I'm thinking of saving up for this keyboard, do you know what switches it supports?

Can it support 3 pin and 5 pin?

Only 3 pin switches will fit, you would need to clip the PCB mounted switches to be 3 pin.

Cherry MX switches, and MX compatible.

AFAIK it will support any MX style switch since the switch LEDs are low profile enough to be flush with the PCB. So the switches do not need to be SMD LED compatible, although using switches that have solid colored bottom housings will basically render the in switch LEDs useless. Switches like Zealios that only come in PCB mount (5 pin) can be made to work with the board by clipping the 2 plastic legs off the bottom of the switch. With other switches you'll want to get the plate mount (3 pin) variants just to make your life easier.

With flush cutters or a nail clipper.

It doesn't support enough pin types to really be viable unless you LOVE MX switches and their various clones.
Linears are for linear people. No offense if you use linears.
I prefer tactile switches, I'm reluctantly using the AULA SI-859 and my pronouns are she/her.
