To my knowledge, this does not support optical switches from the likes of Gateron etc. They only support 3-pin mechanical switches as they use Kailh hotswap sockets.

Optical switches utilize a different socket type that use light for actuation rather than the mechanical connections. Thus is will not fit the conventional PCBs for mechanical switches, neither will it fit the 3-pin hotswap connection in the Drop ALT. Clipping would only work if you are trying to use 5-pin switches (e.g. Zilents V2) on this board.
