No troll, just honestly looking for information.

It's a ton easier to swap out keys when they are in the proper pattern. If it's just a bag you have to sort through to find the key you are putting on.

This, and let's say that you happened to purchase a really nice set of keycaps, but don't have a keyboard to store it on and/or want to keep it on display, I can see this being used for displaying said keycaps!

Makes it super easy to go between one set and another without having to figure out where each keycap goes because it's already in the right spot. I also plan to mix keycap sets in the future, and this would help me visualize inverted designs and such while the main design is already on the actual board. Throwing a bright light behind it also gives you a nice idea of what it will look like with LEDs on. I've used a plastic bag to store my caps in the past while cleaning my board and it was an absolute hell trying to find each key.

Also keeps them all separated and prevents them from scratching eachother up.

Could have just used the cardboard box and cutouts that my max keyboard translucent keycap set came with for storage, but one little mistake with those and your keys go flying everywhere. With this thing they arn't going anywhere even after a drop.

This too. There are also versions without the extra bottom row that would look really nice and clean as a display.

Been a while since I posted in this thread. Been using my F XT as my main keyboard but I also got new keycaps for the SSK so I've been using it a little bit too.


The caps on the SSK are from Unicomp. Brilliant White with black legends for the alphas and Blue printed modifiers.

And especially since people spend good money on some of these, why wouldn't you want to display them? Then again, this is a good excuse to buy another keyboard. ninja.gif

Writing up the review of this bad boy, releasing soon:



Thick aluminum two-piece case, thick PBT plastic, clean design with subtle white lighting. The thing weighs 3 lbs! A 104-key version of this would be a daily driver for me.

Oh man, I wish I could get into keyboards again, but that drive and enthusiasm is simply not there. I am, however, thinking of getting a Topre RGB TKL board when it becomes available (I know Seasonic has released a full-sized version of it), please don't tell me that a TKL version is already available because my wallet would despise you! tongue.gifbiggrin.gif

Rig 1 - Intel i7 3960X | Asus R4E | 16GB Corsair Dom Plat 2133mhz | 2x R9 290X H2O | Seasonic X-1250 | 64bit Win10 Pro
Rig 2 - Intel i7 4770K | ASRock Z87 Extreme6 | 16GB RipJawsX 2133mhz | 2x GTX Titan 6GB | Enermax Max Revo 1500W | 64bit Win10 Pro
Rig 3 - AMD FX8350 | Asus CVF | 16GB RipJawsZ 1600mhz | 2x HD7950 | SilverStone OP1000 | 64bit Win10 HP
Rig 4 - Intel i7 2600K | Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z | 8GB RipJawsZ 1600mhz | 2x GTX670 | Corsair HX1050 | 64bit Win10 HP

I've been looking for that exact thing. Where did you get it? I could use a few.



In other news, GMK Nautilus finally showed up.
