This is phenomenal. Sad that I won't be able to buy this because my group buy is in October and I probably won't have funds till later. I think the FE would look better as Fe to match the standard element capitalization, but that's just my opinion. Keep up the good work!
Where are the umbra x iron165 renders
Haha, maybe I'll get some soon!

Btw wish the raffle would be held earlier so people who get selected can prepare the money earlier.

I believe in their Discord server they stated that an ISO plate will be available for order.

This is correct, we will be offering a dedicated ISO plate and will be releasing plate files after the GB.

Polished vs matte is definitely a preference thing. We'll be sticking with a matte finish on this run, but if you are handy, you could always polish the copper yourself  :thumb:

More news on colors very, very soon  :thumb:

Blue-gray is out for this run. Dark Gray, Plum, and Navy still in the running.

Any news?

Thanks!  :D

Depending on the lighting, it almost appears to change hue a bit. Sometimes it looks like a deep purple, other times it appears like a deep, red wine. We're very, very happy with how it came out.

That sounds even more intriguing. Unfortunately I can't afford it this round, but I am very interested if you're running the same colored case/ano on a future project. Hoping for a 75% with ISO compatibility or a HHKB style 60%.

Good luck with this GB! Looks like it will do great :)

We are getting closer and closer to the supposed group buy timeline. Is there any news? It's a bit worrying that there is only a week or so left until "late september" and there isn't even a typing test up. Pray this doesn't get delayed...

I'd highly advise that you join the discord, they have a sound test and some videos of typing. https://soundcloud.com/user-257542014/iron-165-hp-1/s-p2Klq is a link to a sound test.

Oof, thanks for the update. I still think they should help have updated geekhack because otherwise everyone would have to join 10+discords to learn about every IC they are interested in.

I also read that the GB is going to happen "maybe in the first week of October" for FE, and "second week of October" for SE, or the other way around. I'm going by that since that's the most recent thing I read about the timeline a couple days ago.

Discord is miserable. It saddens me that everyone around this hobby has moved over to it and throws other methods of comms to the wind. I wish GH's irc would make a return, or Matrix to become more adopted. Some of us won't put spyware on our machines for nice keyboards, even though we love us some nice keyboards

Hi All,

Sorry for the lack of a typing test.  I check Geekhack almost daily for questions and just saw this earlier.  I went out and bought a webcam ($40 logitec one, nothing fancy) and a Blue Snowball microphone so I could throw together a quick typing test for you all.  Please see the link.


In regards to the group buy, it is looking to be early/mid October as Cannon Keys has to wrap up the Equinox GB first.  We will have more detail in the coming days on exact date and the colors that will be selected.

I literally beg all you you to have the starting time for this be in the late afternoon (as in after 1pm) - I have really important to me in the morning and I would hate to miss out on this for that.

With the FE being a raffle, and the SE described as "25 units never to be produced again", doesn't that imply that the SE version will have future runs beyond the initial 200?

The FE is "25 units never to be produced again". I believe there are plans for future iterations of SE.

The FE is more of a proof of concept, a thank you to our very first supporters, and generally just something very cool (or at least we think so).

But we don't plan to stop making boards after this. We've got a few more boards in the works that we plan to run in the future, and if demand is high enough, we're likely to run the 165 SE again as well.

I am very interested in this board and was considering building it with some Alps blue I have left.
Do you know where/how I could find a plate for such a build ?
Otherwise I guess I'll just go for gateron inks  :)
