  1. is there any wireless mouse with optical switches ... just in case my g305 start double clicking one day, I would but another wireless but would like those optical switches too.
  2. kailh silent box brown for that tactile feeling and that divine silence ... That would be the one I would choose if I ever wanted another tactile set of switches (I have the kailh speed copper) ...
  3. I thought I liked tactile to type on ... but in the end I think I prefer linear ... but the one I got have a bit too long travel distance and I might need to look for a linear speed switch to type on. I had to test them to find out ... and also I found that the keycaps profile matter a lot to me, I prefer dsa over oem. Like the other said it's totally subjective ... Some will tell you that the model M is the ultimate typing keyboard, some like topre ... my sister prefer a really low profile membrane keyboard to type on, but game with mechanical board with outemu blue ...
  4. Shielding is important only if you route the cable through place that could introduce electrical interference. If not it's not important indeed
  5. the best thing to try some switches is a switch tester ... or a barebone and you buy different kind of switches ... the last option can become expensive and even more if you get addicted like I'm starting to be ...
  6. If the ryzen 3 3300x is not that much more expensive and if you can find it I would go for that one instead and if you have some money left you could get a gtx 1660 super or something along those lines.
  7. Which switches do yo have in the first place ?
  8. You can get an old lenovo I3 for cheap (under 100$) and put the i7 3770 in there with a gtx 970 (an rx580 won't work with lenovo) and call it a gaming pc. Be sure the psu is powerful enought tho, you might have to change it. We had 2 lenovo pc built like that and those were quite nice. Here is my gf old pc. Thermals are not great tho even tho we manage to put a front fan behind the skyrim logo.
  9. How much space do you have below the gpu ? Maybe you could try an H500 approach with 2 (or 3) exhaust fan and no intake. If there's enough empty pcie slots it could work but will run on the hottish side. I'm starting to feel that it's one of the good way to make blocked front case work.
  10. The nzxt h500 works better with negative pressure. The fresh air comes from the unused pcie slots below the gpu so an all exhaust config should be better for that case.

  12. I've seen some for sale here and there but I've never had any and never heard the sound of those. Please put your thought about how they sound in here when you are done fixing them. I'm curious.
  13. General rule the longer you need the thicker it needs to be but that's about all there is. With 6' probably a 16 gage would do if you want basics. Shielding is indeed important if the cable runs near things that could do some interference. None if my cables are shielded. When you buy a speaker cable get a nice one, it won't sound better but it will be nice to look at if it's exposed.
  14. I have the redragon k552 which have those outemu blue and they do sound quite loud. Too loud for me to bear with them after a couple of months. The inherent click is not that loud in itself but the sound of the spring ping is really not pleasant and maybe it's the thing that was the most annoying to me. There's also the sound of the bottoming out and the switch coming to it's up position ... those are also loud too. All in all it's probably the loudest switch I tried (haven't tried that many tho). I tried putting them in another board and it was a bit better and quiet so the case had something to do with how loud the sound was. If it's for gaming people will most likely hear them through your microphone. If you're typing a lot maybe it's not the right switch to not annoy people around you.
  15. Oh I didn't knew that ... so they all have like no travel at all before the bump ?
