I know you guys are too much of keyboards connoisseurs for this brand (  ;D ) but i'm looking for the new Corsair K70 Mk. 2 SE with European QWERTZ layout, and I can't seem to find it anywhere. Am I just bad at using the intertubes or you really can't find it anywhere in this version ?

This isn't the SE (aluminium) version.

This is the older version, that you can indeed find everywhere.

Is there a known procedure to make DIY side printed legends on DS ABS key caps? I'd like to make my own side printing to help using alternate custom layers.

Is it possible to clip the stabs once the board's been assembled? (switches soldered with plate)

You'll need to desolder a few switches.
Once you do you'll have enough room to pop the stabilizer wire out of the stabilizer and remove the bit you need to clip.
Reassembly is the reverse.

Alright guys, I need help with a new keyboard. I simply can't find what I'm looking for and I need you to save me from ending up buying a Corsair or something. This is basically what I want:

    - It must ship to Switzerland
    - Full size
    - ISO QWERTZ
    - MX switches (or something super similar)
    - Wood or aluminium case
    - PBT keycaps
    - NO need for crazy showlight
    - I like design. Can be super classy wood design or badass "gaming" design, but I like when the keyboard stands out in a way or another.

Thanks a bunch in advance !

I was curious if anyone with a Leopold FC980M or KUL ES-87 could tell me how big/deep the bottom/front bezel below the spacebar/lower row is (inches or centimeters are fine...just trying to get an idea of the measurements).  I like having a little space between my wrist rest (a 3m gel wrest) and my keyboard as you can see by the rubber spacers between my Ducky Year of the Tiger keyboard and my wrist rest in the pic below:



I've been toying around with getting the FC980M or ES-87 so I could eschew the need for rubber spacers and was curious how deep their bezels were to determine if that would work.

This may be out of place but is it a rare occurrence to find a Chicony KB-5161 with SMK Second generation clicky switches? I just noticed that there aren't any instances of it very many places on the internet. Nice switches, btw.
Current boards-
Daily Driver- IBM Pingmaster (Alps SKCC Greens)
Second fiddle- IBM Model M
Board I carry with me- Kingston HyperX (Cherry MX blues)
Boards I break out on occasion, or for LAN parties
Apple Extended Keyboard II (Alps SKCM Cream)
Chicony KB-5161 (With SMK 2nd generation!)

Not rare at all, in fact I'd say that is the most common switch to find in a 5161. Mitsumi switches are much rarer and Blue Alps are the rarest of all.

Are there any readymade TKL keyboards having Gateron Clear switches that we can buy besides Glorious GMMK?

I don't know if Varmilo still offers boards with them but they used to. I'd sell you mine but about half the switches have died already.

Was the Leopold FC660C discontinued, or something? It's really hard to find, and expensive where I do find it.
