Keyboard Mods

Gateron Milky Yellows are lubed with Krytox 205G0 and filmed with Deskeys films.

Everglide platemount stabilizers are holee modded and lubed with Krytox 205G0.

Butyl rubber in bottom of case for sound dampening and weight.

My Thoughts

Not a bad board at all for $35 on Taobao. Nice and thocky.

The AKKO caps are a great deal for the money as well.

I am going to redo the stabilizers. Having built 8 builds after this one, I’ve realized the holee mod is overkill on Durock V2 stabilizers. My current build methodology is to only holee mod the spacebar stabilizers if using Durock or equivalent stabilizers.
