  1. For total budget this will go over but hot-swap PCBs in a 75% layout are hard to find right now. The KBD Bella DIY kit has the features you are looking for and is in stock. https://kbdfans.com/collections/75-diy-kit/products/bella?variant=34248579350667 The GMMK Pro is going to be the best, it has all the features you are looking for and is the best value. However, it's not yet regularly stocked, and it seems that you have to order a separate plate for ISO support or order the ISO version. Either way ordering one could take a few months. https://www.pcgamingrace.com/produ
  2. Correct me if I am wrong but I am pretty sure this was an issue with the older Focus series, was it not? If so this is not an issue with the new GX and GM PSU's. Unless there is an issue with the new GX-series as well that I am not yet aware of?
  3. I also use 2x 140mm fans for intake without needing to remove any part of the PSU shroud.
  4. The GX is a very good PSU (Tier A) and 850w will be perfect. Refer to this list for PSU tiers:
  5. Clicky Switch Round-Up Click Clack THOCK! Intro: The base idea of testing out a bunch of clicky switches is to expand my switch repertoire. Clickys are not my favorite, as I do not particularly like the excessive click noise. I find the click sound already had from a tactile switch is satisfying enough, and for the most part all the clickys I have tried are linears that require very little actuation force, which is already my least favorite switch. This all said there is variation, and trying something different is fun and I can learn along t
  6. For good air coolers: Noctua NH-D15 / D15S, Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro4, Cryorig R1, Scythe FUMA 2, Scythe Ninja 5, Deepcool Assassin III, Deepcool Neptwin. Liquid: Arctic Liquid Freezer II, Corsair H100i / H115i, NZXT Kraken X-series / Z-series, EVGA CLC.
  7. Objectively, very good, somewhat overkill but overall good components and you will get good performance. Don't forget a CPU Cooler!
  8. As far as I know the launch is paper only, none to actually sell.
  9. Looks really nice! I was looking at something similar last year but missed the GB and decided on another route, but the end result looks amazing!
  10. Hey A fellow Chia Farmer! I've gone heavy on this as well! Net space is insane though but a fun project, hopefully you got some coin early on!
  11. Very nice, what case is that? Also, welcome to the bottomless pit!
  12. Kailh Box Jades (Box Thick Click) are pretty decent for a clicky tactile switch, really nice for keycap stability as well. https://novelkeys.xyz/collections/switches/products/novelkeys-x-kailh-box-thick-clicks?variant=3747938238504 https://kbdfans.com/products/novelkeys-x-kailh-box-thick-clicks-navy-jade?_pos=2&_sid=1070f150d&_ss=r
  13. No 'ting' / 'ping' like aluminum, as it is a composite material. FR4 is a good middle ground between polycarbonate, which some people like for its flexible characteristics, but has more rigidity and strength, similar to aluminum, but without the sound characteristics. I have not used Carbon Fibre, but I imagine FR4 would feel similar. That said, I do find that foam or a gasket between the PCB / Switch Plate / Case Back, makes a much more meaningful difference for type feel and mostly sound when comparing solid switch plates (Aluminum/Brass/Copper/Steel etc). As I said
  14. I would say it feels somewhere between polycarbonate and aluminum, stiffer than polycarbonate, and close to the stiffness of Aluminum. But nothing like Brass.
  15. IMO there is not much of a distinguishable difference between Brass and Aluminum (there is some), although I prefer it to polycarbonate by a mile, but this is a personal preference. I do find that foam or a gasket between the PCB / Switch Plate / Case Back, makes a much more meaningful difference for type feel and mostly sound when comparing solid switch plates. This said a backplate like Brass or Copper feels slightly more solid as it minimizes flex, Aluminum is not far off but is not quite as solid. Brass / Copper can feel more harsh if you have light switches that bottom out eas
