Hi all. I searched a bit on here. but didn't find a solution.
I just got a Z20 Linear keyboard. Want it to be somewhat less clicky noisy. My Daughter has the Huntsman and its really quite. 
So my question - is there a way to silent my keyboard? If I need to get switches. What switch do I need to get? 

Thanks

    O rings should definitely help as with linear switches the noise will be generated from the key hitting the actual board. Unfortunately the Z20 is not a hot swappable keyboard, so you would not be able to replace the switches. You can also try a desk pad under the keyboard and that should make a difference as well. Switch lube can also help.
