Nathan Kim, aka Taeha Types, is at the forefront of the custom mechanical keyboard scene. He has found a unique niche that combines bespoke product design with a growing interest in the broader gaming community for high-end, personalized keyboards. Online streaming of his high-priced keyboard builds featuring rare and limited-run components has led to designing custom accessories for some of the top video game players in the world, including Fortnite superstar Turner “Tfue” Tenney. We visited Nathan’s home studio in Corona, CA to talk about this fast-growing online community.

Challenge: can you improve a Vortex Race 3 with MX Silent Reds to get more of the "thock" sound, and how? No desoldering though

@Stefanus Rianto thanks! Yes, the stabs are really not good. What is the best way to lube from the top and what lube to use for this?
Stefanus Rianto
Stefanus Rianto 4 ਮਹੀਨੇ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ
add an EVA foam under the PCB, and I think you can try lube the CMX Pink switch from the top but I don't think it'd be as good as when you desolder it tho. And I think one thing you can't do but really shoud do (since you don't want to desolder anything) is change the Stabilizers to better ones such as GMK screw-in or Durock stabs & obviously lube them as well.
