Cool :rolleyes:

I was wondering if bottom row is 4 or 5. So it can be both then.

Most of the full size boards will have R5

But 1800s you'll find R4 and I've also seen some full sizes with R4 as well

So Cherry did do some messing around with their profiling back in the day, although 2-2-2-3-4-4 sound pretty funky to me. R5 on the other hand I wish would make a comeback, I got the OG set of GMK Sky Dolch that came with R5 caps & I always use them over the R4 ones!

1800s like the one below have the flatter top profile

But yeah, GMK now has R5 (1u, 1.25u, 1.5u, numpad enters...) for all compatibility since GMK Carbon R2 so people should make more use of it.

IMO, it's superior.

I guess the flatter profiling does make a bit more sense on a board like that. Also good to know since I have almost pulled the trigger on similar Cherry 1800s & did not know it had a different cap profiling. I agree with R5 being the superior option for Cherry profile bottom rows, but we seem to be in the minority there. Hopefully more sets start to make use of it going forward though!

Of the full-size G80-3000, the winkeyless had R5, but those with Windows keys have R4 at the bottom.

Cool, thanks. I have some OG at home (I think it was from Desko keyboard), I'll check what profile it is.

Cool, thanks for confirming.
So now I know which profile caps I need to complete it :)

A bit of necromancy: which boards had R0 (or F-row) profile top row (like modern GMK Carbon R2)?

Very few, relatively speaking. You'll usually only find it on the absolute oldest, non-standard layout Cherry boards. For example:

G80-0312


G80-0505
250448-0

You'll find more on the Cherry database spreadsheet, look in the pre-1000 section.

Of the full-size G80-3000, the winkeyless had R5, but those with Windows keys have R4 at the bottom.
There are also very few examples of winkeyless boards with R4, for example G81-3100SPBUS.

That g80 is a very interesting keyboard and the set is very nice. It is a shame that the bottom row appears to be engraved and is now worn off

Yeah, it's quite an interesting one. I should probably document it properly sometime soon. It has a real MX lock underneath the Alpha Lock key too, one of the few boards that comes with one.

Some keymodules Cherry OEMed for other manufacturers used it as well. On this board the R0 keys are very thin.

Roughly how much cost does R5 row add to a base kit? For non-Drop quantities but more like normal vendors.

GMK doesn't do quotes on a per-key basis and instead accounts for the kit as a whole, so there's no real "formula" that's known publicly for that to be calculated accurately.

Makes sense, thanks.
