    Gegger reacted to sowon for a blog entry, Zeal Zilent V2 - Zealios V2 With Pillows!   
    The Blue ZIlent V2 is a silent tactile switch offered by ZealPC, the same vendor who has created other famous switches such as the Zealios V2, Tealios V2, and the Healios. This time around, Zeal has created the Zilents V2 which was made to compete with the MX Clear.
    The Zilents V2 are offered in 62g, 65g, 67g, and 78g weights, similar to its brother, the Zealios V2, which are also offered in those four weights, and additionally in four colors, with a progressively darker stem color with each weight option. I've personally chosen 65g as I own 62g Sakurios which I find a touch too light and 67g Tealios which are near the peak of my weight preference, so 65g was the middle ground in my weight taste. In my testing, I've compared the Zilent V2 to both 62g and 78g Zealios, and here's what I think.
     
    Starting off with the stem, the color comes extremely close to the Tealios, the Zilents are more blue in hue than the Tealios, where the Tealios take on a more turquoise saturation key. The stems of the Zilent V2 are smooth and definitely up to the standard of other Zeal boutique stems, made of ultra smooth plastic and it shows in the feel of the switch. This time around, there are silencing rubbers similar to those found in the Healios and its recolors the Sakurios & Roselios, three more of ZealPC's silent switch offerings. These silencing rubbers are excellent and provide a soft, pillowy bottom-out on keypress as well as dampen the impact on the way back up as well.
    These silencing rubbers also obviously make the switch a lot quieter as well, they slice about half of the sound profile of the Zealios V2, which is what the switch is designed after.
     

     
    Pictured below on the left is a 78g Zealios V2, and on the right is the 65g Zilent V2 that I have been analysing. They share the same stem leg design as well as the same stem slider design, only on the Zilent, the bottom and top of the sliders are lined with rubber instead of the traditional plastic. These are the defining characteristics of the Zilents V2 which is why I often refer to these as silent Zealios.
     

     
    The leaf inside both of these switches housings also remain identical to the human eye, with the legs of the contacts being highly protruded to promote that crisp and sharp tactile bump.
     

     
    The Zilents V2 inherit the same traits as the Zealios V2, having a defined, sharp, crisp bump at the top of the keypress, much sharper than that of an MX Clear or MX Brown. This combined with the silencing rubber to soften the bottom-out and upstroke impact, this switch is an excellent choice for those that find the Zealios V2 to be too forceful with bottom-out and upstroke, as well as find the Zealios to be too loud for a tactile switch.
     
    The ZIlents V2 are a modified switch done right, keeping all the traits of the Zealios V2 but improving them to target the market who want a silent variant.
     
    To read my review on the Zealios V2 where I go in-depth about the actuation and design of the switch similar in fashion to how I reviewed the Zilents V2, you can read below where I have linked my original Zealios V2 review.

    Gegger reacted to GOTSpectrum for a blog entry, Award Ceremony - Factual Correction   
    Well guys, 
     
    It seems that due to an error on my part with the datasheet we have managed to omit all who hit the minimum requirements who had less than 1 million points. So, here are the list of the guys who hit the requirements but were omitted due to a simple error in the IF statement. In order to make sure that you guys haven't missed out on any giveaways we are planning to use any unclaimed prizes to be raffled to you guys. I hope this makes things right, as always we will endeavour to ensure this is not repeated for future events. 
     
    The event badges have already been handed out to you guys, I will also be added you to the original award ceremony too to ensure you get the recognition required. 
     
     
    Happy Folding,

    Gegger reacted to GOTSpectrum for a blog entry, Award Ceremony 2019!   
    Well guys, my oh my has it been a month of pure excitement and an unexpected plot twist, the king has been dethroned!!!
     
    But before we get into it I just want to say a few things, first and foremost, I want to thank the guys who have been helping behind the scenes, @Gorgon for his exceptional data handling and filling in for blog posts, @palespartan for being my rival giving a helping hand with data validation, prize allocation and a blog post or two and @Imbellis for validation and giving us a secondary source of point data. You guys really have been lifesavers this event and without you I honestly don't think the event would have ran at all as I would have needed to throw in the towel with all the hospital trips. 
     
    I want to thank every one of who participated, no matter if you made 3 points(yes, somehow that was a thing, I even validated it myself) or if you made over 800m *cough* @Yggdrasil128 *cough*, you really are all beautiful, amazing people. I also want to give a special thanks to you all for standing by me despite all the hospital trips and unavailability, I really appreciated all the warm messages I received wishing my partner good health, it will surly be needed over the coming months and possibly years. 
     
    Competition was stiff this year, with not only the highest number of sign ups for any folding event here on the forum but also some of the most impressive folding I've ever seen, period. You guys have rocked it hard and you should all be proud for what we accomplished. 17,933,433,473 points over the course of the event and moving from 10th place to 8th, but the science is not over and the folding must continue. 
     
    Roughly, if team LTT was measured on the top500 list of supercomputers we would have found ourselves somewhere around 70-75th, just think about that for a moment...
     
    Please can all make sure we donate a few dollars to Jason over at EOC, his servers must have taken a beating with all the traffic we have thrown at the guy over the last month or so. You can either use this PayPal link or find the PayPal donation button on the EOC Website on the right. Don't forget to include a note thanking him so he knows its from team LTT. 
     
    List of the dead
     
    It is a sad time when we see the demise of our hardware, even sadder when that hardware holding out a few more days or weeks would have secured up a better position.

    Rest In Piece Valiant hardware, there is a special place in silicon heaven(Red Dwarf Reference right there) for you, least we forget. 
     
    And now, without further delay, here are the final, verified ranks and prize winners. 
     
    In first place we have @Yggdrasil128, with 886,386,763 points over the course of the event. Mr. Drasil, now crowned the new king of folding for team LTT, really surprised us all, laying low for much of the event before making a dash to the top with his mercenary armies rented folding power, we don't mind how you get your points as long as you get them under your name. You truly deserve to sit in this spot, your prize os to have the bragging rights for the next 11 months, All Hail The King of Folding, 2019!
     
    In second place we have the dethroned kind, @Den-Fi with 660,756,810, you really pushed hard towards the end of the month, but with some sandbagging at the start it has to be asked if you could have taken the crown, that is something we will never know. But, hear this, there is no shame here, for we are all winners when it comes to folding, as we fold, FOR SCIENCE!
     
    In third place we have @Gorgon with 520,575,343 an impressive number, our very own Gorgon showing that we are all in it full tilt, even if we are consumed by crashing google sheets and failing giant IF statements. He was up there right from the start and really took the fight to the dethroned king, a real man of the people. 
     
    In 4th place we have @miker07 with 438,025,030, a fine effort from the folding month veteran. 
     
    in 5th place we have @catawalks with 415,533,572, if only he pushed that little more he could have taken 4th. 
     
    6. @_Rlocke with 221,628,810.
     
    7. @JB25304 with 212,774,860.
     
    8. @leadeater with 202,564,470.
     
    9. @Favebook with 191,299,492.
     
    10. @GOTSpectrum with 186,742,539.
     
     
    If you don't see your name on the list above you either did not sign up for this event or you did not meet the minimum requirements. All event badges will be handed out without any intervention needed from you guys, PLEASE DO NOT message me or the team about event badges. 
     
    Now it is time for the prizes!
     
    I was planning to tag each winner but due to the number of prizes and limitation I have recently been made aware of the winning ranks will be listed here and the winners will be tagged in comments to this post. This will ensure all winners get a notification for the tag. 
     
    The winners will have 7 working days from the publication of this post to claim the prize, if the prize goes unclaimed it will be raffled again. In order to claim the Prize you will need to PM me here on the forum, with the subject
     
    'I am here to claim what is rightfully mine!'

    EDIT: In all the excitement, I forgot to add my two little announcements... 
     
    The first is, the billion point badge is now here!
     
      1 billion points, Diamond Badge - 'When you have contributed more than 1 Billion points, Tales of your folding adventures will be whispered through the ages, You are now mythical.'
     
    The second is that, It has been decided that new leadership for the folding team could reinvigorate the team, well I can tell you that I have accepted to take over the leadership role from @Whiskers!

    With only five days left in the Competition things are heating up and there's some jockeying going on as Folders vie for coveted positions in the top 10 and top 25 for bragging rights and others put in a final push attempting to break into the Top 100 for more chances at the the loot being offered this year.  
    At 100th with 32 Million points we have @Self_Ignition but will they live up to their handle and burn up under the strain? @Xoggy is close behind but @Szah @shp and @StaffCorporal are also in the game. @Ithanul is at 112th with 30 Million points and is still in the race but it looks like @Spotty is  pooped out from all the exercise and is having a nap.
     
    The team has produced 12.7 Billion points so far and if we can keep up this pace we may take 8th spot before the Competition ends.

    Well Ladles and Gentlespoons, 
     
    The fight for the top spot has gone from standard folding to full on nuclear warfare, With the king bringing in over 36 million points, but @Yggdrasil128 is blowing him outta the water with just over 41 million points, if he was a team of his own he would be 11th in the world. This is very much a real clash of the titans, but who can pull out all the stops and play that organ at full power... only time will tell. 
     
    @SynapseBreak is looking to be making a break for the top 100 with that level of production, as is @suchamoneypit, @Takmikill and @Isotype.

    Well it really has to be said, the guys at the top are pulling off the gloves and are going at it bare-knuckle.
     
    I'm not going to be going through stats and the like as you can see them for yourselves and the truth is I am very much thoroughly drained from yet another night at the hospital, it's good to be home though. I just want to give you all a big thank you for the level of dedication and commitment you are showing to the cause. 
     
    We have the chance to make a real difference here, slowly, unit by unit, frame by frame, and everyone of you should feel pride in what we are doing, in the name of science and the betterment of human-kind.

    Evening everyone. With the event still going strong we have just over 2 weeks left in the event and an estimate of 2.2 weeks to take the 8th spot on the overall list. But I personally think with a little elbow grease we can get it done before then so all steam ahead. But into the inter team battling:
     
    in now first with a commanding amount of PPD (almost 30 million) is our king @Den-Fi with 361.2 million points. Having taken 2nd place a couple of days ago we now have @Yggdrasil128 with 337 million and he will stay there assuming that @Den-Fican keep up this insane amount of production. In 3rd now is @Gorgon with 322.2 million and seeming safe in that spot as well. Now that the big 3 are out of the way lets shift down the sheet a bit and see what other battles are happening.
     
    In 50th we have @ladd134 with 33.6 million but is being very closely trailed by @ossi120 who is less than 200k behind with a good amount more production but even after @ladd134 gets passed he will have to battle it out with @Stormseeker9 who seems to have just a slight amount more production and is only 400k back from that 50th spot right now should be fun to see how that battle turns out in the next couple of days.
     
    And moving further down the battle for 100th continues as @mparker42 holds the spot currently but with their production numbers will actually be moving up soon leaving @v.zollner to have to battle it out with a bunch of people since the difference between 99th and 112th is less than 1.4 million but the major contenders bassed on their production are @SynapseBreak @Gorillix and @shp based on their production.
     
     
    But overall with the top 10 all but set in stone with their places the races for the everyone else are starting to heat up. Especially as people learn more about cloud computing and start using it to their advantage. So what will happen next? will we look at even lower battles? will we tag your name for seemingly no reason at all? am I running out of interesting things to say to keep you reading? Find it all out and more next time on Dragon Ba... I mean folding month blog post.

    Well hello there ladles and gentlespoons, fancy seeing you folding?
     
    We are now most certainly over the half-way mark, its time to take a look a little further down the table, many of the prizes from ourselves and LMG are aimed at the top 100, so, lets have a look who has a chance to break past the century point!
     
    In 101st we have @mparker42 with 19.4m whos production could see him push past the 100th mark, the same could be said for @VCInventerman with 19.3m, @Psycho-Ben with 19m and a production rate of 2.3m over the last 24 hours, he's really one to watch, @EnderDeath with 18.9m, @Gorillix has a 1.2m production over the last 24 hours. Further down the stack, @ir8munk33 with an impressive 1.9m points over the last 24 hours looks to be setting his sights high, maybe even higher than 100th place. @lorth Sitting in 193rd with 11.3m points over the last 24 hours and @JVK in 198th making 1.6m over the last 24 hours, you guys could really push up the table if you can keep it up!
     
    All in all, you guys have excelled, I'm really just so impressed with your dedication and drive, pat yourselves on the back because its surely needed. 
     
    The top 10 takes 24.32% of the total today, with the top 50 taking 49.11% and the top 100 have 65.61% under their ranks for the last 24 hours.

    Well another day another dollar. As day 18 passes by we are now over the half way point in the event. And at the current production rate its looking like we might take that 8th place spot just before the end of it to add a little cherry to our ice cream Sunday of a folding month. (Sorry if your lactose intolerant). But you're here just for the team stuff so into the dirty stats competition.
     
    In first we still have @Den-Fi with a whopping 290 million points and will soon be the first to 300 million over the competition by tomorrow barely holding onto second we have @Gorgon who holds his place for the last day at 274.8 million since @Yggdrasil128 is only 160k behind still holding that 4th spot is @miker07 with 227.7 million behind them to round out the top 5 we have @catawalks with 182.6 million down in 6th we still have @_Rlocke holding on with 152.1 million. In 7th is still @leadeater with his massive cpu army giving him 106.4 million and @DUW1G1T steadily holding his 8th spot with 86.4 million. and in 9th and 10th we have @GOTSpectrum with 82 million and @Lucky7 with 77.7 million (I guess it really is a lucky number) respectively. But there are challengers on the horizon with @GoatCrasher and @JB25304 having really high production numbers we might see some tom foolery happening in the top 10 pretty soon... But you will have to tune into a future episode of Folding Month Stat Blog to find out...

    Good Morning ladles and gentlespoons,
     
    We are her with yet another update, oh how times are exciting here at folding month 2019!
     
    We have had all the plot twists, a fight for the number one spot continues to be stirring, the top ten is being shuffled more than a deck of cards being readied for blackjack and the best of all, my baby has begun the process of sleeping through the night(for the most part).
     
    So, oh yes, the ranks, I know why you are all here really and its not to listen to be dribbling on. 
     
    The King himself @Den-Fi sits in a preciousness position in first, Followed by @Gorgon, @Yggdrasil128 is in third and is revving his cards on all FPUs making a dash for the top, @miker07 finds himself in fourth place, @catawalks in fifth, @_Rlocke takes 6th, @leadeater, the man with the plan, throwing all the cores at it is quite impressive for a mostly CPU folder, @DUW1G1T takes 8th place, followed by @GOTSpectrum in 9th and @Lucky7 in 10th.
     
    The top 10 can claim 25.19% of todays production, the top 50 takes 48.92% while the top 100 gave us 65.51%.

    Well guys, we have seen some mixing up of the top 20 or so over the last few days, I may have been knocked down a couple of spots but that's great. I love the fact you guys have thrown yourselves at this and we are really making a splash. But, please, remember that Folding needs compute power all year round, so even if you are only hitting it up in the winter months, keep on folding after the event guys, we could all be making a difference. 
     
    I'm not going to be talking about the top 10 as usual, you can see the ranks below and tbh all this back and forthing to the hospital is really draining with a baby about. Instead, just the quick, top 10 - 25.62%, top 50 - 50.21%, and top 100 - 64.71% of the events production. 
     
    I have to say, some of you guys have scary levels of PPD, I know that a couple of you high PPD guys are using cloud computing and/or resources from work, but damn, you all make me so proud!

    Gegger reacted to sowon for a blog entry, Gateron Ink Black - Smooth Like Silk   
    The Gateron Ink Black is essentially a Gateron Black with a transparent, smoky housing and a black stem, and is highly regarded as one of, if not the most smooth MX-style switch on the market, rivaling that of Zeal's Tealios V2, and the Vintage Black.
    The Ink Black is a fairly medium-weighted switch, requiring 60g of force to actuate and 70g of force to completely bottom out. My personal preferred weight for linear switches is anywhere between 62g to 67g so the 60g of actuation force is very welcome.
     
    I personally like to use my linear switches lubed, but the Gateron Ink Black is one of those switches that doesn't require that treatment to be a smooth switch. It's a fantastic switch at stock, and is probably one of three switches that I'd consider using stock, next to the Tealios V2 and the NovelKeys Cream. The Gateron Ink Black is super smooth even without lube.
    With that being said, I still lubed my Gateron Ink Blacks with Tribosys 3204 as I felt that it didn't require thick lube like Krytox 205g0, and it made it even smoother. I did heavily lube my switch, but it did not interfere with the travel, actuation, upstroke, return, or keypress of the switch in any way, and I prefer heavily lubing my linears as it ensures 100% smoothness. Again, not that the Ink Black needed that in the first place, regardless.
     

     
    In my time scouting the switch market, I can find Ink Blacks for around $0.75-$0.80 a switch, which is fairly expensive considering the other offerings on the market, such as regular Gaterons, which can retail for as low as $0.30 a switch. However, I am confident that expending a bit more for the Ink Blacks will work in everybody who is considering a linear switch's favor, as the smoothness - once again, even at stock and unlubed - is rivalled only by the most elite switches such as the Tealios V2 and the Vintage Black - and those go for $1+ per switch each for what I can perceive having using Tealios V2 extensively as minimal improvement.
     
    In fact, since using the Ink Blacks, they've become my top 2 linear switch next to the Tealios who edges it out as a close winner. The Ink Black is smooth in every regard and the spring is really high quality. The spring feels robust and full which gives the Ink Black an ultra satisfying keypress travel. The Tealios on the other hand has a fairly hollow spring which is susceptible to pinging.
     
    If you're in the market for one of, if not the smoothest, linear, MX-style switch on the market for under $1 per switch, you cannot go wrong with the Ink Black. Ultra smooth stem, silky smooth housing, satisfying spring sturdiness, and excellent lubing capability, making it a solid linear switch.
