    So I built a keyboard

    You should put this in the build log section.... It needs to be shown to the masses.
  2. Its not quite as simple as getting two physical adapters. The 5 pin DIN to PS/2 will work no problem. However, the little adapter that only passively converts PS/2 to USB will not work. You will need an active PS/2 to USB adaptor to convert the signal. http://www.clickykeyboards.com/index.cfm/fa/items.main/parentcat/11298/subcatid/0/id/124184 I used a cheapo $10 one from frys to hook up my wife's Siig Minitouch to her laptop.

    Looking at getting the Ducky 1087

    Also watch out for the version that has the black ALPS. They are the quiet linear version and the general consensus is that they are pretty terrible.

    Cool Cases For 100 - 150 Dollers

    Lian-Li PC-7FN http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112345 Would be my personal choice. Does not have all the bells and whistles like some other cases, but $109 for all-aluminum is just plain awesome.

    Looking at getting the Ducky 1087

    It uses green ALPS which are basically white alps with a softer spring. They are similar to MX blues but have a higher actuation point and have a slighty higher actuation force. The build quality is not quite on par with the rest of the Ducky lineup, but it's not bad. My biggest complaint with mine is that it does not sit flat on my desk. Its not too noticable when typing but I still like to slide a credit card under one of the feet to keep it stable. That being said, I still use it over my Rosewill which is of a much higher quality but uses MX reds. I don't think ALPS get enough recognition in the mechanical keyboard world.

    Keycap Remover

    My paperclips have worked pretty well for me so far.

    What dpi/cpi do you usually have your mouse set to?

    good ol'fashioned non-adjustable 400dpi.

    Case mod poll

    All I got is some holes dremeled out on the motherboard tray.

    Favorite Cherry MX Switch

    I like the green alps that I have. They are kind of like a poor man's MX blues, with a slightly higher actuation force. My wife has white alps which I think are amazing to type on but are a bit of a strain to game on. I think they have an actuation force around 75g which is similar to what MX greens would be. e

    Never Buying From Newegg Again.

    You really can't blame Newegg unless It took them forever to get it to UPS or FedEX. Did you track your shipment? Its possible a mountain pass is closed or there was some other delay. When I had Amazon Prime my 2-day shipping always came about a week late during the winter due to poor weather conditions. I should also add that I need to go pick up a cable from USPS that I ordered from Amazon 3 months ago. So really you can't bash the retailer for something the courier messed up.

    White Keyboards

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823201052 Could get white keycaps with that. The Filco keycaps should be a perfect fit. http://tigerimports.net/sunshop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=13411 I think black with white keycaps would be the best bet. That way you have more flexibility with what you put on your desk if you are trying to color match. A Fractal case with a black and white keyboard would look really good.

    Mousepad Suggestions

    What kind of mouse do you have? Some mice do not play well with certain mousepads. Does the qck not have enough friction? Personally I love the qck with my wheel mouse optical.

    This PC of mine, suggestions?

    Pop open the right hand side panel and rout your cables behind it. Other than that its looking good.

    New CM Quickfire Rapid Stealth... Where are you?

    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=163935I dug up where I saw that and giving it a second over I realized I got a good amount of information wrong. The CM rep was talking about the quickfire pro and trigger, not the rapid. Sorry for the misinformation.

    New CM Quickfire Rapid Stealth... Where are you?

    I think CM made the switch from Costar to some factory in China. That being said, I doubt anybody will notice. It still looks like it retained its solid build quality and the removal of any type of branding certainly won me over. It looks like my Ducky might get replaced sooner than expected.
