just put it somewhere outside before you sleep, leave it there and let it dry until you wake up, although if you are really in iceland then thats a yikes, just try to put it next to a heater or something if thats the case

how did you learn to build a keyboard?

I'm gonna go ahead and guess internet/YouTube And to be honest the basics are really easy, it only starts to get a bit finnicky once you get into the details. The easy level is buying a board, buying switches that are supported by it, buying a set of stabilizers and just assembling all that. Oh, and keycaps. Advanced level is foam/tape mods, lubing and filming (inserting films) the switches, that kind of stuff. The 'hobyist'/enthusiast level is combining different switch parts to make a custom switch, experimenting with internal padding/gaskets, and gennerally fiddling with it and seeing what happens.

How much does it cost in total?

That's entirely up to you. You can get a $40-$50 board, some decent budget switches (shoutout to Gateron Yellows) and keycaps and you should be at around $80. Or you can go completely bonkers. I went with a Keychron K10 as a base, replaced the Gateron Reds with Gateron Black Ink v2's, lubed them and added some funky looking keycaps off of amazon. Ended up at around 220 Euros in total, plus a bit for the lube and some tools

if it's your first build, I'd suggest you go for a hotswap PCB Although if you could invest a little more, imo solderable PCBs are fairly worth it
2022-05-03 08:15
sorry for just hopping back on the thread now, but the guy under did the perfect job of explaining it! at the end of the day, you don't have to overspend ridiculous amounts on the board or keycaps ("real" keycaps are like 100 USD+), just work within your budget and what makes you happy. i personally use some knock off super mario themed keycaps for 20 dollars but it does the trick

Do you have any switch preferences? That'd narrow the selection a bit. Also, have you considered building your own?

No preference, I dont even play games. Something basic for comfortable typing, no need of 636261 leds and other fancy stuff…

Gateron Yellow are underrated af, although they benefit quite a bit from a lube job

ofc u lube them, all the switches that are not factory prelubed are supposed to be lubed, just buy some lube from here aliexpress.com/item/4000934992040.html?s..

Ok then, but do you prefer Linear, Tactile or Clicky switches?
2022-05-03 08:34

Clicky I guess, my dead keyboard has blue switches. It felt good, but I would probably adapt to others quickly, so its not necessity

Cooler Master has some great affordable mechanical keyboards. I've been using the CK550 for the last 1,5 years. It has been discontinued but there's a lot of good options from them.

mechanical switches feel better than optical razer switches, the only benefit of optical is that it actuates faster

NIZ Plum 82, best keyboard I've ever used, coming from a vortex pok3r v3 with cherry reds previously a ducky shine 7 with browns. Most pleasant typing experience and my mistakes when typing have dramatically reduced.
