Will this drop ever come back? I want to blue case to match my natalius keykaps :(
Any idea when this drop will be back up? And if the blue case here matches the natalius keykaps?
just got mine. I thought Champagne color would match well with recent PD-white keycaps from picture below, but this time it is more like gold or yellow :(
Received my red case today.
Pros: Impressive fit, perfect anodizing finish and color. Feels solid and heavy, much better than the plastic case.
Cons: 1. The aluminum feet raise the back too high and make the front edge of the case scrape the desk's surface. 2. The supplied white adhesive 3M "feet" pads don't help with the aluminum feet (unless you put them right at the front edge of the case - see picture below. 3. I'll probably need to remove the aluminum feet an just use the 4 white adhesive pads. 4. The supplied adhesive pads should've been black (not white). 5. The original felt pad inside the Leopold case can't be used in the aluminum case (it makes it too thick).
In summary, it's a great case. Don't bother ordering the "feet" - they suck on this case. Pads should be black.

any guide to remove the original case ?

There's only one screw - it's under the "OK" sticker. The case is held together with molded clips all around the bottom edges. I used 4 credit cards - slip them (two on each long side) in-between the outer case edge and bottom base working with the kb upside down. Keep all 4 cards in place as you work to free the corner clips with a small thin bladed screwdriver and it will eventually pop open.
I would definitely get this if they made it for the FC660c.

wait for Norbauer case then in 2018
Hot damn, if they made this case for a 660c I would be on this train in half a second. I hope the norbauer one doesn't cost as much as the rf cases did.
does anyone know if this case will work with a FC660C running a TMK FC660C Alt Controller? It does look like it would possibly work but I prefer to confirm that if its possible.

1 day left and no answer to any of my questions about weight or feets or green case pictures.
3 days left on drop and no pictures of the GREEN case option =\
I like Clueboard but don't want to spend so much $ on the fancy RGB case, so I'm considering just buying the parts to build one myself.
My question: Does this come with a plate? If not, does anyone know where I can buy one for it? If I'm trying to build a keyboard that feels solid, is a plate necessary?

I believe it just the case with no plate.
Wonder if this would work with the Archiss ProgresTouch Retro Tiny..
Risk
It should, since the ProgresTouch Retro Tiny is just a rebrand of the FC660M by Archiss who distribute Leopold's products in Japan.
Europeans, have one here in Titanium Gray once customs have passed. I am Troif on reddit. It is because I have everything to mount a clueboard but no time.

Would love to see future drop for FC750R! Would totally buy it!
So the comments from previous drops seem to be inconclusive on whether this works well with the Clueboard, hoping someone can clear up whether this works with it, and I'd love to see some pics if anyone has some.
Hey Massrop, any chance we can get a picture of the green version, and of the feets? If you're taking requests, I'd be interested in an orange version. Likely to take the red of green version for this drop.
How much heavier than the original plastic case is this aluminium case? Or is it the same weight?
why not FC750R? i want it.......... come on.....
Why not fC660C, this is the second drop for an FC660m aluminum case...Still no fC660c???
FC660C please! ūüė¨

What's the difference between the 2? The size of the controller?
And I mean in regards to the case, not the actual keyboard. Rubrah dome.

I've asked this on the /r/mechanical keyboards sub on Reddit and was told: > Mini-USB ports are located differently on the 660M and C, the PCBs have a different size as well. The DIP switches cutouts also have a different location on these two boards.
I have a black case on the way from Massdrop I'll sell for slightly less than paid. Comment your email under this if you're interested.

I'd definitely be interested if it's still available, my reddit UN is the same as here, or my email is consequence9 at gmail. Cheers =]

Hey, it's still available. I'll shoot you an email.
I'm also curious about the size of the 4 screws holding the case together.
Once I get the board into the case, I can only get the two screws at the top to hold. The screws on the bottom corners keep falling out.
The case screws together again nicely when I remove the board, so I think I just need to find longer screws.
Does anyone know what size screws these are? I accidentally stripped some and need to get new ones.
Are there any instructions for installing the case? My package only had the case and some 3m feet and screws :/
bad_dream_adventure
Taking off the standard case involves removing 1 screw beneath a QC sticker, then carefully unclipping tabs and prying the top case from the bottom. I just used whatever old plastic cards I found handy for this.
So I just got mine in the mail and put my Clueboard inside. Are there no slots in the alu case to screw in the plate? My plate/switches wobble when I type and it's loose in there, held down only by a peg at the right of the plate.
Anyone else using this on a clueboard? :)

Could you upload some pictures? I'm curious if the acrylic switch plate fit in it.
GTeee
I haven't got mine yet, but skullyd has confirmed this on Reddit and slack. The switch plate should fit in alright. This case requires a spacer to keep the board down properly.
Had gotten quite excited at seeing this case until I realised that the M & C are different. This definitely needs an FC660C version! :-)
aetheist
yeeah i almost buy a fc660c and fit with this case, and i suddenly realize they are different
hehe... and soon, if you're like me, you'll find yourself with a few PCB's, a handful of plates, various switches, dozens of nice keycap sets in boxes... all unused but still hunting for more. It makes me happy though, so I'm not complaining. We have to buy what we can when it's available. It's the nature of the hobby. Would be a very different story if you could just buy this stuff at any time and get it in 2 days.

I think you nailed it. For people like us, its the thrill of the hunt, then the wait and extreme patience involved.
I love having the ability to build my endgame at any time. But thats unattainable
FC660C :-( Do you have plan?
