Everest 60 FAQ

Where can I find the Quick Start Guide?

You can download it by clicking here.

How can i check if my firmware is up to date?

If Base Camp does not prompt you with an update the latest version is installed. In order to check the firmware version, navigate to the Settings tab of your keyboard. The release notes can be found here.

Where can I get replacement or additional parts?

Replacement parts or additional accessories for your MOUNTAIN products can be obtained directly from our shop or through our resellers.

Do I need drivers for my MOUNTAIN keyboard?

No, the keyboard itself is plug & play and can be used without installing any additional drivers or software.  However, in order to unleash your keyboard’s full potential, we recommend installing our Base Camp™ software.

Which switch is the best?

This question is impossible to answer, as it depends entirely on your personal preference.

Most switches fall into either of these three categories:
Linear (MOUNTAIN Linear 45, Linear 45 Speed, etc.), Tactile (MOUNTAIN Tactile 55, Cherry MX Brown, etc.) and Clicky (Cherry MX Blue, Kailh Box White, etc.).

Linear switches provide a smooth uninterrupted travel.
Tactile switches have a tactile bump during travel, indicating the actuation point.
Clicky is not entirely unlike tactile, however, they feature an additional audio feedback, usually in form of a clickbar, to make you both hear and feel the actuation of the switch.

Can I use any switch with my Everest 60 Keyboard?

You can use any 3-pin plate-mounted or 5-pin PCB mounted Cherry MX style switches. Our webstore carries a carefully selected collection of switches fully compatible with Everest 60.

I installed switches but keypresses are not recognized. What gives?
Please remove the non-working switches and check their legs, they may have bent during the install process and are thus not making contact. Straighten the pins with a pin or tweezers and reinstall them.
I bent the pins of a mechanical switch during install. Is it salvageable?
Most likely, yes. You can use a pin or tweezers to gently straighten the pin before you install it again.
Can I remove or replace switches while the keyboard is powered on/connected?
Yes, absolutely! We recommend doing so, as you’ll immediately be able to tell if the switch is working correctly.
Can I use the Everest 60 Numpad individually using its USB connector?

No, it needs to be connected to an Everest 60 Keyboard in order to work.

What kind of keycaps does Everest 60 come with?

The Everest 60 keyboards ship with double-shot PBT keycaps.

Can I lube Everest 60’s stabilizers?

You sure can, but you probably won’t need to, as they come pre-lubed from the factory.

What kind of stabilizers are installed on Everest 60?

Everest 60 comes with plate-mounted Cherry stabilizers.
