That board very likely just has normal Kailh blues. Their crappy product photos make the stem look darker than it really is but not dark enough to be any of the navy variants.

Kailh BOX Navy have an obvious box around the stem and are clearly not what's in that keyboard.
Kailh speed navy have a normal looking stem and are a dark blue. These make more sense for a gaming board, but still unlikely to be in that keyboard.

I have both BOX Navy and Speed Navy and definitely recommend them over normal MX blues or blue clones. Coming from light linears, you might prefer BOX Jade. I don't know of any prebuilt boards that come with BOX thick click switches though.
I little disclaimer with Jades tho, if you do end up getting those (you have to get a switchless keyboard and put them in yourself, the GMMK Barebones for example), because of the light spring and the heavy click bar, some of the switches have trouble returning over the "click tab". So make sure you get a few extra's.

Thanks all. Repped.

Yeah, I wondered about this too and figured as much.

Do either of you know of any sub-$100 boards that have Kailh Box Navys, then?

(My wife is fairly jealous of the Rosewill I'm getting and wants it; I'm sure I'd like it, I saw a few video reviews and it sounds pretty good, but I could possibly give her the K85 thats coming and get a different board that comes with Navys, if one exists)

I assume you still want a full size keyboard? In that case there are no off the shelf options. But you can put a barebones kit together.

You'll need a barebones hot swappable keyboard($65):
https://www.pcgamingrace.com/product...23714123284538

The switches 110pcs($42):
https://novelkeys.xyz/products/novel...=3747938205736

Keycaps($15)(You can choose others as well):
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000210736373.html

Total: $122 including shipping.
A bit over budget, but not bad for a semi custom keyboard. Assembling it shouldn't take more than an hour even if you take your time, everything just clicks into place.

And because its hot-swappable, if you don't end up liking the Navy switches, you can always swap them out for something else.

It's good to get a few extras of any switch.


So far I have been lucky and haven't had any issues with the Jades I have tried, but I do have a barebones GMMK that I use to test switches before committing to soldering them into my other projects.

looks like it's still attached, I've been debating getting the 60% board from them and popping in some Zilents or Tealios (67g variants and lubed). Or just might build my own completely.

Cool. 60% seems to be the board type with the most options around. My fun wont be delivered till later this week.

I've given up on using any Cherry MX switch for years now. Just have no incentive to ever use a Cherry made switch again, from that Company.

Kailh switches shall be the only valued switch for now or even the far future because they are busy producing varying switch designs incorporating new colours, springs and switch bars within their BOX range.

You have to buy a Hot-swap keyboard, so as to install your favourite switch. Have done that for the past 2 years and have never been disappointed with using the new range of BOX Pinks and the latest BOX Crystal Series.
