Preparing the hard drives for their position in the cage is really the only screws I needed to use other than those used in the PSU and main board mounting. These trays have rubber grommets that accept those "special" screws that keep the drives isolated and vibration free.
Fast forward and everything is in its place. With very little time and effort the case overall is clean and appealing by design. The extra lengths of wire work really well and allowed me to get everything connected with no issues what so ever. Even with a full ATX motherboard and one of the larger coolers on the market, there is a lot of room for additional things such as plumbing or lighting.
Getting a little closer to the motherboard to show just how well all the wiring hides and how much space is left to allow the fans to stir up quite a bit of air to aid in the natural convection of the heat.
You can see I did in fact use the first slot with the backplane and left a couple of slots before installing my backup drive. I found that this is just as simple as slide in and lock, it couldn't be any easier.
For me here is where things got a bit messy. I had routed all the motherboard wires and it was clean, but once I attempted to power things up, it got a bit sloppy. This is my fault, however. The PSU I chose to use is a bit short in the wire length department; this makes getting all the connections clean a bit tougher. Everything does still lay out of the way of easy closure of the rear door.
The bottom of the RV01 has plenty of room for bigger PSU's. I had to flip this one upside down and I still was able to make it work, but the 8-pin CPU plug just reaches this way. Trying to keep the vent in the floor free of impedance from the extra wire wasn't an issue either. There is plenty of excess space to neatly tuck the extra wires on either side of it.
