For anyone trying to assemble their kit:
1. the sockets for the switches don't have a lot of solder, so you'll need to press on the socket from behind when installing a switch, otherwise you may rip the socket off the pcb (like i did).
I would careful in the future whenever changing the switches.
2. I also needed to loosen the screws holding the small usb-c board, because as installed from the factory; the board pressed on the main pcb in a way that caused the "F9" "-" "P" ";" "?" & "WIN" keys to not function.
Just ran into this (bullet 1). Ironically, I had to solder jumpers because the pads ripped right out. The current hot-swap inserts are not properly designed to handle the install process. There really should be through-pcb mounting vias for these, similar to how the USB-C connector is soldered on the included daughter-board.
