Looks fantastic! Now I'm stuck deciding between this one or 7V and I don't which one to pick.
as oth a wonderful, im heading for both.

Dawn is limited sale, so dunno if everyone gets one.

7V is unlimited - hope Dawn sales before 7V

They're both roughly the same price right? In the $350-500 range before shipping and fees?

Think Dawn has no announced price yet - gok said 7V will be quite reasonable priced

but i hope that Dawn is in that range

I thought the Dawn IC form suggests its $400-500? Asking how many boards someone would buy in that price range?

And I thought gok said the 7V would definitely not be $650 and hopefully not $550 or $450, but then he said he didnt want to fix a price yet because of vendors and manufacturing costs etc?

I originally said between $350 and $450 in the IC post, considering that's a fairly safe range; but in the IC survey I ended up putting $400 to $500 to be safe and to account for the fact that it might be more expensive than the initial range. I don't have the official numbers yet, so stay tuned, but I would say it should definitely be in the $400 to $500 range. I hope that wasn't confusing  :)

That's before shipping and paypal fees?

I'm just going to be echoing other comments, but wow, this is the best 75% layout I've seen. I've been looking for something like this for a while.

I really appreciate the "no visible seam" goal for the sides as well. The whole design looks wonderfully clean, I'm really excited for the GB. As long as there is some kind of room for ISO support, I'm all in! :)

The PCB supports ISO, but there aren't plans to offer the ISO plate in the GB due to low demand. However, I will release plate files after the GB if you want to get a plate made somewhere.

Prototype has been delivered to OP, it had troubles with accent not fitting correctly. As of now, new CAD schematic is being designed to fix the issue. Raffle/GB TBA after second prototype. Detailed info can be found in Discord.

Correct with the exception of the fact that I haven't gotten the prototype quite yet!

Is there an idea of how limited this board is? Trying to decide between the 7V by Gok and this.

You have any pics of what the updated plate might look like? Feel like the plate design is what makes the KC mount system work.

I don't know how much traction the numpad idea is gaining, but I would be in for one. I don't think I can justify the 75% both because of cost and the number of boards I already own, but I can definitely do a numpad. I don't have a separate numpad at this time and would love a high quality one.

It's gained quite a bit of traction I would say. At the very least I expect to eventually post an IC for one. The survey gives me data on what percentage of people who want Dawn want a numpad as well, but an IC will be helpful in gauging interest from people like yourself, who want a numpad but not Dawn.

I will be working more on the numpad design once I'm confident Dawn is ready for production.

Awesome! Best of luck with Dawn, and I look forward to that IC and hopefully the numpad eventually! I'll keep an eye out for it. Hope you're staying healthy during these trying times.

I've been lurking/following this for a while now. Don't know why I didn't say something before but this board is gorgeous. This is the board that I am most excited about period. It has all of my favorite design languages, features, layouts, everything. I am impatiently waiting to buy at least 2 of these when the group buy goes live. Thank you for designing this and I really hope everything goes well for you.

I doubt that you'll be able to buy two boards. You have to enter and win in the raffle to buy the board.

LMAO, good luck getting one board. Interest is super high, amount is super limited and you have to win raffle lol.

Two boards lol.....

Thanks! Like the others said getting 2 boards is highly unlikely. I wish I could promise that everyone who is interested will get even one board, but I can't promise that either unfortunately.

Ah I spaced on that. Well I will certainly be chalking up my F5 finger to get at least one and hunting the aftermarket for another perhaps haha. Excellent work though and I hope everything goes smoothly for you. Thank you again.
