So, has anyone else noticed this?
Press all the way down on cream switches, then rock your finger from side to side. Crunch crunch? Now try it on a larger key like 1.75u shift or capslock. Even harder crunch crunch? I barely notice it on the alphas when I’m typing, but I often notice it when I hold down a modifier. I can’t tell if it’s the spring crunching or the slider hitting the edges.
Also, these switches are a pain in the ass to use with the metal nutcracker.
1st world problems, i guess.
UPDATE with video (found out it’s hard to pull switches with 1 hand). The main issue seems to be the loose top housings on Cream switches. This can be fixed with switch films/stickers, but they are very hard to fit.
I should also note that lubricating the latches on the top housing seems to also quiet the grinding sound. That might be the best way to go since the films are hard to ft.
