1) Krytox GPL 205G0
2) Tribosys 3204
3) Tribosys 3203

You can swap 1 & 3 depending on if you value the speed (3203) or the smoothness (205G0).

Along with Cherry MX Silents, Cherry MX Speeds were one of the first switches to use a new stem mold sometime in 2016. As such, there are no pretool versions of this switch, which is a good thing! In most ways, they're basically identical to the Cherry MX Red, except that they're quicker to actuate than most switches do, with an actuation point 0.8mm above other switches ***FOR GAMERS!***  Let me be the first of many to tell you that this extra distance literally does not matter at all in your games, it's just marketing BS for the most part. But, they're still a good switch. They're a retooled Cherry Linear, and that means they're pretty smooth and take well to lube.

I recommend a thin coat of Krytox GPL 205 for a good buttery switch. But if you're fully invested in the SPEED meMe, Tribosys 3203 will help out with that.
