To make it easier to see the which ones to vote for, here are the 4 keyboards from the poll:







I've decided to make it easier for people to vote and submit nominations, I'd create this thread for you all to post your awesome modded mech boards.

A reminder of the rules for submitting entries and info about the competition in general:
  • Submit entries for keyboard of the month via the form (these entries do not have to be your own boards, they can be any you have seen around the site.
  • You must detail who owns the board, a description of the board and a link to the picture of the board aswell as who you are.
  • At the end of the month I will put up a poll of the 3 most popular boards and you can then vote for the winner.
  • The poll will be closed after a week of voting and the winner will be announced.
  • The winner gets their name immortalised in the OP and gets their board pictured in the OP for that month, I'm also working with some of the staff to try and get some kind of physical prize sorted.


The form to submit your entries:
No more nominations just yet.. (Click to show)

So all those who want a chance to win, post pics of your modded mech board and let's get some competition going. thumb.gif

One of my personal favorites.  KMAC with Cherry MX black.

My modded QuickFire Rapid with MX Blacks. I sanded away the rubberizer and the branding, prepped it, and painted it with Montana Gold 100% Cyan, then sealed it with a coat of clear coat. I replaced the keycaps with white engraved Ducky PBT caps and some Keypop caps.

Here's the subtle version:





And here's how it normally looks:







Obligatory switch shot:
