  1. The kemove shadow and snowfox are pretty cheap and hotswappable. The build quality is pretty high as well. Swap the switches out for silent switches and you're set. Plus its bluetooth, may not be super important to you, but it is one less cable to drag around in class.
  2. For me it is less of a size issue and more that the height of the g604 puts my wrist at a weird angle. I find the triathlon much more comfortable. The g604 was in stock when I needed it and I dont have much bad to say about it other than it is too tall for me, and the software is a royal pain to save your settings to the on board memory. For keyboard consider ordering a switch sampler and see what you like. If I reccomend a keyboard its gonna be something hotswappable with tactile switches because that is my preference. Maybe look at the gmmk or the kemove shadow. Both should be av
  3. It sounds like you are trying to make your setup more ergonomic and minimize stress on yourself. Personally the biggest improvements to my setup were going to a 60 percent keyboard so that my mouse is in a more natural position on the desk. I still use a numpad, but it it located above my mouse. Changing your layout will change the comfort level alot. As for mouse and keyboard they are so subjective. I have the g604 right now. Personally I think it is too tall and the side buttons are uncomfortable. I constantly hit them with my thumb. Your experience will v
  4. Looks like plate mounted stabilizers. You should only have to desolder the spacebar switch to repair it. There are plenty of videos on youtube that show how to repair it.
  5. The razer has it's own handful of setbacks. Between synapse and not having true onboard profiles it is pretty much worthless if you use multiple machines.
  6. Not much that hasn't been said already, but feel them for yourself, and dont limit yourself to cherry. Personally I cant stand typing on mx reds, I would rather use a cheap membrane board than get stuck with cherry mx reds.
  7. What keyboard is that? If they're plate mounted stabs you just need to remove/desolder the spacebar switch, then replace the stabiliser, resolder or replace that switch and move on.
  8. Seriously look at the reviews on just about any modern gaming laptop and you'll have your answer. My experience has been that they are extremely prone to failure. You really aren't going to be able to "work on it" short of maybe a ram upgrade or a storage upgrade. You are still going to want everything you have for a tower if you hope to get a passable gaming experience. Monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset. They aren't really convenient. The overwhelming majority of gaming laptops neither game well or laptop well.
  9. The board probably has outemu blues in it, they aren't worth cleaning. Just buy a set of switches that you like, desolder the old and solder in the new switches and enjoy a like new board.
  10. What cooling issue are you hoping to solve by swapping motherboards?
  11. Look at the kemove snowfox. Hotswappable, nice default layout, full rgb control, decent keycaps, very nice stabilizers, bluetooth and wired. It runs a few bucks more than the rk61.
  12. If you can go up to a store and see what fits your hand. I'm using a g604 right now, and it is a bit too big for my hands, but it was what was in stock at the time. It is still kind of hard to find a good mouse in stock.
  13. You could try a wireless usb extender, looks like they run 75-300ish. Most likely it isnt going to work as well as you would like. You can get proper wireless controllers cheaper and easier than trying to make this project work.
  14. Check out the kemove shadow. It is bluetooth, under budget and has very nice build quality for the price.
  15. I've been kind of looking at doing the same. I dont think there is a great one stop shop, and standard full size layouts are much harder to find parts for. You might spend some time looking at the mechanical keyboards subreddit, and watch some videos from taekeyboards and taeha types to find some good vendors and find out what is being sold right now. The overwhelming majority of stuff I am finding is being sold through group buys, which are frustrating to say the least. On the off chance you find something you like, the group buy is always over or the item is out of stock.
  16. The only reason I have one is it was the cheapest mousepad the store I was at had in stock at the time and I needed a mousepad. Still not overly fond of it. After a year the thing still doesnt lay flat, and I have a much nicer looking mousepad now.
  17. I cant say I am super happy with the looks of them, and they are expensive, but if you are looking for a wireless gaming mouse they are at least the most functional line up out right now. I would definitely download the synapse software and take a look at it before committing to buying a mouse that relies on it. It really is pretty horrible.
  18. It looks like they would both need the power supply upgraded if you intended to add a gpu. Just my experience, but I would go with the hp. The aftermarket dell adapters work sometimes, dont others. They use proprietary connectors in everything making it an absolute nightmare if you wanted to try and use the motherboard in a different case. One thing that absolutely drives me nuts is the fan speed errors if you use aftermarket fans.
  19. I tried to get a chair online, regretted it the second I sat in it. Do not get a chair without sitting in it first. For budget ergo chairs you might look into the quantum 9000 and the workpro 12000 if you have an officedepot near you. The hyken mesh chair if you have a staples near you. I would definitely check the used market to see if you can find a used aeron or steelcase leap. Sometimes you can find one in the 300-400 price range used. Preferably from a used office furniture store.
  20. If this matters to you, alot of the features on the razer mice rely on their horrible synapse software. You have to have it installed on every machine you use the mouse on if you want all features to work, or you just dont want to look at the default rainbow puke setting. Even if the mouse you get supports onboard profiles, they dont do anything unless synapse is installed in my experience. This makes all of the razer mice a no go for me right now as I cannot use them at work. I switched to logitech, and ghub has it's own issues, but once you figure out how to get your profile sav
  21. An hdmi splitter is going to show the same image on both displays. If you want the displays to be mirrored then you should be golden. If you want the displays to be independent or expanded then as far as I know you will need to get a dual display kvm.
  22. Why not just get a usb hub with individual switches? You can turn each peripheral off as needed. They work fine, just make sure not to but the cheapest one.
  23. I'm very fond of my kemove shadow. Bluetooth wireless, tons of rgb options, hotswappable, comes with your choice of gateron switch, stabilizers are decent quality and pre lubed which is pretty rare for something this cheap, and the keycaps are pretty nice.
