    Jono's Note: You can have the Numpad separated, but you'll need to buy this extension cable - mountain.gg/usb-type-c-to-type-c-cable/

      Indeed. I have the Max with this cable and it means I can move my numpad to sit above my keyboard, giving more space for my mouse.

      @Tyler Swidler On their main Everest board, it has to plug directly into the keyboard. Or at least it does on mine. That said, I haven't updated or used their software since I bought the board in 2019 , so I can not say for certain. It's possible it will work now. I just haven't needed to change my lighting or had any problems that would require using basecamp software.

    I can definitely recommend putting the numpad on the left side, gives you the mouse space of a TKL but you still have a numpad and the numpad is much more usable for hotkeys in games or programs with a lot of mouse usage.

      @Viktor Reznov well the reason the keyboard always has the numpad on the right is because the modern keyboard layout is actually the same layout that the IBM introduced in 1985 and it's just been the defacto standard keyboard layout and only recently has messing with that layout has gained more popularity.

      @Viktor Reznov I guess it's the same reason why qwerty is used almost everywhere. It's not logical, it's nowhere near being optimal, especially since different languages have vastly different properties, but it got popular, so it's likely never going away

    • Viktor Reznov

      @Jehty Well, maybe. I just imagined right handed people use a calculator with a right hand. But maybe you're correct. Also probably yes, you would need to relearn it. Maybe that's also why it has been always on the right? Because somebody put it there in the first place for some reason and it's just stuck there?

    • Jehty
      Jehty

      @Viktor Reznov why would most people use a calculator with their right hand? I am left handed and use my calculator with the right hand so that I don't have to put the pen down. I assume righties do the same just swapped. But anyways why does that even matter? You have to relearn your muscle memory either way. So just do it.

    you can do extended numpad. I bought one of the original everest maxes, and one of the things that is marketed was that they give you a small usb c female to male cable to attach numpad at an extended distance. I've run it like this quite a bit

      @DarkSide1305 I’m not sure from an engineering standpoint what differences there would be to making them work as a usb pass through/ two way power source but I’d like to imagine not much in terms of overall additional space being required. Due to it being possible on smart phones these days which are say half the size of the keyboard it surely can’t be that hard. This not knowing is the exact reason I posted my og comment. As a consumer or potential customer of this item its something I would want to know just as it wouldn’t make sense to me if they didn’t. As the markup for having 2 extra ports that might only be used to power the keyboard means as a customer we would be paying more money for a relatively gimmicky or niche feature due to additional components and/ or manufacturing steps.

      @rex Previously But there are only 3 USB C's?

    • rex Previously

      @DarkSide1305 There is one, cause there is one connection to the PC, and there is also a USB A out on the back of the keyboard.

      @Marvin Westmaas Deleted my comment, realised they meant the 3 USB. Would mean they need to build a USB Hub into the Keyboard I think.

    • Marvin Westmaas
      Marvin Westmaas

      @UCJBMbwYk05lipRyy2bRYPWw I think he meant the top 3 usb-c ports which are all usb-c because all can be used to connect the pc to the kb itself. Would indeed be nice if KB could act as usb-hub and you could plug in other devices there.

  • GudDud •_•

    I think you should be able to get a usb-c cable extend for the numpad (usb-c female to usb-c male). Connect one end to the numpad and the other to the side of the keyboard.

      @Little Jackalo yeah, connecting another usb to the motherboard sounds pointless when you could just have an extension usb cable connecting to the keyboard, letting you move the keypad anywhere but still being connected to the keyboard. But I just prefer a full-size anyway but having the freedom to move the keypad would be nice for someone interested in this keyboard

    • Little Jackalo
      Little Jackalo

      @Benjamin Cusack huh? It's already got a male USB C on the num pad that connects to a female USB C on the keyboard. Are you connecting the numpad to the computer on it's own? The complexity added to plug it into the keyboard is negligible.

    One thing I've learned from watching any video about keyboards (standalone or on a laptop) from LMG is that it's subjective as hell. You can see one person flex the s*** out of a board and say there's hardly any flex while someone else will barely flex a keyboard and say that there's too much flex.

      @JC There is nothing revolutionary here, it is a cheap $50 gaming keyboard with a 1 cent foam and bad lube job for $140. Many pc gamers have built their own computer so I think they are capable of doing a couple mods on their own. This is a really bad value when you look at boards like the gmmk pro or the recent qk65, I would rather save up for those. What I am trying to say is that there are budget $50-$75 gaming keyboards and there are $200-$350 entry level enthusiast keyboards and the $75-$200 range in between is a waste of money but that seems to be the price range this channel is focused on, maybe because that is the high margin garbage with the biggest profits?

    • JC
      JC

      @Ronak Parikh it's also a major step up for a "big company" to do something this decently. Obviously the enthusiast market is going to want to do things themselves, because that's the point of the hobby, where you have something you can really feel good about because you custom tuned it yourself and did all these mods and hard work to make a nice board. This is just for the gamers who don't want a shit board with super rattly stabs and stuff but can't be bothered to actually do a custom keyboard

      @Macchi Strauss yes on a laptop a numpad doesn't put the keyboard in the middle which is super uncomfortable and un ergonomic. I'd say the same for desktop's since it then cause your mouse to be a million miles away and have no mouse pad space.

    So there is a keyboard in the UK market called a Shortboard Leftie and i have a heavily modded one and its great. I replaced the switches with silent switches and put a removable usbc socket in the case so i can use my custom cables. It has the nav and the numberpad on the left side but in the same layout that youd expect, just moved. You could also just get a wireless numberpad for what you need especially if you dont use them all too much

  • Ox
    Ox

    I use spreadsheets a lot so I really couldn't give up my numpad. Function keys are also pretty useful for me especially if for media control but I wanted a little more compact form factor vs full-size so 96% is really working well for me right now. But having the option to remove or have the numpad on the side but still usable like Plouf was saying seems like a pretty nice solution that I could see myself trying out in the future!

      @Trae Block I think they removed it a in one of the last updates. Only noticed that after I already installed it, a shame I liked that mode. Besides the lighting, the extra buttons on the numpad are not working all the time. Launching task manager, websites and all the general windows stuff (e.g. sleep) work fine but launching programms (in my case Discord doesn’t seem to work again, worked fine in the past.

    • Trae Block
      Trae Block

      @Burt Macklin The software is not good. It actually removed functionality from the keyboard, lol. Out of the box, before I downloaded Basecamp, the keyboard had a cool reactive lighting effect that alternated between RBGYOV on every keystroke. After installing Basecamp, it still has the reactive mode, but it's limited to one, maybe two colors. I really enjoy the keyboard itself, though! I did have an issue with the numpad a few days ago when it just shut off for a few minutes and wouldn't turn back on, even though the actual keyboard was fine. After trying both sides and using the extension cable a few times, it turned back on and has been working since, but I don't think anything I did had any effect.

    I have the Everest Max myself (thanks in part to the review from you guys) and yeah... The Base Camp software is pretty garbo. It doesn't like it when you want to set up lighting. I got my keyboard looking the way I want in one profile and just accept that the rest of the lighting profiles have a few compromises until they improve the software.

  • Ze Thao

    BTW Mountain sells an extension cable for the number pad, but it's short for some reason and it has a very specific protocol I guess. You can't use any ordinary usb c to c cable, it has to be Mountain's cable and can only be used connected to the keyboard. I've tried on my own Mountain Everest Max, the full size version but maybe they changed it for the 60%.

  • MUR MUR
    MUR MUR

    Awesome review big guy. That is a really nice little keyboard. You could use that usb-c female to male cable like the 1.5 foot one on Amazon, but can the other usb ports be used independently to charge devices or add a F-key bar etc? That would be cool to have even more modularity and customize your desk layout even more.

    I still can't get over those gigantic coiled cables with giant connectors on them that have become so popular for some reason. I just find them so silly. Then again I'm a bit of a flashlight nerd, so I shouldn't judge.

    • intParse
      intParse

      Those giant connectors can sometimes be useful. Unfortunately not all boards have a USB-C connector. Especially some older custom boards might have a Mini-USB or Micro-USB connector instead. Having there be an extra connector in the cable close to the device means that one can just change the device end of the USB cable from e.g. USB-C to Mini-USB instead of having to run a whole new USB cable when swapping boards. However, most of the time they are just used for looks.

    • BlackTears

      As much as I love the keyboard hobby, I think coiled cables look ridiculous and all the silly keycap sets with extra symbols or several colors and awful legends seem really strange to me, especially with the adamant dislike of RGB within the hobby.

    I got the full sized Everest Max about a month ago, and I can tell you that the Basecamp software is hot garbage. I love the keyboard itself, but customizing anything is a huge pain. Also, I'm pretty sure that they said the numpad can only be connected with their usb c extension cable. I haven't tested it myself, since my numpad stays on the left side. Overall, I'm glad I got it, and the customization is nice now that I have it set up but I want people that watch the video to know that the software will likely not be any better after the embargo.

    About putting the numpad on a different location. It does allow an extension cable to go in between. The Mountain Everest Max has this, and I assume the 60% version would as well.

  • Beth Targett

    My old keyboard was a 60%, and the reason I changed away was because I found myself wanting the number pad back. Something like this would be ideal so I could have more space on my desk most of the time, then snap in the number pad when I need it.

    • Gaiiden

      Honestly if you already have a good 60% I feel like you'd be better off getting a separate numpad. They aren't that expensive and you can get some wired or wireless ones.

    This is vaguely related, but I've been looking for a way to make use of some old macbooks that are either dead or starting to show their age. Rather than throw em in the e-waste pile, I was looking into turning their keyboard/trackpads into an external USB device. Apparently the internals all use USB signals, so if I just find the right chip and the right pins to hook up to a USB cable I'm good to go, right? I haven't gone much further into the project than looking up the schematics and making sure I have the correct pins identified, but I'm guessing as long as I've got the 5v and 3.3v power rails sorted out... I should be able to pull the outgoing +/- data signal right off the PSOC right? I know you're out there, Louis Rossmann. Pls notice me, senpai.

    TKL stands for Ten KeyLess. It's what you have before you plug in the keypad, not after. This guy misuses the word a couple of times. If you want a compact mechanical keyboard with the numpad, get the Akko 3098B. It has all the features this thing does except that it sounds better and has significantly better stabilizers for the tradeoff that the numpad is integrated. All for significantly less money.

    I have spent so long typing on a full size keyboard that trying to work on a 60% throws my muscle memory all out of whack. Even a TKL doesn't really work for me. So the whole enthusiast KB world has really not been available to me until these modular kb's started coming along, and I fully get why they only do 60% and TKL. But they still only rarely do things like function keys or they put arrow keys in the wrong place, like this kb does. If someone makes a fully hotswap kb with modules that lets me make a full size kb that is decent quality, that isn't thousands of dollars, I'm going to be all over that. I'm sick of having to replace kb's over one dead switch, no I'm not getting out a soldering iron to do a switch swap I can but that amount of time and effort is way more than a new kb costs.

    I feel like a right-angle usb-c extension cable would help to solve the not being able to detach it issue

    What's stopping you from running a cable between the num pad and the keyboard?

      @Ruebo I got a couple of different cables from Amazon to try out. A 30cm and a 60cm. Neither of them work. Several other people had the same experience when I asked on the Mountain discord. That might look like a regular cable it isnt.

      @richtea78 What do you mean by normal usb-c cable?

      @Ruebo yes that cable will work but a normal USB C cable won’t work

      @richtea78 That’s not true. I got the Everest Max and there was a small female to male usb-c cable in the package. You can use that to connect the both. It shows up in the software as if were directly attached to the main part but otherwise works fine. I think it’s something about needing a cable with all pins.

      @Sijonda I have the Everest Max. It doesn't work because the software doesn't allow it. If you want to waste your money then be my guest

    This is one of those concepts that's really cool in theory, but in practice doesn't really make sense. I can't imagine there are that many people who would want to switch between a 60% and full size often enough to warrant a modular device like this. 99.9% of people would sooner just keep their setup static, and at that point there are other keyboards that can fit the bill for less. I'm sure there will be at least one person who disagrees.

    7:20 why shouldn't you be able to do that? Just get a female to male USB-C cable and hook the numpad to the keyboard, like an extension basically.

    Can't help but feel if you're going to put those cool magnetic feet at the back, adding a space for them at the front and including a few extra would be awesome for those that want to tilt the other (correct?) way.

    They do have a cable that comes separate for the numpad. It connects to the keyboard and you can move the numpad elsewhere. But that's with the Everest Core that I'm using. I dunno how they're doing the 60.

    I like my 72 key Drevo Calibur v2 (60% with Fn F-keys), I just wish anyone made really nice low profile numpads without completely breaking the bank or having to solder stuff. I am constantly looking to find a decent numpad to expand my 60% to a TKL, but frankly the options are all horrible, including this.

    finally ltt has a video with a keyboard enthusiast i would love to see more of this. I belive that it is a part that is missing for me

    You can get a 60% with a numpad it's called a 96% keyboard and so far the only keyboard manufacturer i've seem make them is Keychron.

    60% isn't the physical size, rather it is the amount of keys on the keyboard. As that keyboard has arrow keys, it is a 65%.

    I thought TKL stood for "tenkeyless", as in "without numpad"

    Personally, I like to experiment with cases when building a new keyboard. I keep thinking a dedicated NumPad would be a fun build but the times I need a full size keyboard for editing or accounting, ill just pull out the old logitech. Keyboards feel like a weird venn diagram of NEED TO WORK and FUN TO MAKE. Yeah I prefer to use my 65%kbdfan case with lubed tactile switches, but I also appreciate how useful a $50 logitech fullsize is in the stable. I hate to be that guy but this prebuilt is a bad deal.

    I have a USB C extension at home...I wonder if You could plug the num pad to the keyboard with this extension and have it anywhere zyou want 🙃 not the most elegant solution but still...why not 🤟
