So you can put a GK64 into a Tofu case, but it takes a little extra effort. My GK64 has a carbon fiber plate.
The plate is too big and needs to be shaved down a bit smaller in both the vertical and horizontal dimensions. I used a file to do that, being careful to try and keep the lines straight on the edge of the plate.
Another thing you gotta do is drill some access holes in the plate so that you can get a screwdriver in there to screw the case down using the standard Poker mounting holes. See the plate has built-in standoffs that attach to the PCB with a screw that goes in from the bottom of the PCB. You can sneak the screws in there between the plate and the PCB and use the holes you drilled in the plate to tighten them down.
The other thing I did was find a drill bit the same size as the PCB mount pegs, and run that drill bit through each of the PCB mount pin holes in the PCB. That’s because the GK64 has a flaw where the right-hand PCB mount pin hole in the PCB is blocked on the underside of the PCB by the plastic housing of the hot-swap socket. You can just run a drill bit through there and drill a hole in the plastic hot swap housing, it won’t hurt it.
The switches I used are Revo Whites from Taobao. These are a light and smooth linear almost identical to Gateron milky whites, but with a nicer gold-plated spring that is also quieter.
Glowy, maybe I need some pudding caps here
