The problem I have with MX Silent Switches (Clicking / Ticking)

Hi guys,

I had a problem that my newly built 60 with MX Silent Blacks was not completely silent.

Only a hand full of keys were actually silent as expected. The remaining keys gave off a ticking noise. Some more than others. This annoyed the heck out of me and fortunately, after two weeks, I was able to resolve the issue.

In case, anyone encounters the same problem, I want to share the solution. By opening this thread I am also hoping that people who are doing google searches will find this thread and find quick help.

The first two videos are from two weeks ago when I was still looking for a solution. They describe the problem in detail. The third and last video I made a few days ago to demonstrate and share the solution to potential desperate fellow keyboard enthusiasts in need.

If this helps at least one person out there, it wasn't for nothing!

Switch films did the job.
