I got from a guy on Reddit.
Here’s the Link
Is that a zap cable with mdpcx platinum grey?
How did you mod the fc660c with the 2u novatouch sliders ? Did you drilled the stab housings or replaced with novatouch ones?
I have replaced them with the Novatouch 2u housings and I’m getting a loud clack when I bottom out on Shifts/enter and a little on Backspace. That only happens with GMK /cherry OG keycaps.
I have a Fc980c that I want to mod and I wanna know which method to use to be able to use GMK/Cherry without that pesky sound of the keycap hitting the stabilized key housing…
If you get some teflon/plumbing tape you can put some in the stem of the slider and that should reduce/remove the clacking. Worked like a charm when I did it a few months ago.
HHKB Professional 2, lubed and silenced and I’ve recently put in 60g domes with a hasu controller (bt)
Looks great, also nice to hear of a fellow extreme user LOL! A lot of people think they are just meme domes, but now that mine are broken in I really love the weighting of them. I do prefer heavier switches all around though, 60g is about the lowest weighting I feel comfortable with. Under that I bottom out really hard & it can flare up my carpal tunnel.
I don’t know why but heavy topre switches have that ~oomf~ to them. I really want to put in a 90g dome on like escape or spacebar just to build those finger . 55 is the absolute lowest I can go on any switch since I rest my hand on my keys 55 is barely enough where I can rest without actuating anything.
I agree, while I’m not hugely experienced with Topre I can say the extremes took my 660C from “meh” to “WOW” for me. The stock 45g domes were just too light for me. I could probably get along fine with BKE heavies or 55g domes, but the extremes put my 660C at very comfortable place for me.
Could you please explain again? Or do you have a pic ? Does that mod alter the feel/shorthen the length ? Thanks !
Thanks a lot ! So basically the only way to fix the clack is somehow making the keycap sit higher a little bit. An O-ring also works but that is too thick and makes the keycap unstable on the stem and falls if you press a few times on the edges.
I also want to try one more thing, besides drilling the side holes is to remove the ring notch from the center hole that’s @ the slider point…
I’ll return with the results
certainly the bke extreme are not domes for long work sessions, but for me they represent the experience of topre that I have always sought. there isn’t mx design switches at these levels of tactility.
(Currently waiting for two extra housings for the missing keys).
I have to admit I’ve never tried topre before. Maybe one day I’ll find a norbauer on MM. what should I look out for if buying one?
Lots of money for these overpriced rubberdomes.
Any word on when all-45g 104U/87U boards will be available again?
OMG I love this aesthetic <3
Hopefully I make my NiZ Plum84 look this good!
