This was a client build using the ANODE 60% aluminum case from KBDFans. There wasn't a lot of information online for this case. The client and I took a chance on it. It turned out to be a great sounding top mount case. Most standard 60% tray mount pcb/plates will fit.
We use the red aluminum plate also from KBDFans as well as the Wilba WT-60D pcb. The switches were Durock Speed tactiles and Durock V2 stablizers. I did put a layer of neoprene to reduce the case resonance. The keycaps are from TheKey.Company, the Infinikey Sanctuary Rebirth.
Turned out to be a great 60% and was exactly what the client was looking for.
I had two of these builds as a gaming friend and I both bought into the Boardsource offering of the Mark 65. It's a good hotswap 65% keyboard with good sound and functionality. Also has very classy/nice rgb underglow.
The client build included Durock POM linear switches with Durock V1 stabilizers. The POM switches on FR4 plate produced a very deep clack and great typing experience. I liked it so much that I ended up going with the same Durock POM switches in my version of the Mark65. The last picture below is my build that includes GMK Miami Nights and a few artisans I've collected.
This was a personal build using the KBDfans KBD75v2 kit. The build specs include: v2 Case in black, brass plate, Gazzew U4 Boba silent linears, Durock v1 stabilizers, and GMK Miami Nights. I put sorbothane in the case to make it ultra quiet and absorb any sounds. It's a pleasure to type on.
Although I really do enjoy the typing experience and the build quality, I realized after some time spent on other builds I enjoy the unique sounds that non-silent type switches can provide. I've since moved on from this board to my most recent personal build listed below, the NEO Keys Palette G67.
