Hi all – two questions:

  1. Are these “true” gateron milky yellows that everyone refers to as “butter on a budget” – THE gat yellow milkys? https://www.amazon.com/Gateron-Keyboard-Dedicated-Suitable-GK61GK64/dp/B08JP84WZL/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=gateron%2Byellow%2Bmilky%2B68&qid=1630867643&s=electronics&sr=1-1-spons&smid=AZWCNI67FBK7N&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzTFVEWk9UOEdSVUNOJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNjQ4NDIxMUUxRUtZR1BPUENXVSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNTY3MjE3SzlWOVdTNzdRVE1VJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ&th=1

if so, is this the cheapest place to buy them?


  1. How do I know if gat milky yellows will fit my keyboard (see link: (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B096X9VM3X/ref=twister_B08G8DPP54?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 ) – it is hot-swappable, but I have heard of some switches not fitting this keyboard due to the bulge of the LED light?

So, I want to put Gateron Yellows in a GK61x, but both of their item descriptions are kinda confusing, and I was wondering if it would actually work. Do regular (not optical) switches work for hotswap in the GK61x? I know the GK61 only has hotswap for optical switches, but does the GK61x have hotswap for just plain mechanical switches like Gateron Yellows? Here are the item links if it helps.
