Thanks for the suggestion Paul.  Actually I do use ProGold on all plated connectors.

I have a suggestion about the PCB headers.  It would be nice if you could send with each new K3 kit a small tube of Caig.  www.caig.com  
I recommend treating each PCB header pin with Caig >> “DeoxIT” >>  in the K3 build. 
This will keep contact resistance low; lubricate the pins; and most importantly prevent Oxidation. 


For plated connectors, you may want to use Caig's ProGold instead of Caig's DeoxIT.
