My System Specs

Default Keyboard Modding Corner

I am pretty sure I have not seen this thread yet. I know some of you have modified your keyboards in one way or another be it paint or lights or etc. Post them here!
To kick it off, here is mine:

Das Keyboard Pro Model S

Ghetto Green switches (MX black springs in MX blue switch to replicate MX Green)
Relocated LEDs shining through translucent case for easier painting.
Cheap home hardware rubberized undercoat to eliminate the miserable exposed glossy black plastic and provide a nice texture!

So lets see the other customized keyboards out there.

I have a Filco Majestouch V1 w/ cherry blues w/ WASD blank keycaps + dampening rings. Currently not in use as I'd like to replace one of the switches. Been kind of lazy.




My backup keyboard is a Steelseries 7G w/ blacks. Also using WASD keycaps. I have some dampening o-rings for it somewhere but not yet installed. Unfortunately a couple of the 7Gs keys are non-standard so I had to use 3 stock keycaps. :(






I also have a Razer Orbweaver, which isn't exactly a a keyboard but it does use mechanical switches. It uses Cherry blues w/ dampening o-rings installed. It looks stock though so no point in posting pics.

FYI if anyone hasn't used dampening o-rings on their mechanicals you should consider them. Blues w/ o-rings is quite a bit less loud than blacks w/ the oriings.

The black springs I used in my blue switches came from my Steelseries 7G. I have not soldered the 7G back together yet though. :P

MacJunky, doesn't the rubberized spray make it really hard to clean?

lowfat, the white caps are sexy!
