Not the biggest fan of the thicc bezels but certainly interested for the prospect of getting a board with no shipping charge as a local. That would be different!

Also +1 for non-hotswap option.

We won't have a non-hotswap version this time around. Wilbas WT65-A will fit the case and layout though. You won't be able to screw it into the plate though, and it would just be held in by switches.

Question tho, usually there are different layout options for soldered version right? Since this is hot-swap version only, is it possible to have a stepped caps lock on this one? Still new don't know a lot of stuff.

You wouldn't be able to do different layouts. Our plate will only support one layout as it's meant for hot swaps. It's difficult to support multiple layouts with the hotswap sockets.

Woo that's cloooose! Excited! What will the final colors be?

I wanted to get the purple one. Only if the blue one is a bit lighter, like sky blue or light blue, that's what i'll get. But i really wanted to see the protos first before i decide. Sadly Grey isn't an option. That would be the safest pick.

Still waiting on the prototypes and colour samples to confirm. The new renders are roughly what it should look like when powder coated.

We may end up anodizing the colours instead of powder coating. If we end up going that route MOQ for any one colour is 5 instead of 50.

Bro, do we have final colors? I still need to decide what i'll get. Hopefully something that will fit GMK Phosphorus. As sadly i may have to let go of my Olivia++  :'(

We will do all colours, but it will be likely anodized. The colour will not be exact to the references. The delays on the prototype are because the manufacturers trying to get the anodized colours close.

We are aiming for the 24th of September. That's very dependant on manufacture prototype timing. Right now we are still on track though.

Have you confirmed any other PCB's that may work in the case? I'm fine with the PCB not being able to be screwed on, but would really prefer to have a soldered version with a different layout. Thank you!

EDIT: Just realized, probably not, as they'll need to be compatible with the Unified C3 Daughterboard.

So the WT-65A works. However you'd need a different plate. We won't be offering a plateless option at group buy. We will however be releasing files necessary to make your own plate compatible with the board.

Fantastic board! I filled out both interest checks, asking for blue and white. Just want to let you know I also would really love to see purple thrown in there. I think I'd end up buying one safe color and one more out there color such as purple. Fingers crossed theres no blocker, see you at the group buy :D!

White, Blue and Purple are all top picks for the colours! We will be going with the blocker layout though.

The plate is going to have silicone washers and strips on either side of it. They're relatively soft at 40 Shore A hardness. The washers will be arriving this upcoming week so I hope to try it out then. PCBs are naturally more springy. I'm suspecting it will still be relatively stiff as the force from keystrokes is mostly on the plate. The early prototype had a hollow sound to it. With the redesign that's been eliminated. I'm not sure if that's because of the rubber strips or the changes to the inner cavity. Either way, much happier with it. PCBs should be arriving next week so I'll be able to test it properly then. The brass base also makes it sound a bit deeper, the aluminum base I'm still quite happy with. Bug me again this time next week ;)

So there are prototype photos of the board up. Alexotos, Logan (the other designer) and myself will all be doing separate build streams and sound tests. We will announce those when those dates are decided.

Strange to have all of that thickness and the keycaps still stick up over the top edge, exposing the switch housings underneath.  I would prefer to see the pcb/plate assembly lowered at least a milimeter to hide the switches.

If you're looking at the renders it's because I'm lazy and the plate is mated to the case rather than to the silicone strips. If you're looking at the photos it's because the manufacturer messed up and everything was offset by .6mm. We were also testing some other tolerances with it. The final shouldn't have the switches visible. :thumb:
