Would an XD75 fit in this case? Similar issues with other 60% cases?

Damn can't even decide on which color. I want to get the Everest White but can't think of a keyset to put it on!

Xda oblique maybe good... but that keyset won稚 ship till Nov

Black and White only will looks stunning IMO, like a stormtrooper theme:

GMK Monochrome - still IC
GMK originative / JTK WoB
or just a simple Blank Gateron/PBT

Is it possible to add a brass plate as an option?

Should be able to buy one from kbdfans I think. I bought a 60% brass plate there

There are also some very nice brass plates on keyclack and mekanisk, much higher quality than the kbdfans.

Will check them out. I haven't received mine from kbdfans yet. But I am indeed looking for something higher quality.

Keep in mind that for US buyers, 1Up prices include shipping!

I知 curious as to which brass plate provided by 1up supports arrow clusters? I cannot seem to figure out. Any experience?

That was super helpful! Would you mind sharing some of the possible split spacebar layout which the plate supports? Essentially, I'm just trying to see if I could pair the type A plate from this GB with a different 60% PCB that also supports split spacebar layout (such as YD60 or DZ60).

If I may ask, what's the measurement of the battery slot?  I got a battery which size is 6mm x 36mm. Do you think it will fit?

Do you think you could add a fixed plate for a cleaner look? I知 going for the same layout as in the prototype picture. I think it would be much nicer than a swiss cheese plate.

1) last row cant support split spacebar for type B and Type C

2) enter key cant support ISO for type B and Type C

final goal: All the plates can support split spacebar and iso at same time.

Please DONT change plate C, i dont want ISO support or split space bar. As Choppersuey said, please keep it 'fixed' layout.

Make Plate B the universal plate and keep plate C more standard ANSI.

because anodize cannot make white color, and MAO finish a bit greyish. So we used new craft to create prefect white. For other colors, i think it is good so far:)

hmmm..this early morning i talked to ALF, how about we make a universal 1.5mm thinkness brass plate for all? so it won't affect current alum plate buyers. So far there are no much options for brass plate in the market. We can create one with high quality:

1) 1.5mm thickness brass plate to give strong and stable support.

2) polishing after cnc.

3)Surface passivation treatment to prevent oxidization.(can last at least half of year)

4)of course universal layout with iso and split spacebar and etc.....

ps:we should do this kind of works during IC period. But our purpose is for a better product, Consumer satisfaction and A AWESOME KEYBOARD.

Looks like white is the only option. See another prototype pic from Alf. Took with a cellphone with low light, white balance is likely off a bit, and not a whole lot of detail. High quality pics forthcoming soon.
