PCB Mount/Screw-in stabilizers tend to vibrate less. M5 full-sized keyboard barebone uses Akko screw-in stabilizers (un-assembled) with nylon housing in case users want to lubricate.
The south-facing PCB of the MonsGeek M5 avoids causing interference with Cherry profile keycaps, offering more compatibility and flexibility.
M5 custom aluminum kit offers approximately 18 preset backlight modes, which allow users to adjust the brightness and flowing speed levels. Moreover, it supports a wide range of RGB effects, with over 16.8 million colors available. Users can also install an upcoming JSON file to access even more lighting effects and configurations.
New Silver Accent
While M5 silver comes with golden accent, MonsGeek has picked the new silver accent on other models. MonsGeek will start to offer standalone accents for sale to better personalize each unit based on user preference.
The N-Key Rollover technology allows all keys to work simultaneously and ensures every keystroke is recorded and prevents ghosting.
Engraved Back Design

MonsGeek M5 supports VIA for cross-platform (Linux/Mac/Windows) advanced keyboard configuration.

Need More Foam?
Monsgeek has developed its own budget custom material that performs equally as well as poron. Meanwhile, MonsGeek M5 comes with an additional sponage case foam to reduce case ping.
*Disclaimer: Using thicker foam may reduce flex, whether to include it or not is down to your personal preference.
PET Insulation Layer
A PET insulation layer has been added to the bottom case in order to prevent any short circuit issues. It’s rare for these issues to occur but we want to add extra protection.
Accessories to Play With
Extra teflon pads included for users who wish to perform a force break mod.
Extra tape for users who wish to perform a tape mod.
MonsGeek includes a default 3mm custom-made foam for a balanced feeling. Disclaimer: the foam will affect the overall sound profile and flex.
