MGK64 Update! - Monochrome
New keycaps, new keycaps! 20x20


KAT Alpha + OEM Fog White Keycap Sets
25x20 BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANKS! 25x20
More importantly, both sets have a 2U Keycap in the R4 row. GK64-compatible. :white_check_mark:



MGK64 - Zealio V2 (Alphanumeric + Modifiers) + Halo Clear (Spacebar) Switches
Hm… I don’t think I ever wrote my thoughts on the Zealios?
I think I avoided saying anything 'cos (IMO) they were sorta… unremarkable. Halo Clears and Hako Royal Clears have a sharper tactile bump, I found. 20x20
Also, Topres. Topres exist. Been spoiled by 'em, and I vastly prefer Topre tactility over whatever soft-ish bump a mechanical switch can offer. :sweat_smile:


MGK64 - Kailh BOX Jade (Alphanumeric + Arrows) + Kailh BOX Navy (Modifiers) Switches
Sooo… Clicky switches go back in! :grin:
Linear Keeb: Eighty #391. Tactile Keeb: R2-968. Clicky Keeb: MGK64.
:ok_hand: :ok_hand: :ok_hand:


KAT Alpha + OEM Fog White Comparison
R0 | R1 | R2 | R3 | R4
KAT has rounded sides and rounded corners that collect into a barely noticeable dip in the keycap’s center.
OEM has standard straight sides and a cylindrical-like dip over the keycap’s surface.


MGK64 + KAT Alpha Keycaps
Reminds me of tofu, kek. 20x20
Like, silken tofu. Deliciously smooth-and-soft-in-your-mouth silken tofu.
Ah, but there’s clickies in there. Keystrokes are more crisp and clean, rather than silky smooth.
Mm. Onomatopoeia. :yum:

For first impressions, I’m quite liking the KAT Alpha keycaps. Comfortable under the fingers, and visually distinct with its curved sides and corners. Not the most accurate description, but they’re kinda like a hybrid between MT3 and OEM?


MT3 vs. KAT vs. OEM Profile Comparison
KAT shares a few similarities with both MT3 and OEM.

Only oddity is the KAT Alpha’s PBT material is considerably smoother compared to every other PBT keyset that I’ve touched (Eighty #391’s EnjoyPBT Blank Black PBT Keycaps, R2-968’s Default PBT Keycaps, MGK64’s Classic Dye-Sublimated PBT Keycaps), to the point where I’m slightly 20x20 whether it’s actually ABS.

In terms of acoustics, currently, I can’t get a firm grasp how the KAT profile affects sound. Mostly because my recording setup’s changed since my last sound sample (Antlion Mod Mic vs. Samsung Galaxy S8+ Phone, lol). Comments might have to wait 'til I swap in those OEM Fog Whites.

Not quite done with sound tests just yet, got some shelf liner to stuff into the case, wanna see if it does anything for the MGK64’s acoustics. :eyes:

…I really do prefer linears, when it comes to a keeb’s typing and auditory experience. But, eh, haven’t been expanding that collection, 'cos it’s kinda difficult to find a reason to justify spending more money on another set of linear switches, when I’ve already got muh Modded Gateron Ink Blacks. :laughing:

As in, “What else does this other linear switch offer that the Gateron Ink Black doesn’t?” Different or super bright colorways aren’t much of a selling factor, you should know by now that 'Chew likes monochrome. 20x20 And while different plastic materials are slightly interesting, I’m not confident that is enough to offer a vastly different experience. :thinking:

MGK64 Update - Sound Dampeners
“Sound Dampening Foam™”. :face_with_monocle:
…They’re just shelf liners. :sweat_smile:

Sound Dampener Build Log


Solid Grip EasyLiner Shelf Liner (Amazon Link)
Bought two 'cos I needed to use up Amazon credits and I wanted free shipping over $25. 20x20
Blah blah blah 'Chew is a sucker for subtle marketing shticks blah blah blah. :laughing:
2 × 20" × 6’ rolls are more than enough for one keeb. Or, like, twenty?


MGK64 - Plate + PCB Disassembled
Reminder that the only things holding this fiberglass plate to the PCB are the switches’ pins.
Also means that there’s a gap waiting to be filled, between the plate and the PCB.
…Brain made me think about cream-filled donuts. Because. Gaps. Filling. Thanks, brain.
…Lewd.


MGK64 - PCB
Screws secure the PCB to the case.
There be a gap here too. :eyes:

Shiny, shapely butt. 20x20

Ah, yes, this keyboard’s mounting plate uses the hm, tray mount.

MGK64 - PCB (Underside) + Kailh Hot-Swap Sockets
Ah, wellp.
So much for the case’s acrylic diffuser thingymabob. Shelf liner completely blocks any light from shining through the PCB’s underside. 20x20


Shelf Liner - Cutting to Size
Top half of the aluminum case is extremely handy for accurate measurements. :+1:


Disassembled Case (Bottom) + Cut Shelf Liner
With the shelf liner cut down to an approximate size, it’s time to mark and punch out those screw holes.
Acrylic slab with it’s pre-cut holes helped lots. :+1:

Sound Samples: Shelf Liner(s) + Modded BOX Heavy Black Switches + KAT Alpha Keycaps + OEM Fog White Keycaps
For the sound tests below, I went with linears (Modded BOX Heavy Blacks) 'cos I wanted to hear bottoming out sounds. Clicky switches would be extremely distracting and probably would drown out any minute acoustical differences between the sound samples, especially with how fast I type.

Oops, Rant

Ah, forgot to keep those excessively IRL thingies from muh LTT post this time. Moooving it over here now… :rofl:

…I was/am also very tired by this point and not in the right mood to do more switch-swapping. Any free time I had these past few days were consumed by shelf liners with a bazjillion holes, streaming HEARTBEAT, BSODs during said stream, BSODs outside of said streams, impromptu late-night Windows reinstallations to fix BSODs, cleaning up game directories/paths, fixing preferences/settings for all muh software stuff, and mildly stressing out over my poor start to the Mid-Week Madness Folding Sprint (still in semi-panik mode over whether I have the correct Passkey or not 20x20).

Update: BSOD’s still happening. Might be a motherboard issue, not Radeon drivers or Streamlabs OBS (not even installed right now). Usually happens when I attempt to run [email protected], I think. Event Viewer gives me BugcheckCode: 292. Gonna update BIOS when I get back home and cross my fingers that it solves the issue. Plan B is to reseat the CPU, but I very much doubt that’ll do anything.

…Now that I think about it, I recall everything was running fine before I updated motherboard stuff through ASUS’s Armoury Crate bloatmalware. 20x20 Armoury Crate is currently not installed on the freshly wiped PC, I really don’t want it to cumdump it’s bloatcrap in my drive. :face_vomiting:

On the plus side, I might have freed up more space on my OS drive. :ok_hand:
Something something small victories and win the battle lose the war. :rofl:

Not to mention I managed to somehow IDK injure the inside of my right cheek + jaw area, so eating, drinking, and idle mouth movements are a biiit of a pain. Also uncertain whether this persistent minor headache I’ve got is due to stressing over Hoshī, the cheek-jaw injury, the warm spring heat that dropped from outta nowhere, the side-effects from the second vaccine shot I received yesterday, or a wonderfully pleasant blend of all the above.

No. Biggie. Smalls.
'Chew iz 'kay. Iz 'kay. Just, haven’t been bukkake’d by this many issues in a while, ahaha. :sweat_smile:

Oh, YIL (Yesterday I Learned) the left right part of my face twitches every now and then when I’m under more stress than usual. :slightly_smiling_face::anger:

Comments
Can’t really tell the difference between MGK64 w/o Shelf Liner, MGK64 w/ Bottom Shelf Liner, and MGK64 w/Both Shelf Liners. But keystrokes do sound a teeny weeny bit less echo-y with more shelf liners, I think? Er, if there is another audible difference, my ears don’t pick 'em up. 20x20

Difference between OEMs and KATs are easier to pick apart. Still prefer the sound of those good ol’ thocky OEMs over the KATs. :kissing_heart::ok_hand:


Very-Random-But-Still-Keeb-Related
The Discord channel mini-project will probably be put on indefinite hold for now. Wanted to consolidate all my keeb Discord news (especially discounts, promos, and giveaways 20x20) to one server, but: one, Discord has a limit of 50 servers to one account, and not every Discord server has announcements set up correctly (or relevantly 20x20). Thought of writing up a Discord bot to handle the latter, but erm, would need to invest more time into learning Python, and I’m beginning to doubt whether it’s even possible*. 20x20

Asterisk(*): Possible as in, whether a bot could copy and paste messages from another server’s channel into my own without having the bot join the other server. Kinda sounds more like it breaks some TOS somewhere, lol. :sweat_smile:

Plus, I’ve got too many irons in the fire right now.

MGK64 Update - Case, Stem, Spring Swaps!

  • Note: Sound samples with Gazzew/Outemu Silent Linear Stems are absurdly quiet! Would recommend listening to them in a quiet environment.
  • ごめんなさい!: Long post because .MP4s, and they don’t seem to embed within a spoiler? Dumped the sound samples at the tailend of the post, after the Final Verdict. Many sorrys if it seems disorganized! :bowing_man:

Tofu60 Aluminum Case Swippity Swap!


MGK64 + KBDfans Tofu60 Aluminum Case (Black)
Case is weighty, has a nice and solid heft. :eyes:
Indent in the butt is probs for room for other electronics bits, or PCB compatibility? Not really needed for GK64 PCBs, stuffed the gap with more shelf liner.


MGK64 - “3 Layers” Aluminum Case
The main reason I bought a new case. USB Type-C port is skewed towards the right.
Case’s frame gets in the way of connecting cables to the keeb. 20x20
I’d have taken a dremel to the hole if I had a dremel lying around. 20x20

Switch Modding - Modded Silent L7 Switches
Pippity pop, open up the switch’s top?

Additional Comments 20x20

  • L7 Switch Top Wobble: Noticed that Durock L7 housings don’t sit as tightly together as Gateron Inks. Throwing in some Deskeys Switch Films between the switch’s housings alleviated the L7’s housing wobble. :+1:
  • L7 Housing + Gazzew/Outemu Silent Linear Stem Wobble: Again, not as tight as Gateron Inks. Tolerances between the Durock/JWK housings and Gazzew stems are… a bit wobbly, but adequate, for me, at least. Less noticeable once keycaps are on.
  • Silent Stems: Cushioning those stems with rubber dampers makes a significant difference. Keystrokes are very muted, especially on the upstroke! Also, sound samples below suggest the Gazzew/Outemu Silent Stems are waaay more quiet than the Gateron Silent Ink Blacks, regardless of spring weight. Personal preference, I prefer the sound of the Silent L7s over Silent Ink Blacks.
  • Two Stage Long Springs : To my fingers, the difference between the Two Stage Long Springs (TS-150g) and regular Stainless Steel Springs (150g) are somewhat marginal? TS-150g feels a bit heavier than regular 150g, and the upstroke with TS-150g is slightly more aggressive. Theoretically, with the TS-150g, keystrokes should gradually feel more resistant as they draw closer towards the bottom, buuut… something something 150g and I can’t detect that minute sensation. 20x20
  • Lubrication : Ah, hmm… Something felt very off while typing with both the Silent L7s and the Silent Ink Blacks, mebbe it’s 'cos they weren’t lubed? I intentionally did not lube them for first impressions, 'cos I wanted, uh, first impressions, lol. Especially for the Modded Silent L7s. Also, wanted to only touch up a switch + stem + spring combination I felt confidently comfortable with. Gotta ration that lube, y’know? :eyes::sweat_drops:

Final Verdict!
[Drum roll–]
[Kicks drum away.]
Ain’t no one got time for that. 20x20

Found a liking for the Modded Silent L7 (TS-150g), out of the modded combinations I went through. Sooo, went ahead and lubed + filmed up those 99 × Silent L7s (TS-150g), then popped 'em into muh Eighty #391. 20x20

…Yes, 99, and not 100, because I mangled 6 × Modded Ink Blacks (150g) while ripping them out of Eighty #391, and I was literally one switch film short of 100 × Modded Silent L7s. 20x20

(Er, technically still have a sheet of 20 × Deskeys Switch Films that is still in mint condition, but… I’m not touching that sheet for one unmodded switch. Because. My. OCD. Is. Stupid. 20x20 'sides, 99 is plenty enough for a TKL. 20x20)

Eighty #391 Update in the next couple’a days or so, when I can find pockets of time to shirk work I mean, divert a portion of my attention towards a productive, invigorating, and not-wholly-officially-sanctioned break. 20x20

Took off a keycap and my eyes were like: 20x20 :bangbang:
Switches are suuuper lightweight, a tiny bit scratchy as well. Nice, thocky sound when paired with the NK65. Colorway is distinct enough that I recognized it on first glance.
Stabilizers, tho, were a surprise! Didn’t expect them in Milkshake colorway. Apparently they’re NovelKeys’ own brand o’ stabs? 20x20

Took me by total surprise, 'cos the last I heard, they had a Leopold w/Cherry MX Silent Red switches.
