I'm tempted to get one...
Ooh, good shout, better looking, and will save me the bother of buying fancier keycaps (for a while)
Edit: ordered, would have preferred a white backlight over the RGB, but OOS unfortunately.
I have the white backlit version, loving it. Ordered it direct from keychain, came in under a week.
Best guide on doing the basic few mods one should make to their first mechanical keyboard (Keychron K2)? Looking to further reduce noise a bit if possible (Red)
is it hotswappable?
No I don't think so just Gateron
I have a Keychron K4, where should i be looking for replacement keycaps?
For pimping reasons, rather than necessity.
Candykeys are good. Bought a few sets from them before...
Just be aware of delivery times (some are pre-orders rather than in stock) and which sets come with which size / type of modifiers as there really isn't a standard set of keycaps you get.
Hey had no idea this thread existed , thought I would share my recent Keychron K6 build :)
when I ordered it was only available with gateron brown at the time, but I wanted some better linear switches, so I put the gateron brown where they belong - in a box never to be used again - and decided to go for some Tealio V2 from ZealPC.
I went for the hot swap board so it was fairly straight forward, started with adding some foam inside the board:
I then lubed the Tealios with some krytox 205G0 one by one, took me forever, but definitely worth it. Since I was at it I also filmed the switches with some Deskeys switch films.
Then put everything back together while clipping and lubing the stabs
I was still unhappy with the shit stabs provided, so I later on ordered some Durock plate mount stabs, clipped and with a good dose of dielectric grease on the wires, they work great :)
Overall very happy with it now, very satisfying to type on :)
Now I'm excited by the upcoming Q1 later this month....
Will check them out, cheers!
I think I only want a to swap out the numpad, so might trawl for random keys.

Rule 34(b) if you can think of it, LFGSS had a thread for it
makes sense 😂
Could anybody make use of some kailh box brown switches? I've got 100ish that I took out of a keyboard. They were clicky enough for me.
Ordered a K4. How long does delivery normally take?
Mine took just under a week, about a month of so ago.
I got mine from the link in the post at the top of the page and it took a few days
Ordered mine direct from Keychron, probably stupidly. Now showing as shipped. So we'll see.
Mine was direct from Keychron, and was still speedy.
Anyone have a referral link for keychron?
It arrived, but only has the US 2/@ keys. Any sources for UK versions.
"Sorry we do not have keycap set of UK layout.
Please kindly note that keycap set of ISO layout is not compatible for keyboards of US layout. It works with alphabets keys mostly, but not for other keys such as enter, right shift etc. due to layout difference."
I basically just want to swap the current 2@ keycap for 2" and '" for '@
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
