So, this is my setup. I do still need to get rid of that awful bright green Razer mousepad (my setup is matte-black and deep-blue) and paint the bottom bezel of that AOC monitor black. I mostly drink Vanilla Coke and ACE Drink (some kind of fruity drink), but as you can see, the glass on the left is empty... I have to do something about that...

This is my beloved current clacker, the Ducky Shine 3 TKL, that I picked up for 35 euros. One of the LED's is defective (the "W" key), which is why it was so amazingly cheap. (Repairing and modding hardware is a hobby of mine, just look at the Deathadder 3.5G on the desk --> different scrollwheel, carbon fiber sides and different slippy feet) I'm planning to solder blue leds in the WASD and ESC keys. It's outfitted with the Vortex backlit PBT keycaps, an artisan gem ESC keycap and translucent WASD keycaps. I'm also using the nice braided cable that came with my Quickfire TK. I might also do some more fun stuff with the case, cable and keycaps, I have not yet decided though.

I do apologize for the photos, the lighting is abosulutely terrible at nighttime. Here are some more pics to show the keycaps a bit better.

I also have a French AZERTY Blackwidow Chroma which I bought for 20 euros and repaired, which, of course, I'm, going to sell again, and a blue CM Storm Quickfire TK, which was my very first mechanical keyboard and has been such for about 2 years :) I have also had and repaired a Logitech G710+ and a Corsair Vengeance K70.

I do apologize for the terribly long story, I got a bit too much into it I guess... Anyway, thanks for reading and have a great day/night/etc, and don't be afraid to ask if you want to know something, of course !

Just a question, but where in the world did you find these keyboards for SUCH a low price?? Anyhow, as they say, cool story bro.

Hey Sloblo,
It wasn't very difficult at all, actually. You just have to be patient and careful, which is always the case with projects like this. It can be a bit difficult to get the edges and corners right, and I recommend thourougly cleaning your mouse before trying to apply the vinyl (As I did), so that the adhesive can properly stick to the plastic. Hope this helps, let me know if you have any more questions !
you got it, showing off my potato-quality lifestyle and carbon wrap.
love that desk that cubby on the left looks handy wish i had that on mine easy to hide stuff from the kids !

Hey Elmur, Yes, me too! I actually routed my headphone and mic cables through the back of it and that's where I keep my Sennheiser HD 598's. I also mounted a power bar to the "ceiling" at the back for the monitors and things like charging phones and such. There's lots of uses for such a simple thing !
