I am currently really happy with my rig and the peripherals I use, but I think I would like a better cooling solution with much better cable management options and to have that available to me would be great. The cm 922 haf is actually a great case as far as features go but it isn't my type of case as far as aesthetics go, I prefer corsairs 330r case and fractal midi 2 or r4 I believe that is what is called. So, thanks for checking for me, and have you ever used a topre switch keyboard? I just got mine in and have been using instead of my quickfire rapid with mechanical blue switches(which I really like for a budget price for a good quality keyboards)

I haven't used a Topre board yet, I was planning on getting an FC660C around these holidays, but I ended up impulse buying a Ducky Shine 3 instead because they went for a decent price on Massdrop, I also want to compare the build quality vs my Filco MJ2. tongue.gif

The keycaps had an 'Expected Delivery' of today, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's not today. USPS hasn't updated the tracking since the 17th (big surprise). But, until then, here are a few pictures.

Yes, I daisy chained the OG off of the 2013.

Anyone know of a place with a good selection of custom Cherry keycaps. I'm looking to replace the WASD on my CM quickfire TK. The engraved lettering irritates my finger after a while of holding it down. I'm thinking about replacing it with some blank glowy/translucent caps. Thanks

Also, I noticed on the CM website they say the Quickfire TK with the brown switches has a brown colored steel plate under the keys. Well, mine is white. Is this a new revision with the brown plate or a misprint?

The brown switches TK with white plate is a new revision, or the more prominently sold version. There are a few brown plated ones floated around but not seen very much. I myself have the brown switches with white plate.

Also, how did I miss this?! Congrats Para! Shiny new title! biggrin.gif All bow down to the Paddling Editor!

DBEAU There is a place from england that custom wasd keys mostly, qwer depending on what you are looking for and they look really good, and they do them with the transparent legends for back lit mechanical keyboards I believe. So that is an option if you are only looking for WASD to be replaced I think it is worth looking into. I will check it out again and make sure I am not giving you faulty information.

I think I would prefer the brown plate because I think the amount of light bouncing off the white plate and bleeding between the keys detracts from the illuminated characters.

I found it fine when I still had stock caps. But saying that, I had the brightness on minimum most of the time.

I was the exact opposite when I was waiting for my TK to arrive: Not wanting the brown. Black and white peripherals are easier to match with other things and to look at, for me.

I'm now using the MaxKeyboards front printed ones, and they do fit your requirement for "glowy" when the led is on.

How is the Ducky shine 3 ? I have yet to use one, and I use to be into backlit keyboards because of gaming in a more darkened environment, but then I practiced getting better at touch typing and now I know longer find the backlit keyboards appealing to me as much. Which I know plenty of people that touch type that own a ducky shine just because of the cool lighting options. If I was to ever get a backlit keyboard again, I would definitely get a ducky shine 3 tenkeyless. I also suggest maybe when you get the chance to spend the money picking up a Leopold fc660c topre board because I will be honest I came from using both brown and blue mechanical switches and I absolutely love the feel of this keyboard...granted I still have gripes but it is neither about the build quality nor the overall experiences. It has more to do with missing little things such as the on board function to f9 or f12 windows lock option and small things like that, but would I make the same purchased if it strictly coming out of my pocket? hell yes I would, because I feel like this is one of the most enjoyable typing experiences I have every had. I mean the way the tactile bump registers in the very start of the key press is a very different experience compared to you typical brown and clear mechanical switches(these are being used as reference because of the more quiet tactile bump) which the actuation and the tactile feedback happens half way through the key press. I actually prefer the way this switches feedback is in the beginning, but to each his own. I would recommend giving this keyboard a try though., highly recommended biggrin.gif
