If you’ve held off on silencing on your topre board, I urge you to take the leap. It really is an easy mod, and it makes a world of difference.
I bought the #3 (thin) and installed them last night in my novatouch. HUGE improvement in sound. It sounds almost identical to my stock FC660c low noise board. Actually, it sounds even better, since I lubed the stabilizers while I was at it and I’m using thick MT3 caps. The accurate description would be quite, not silent. There still remains a nice thock like you would expect from topre.
They are super easy to put on, and you don’t have to deal with adhesive like the keyclack ones. I don’t notice any reduction in travel. No binding at all after hours of use. Nothing sticky. These are 5 star rings. Can’t wait until they get their sliders on the market.
I took my novatouch from a 6.5/10 to a 9.75/10. I’m in love all over again.
Also, I did another mod while I was at it. I’ve never seen anyone mention it, but the novatouch slider housings rattle in the steel plate. I didn’t notice it until I had the sliders out. So… I spent 2 hours removing all of the slider housings and added krytox 205g0 around all of the openings on the back of the plate. Reinstalled the housings and no more rattle at all!
Word of caution, you have to be careful not to damage the tabs that hold the slider housings in place. I found the best method was pressing on the tabs (first top, then bottom) with my thumbnail while prying the housing downward from the back of the plate for leverage. This is the only way I found to remove the housings without any damaging tabs that hold them in.
