Hello everyone!

I'm George. I run Optic Boards - http://www.opticboards.com

I have an IC here for Cherry MX Silent Black switches.

There is an MOQ of 48,000 switches! Which is incredibly high, to help achieve this I will only be allowing purchases of packs of 120, instead of the however many you want as long as it's more than 10 which I usually do. I will be getting the switches from Cherry's European distributor, so there will not be a re-seller in the middle.

The price is £26 for a pack of 120 or roughly £0.2166... per switch. ($33.94, so it is $0.282 per switch)

I will be pledging to purchase at least 40 packs of switches for myself leaving only 360 packs to be purchased by everyone else.

I would like to run this GB alongside a CONUS based proxy, so if anyone would like to jump in as a proxy let me know via DM or email: george@opticboards.com.


Shipping prices. £3.50 UK, £5.50 EU, £7.50 everyone else.

Any questions let me know!

Update: Novelkeys has agreed to proxy over in the US! I'll update once he has worked out appropriate price to cover customs and shipping to him.

UPDATE: Novel Keys will be offering packs of 120 for $39 from within the US.

Really nice price, I'm in for a set.
Can you specify which switches it'll be? Plate/PCB mount and black/clear housing?

These will be PCB mount, that way if you needed Plate mount then you can snip the extra pins of to make plate mount compatible switches.

The Cherry Part No. is MX3A-11NW. Which are black housings I believe.

Talking to two US vendors. Fairly confident that there will be at least one US proxy for this GB.

Hey VicareyG! Did you asked the Cherry distributor what the lead time is?
