MonsGeek M5 QMK DIY Kit

Weighing approximately 2.5kg, the M5 is MonsGeek's first full-size, aluminum barebones kit.

The M5 is equipped with 108 keys, making it a 100% barebones kit that features a variety of function keys and a numeric area. This feature-rich design allows the user to type comfortably, making it suitable for gamers, office workers, programmers and typists in various scenarios.

Disclaimer: We do NOT sell domestic non-VIA/QMK kits in the Global Store. All M-Series wired models you see are international versions only.


  • CNC aluminum

  • Gasket mount


  • 100% | Full size

  • Hot swappable

  • RGB backlit

  • N-Key Rollover

  • MAC & Windows

South facing RGB

The M5's south-facing PCB avoids interference with Cherry profile keycaps and offers greater compatibility and flexibility.

Customizable RGB

The M5 Custom Aluminum Kit offers approximately 18 preset lighting modes that allow the user to adjust the brightness and flow rate. Additionally, it supports a wide range of RGB effects with more than 16.8 million colors available. Users can also install an upcoming JSON file to access even more lighting effects and configurations.

New silver accent

To add a touch of class and elegance, we chose a beautiful silver accent that you'll fall in love with no matter how you look at it.


PCB Mount/Screw-in stabilizers tend to vibrate less. M5 uses Akko stabilizers (un-assembled) with nylon housing in case users want to lubricate.

N-key rollover

N-Key Rollover Technology allows all keys to be used simultaneously, ensuring every keystroke is recorded and preventing ghosting.

Engraved back design

The QMK version of the M5 aluminum kit adopted the new engraved back design with a redesigned sticker for aesthetic purposes.


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

This feature is exclusively for the international version of M5.

3mm luggage foam
Monsgeek has developed its own affordable material that works just as well as Poron.

*Disclaimer: Using thicker foam may reduce flexibility; Whether you use it or not depends on your personal preferences.

PET insulation layer
The bottom of the case was provided with a PET insulation layer to avoid short circuit problems. While such issues are rare, we want to provide additional protection.

Please note: This keyboard is a barebones keyboard and requires simple assembly. Switches and keycaps (sold separately).

Nice kit

Nice kit, very well make. Robust and nice and with a lot of extras to improve the sound
I miss a switch extract tool

Bang for the buck!

Amazing looking keyboard case, very easy to disassemble. My only gripes with the board are the unavailability of an ISO layout and no inclusion of a keycap and switch puller in the packaging.
