I didn't notice it on my AM. But press the FK switches quickly with some force and listen. It doesn't seem to affect me at all and I usually game with headphones on so don't hear it. But it is weird.

Just tried it. Seems normal to me.

Ok, so I was finally able to get the microswitches out. It's been so long that I forgot what a giant pain in the ass it was. The D2F-01F Omrons fit and work perfect. They are too soft for the mouse wheel. I'll probably switch to 7N's for the mouse wheel. My side buttons are coming in mouser and I'll replace the side buttons too. Perfect Starcraft mouse almost achieved ...

those D2F-01F, are they actually easier to click/less distance than the regular ones? the 7ns (and the 7n 10M)?

Can you write a tutorial of some sort for swapping the switches. I'm planning to get either a FK or EC2 eVo and I expect to be swapping switches. If you don't have time, maybe a parts list and few pictures?

Oh, yeah that sounds annoying. Mine doesn't do that.

Distance is about the same. Main difference is operating force. D2F-01F's require less force to actuate and have a "softer" feel which is good for high-apm. I prefer it exclusively for Starcraft. Some say that there is no difference between 7N and 01F's but I beg to differ. Some also think that 01F's are too soft and that 7N's are more tactile. To each their own.

I did a year ago. I did almost the exact same process for my Zowie EC2 Evo and posted it in the thread about changing microswitches (Just search overclock.net for "microswitches"). The process is easier since you don't need to buy triangle screwdrivers to open up the Zowie FK. You will have to jiggle the switches very firmly to get their loose after removing the solder though.

I posted in this thread a while back and mentioned the same problem. I have since then returned the mouse and got a new one that doesn't sound the same. I haven't used this one as much though, so I can't say that it won't happen again, but so far so good.

Awesome! I could only find the "swapping switches for dummies" (http://www.overclock.net/t/1216141/swapping-microswitches-for-dummies) which is for a g400. I don't expect the procedure to be any different, but can you post the link to your ec2 evo swapping goodness? smile.gif Thanks!

edit: found it. It's later in the same thread. Now I can't delete this post frown.gif
