      it should say


      sowon has posted a new loob update

      sowon vs switches

    4. LukeSavenije


      how much loob do you have?


      sowon: Yes

  2. If it's the same Ducky One 2 Mini as I just googled below, you will need to do FN + Backspace, according to the keycap legends on the side.
  3. My Zeal shipment of 70 Sakurios, 40 Zealios V2, 20 Zilents, and 10 Tealios V2 are expected to arrive tomorrow. It's been a fun ride, Tealios, but unfortunately I want some better bottoming out cushion, and so the Sakurios are the one for me. They're also much quieter so in theory, lubing should make them sound even wetter.


    I really need to start considering options for another keyboard because at this point, I will have 68 Kailh Jades, 68 NovelKeys Creams, and 71 Tealios all loose and waiting to be put inside a board.

      sowon sowiped them sowout.

      "sounds wet" is entirely the last thing I expected to hear about keyboard switches.

      a teal stem travels 

      springs tighten in ecstasy

      the sound of wetness

  4. I'm legally and by definition, 19 years old, but I'm definitely less than 12 on the inside and in the mind.
  5. It might just be a vocal minority as generally, Windows is good for the average user out there, there have been issues but those have since passed and the dust has settled. Windows is an alright OS and I have no complaints.
  6. The best part about this court is that they wouldn't have needed this in the first place if Facebook could just not make the shitty business practises that they have in the past.
  7. This is an Aliaz Silent switch with a 100g spring. You heard me, 100g and it feels as heavy as it sounds.


    As a fan of lightweight linears such as the Gateron Yellow and Tealios with a 62g spring, and also that my switch tester included 4 Aliaz Silents with 60g, 70, 80g, and 100g weights available, I thought I'd give the 100g springed Aliaz Silent a go and lube it for obvious reasons.

    The 100g Aliaz Silent feels like a middle ground between the Gateron Brown and Zealios V2, the bump isn't as sharp and pronounced as the Zealios, but isn't as faint as the Gateron Brown. Additionally, the Aliaz Silent has some pre-travel before the bump, maybe about half-way down but I don't have any force curves to confirm that.

    It has a nice and soft bottom-out and reset as well due to the silencing rubbers. The travel on the keypress feels extremely bumpy though and I don't really like it, at least for the 100g version. The 60g version doesn't suffer from the bumpiness, maybe it's just that I'm not used to heavier switches.

      What I should have read:


      One hundred gram spring

      What I read instead:


      A rated for an actuating force of A HUNDRED TIMES THE FORCE OF GRAVITY spring.


    3. Energycore


      let oneHundredGee;
      if (Energycore = fool) {
      	oneHundredGee = 'a force equal to a hundred times gravity';
      } else {
      	oneHundredGee = 'a hundred grams';
      console.log(`These new switches are rated for ${oneHundredGee}. Isn't that I N T E R E S T I N G?`);

      Took me about 5-6 minutes to write this.

  8. Welcome! Make yourself at home at the many subforums available.
  9. Just to preface, I'm 19, so we're very different generations. I guess what keeps me excited is the amount of things to learn and explore. I've been into the PC game for about 2 years and I'm yet to explore it all, the evolutionary nature of technology keeps me on my feet to learn all about it and dive deeper into it as a hobby. Unfortunately PC hardware gets expensive so I've only been able to watch from the rafters. I think the fact that I have it as a hobby is in itself enough to keep me excited, I love seeing what new ideas and innovations companies come up with, whether it be mobile devices, laptops, desktops, keyboards, peripherals, or in some cases, software.
  10. Online gaming is generally very lenient on bandwidth so that's more than good enough, hell you could probably stream 1080p video with that.
  11. The Zeals win again. I've now put a single Zeal into my spacebar since I prefer the tactile bump at the top of the keypress, gives me such crisp actuation and signification of when I've pressed the spacebar, I don't even bottom out the switch either, that's how much I enjoy feeling the bump.


    The 62g Zealios is probably my favorite ever tactile switch, I love how the bump is right at the top. It's quite a different experience from linear switches. Also yes, my 62g Zeal is obviously lubed, although with Tribosys 3204. I might go in and re-lube it with Krytox 205g0 just so I can have a more satisfying, wet, moist actuation since it feels a little too crisp and sharp for me at the moment and I'd prefer the same feel as I'm getting with my lubed Tealios.


    I'm still a fan of linears, but if I were to change to tactiles, I would switch over to the Zeals without question.



    1. Den-Fi


      I still dislike you for putting them on my radar in the first place.

      I liked it when switches were cheap, lol.

    2. FezBoy


      I agree with den.  I don't even have my browns yet and am considering ordering zealios.  I won't, but I'm considering it.

    3. sowon


      You're welcome to the both of you, @Den-Fi & @FezBoy. :D You're soon going to be stuck in the rabbit hole that is Zeal switches with me. :)



  12. This method is hard for me since the Korean music I listen to rarely comes in CD form. Also sinking $1800 into just music is expensive, that's literally 1.5x the cost of my entire setup, that's my PC and peripherals, and even then some.
  13. I wouldn't want a touchscreen, but it would be nice to have and I wouldn't complain about it, as long as the addition of a touchscreen doesn't hike the price of the laptop in an extortionate way, as well as not conusming a significant amount of battery. There are some times when I get tired of using the trackpads in times where I don't have a mouse available, and in those times, having a touchscreen would be nice. I keep all my touchscreen devices clean of fingerprints and grease - I'm a clean freak - so I would have no issue with keeping the screen clean in my case.
  14. Chances are if you have to ask if anybody has had any bad experiences with that site, that they're probably shady or sus at the least.
  15. Does your Asus Prime motherboard have an orange LED by default by any chance? The low-end Asus Prime motherboards have an orange-only LED that cannot be changed, and is not RGB. You will only be able to change between static, breathing, and off modes in the BIOS. There is no RGB functionality for the LED strip.
