I have a new keyboard build that uses Zilents v2 67g and every key in it is perfectly quiet yet bumpy. this is a soldered board. With the space bar, I have taken the precaution to lube the screw-in stabs real good and even used the band-aid mod successfully … The space bar is silent on the way down, but the stabs seem to hit on the way back up and that is driving me nuts. Any suggestion for what I can try in order to dampen the stabs?
I usually just put a ton of lube in there
Buffer the impact point:
- Lube the impact point on the stab - easy to apply and replenish later using a brush.
- Use QMX clip on the switch - reduces key travel so the switch will hit before the stab.
Reduce the force of impact:
- Reduce spring weight
- Increase keycap weight by filling it in (heavy foam, epoxy, etc)
- Use a tactile switch with a large bump (like Halo)
