  1. That vinyl job looks excellent! I didn't know anyone was still looking at this project - you've made my day!
  2. Honestly the only thing I could think of that could go wrong is the printing scale. If you want more specific help feel free to shoot me a PM and include a picture of what happened.
  3. This is a problem I've heard about before. You have probably scaled the PDF when printing it, which will mess everything up. I've answered this problem before, but the thread is long and it is difficult to read the whole thing. This is the solution I worked on; please forgive me for copy/pasting. If you don't think this is a print scaling issue, please post a picture of the problem you're seeing.
  4. Corsair does have the SEA HAWK branded GPUs that they teamed up with Msi for. Not sure if those count as Corsair or MSI, but they exist.
  5. 1st off, posting to tech forums is an excellent idea. I use mostly Corsair peripherals, but as far as I know, Corsair has branded GPUs, RAM, Keyboards, Mice, PSUs, Cases, and Cooling solutions. If I were to ask for a custom PC for my birthday, I would want to pick the components myself. Perhaps if your son knows the hardware you could pick components together? If that's not an option, I'm sure the forums here can help you out, provided that you let us know a little more information. 1. Purpose of the PC: You've specified Gaming. What games does he play (or intend on playing?) 2. Budget: I'd recommend at least spending $800 if you are planning on using Corsair components, but I would expect to spend more depending on the tier system you're trying to build. 3. Constraints: ex. does the PC have to be easy to move around? (will he travel to and from college with the PC?) 4. Any other brands that need to be in the PC: NVIDIA vs AMD or INTEL vs AMD - some people feel strongly about these choices. 5. Country (for pricing relevance with the budget) And I guess if you have any color theme in mind, now is the time to decide! Also, I don't think Corsair sells prebuilt machines. More often than not, prebuilt machines are imbalanced and overpriced. 100% custom PCs are daunting, but are an amazing experience. When you push that power button and know that you wired it yourself, its an excellent feeling. I highly recommend that either you or your son (or both) do a complete custom build. It is honestly not as hard as you'd think ;) This is a great video for learning the basics of PC building. It is a three year old guide, but pretty much everything in PC building is the same today as shown in the video. Keep in mind though that this is a general guide - using different parts will require a different assembly process that is detailed in the user manual (and usually on other YouTube videos) [ame] [/ame]
  6. Yes, that file is sized to work with A4 paper. When given the option, choose "No scaling" when you print. Also, if you cut out a small portion you can verify that it will fit the keyboard before cutting all the squares out.
  7. Yes, check my dropbox PDF folder for printable layouts. Paper looks very good, and is practically free. It's what I'd advise anyone without easy access to a laser cutter (or similar equipment) to do.
  8. I don't know of a place that sells them. You could ask a local signage shop if they could cut one for you. They are expensive to get custom made, though.
  9. That looks like a scaling issue. Chech your print settings, and I will check the file for scaling issues when I get home tonight.
  10. I only officially support the US layout, because that's the only keyboard layout I have and can design for. If I were to get my hands on a board with the UK layout, I'd be happy to provide UK support for this mod. Any other files I host are given to me by other contributors that have keyboards I do not have. I don't test these files (because I don't have the required hardware), but I provide them on the forum here if other people would like to use them. As for the RAPIDFIRE series, I believe the new layout is identical to the old layout, but I do not yet own a RAPIDFIRE or Lux board so I can't verify that.
  11. I use a keycap puller. You can remove keycaps by hand... It is just difficult and you run a greater risk of breaking the stem. That being said, I've pulled keycaps with my hand and never broke anything. You just have to make sure you're pulling directly up and do NOT twist, or you will break something! Here's a guide by WASD: [ame] [/ame]
  12. As long as the red L measures 10mm by 10mm, you have printed at the correct scale. In case you would like to test the scale out, you could cut out the arrow keys on their own (or some other small section) and try to put it on the keyboard. It should work just fine. Be careful if you plan on using cardboard. It could work just fine, but the overall thickness should be no more than 1/16" or the keycaps will hit the backplate. I reccomend using craft paper (it is rigid enough to last a long time) I never used any sort of adhesive. That would be up to you, but I think that would void the warranty and make the mod difficult to remove in the event you are trying to RMA a defective keyboard. The model has low tolerances (designed for laser cutting) and fit snugly around the switches, which should hold them down if you cut carefully.
  13. I believe I have found a solution to your scaling issues. I put a reference scale on the PDF files this time so you can verify that the printout will fit before cutting the paper. The new files have been uploaded here and on my dropbox. I hope this helps! Also, if you are using the US or A4 standard paper size (8.5" x 11" or 210 x 297 mm) you should have no need to scale the PDF at all as long as you are using the appropriate file for your paper (US file for US paper and A4 file for A4 paper). 100% scaling is no scaling.
  14. Email or call the shop and ask if they can use Adobe Illustrator files. I would be really surprised if there's a shop that can cut these that doesn't use Adobe Illustrator...
