I also noticed for the people saying their PCB is too big, make sure you push the plate with the pcb attached as far bottom as you can, then tighten up the screws. There is a little wiggle play so if you toghten the board with the plate pushed up, it might ďseemĒ too big.

This didnít work for me, PCB is pushed all the way in but seems to be too big around the USB port, there is no way to screw the board together with the pcb in without damaging it. Is anybody else having this issue?

I'm also having this problem... it's millimeters off,  not sure if the PCB is too tall or too long in the space between the port and the case and it hits the case preventing it from fitting properly? Has there been any word about a solution for this?

I have this exact issue and have sent pics and have been in contact with Sylvester about this issue, so far no word on a fix ;(

Itís poor form, the pcb is clearly the wrong size and he is taking no responsibility for it and asking users to shave down the pcb and potentially brick it (as one of my mates has done) as a solution. And now with the plate issue..

I had to buy small metal files and shave the plate for the space bar stabs and PCB for the fit. Even with that the body sits slightly misaligned but it works.

Poor form for such an expensive item

If anyone cares here is how I got mine to fit. I got around the stab issue by just using a ISO enter and was able to make my PCB fit by filing down the USB connector past the first mounting tabs. Everything fits and works fine now, I'm not sure about the long term effect of having 1/2 the mounting tabs for the USB connector but for now it works and no shorts. Not really happy about all the mods to get this working but I'm happy with the end result.

Plate snap in stabs solves the spacebar stab issue.

Got a unbuilt kit here locally. Managed to assemble it because of the comments here.

I only screwed the bottom part of plate so I can still separate the plate and top cover in case I want to change nameplate.
