Full-sized 108-key aluminum DIY Kit.

MonsGeek M5 DIY Kit

With a weight of approximately 2.5kg, M5 is MonsGeek first full-sized south-facing aluminum barebone kit.

M5 is equipped with 108 keys, making it a 100% barebone kit that boasts a multitude of function buttons and a numeric area. This feature-rich design enables users to type with convenience, making it suitable for gamers, office workers, programmers, and typists across various scenarios.

Disclaimer: we do NOT sell domestic non-VIA/QMK version kits on global store. All M series wired models you see are international versions exclusive.


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.

South-facing PCB

The south-facing PCB of the M5 avoids causing interference with Cherry profile keycaps, offering more compatibility and flexibility.

Customizable RGB

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

Adding a touch of class and elegance, we opted to add a beautiful golden accent so that no matter which way you look at it, you’ll fall in love over and over again. 

N-Key Rollover

The N-Key Rollover technology allows all keys to work simultaneously and ensures every keystroke is recorded and prevents ghosting.

Engraved Back Design

M5 Aluminum Kit QMK version has adopted the new engraved back design with a re-sized sticker for aesthetics purposes.

QMK / VIA Support

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

This feature is exclusively for international version of M5.

Need More Foam?

Monsgeek has developed its own budget custom material that performs equally as well as poron. Meanwhile, MonsGeek M5 custom kit 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 3mm PORON foam for a balanced feeling. Disclaimer: the foam will affect the overall sound profile and flex.

Awesome High Quality Full-Size Keyboard

I ordered this keyboard on 01/04/2024. The order took about 15 days to come. I just received it around 7:20pm SGT. Took me 1 hour and 45 minutes to get it up and running. I am running the Monsgeek M5 with Gateron Ink Black v2s. The linear switch makes the keyboard sound very thocky. Foam and everything else provided made the keyboard really sturdy. The metal chassis is what makes this purchase worthwhile. The QMK firmware as well as VIA software allows me the configure the keyboard quickly and efficiently with all sorts of macros and keybinds. all in all, an excellent well-built keyboard paired with linear switches.
