Gamakay LK67 Keyboard Kit features –
Gamakay LK67 Keyboard Kit is packed with tons of features. Here’s a small overview of its features –
PCB: This keyboard comes with a hot-swappable PCB that lets you use and switch switches of your own choice. It also comes with a 5 Pin PCB layout, so you can use both 5 Pin and 3 Pin switches.
Battery – This keyboard is packed with a 2400 mAh battery that lets you use your keyboard with RGB wirelessly.
Build – This keyboard is built solid with a thick plastic case and it uses a tray mount system with metal plates that you can see in most of the prebuilt keyboard kits.
Connectivity options – This keyboard lets you use your keyboard in three modes, Wired (Type C), Wireless 2.4Ghz and Wireless Bluetooth connection.
Media Keys – This keyboard comes with a dedicated media key that can be used to control the media, namely play, pause and control the volume by rotating the knob.
Software support – This keyboard comes with dedicated software that lets you control the RGB effects, update the keyboard firmware and lots more. RGB – The Gamakay LK67 Kit I got is a translucent version, meaning it can diffuse and show more colours. It has dedicated RGB zones on the sides, top and behind the switches.
First Impression –
You be the judge for yourself and decide 😉
If you’re wondering how the Gamakay LK67 feels for typing, then hands down I guarantee, it’s a good feeling. (Purely a personal preference) Since I opted for Gateron milky yellow switches with decent PBT keycaps, the typing feel and sound is great.
It might change if you opt for other switches and keycaps.
The sound profile of the keyboard is also decently good. Considering without any mod, the keyboard is the most silent one I own so far among these keyboards –
Razer Blackwidow V3 Mini with Razer yellow switches
Blitzwolf BW KB2 with Optical Gateron Yellow switches
Kemove Shadow DK61 with Gateron Brown switches
Kemove Snowfox DK61 with Gateron Blue switches
And among them, I consider to mod this keyboard because it already sounds so good than the others. The stock stabs in the Gamakay LK67 Keyboard Kit is decent, but upgrading or lubing them would give them a new life I believe.
Anything simple like adding O rings to the keys or adding a film between the switches can bring in a world of a difference but if you are planning to lube and use this keyboard, it will be even better.
The honey milk PBT keycaps should also be credited here as they add an additional feel to your typing experience. These keycaps have a deep curve on all four sides unlike the other keycaps, thereby a good sound and good typing feel.
This keyboard supports all types of cherry profile keys with a 3 pin or a 5 pin. This makes sure that you have an ocean of options to choose from. Be it keycaps or switches, you got all the options you’ll ever need.
Gamakay LK 67 software –
The Gamakay LK67 Keyboard kit comes with its own software which can be used for different purposes. Here’s what the software looks like –
Main – You are welcomed with a home screen with an option to reset the keyboard and change the layer in case you have customized the keyboard for a different language layout.

Support – In this section of the software, you can update the App version and the Firmware version to keep your drivers & keyboard firmware to the latest version. This section also has the language switch option, so in case the software you download came with the Chinese language, you can change it here. Link to download: Gamakay LK67 Software
Final Verdict –
So, should you buy the Gamakay LK67 Keyboard kit? Is it the right keyboard for you?
Absolutely, if this is your first keyboard, you won’t have any regrets.
You have read all the good things and I’ve two cons that I want to share –
The software bundled for this keyboard works wired only The keyboard feet aren’t adjustable. They are fixed
The Gamakay LK67 keyboard kit costs anywhere around $65 to $70 whereas the fully built Gamakay LK67 keyboard costs around $85 to $90. You can make the right choice as it is basically the same keyboard.
The only advantage for going towards the keyboard kit is you get lots of colour options – White, Black, Translucent White, Translucent Black, and Translucent Pink. While you get the advantage of colours, you lose on the advantage of the budget as the keycaps alone can sometimes be half the cost of the keyboard or sometimes cost as much as the keyboard itself.
So if you are someone who wants to enjoy the journey of building the keyboard and customizing it according to your needs, then the
Gamakay LK67 Keyboard Kit is the right choice for you. If not, then you can go for the normal version of the Gamakay LK67 Keyboard. Hope I provided you with all the information you need for the keyboard. Stay tuned for the video that will be dropping very soon on your YouTube channel.
