I put a bunch of Kailh Box Jades in my Drakken some **** keyboard with SA profile keycaps. It's all right, but it's got really rattly stabilizers and I don't know what I'm going to do with it. Wit hthe SA keycaps, the Box Jades sound like I'm popping little bubbles.

Get some dental picks and shove some dielectric grease in the stab and shove some Teflon grease in the stab sliders

I'm using a DZ60 with Zealios V2 62g, and I have a Corsair K95 with Cherry Speed Silvers.

I plan on replacing the Corsair with a KBD8X MKII with Kailh Speed Silvers. The typing feel is terrible on the Corsair, so I used that as an excuse to buy the MKII.

I got the E-White MKII, and I plan on using GMK Hanguk as the caps. For the DZ60, I'm waiting on CC Zero.

Hand wiring is not that hard for someone who never use soldering iron.

My first ever custom build. Still unfinished but functionality works as expected and serve as my daily driver. Custom 3D printed case, stock kalih box navy (super heavy, tactile, stiff and loud), stock genuine cherry stabs, FC660M keycaps (white) and left over from dead old keyboard (brown).

Nice. Was the plate also 3D printed?

Switched back to a Royal Kludge RC930-87 electro-capacitive today.

Very smooth, but a bit too close to linear and a little too light because of the factory dental banding.

Currently using a razer blackwidow v2 with green switches, lubed with some lube i found in the garage. Stabs are lubed with krytox 205g0 that i got left from a customer build. Though that strange combination it still sounds pretty good for a razer board. Can't wait to build a custom for myself :). (BTW anyone know a place in the Netherlands where you can find vintage boards?)

Whoops, missed this. I bought it used, but it was from Keyhive. The IMK case just went live there if you want a fancy one. It comes with all the stuff you need discounted along with the case

I see! did some reading and got recommended to try low profile for ergonomics, so I changed my mind and will try lp. They had some extras from the gb! How do you like the layout?

A modded out epomaker gk68xs with custom keycap coloring designed at WASD keyboard. Durock switches with special Sprit40 springs (only 30g actuation). Very Happy with how it turned out. Given I could only pick from available colors rather than specify down to the hex value, I think they all work nicely for an "ice" theme. The typing is a pleasure and the split spacebar is nice one in terms of thumb ergonomics for my preferences.

Did the same with the creams I put in my Mahjong (except I swapped springs to 63.5g ones) & have been loving them as well! Sure they are a bit scratchy before they break in, but I found the 205g0 really smoothed that & any stick/slip issues right out.

I'm on a 45g realforce r2. It is so damn quiet that it is disturbing (coming from a person that has used many a topre kb). There is absolutely zero rattle on the stabs and even the thock is minimal. It feels more like my plastic case-mounted HHKBs than a plate-mounted rf.

DasKeyboard Pro w Browns, and HK Gaming Cherry Profile PBT keycaps. No-name brand silicon bump rings. The PBT keycaps are a huuuuge improvement over the stock, super-tall, thin plastic ones; it makes the keyboard. In other news, the old-school beige/tan/teal keycap color combo looks weird as heck on a black Das frame.
