I figured I will try to do as much as I can until the sleeving arrives.

So installing the PSU seemed to be a great idea!

Here I just placed it down to see what it would look like.





And here it is fully installed with screws:







Inside in the light! Man it looks awesome I won't lie haha.





The entire time I'm putting this thing in there the only thing I'm saying to myself is "this guy didn't miss a single thing".

Props to Case Labs for a job REALLY well done, so far with everything.

Tonight was a busy night! Hope you guys enjoy this!

Obviously I removed the tray. I think Case Labs did an impeccable job of implementing a tray. It slides in and out on a very nicely designed tray bar, both top and bottom. I didn't snap any pictures of the lone tray but here is the installation of the motherboard onto the tray:



Here is the case minus the tray. You can see the tray on the bottom left of the exposed case. It honestly came out very smooth and went back in even smoother:



With the motherboard installed:







With the soundcard:







When I was installing the GPUs, they were both already attached via the EK bridge. I made sure they were both somewhat lined up and then gently pushed to make sure they went in simultaneously. Then I added pressure and heard a loud CRACK. I got very nervous because I couldn't see the lower GPU. I didn't take anything back out because I didn't want to do it again and have that loud noise. So it could be broken but heck, I have no idea. With the GPUs installed:









Nice overhead view, this is what it will look like inside the case with the case standing upright:







The only difficult part of the entire installation, and I don't blame Case Labs for this because it happens on almost every case and it's due mainly to the cards themselves, is the inserting and screwing in of the screws. The easiest way for me to do this was to put the screw in at literally a 45 degree angle and then apply a lot of pressure with a screwdriver and screw. It then kind of evened out and straightened while pulling the cards outlet with it. Here's my final pictures for the night





Apologize for the sweatpants!





All in all, I must be grateful to the case for this. The motherboard tray was fantastic...made installation of the motherboard SO much easier. Legit. Plenty of room inside to install everything without any modding either. Just absolutely incredible stuff.

Thanks so much for viewing! All comments are welcome. Please feel free to criticize anything as well. I'm totally open!

Unfortunately as seen in the following pic, I overlooked the fact that the GPU blocks the RAM clip. Thus, I will be removing the GPUs and adding the RAM when it arrives.

Probably no more pics until Monday or Tuesday depending on when the RAM gets here. Sorry guys!

the bottom ram clip shouldnt matter, it shouldnt move. only the top clips move so i think installing ram would be easily done. ( from what i can observe )

unless you are pointing to another problem

Is this the truth? Cause if so I'll be so happy haha.

Does anyone know for sure if that's the case?

try it out yourself.

Asus began implementing this feature awhile ago and i searched for your R3E on newegg and saw that it had the same design. You should be fine

Well my RAM isn't here yet. It won't be arriving until Mon/Tue (it's the only thing holding my build back at this point) so I can't test it out.

I hope what you say is true

Thanks mate! Rep
