Venn as in a venn diagram, friend in Norwegian, or a name?

The diagram. It's the intersection between chiwi60 and 7V.

please consider WKL blocker
I'm personally not a fan of wkl blocker on a 65% and it doubles the SKUs for the group buy. The only layouts which I'd consider providing wkl blockers for are 60% and tkl.

that's unfortunate. Thanks for your feedback

Would consider this to pay homage to my first board ever, Chiwi60.

so if i understand it right,your sandwich leaf spring plate means there are gasket strips sandwich the leaf spring
or the leaf spring is sandwiched between top and bottom case, like sandwich mount?
sorry i'm kinda dumb to this

No gaskets. The plate is sandwiched between the top and bottom.
I've added a photo of a disassembled parts at the end of the photos section.

Auugghh, I think I need to change my-

Joke aside, what a great design! You've done it again, Gok! The non-invasive angled edges on the top case to reduce the chance of hitting your thumbs on them when aggressively pressing spacebar is great! The rounded corners creates an unique look with the edges when light shine on it. Then the gap between the weight and the case is the cherry on top. Not to mention the area around the usb port, the curves of the weight "highlights" the function of the port and "guides" you to it. Man I love your design language!

Also, if this board comes in navy blue I'm 100% in.

I won't be doing carbon fibre as a plate option.

I'm considering burgundy.

I don't think I will provide this. I have a clear idea of what I want to do with the weight and I don't want to assign any SKUs to an aluminium option.

Venn will provide half plate ?
Possibly. The reason why I'd consider this over more plate material options is that I'd want to get leaf-spring mounting design to a point that I'm happy with but also allow the option for more flex in the alphas.

This would look so good in navy with that multi color weight

The same navy blue that I picked for the 7V is likely to be an option for the Venn.

Really enjoying the large chamfered edges, along with weight design seen from the back it looks gorgeous.  I second those saying a burgundy color way

Will the pcb come with rgb backlighting if not, can it? Also suggesting a dark blue case would be sweet for this
