First batch going out in 24 hours, I've attached tracking info on PayPal, let me know if you've paid but not received anything.

Next batch will go out next Tues (GMT+8) given that it's Singapore's National Day this Thurs and I will be going back to Malaysia for the long weekend, not to mention the courier companies won't be working as well :P

For those who still need some time to pay your shipping invoices, please do so before Sat (11 Aug) so that we can have it out by next week  :thumb:

Mine comes tomorrow, getting antsy. That brass plate makes me regret not getting one. Looks great!

Got mine this morning  :-*



flawless, little dusty but easy to clean up. Test everything so far and they all work. Will build mine w/o the diffuser since it's flimsy  :thumb:

Thanks beamingrobot and thesiscamper for the great work and GB experience!  ;D  Album for more pics below:

My keyboard also arrived. I'm happy and sad.

The back LED on the PCBs has a different color.
And the Stepped CapsLock LED does not turn on. Both PCBs are the same.
And there are other small problems.

After seeing the issues above, I tested my PCB and found the same issues with the LEDs. Both the caps lock led and the LEDs on the back are off. I also have 3 backlighting LEDs showing the wrong color. 
Edit: after doing a thorough inspection on the rest of the parts, I found some small defects on the aluminum plate (nothing big, a wavy looking cut and a small chip on one of the holes). There were also some small pits in the anodization but those are only visible on the inside.
Also, there were another set of screws included in the bag, some of the included screws for the main body were different lengths. Am I supposed to use the screws in the bag that are identical?

Mine is working fine as well. No issues with rgb or led lighting. And no defects on both of the plates

Regarding the LEDs, I personally tested all the PCBs and managed to get them to all light up, so it's a bit odd that some of you are having issues?

Try changing the LED colours using bootmapper, and yes the screws included in the bag are recommended.

I tried different colors but there were still 3 LEDs that were different from the rest.

I have seen this happen before when there isn't enough juice getting to the SMDs. See if maybe a pad is loose or something?

Unfortunatly, even if I mapped it as a bootmapper, the color of the back LED of the PCBs is not changed and the Stepped CapsLock LED does not turn on either.

Have you tried changing USB ports/cables etc?

I spent 2 days testing all these functions on all the PCBs and it worked on mine. Please check if you're using a USB hub or not, if you are please connect it directly to the computer.

Even if I connect the PCB to another computer, changing the USB ports/cables does not change.
Of course, the usb hub is not used.

I'm really at a loss at why this would happen, since all of them were fine before I sent them out and I tested it with bootmapper as well.

One of my PCB has the LED issue too, green led won't light up no matter which color I set it to.

Did anyone receive an extra PCB? I ordered an extra but it wasn’t included in my package—perhaps it landed in the wrong parcel. Thanks!
