed with my brutal 60. There was sharp edges everywhere, sand blasting/anodizing was very average, the top was bent, it cames with the wrong screws (they were too long, so the first one I tighten seized in the case because I was not expecting that...). I received literally no support from Cannonkeys, so for these reason I would gladly buy the Novus instead. 


EDIT: I just saw that the Brutal 60 at $215 doesn't come with a PCB, so it is actually more expensive than the Novus... Too much for what it is...

Added pictures of PCB to IC. Let me know if there's anything in particularly you'd like to see pictures of.

Also added an updates/changelog section. We're primarily just waiting on the second round of PCB prototypes right now.

Glad I saw this before buying a Brutal60, seems to be better in a lot of ways. A nice little 60% to build!

What's the weight with brass plate?
