The keys have a nice textured finish. Almost a little rough but should smooth out over time.




Pretty slick cable routing underneath the keyboard. This should work well with my headset.



The back of the glossy face frame.



Here you can kind of see how the orange piece is removable. More on that in a minute.




Nice thick study metal base for all the keys to attach.



White LED backlit Cherry MX Browns.



Rubber damping O'rings. Can easily be removed.



Decent looking PCB, nothing special.




Here you can see the thickness of the PCB and metal plate.



Okay because I didnt want orange here is how the mod come into play. The orange piece just snaps into place but is also melted there as well. It has little plastic rods that protrude through the holes and they have been melted to the black glossy trim to ensure a good mate. All you need to do is take a knife and chip away the little orange pieces that are melted. They dont adhere to the black part very well and shouldnt be too bad to remove.




Now it just needs a coat of black paint smile.gif



This can also been down to the entire glossy portion as well if you repeat the same process.

Only markings on the PCB I could find. Lots of people where wondering the board maker is the only reason I post these.

The board looks 500x better when that thing is black. Thanks for the breakdown, +rep

Thanks guys! Hope it encourage other people to do it as well! I can see some cool things coming out of this since the large black trim can be removed as well. Could pretty much have any color combo youd like!

Dont know, but as long as it can be painted, I'm good with it. They should make one in all black for the people who don't want to take it apart, for warranty purposes.

Ya the orange is a put off for me for sure. Luckily im happy with my rapid so I can wait a while before I need to look for another mech keyboard. Being an Alabama grad I have an unusual dislike for all things orange though haha.

Thanks

Not really sure. If it relates to the colors shown HERE then they are the hardest.

40A-R 40A (Softer) 0.4mm Blue Softer landing for better shock absorption.

40A-L 40A (Softer) 0.2mm Red Sound reduction with minimal change in feel.

50A-R 50A (Harder) 0.4mm Black Firmer landing for more defined feedback when bottoming out
