It sounds like maybe you're bottoming out. I'm not sure, but I think the Trigger and the QuickFire line have plate-mounted switches, so you're probably just hearing the echo from that?

It's been converted to USB and made compatible with modern computers. The teensy 2.0 controller is installed internally within the keyboard chasis itself so it looks as if it came stock with USB. I split the cable stress block in half and placed the USB cable in it to maintain the stock look. I also modded the space bar (to require less force to actuate) by bending the spacebar stabilizer, that required dissembling the entire keyboard. On the inside of the keyboard chasis "19/10/84" was written so I'm guessing that's the keyboard's age or at least the top chasis' birthdate.
Waar/demik please add this modded XT to my list of keyboards. Gracias! thumb.gif
^The finished product
^The USB cable placed inside the stock cable stress relief block.

Looks great! I'll have to send you one for you to mod if I ever come across one!

I'll update the list when I get home tonight.

Maybe? I don't know much about it. Whatever it is, it's annoying.

Others say that they accidently press reds while gaming, its a pure matter of taste.
You will surely find people who like the my switches best, but i think most will like pure mechanical more and i understand it, i also like browns and blues (browns over blues, less noise is a nice thing imo:D) but i prefer blacks over reds because i have a hard time not bottoming out without tactile feedback and light switches.

Me too! When I first got it, I kept hitting the macro key for some reason. Hitting in between keys.
However I don't have that problem anymore and after 3 days of usage, it's like i never changed keyboards smile.gif
Just takes time.

As for the Metal Spring sound... not sure what you mean, you should only here the switches. Taking a video of it making the metal spring sound would help a lot.
