It is very difficult to find a 96-100% barebones board that is hot-swappable on a budget. I love how this board turned out after the modding. However, it was a PAIN to mod. It took me 40 minutes just to get board, the top and bottom were easy to detach the problem was the sides because they are grooved.
The gasket is not a true gasket, it is just pieces of foam in a slit to give it the "gasket" feel. There is foam between the top plate and the PCB as well as foam stickers around the switch slots, but there is no foam in the bottom of the board. It is completely hollow. I put in 4mm PE foam and did my normal tape mod to the back of the PCB to give it the sound that I wanted.
The stabilizers are actually pretty decent, I ended up not changing those and just lubing them myself to get rid of the rattle. They were not lubed well at all, but there was an obvious yet terrible attempt.
I absolutely love how the board turned out after my customizations, but with how much of a pain it was to get the board apart in order to mod it and the "gasket" attempt I have to give it 4 stars and not 5. If it was a true gasket board and didn't take me 40 minutes to get apart then I would have given it 5 stars.
I do highly recommend this board however if you are looking for a 96% board to build. Mine turned out beautiful.
