Recently purchased a Mechanical Keyboard (StealSeries) for my sons PC gaming and omg what a loud noise that keyboard makes, so looking around for options I noticed this video on YouTube when they use small O-rings as buffers to stop the top of the keyboard button clattering with the keyboads switch stalk (best name I could think of).
As long as the button has a centre spindle then the O ring can be placed over spindle and stops keyboard battering keyboard base mount which is where most of the noise is generated.
All keys have to be removed and you need around 110 o-rings with a keyboard button puller, seems to work well but does make the keyboard button feel odd when button makes full travel and compresses the o-ring. if you are quick enough, this seems also to make button return slightly quicker to original position
All good ideas, O-ring seems to be working well for the moment and will try felt rings at some point
