Very nice!

I tried the MC preamp with the TDK switcher and as long as the preamp board wasn't near the primary-side and heat sink bar it was as quiet as the linear bench supply.
With yours at right angles and on the far side of primary it ought to be quiet as well.

I like the RJ-45 bulk-head female-to-female termination. I would never have thought to use a RJ-45 turn-around. That's very clever.

You might want to reverse the jumper shunts - they're upside-down from they way I usually install them and will be easier to pull if inverted on the header with the large end on the top. They're easier to grab with needle-nose.
