65% Mechanical Keyboard & VIA Programming Support
After releasing several keyboards and receiving feedback from the community, we at CIDOO are excited to launch an extremely powerful mechanical keyboard that supports VIA programming. With a 65% layout, the keyboard retains all of the essential keys for daily work and gaming, along with cursor keys. Furthermore, with VIA keyboard programming, you can assign additional keys and functions to fully remap your keyboard for your every need.
This means that you get a fully functional keyboard with only 65% of the size! VIA allows you to create macros and remap your keyboard layout to quickly access any function in any program. And with on-board memory, you can save and switch between up to 6 different layers. The V65 is ideal for those who demand accuracy, speed, reliability and endurance for long gaming sessions.
Wired or Bluetooth Wireless Connectivity, Win or Mac Mode for Your Choice
With built-in 3000mAh battery, the V65 supports wireless connection via Bluetooth, as well as wired usage with the included Type-C USB cable. The keyboard can connect with up to 3 devices, and you can easily switch between devices by pressing Fn + Z, X, or C.
The V65 is perfect for on-the-go typing or use with mobile setups. The V65 is compatible with both Windows and MacOS, and you can switch between OS layouts by entering the Win mode (Fn+Q) or Mac mode (Fn+W).
The Best Structural Design and Construction
The V65 is designed as a gasket-mounted mechanical keyboard with poron dampening foam and an included PC Plate. Gasket mounting is a type of keyboard structural mounting design, where no screws are used in the switch plate. By placing a gasket within the keyboard construction, the typing feels smoother and more cushioned, with added structural integrity over time.
The typing tactile and auditory experience is further enriched in the V65 with the use of high-quality Poron foams. Poron foam in our construction dampens reverberations within the housing, effectively dampening resonance and allowing a cleaner sound profile. Finally, the V65 comes with a PC plate, which best fits the gasket mount compared to other more flexible plates such as steel or FR4. This adds to the stability of the keyboard over long gaming sessions.
Aluminium Casing & Retro Dye-Sublimation PBT Keycaps
The CIDOO V65 comes with an CNC aluminum body. Our aluminum has been electrically treated to give the keyboard body a better surface finish and a silky-smooth texture. Not only are the resulting colors extremely long lasting, the process also strengthens the aluminum itself, making it durable and corrosion-and-oxidation-resistant.
The dye-sub PBT keycaps in grey-beige color was specially designed to integrate into the retro-theme. PBT keycaps are often considered the top choice for keycaps, even over ABS keycaps, as the PBT material is much more durable, oil-resistant (does not get shiny over time like ABS ones), and stays true to color.
Quark Customized Matte Linear Switches & Hot Swappable Layout
The switches on the V65 are Quark Matte switches that give a linear typing experience with 47g of operating force. With Nylon housings, POM stems, and being factory lubed, the switches are durable and attribute to creating a clear acoustic environment. The V65 is equipped with a hot-swappable PCB that supports 3-pin and 5-pin mechanical switches. Hot-swappable keyboard allow convenient for switch replacements with other mechanical switches. This means you can use any other mechanical switches you like on the V65 without any need for soldering
South-facing LEDs & Light Diffusers
The CIDOO V65 features RGB backlights that are also customizable through VIA. With south-facing LEDs, the keyboard avoids the interference with the popular cherry profile keycaps. What’s more, the keyboard comes with light diffusers which make the RGB brighter and bring more fun for customization of your typing environment.
Rotary Knob for Media Control & NKRO Support
The CIDOO V65 is designed with a knob to control volume. By simply rotating left or right and pressing, the keyboard can turn the system volume up, down, or completely muted. As for anti-ghosting, the keyboard comes with 6KRO out of the factory and can be switched to the NKRO mode. With the above features, CIDOO V65 is the ultimate keyboard for gamers.
Select the best switch for your style.
Before choosing what type of mechanical or optical switch, we need to understand it is mostly about preference. You need to look into what will work best for you and what you will use your keyboard for the most. Our Epomaker GK series, and some of our other keyboards allow for hotswappability. This means that even if you dislike the current switch you bought, you can swap it to another switch. Which switch you can swap to depends on your keyboard type.

This is really a great keyboard, especially for the price. I have quite a few keyboards and most I've built or modified. This one is absolutely amazing right out of the box. I have no complaints and highly recommend it.
Some of you guys may know this as the Finalkey v2, as they did a collaboration to expand the colorways (with a big difference being the Finalkey doesn't include switches and isn't already built). As a prebuilt keyboard that includes everything, the CIDOO v65 is a pretty ridiculously good value. As a budget custom board, it's cheaper than zoom65 or qk65. It's actually even cheaper than a lot of commodity boards from Razer/Logitech/etc, but miles ahead in quality.
After tax/shipping, it ends up around $150 to the US. For that you get pretty high quality keycaps, full rgb lighting, excellent linear switches, a full aluminum frame, and via compatibility. I've built a ton of keyboards already and got this mostly as a novelty to see what corners were cut for them to make this. Frankly, there wasn't much. It's just a great, simple, and highly configurable keyboard.
Like the title says
We're sorry to hear that you're having trouble connecting to your VIA device. We would recommend contacting customer support for assistance. They may be able to help you out. Thank you for your patience!
Its a really nice stock keyboard for a competitive price, stabs could be better but overall its great
I absolutely love this keyboard. The sound of the keys, the build, it's great. I've noticed in my daily use that sometimes (like 20% of the time), the CTRL key doesn't work. It takes a couple presses before it does. This occurs whether I'm connected via USB or bluetooth.
Aside from that, great keyboard.
