Any reviews on the GK61? I did scroll through the sub and saw tons of builds of it, but how is it functionally and is it holding up long term? I don’t plan to build one but here’s the one on amazon I’m looking at:

Also, for those who do own this board, which switches generate the least sound or the softest click? My old kb had blues that were so loud and clicky so I’d love a more subdued click.

Sorry I forgot about the prebuilt part.


Or KEYCHRON k6. My first prebuilt that I customize was a KEYCHRON k8.

I was checkoing this out and it seems GK with optical switches.


Recentlry I have been wanting to get into keyboards and I thought that moding a GK61 would be a good place to start. I have ordered the keyboard with Gateron Optical Brown switches. Can someone tell me If I have everything I need to lube and film it in my cart?







If you guys know of any better products on amazon than what I have listed I would really appreciate advice from people who know what their doing. 😀
