  1. See, when you buy that set of 20 USD stabs from "company" they wind up costing $41 CAD after shipping (real example) It is very, very rare to find all of the stuff you want from the same store, so you wind up paying shipping on basically every single tiny little piece. Stuff adds up really quickly The multi-color ones are also just amazing as stabilizers, and cost the same as any other good stab so why not Loads of em. Alexotos has a Canadian vendor list as well, very helpful Hahaha $400 for a case, I'm drooling. What you'll soon see is that, because
  2. Assuming you meant switches, but yeah. Any cap set will do, getting a fancy name brand usually has more to do with an exclusive colorway and design. Also, are you Canadian? If yes, try to stick with CAN vendors or you'll be paying an extra 20-40% on top of conversion No, but welcome to keebland Stock lube is rarely good after you've tried really nice switches https://www.alexotos.com/keyboard-vendor-list/ YMDK is a great budget brand I just remembered, and there are loads of cheap kits on aliexpress to tinker with https://ymdkey.com/ Eh, we don't have as
  3. Your budget limts you to knockoff caps unfortunately, search around to see what colorways work and then grab a $40 copycat from China. That or get some of the budget proper caps from drop, they have GMK red samurai and now mito on a regular basis for $80 Zeal (in general) is expensive, Cherry isn't great and durock is really solid. C3 equalz and durock cost about the same, (20 usd for the set) and are the same quality but the c3 ones have a lot of color options Yes and no. Many tactile and clicky switches are actually hurt by lubing, so you don't mess with that anyways. Som
  4. What chunk of your budget are you willing to spend on just caps? C3 equalz or Durock Asking this means you do, in fact need help with switches. Some benefit massively from lubing, specifically linears and even more so budget linears Time consuming and requires consistency, not particularly difficult Drop is OK, they aren't #1 bang/buck but pretty easy to work with. A GMMK pro, KBD75 or such would also be worth looking into
  5. If you want a matte black finish, you use matte black spray paint (a matte clear coat will also help)
  6. Do a firestrike run to get another data point
  7. Ignore the mixed metal advice. If you get a full copper/brass loop, a decent coolant and some low maintenance tube a good loop can be used almost indefinitely
  8. 1000D from corsair will definitely provide what you're after
  9. Weird that the article says the 1050 ti never had a successor as the 1650 Ti never existed... But the 1650 Super does exist, and the difference between them is purely semantic
  10. Nvidia has a habit of cherry picking the best silicon for their founders cards, so if it's an FE directly from nvidia that's not bad.
  11. Blah, kinda boring. If this is real, you literally already chose your parts. Just go buy them, build your system like a human being with hands and 0.5 braincells
  12. So, there's actually a very strong counter to your argument. If there isn't a wealth based motive, you get people who are passionate about the subject instead of someone who checks in for the paycheque and cold not give a FUCK about the career. Would you rather have a doctor who is loves making people better and spent years studying a craft that they enjoy, or some dude who barely crawled through med school to get fat stacks of cash? Using the NASA example, plenty of people would still sign up to be an engineer even if there wasn't a financial boon involved, just going for it because they w
  13. Putting on the lense of socialism 👁👁 OK, now thats done, let's discuss. Linus wants to get involved with a cause that has potential to harm the stonks market, using money generated by the surplus value of his employees work. Your problem here is that he shouldn't have taken that monetary value for himself, and that it's hypocritical to acknowledge wealth disparity while also benefiting from it under capitalism. The response is pretty simple - he doesn't have to, and nothing here is morally inconsistent (and therefore hypocritical) because, you know, he's working under the framewo
