So I got the thing built but something when haywire with my pcb and about 4 keys don't work at all and a "column" of keys malfunction when pressed. I'll just order a different 60% pcb and use that. All in all the board looks and feels incredible, I just can't wait to get to use it :D

Sometimes people want to try different layouts. The top-mounted plate and matching PCB are great but you want to try new layouts. I tried to buy another top-mounted plate from Triangle lab. Ramiel arranged it so I can use the DZ60 PCB with it. I had to buy it on Taobao https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=586248649082. I tried but my order was declared invalid and I was refunded. This is the 4th time I try to buy stuff from Taobao but no success yet :( If there is enough interest we should try to buy it as a group? I don't speak Chinese unfortunately and I'm not trying Taobao again.

i thought you have to use a proxy to buy from taobao?  i think superbuy is one of them?

i would double check the soldering you did on the daughterboard.   is this the hotswap PCB or your own tray mount one?  if you take the PCB out of the case and plug directly into the PCB does it still do the same thing?

Unfortunately that isn't the issue. I just tried plugging directly into the pcb after taking it out and the same keys weren't working whereas the others still are. It's random like 6, N, S all don't work. I'm chalking up to a pcb issue for now, thanks for the advice!

It's the hotswap pcb from TriangleLabs, I forgot to add

hi, so i'm a little confused.  this supports EITHER the top mount plate and hotswap PCB OR a bottom mount plate + PCB--which is pretty much any generic GH60 style 60% keyboard.

if you bought the PCB and matching plate, you do not need to use the standoffs at all.  the plate actually screws into the top of the case from the underside.  if you line up the plate on the underside of the top you should see how it bolts in.  this pictures shows it, see how the plate is bolted around the edges to the underside of the top.

What he said. Top mount is the way to go.....

sorry if i missed this, but is that even with no switches mounted?

Yea so like I took the switches off the pcb and plate. Then I just put a single switch on the problem keys and plugged the pcb in. The problem keys weren't working but the ones that were working continued to work.

ah ok, so my guess would be the hotswap sockets are not soldered in all the way.  i would test to see if the pads are sending signals correctly (you can do this by connecting the pads with a set of tweezers), that way you would know the PCB underneath is fine but that the hotswap sockets need to be addressed.  and then i would try adding some solder to the hotswap sockets to get them seated in the pads.  but i know that's a bit of work/know-how so if thats too much, i hope ramiel gets you a new PCB soon!

I'll try the tweezers thing! If it's a hotswap socket issue and not a pcb issue then I can probably figure it out, otherwise Ill snag another 60% pcb.

still kicking myself for missing out on this.
hoping there will be enough demands for a new round...

I'll add +1 to demand. I would love to have one o' these.
