I’ve been wondering … does a hotswap PCB make any sense in combination with a top-mount case?
Because in a top-mount the PCB isn’t fixed to the case, it’s the soldered switches hanging off the plate holding it in place… so it doesn’t seem like there would be enough support for the PCB to push the switches in.
The reason I’m asking is I own a CU-80 which I really like as a giant switch tester, I can try out new switches and see if I like them before commiting to a soldered build.
However, the integrated plate design of the case is killing me. So I’ve been toying with the idea of putting the PCB into another case - top-mount should be the easiest to fit since there’s no need to align any holes on the PCB, only the USB port needs to be in the right place. But I’m not sure if it would work with hotswap?
