Welcome to the Group Buy of the Hyper 7 R3.

The Hyper 7 is a 173% keyboard started by Jae, Yiancar, and a couple others. R3 is now live which includes the main PCB with daughterboard, and options for a bent plate case (stainless steel) and option stabiliser set.

Changes from R1/R2:
Moved to three rows on the top daughter-board to closer match the original vision. KLE and allows for normal 2u keycaps with stabilisers.
New plate files. Will now be a sandwich style build with metal feet.
PCBs will be Blue in colour

NOTE: Renders are for display purposes only and do have slight changes to the final items.

1 x PCB with daughter-board Blue (daughter-board has options for 2u as in images, or 1u keycaps) - 125

Bent Plate Case Top and Bottom pieces with angled supports. - 125

30 x Clip in/Screw in GMK Stabilisers - 50

SHIPPING WILL BE CALCULATED SEPARATELY. You will need to pay up to 30 for shipping once we have calculated shipping costs based on weight.

GB SCHEDULE: GB OPEN 25/04/2020 to 09/05/2020.
Around 2 months for production. Shipping should start around early-mid July.

ORDER NOW

Odd question, but are there any plans for a hotwap socket version? This keyboard looks awesome!

Can we get a few more details on the PCB? Controller? USB C? Led support? etc.

No plans for a hotswap version, although you can always install holtites/millmax sockets.

USB C?
mini USB

It will be stainless steel.

With Covid and the slowdown of most places, I'm still waiting on final prototypes for the cases, but I have got 5 final prototype PCB's on the way

GB ended May 8th, so if you're posting about what I think you're posting about, you missed this by a lot more than 6 days...More like 4 months.

If anyone is looking for updates, the official Discord is updated basically weekly with status:

https://discord.gg/ChEtVQ


At the time of this writing, the stainless steel cases have been manufactured and given to Mechboards. However, Mechboards is waiting on PCBs to arrive (already manufactured as well). So, pretty soon!

this is a geekhack rule:

- geekhack.org is a community of keyboard enthusiasts and not simply an advertising platform for keyboard-related sales.  Thus we request that any group buy organizers who post their group buy threads in this section also provide updates in the thread they have started until the conclusion of the group buy, even if updates are also posted somewhere else.  Group buy threads made here are for group buy progress discussion as well as open discussion of any quality control issues.   If a group buy organizer decides to provide an off-site instant message chat option for faster order support (for example Discord), any such communication needs to be optional when it comes to non-sensitive* order information.

What I've been seeing in the discord is that things are all produced and in one location, but Mechboards has been moving office and dealing with that and haven't yet packaged things to go out.

I've been disappointed too at the lack of updates, and wish they'd be putting out more info about what is going on.
