I'm very interested in a TKL case, in case you have some kind of waiting list. :)

It does fit a Pegasus Hoof controller board, though?

It should since it fits a cooler mast QFR.
woah woah slow down these fit QFR's? I so put me on the list

Every time I see an update to this thread I think... is this the day? Is this the day these cases are back in stock? Then I'm sad again :(

Hopefully they are making the tolerance of the gap (where the two halves of the case meet) tighter  :)

Well, I asked about the TKL case and he said, paraphrased, that they didn't have any in stock but were redesigning them this year. I took the opportunity to ask for slightly oversized key cutouts for custom keycaps and slightly oversized controller board space, but didn't hear back.

Highly doubtful...there is no indication that our plates will not fit the new cases. In fact they should. As for Leopolds, or some other brands outside of Filco, we can't definitively say what will fit until we have at least a sample in hand to try. Chances are good that the new batch will fit most TKL's. We will have to see.

What I can say is that the phantom will fit the previous case but the teensy is a little tight.

Good and bad news.

Bad news : The factory didn't even start production. Some issue came up and they didn't let us know until WE asked where the heck our plates were.

Good news : We've moved to the front of the line. We were quoted at "some weeks", which typically mean ~4 weeks. We were also able to add colors: black, gray, silver, blue, red, green, purple, and orange.

do you have any pictures of the purple or silver versions?

I don't see anything about TEX in the description either?   It does look better without that line where the two halves of the case meet.

I managed to get my hands on a new Tex case the other day. I would imagine it's the same ones that MK will be selling soon.

The plates sold by MK do fit inside the case, however, I feel like the case was designed for the Filco plate... possibly the majestouch 2 only. as the case has slots on the top and bottom for the metal tabs to go into to prevent the plate from moving around.

There are no screws to fasten the keyboard's switch plate to the case. The plate sits on a ledge inside the bottom portion of the case. If its flush enough, or has the aforementioned tabs, it won't move. Because the MK plate doesn't have those tabs and is too small... the plate does move around in the case. It may not be a huge problem.. but it is something to keep in mind.

I haven't received all the parts to finish my board yet... but when I do I'll be sure to update everyone on if it was a problem.

Here's some pics:

Whole case.. two pieces.


Pic without the plate... see the notches?

Nice.  Can you take a picture of the case bolted closed?  I'd like to see if they made the tolerances tighter where the two halves of the case meet together.

Also, for people using these for Phantoms.  You could try contacting Leslieann about these https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=45739.15

The plates sold by MK do fit inside the case, however, I feel like the case was designed for the Filco plate... possibly the majestouch 2 only. as the case has slots on the top and bottom for the metal tabs to go into to prevent the plate from moving around.

There are no screws to fasten the keyboard's switch plate to the case. The plate sits on a ledge inside the bottom portion of the case. If its flush enough, or has the aforementioned tabs, it won't move. Because the MK plate doesn't have those tabs and is too small... the plate does move around in the case. It may not be a huge problem.. but it is something to keep in mind.

I haven't received all the parts to finish my board yet... but when I do I'll be sure to update everyone on if it was a problem.

Here's some pics:

Whole case.. two pieces.

is there any molex cable from this pic?

There's a Filco molex cable included... but there's no mini USB port in the new version... There's just a hole for a cable to route through.

I managed to get my hands on a new Tex case the other day. I would imagine it's the same ones that MK will be selling soon.

So it's not a detachable cable design?

Nope. You could get a Male to Female USB dongle and have that connect to the controller and stick out the back. Wouldn't be the prettiest thing but it'd work.

Nice.  Can you take a picture of the case bolted closed?  I'd like to see if they made the tolerances tighter where the two halves of the case meet together.

Also, for people using these for Phantoms.  You could try contacting Leslieann about these https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=45739.15

I forgot to take a pic of it put together. I'll have to do that. I can tell you though.. the tolerances seemed perfect to the human eye. The two pieces fit together and are snug.

Those Phantom adapters look interesting... I wonder if that would allow you to take a Phantom plate and make it have those tabs that stick out. I might have to look into that.

Yes, please post pics when you take some of the front/sides/back of the case  :)  Is there some kind of stress relief plug, or grommet to make that hole for the cable look clean?

As for the Phantom adapters.  She made them so Phantom plates would fit the older Vortex cases,  so they should work the exact same for these.

The area where the cable comes out is basically just a hole. There's a small indentation near the hole where I think they intended it to be a stress relief but I can't see it really working that way. You can kinda see what I'm talking about from my first pic above. Personally I'm not too worried about that... I think it'll still look pretty clean. I'm much more worries about my plate wiggling around in the case while I type. Were the Vortex cases designed like the Tex where it required a plate with the notches sticking out?

Yep, the Vortex case was made for the Filco style plate just like the Tex cases.

That's why those Phantom plate addapters should work.

Got a grey one already.  Definitely in for a black one once restocked.

Only been waiting a whole year for this.  Gonna go back to smashing F5 on the product page now.

I'm worring about quantity. I hope they would not out of stock in a minute.
it would have been better if preorder available.

anyway, are those phantom plate adapters necessary?
I was thinking about insert 3mm sound-proof pad + electrical insulation film between case and my phantom pcb instead of that.
Not Aka"MLG 360 NO SCOPE GET REKT" either.

Are the Purple and Orange expected to be in stock as well? I see those aren't available for pre-order yet.
