Keyboard is great. Good communication through out the group buy process. Back plate came a little scratched but some times it’s luck of the draw and the performance of the board makes up for any discrepancies. I have put in Ink Black v2s, lubed with G-Lube and filmed with Deskeys black films. I added some custom PCB foam too for some extra sound insulation. Overall sound is great. Would recommend!

The CU65 is our take on a custom 65% mechanical keyboard kit.
The case consists of three main parts – a high-profile top case, a bottom plate and a footbar – with all three being crafted using high quality Aluminium. The top case has been milled from a solid Aluminium block and features and integrated plate that supports both ANSI and ISO layouts. Alongside its light weight, the case features filleted edges and rounded corners making it extremely nice and easy to hold when you want to move it.
The footbar is a solid full-length Aluminium bar - it attaches to the base plate (3 x M3 screws) and supports the entire keyboard giving it an eight-degree gradient.
The final piece of the case is the rubber foot that also sits underneath the case (on the edge closest to the user). This foot allows the case to sit comfortably on any typing surface; two rubber feet will be included to allow enthusiasts to use their CU65 with a 0 degree gradient.
There is one PCB; ANSI and ISO will be on the same PCB. Please have a look at the product images to see all of the switch layout options. The CU65 is the first custom PCB in the world to support ISO and ANSI on a hot-swap board!
The PCBs come with QMK loaded onto them. QMK is highly customisable and allows mechanical keyboard enthusiasts to really make their CU65, their CU65. Although the CU65 will come with our firmware loaded, meaning that you can plug in and use, more experienced users still have the option to re-map keys and functions as they see fit via QMK. Please note that the CU65 PCB does not feature any LEDs.
Don’t like soldering? That’s ok, neither do we – that’s why the CU65 features hot-swap sockets underneath each key! Want to try out some new MX style switches? All you have to do is pull your current switches out, and pop your new switches in – yes, it’s that simple.
The PCBs supports PCB and/or screw-in stabilisers.
The kit comes with foam!
