I <3 Mechanical Keyboard


I <3 [URL=https://www.overclock.net/t/538389/mechanical-keyboard-club]Mechanical Keyboard[/URL]










If you're joining the club for the first time:


  • If you are joining with one keyboard, you must submit the form and provide your own picture of it.
  • If you are joining with more than one keyboard, you must submit the form with your own picture of at least one of the boards, preferably all of them if possible.


If you're in the club already:


  • If you want to edit your entry i.e. add or remove boards from your entry, you must submit the form with the list of all the boards you want next to your name not just the new ones. This is because the new copy of the form you submit will overwrite the previous one(s). So for example, if you're currently listed as owning a Ducky Shine 3, but you want to add a WASD V2 to your entry aswell, then you'd submit the form listing the Ducky Shine 3 and WASD V2.


























 The KOTM competition is currently on hold indefinitely until prizing and format changes are addressed.

KOTM Info (Click to show)
Keyboard of the Month is a competition where each month you can submit your votes for the coolest customised keyboards people have modified this month.
How The Competition Works:
  • At the start of the month I create a Keyboard of the Month (KOTM) thread.
  • You can use the dedicated KOTM thread to post pictures of your keyboard that you are entering (optional) and to submit your entry for that month via the Google Docs form.
  • Entries are accepted up until the last week of the month, after which entries for that month are closed.
  • If more than 3 unique valid entries are submitted, then I will then put up a poll in that thread of all the submissions and the poll will stay up for the rest of the month to let people from all over the site vote. If the required number of entries is not met, the KOTM for that month will be cancelled and the KOTM will continue the following month.
  • After the voting closes, I will announce the winner on the first of the following month, their name will be added to the list of winners, a picture of their board put in the Mechanical Keyboard Club OP to show off their work, and they will be able to claim a limited edition OCN Keyboard of the Month keycap that you can see below.



Competition Rules:
  • You must enter your own board, I reserve the right to ask for proof of ownership of any board I think may not belong to you.
  • You can enter as many times as you like per year with one board or different ones.
  • You can win at most three times in a single year, and not two months in a row
  • You can only win once with a given board, if you win twice with a board appearing to be the same, proof of the differences between the two will be required.
  • Only one image will be put up as your entry's poll picture, if you submit two images then I will pick which one.
  • You may change your entry once before the competition starts, any subsequent entries by you for that month will be ignored. Your entry cannot be changed once the poll is up.
  • You can request the poll picture in the KOTM thread be changed once.
  • I reserve the right to permanently exclude any people who's submissions break any of the competition rules or the OCN ToS e.g. submissions clearly meant to advertise.



Tips For Entering:

  • Get inventive: you're unlikely to do well if you're just changing out a few keycaps
  • Provide a good picture: Your picture is what sells your entry to voters, so do your best to make it look good, for some tips see this thread.




How To Claim Your Prize If You Win:


If you win, I will send you a PM requesting the following information:


  • Competition thread link:
  • Prize Won:
  • Full OCN Username:
  • Full Name:
  • Full Address & Post/Zip Code:
  • Tankguys Email Address:   

NOTE: You MUST create a Tankguys account and fill out your shipping info in the account info! If you don't, we cannot ship the prize out to you!

Upon receiving this information, staff will organise your prize to be sent out.


Trying to claim a prize when you haven't won the KOTM competition will get you banned from all future KOTM competitions.

Good luck to all!

With the state of the economy, I don't think Obama can get much much of an overclock. (At least, not quickly) He's on stock cooling.

I'll jump in, I guess. Filco Cherry Brown. I have a few pictures:

And one of the whole desk so you can get an idea of how big the keyboard really is; this is a 5" wide fold-up table.

bump for more owners.

I miss my spring loaded keys...

I wish the Model-M wasn't so heavy, or I would have brought it here.
