Got some stuff this past week so I put it together. 65% HMKB with good old Alpacas and GMK Klassiker
Okay, time to show the fullsize some love. MT3 WOB keys with Carbon SA extras on Gateron Milky yellows. The board is a Monsgeek M5 fully foamed with tape and force break mods.
Here is another board that was on my Bucket List. This one ticks ALL of the boxes for me, as I love red boards, 65% layouts, and simple, but beautiful designed weights.
(Just in time for Valentine’s Day! )
Imperial Red Kōhaku R2 by SINGAKBD
- Imperial Red anodized CNC’d aluminum case with brass weight under Gorilla Glass
- Hotswap PCB by Wolf ()
- “Leaf spring” Polycarbonate Plate
- Gateron Smoothie linear switches (stock)
- TX AP screw-in stabilizers
- Gasket mounted
- GMK JIS White on Black
- Monokei x SINGAKBD Kōhaku 2.25u Kei cap artisan
- HIBI x GMK Zen Pond koi 1u artisan
While I’m not completely married to the keycaps for this board, they are a placeholder until a few more kits come in that I think may go better. WoB goes with everything, though, right?

Cthulus on PP plate
Surprisingly, these keycaps sound and feel better than GMK does on this specific build. Very nice set by Linworks
Just some touched up cellphone pics. I can’t do my keebs justice like some of ya’ll.
Copper Slag Salvation
GMK Wasabi v2
Custom plate and PCB mill maxed with 7305s
I’m pretty happy with this build, especially now that I finally seem to have defeated the case ping. Put in 1/8 neoprene foam and orings under the pcb (like 1/2 a burger mount), and screws only tight enough to keep the pcb down. Hoping the ping is gone-gone.
Here’s a few photos of my Cycle7 that I built the other day.
I few more photos here.
Got JTK Lofi to go on my S65 v2
Got some pics of signet on my M0110
Instagerm post for more pics
Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight before I dropped it in the snow.
Swapped my 43Studios 4398 over to Oil Kings.
I had to swap the PCB since the first one had some issues. They ship with 120 little foam pads for the PCB, so I ordered a custom set of foam from Green Door Geeks. The plate in here is a custom POM plate also from GDG.
