The Build and Finished Product - Continued

Completely assembled, I noticed the issue with the positioning of the tray assembly. The sides allow for two levels to install the tray. What you will find is that the optical drive racks hit the HDD rack, making the lower level installation impossible. If you remove them and install the tray in the lower position (top position pictured) air coolers are no longer an issue.

I thought I might be able to not hit the handle up top if I installed the tray in the furthest back of three positions. While it did leave room for the cooler, the weight tipped the T60 over in this position.

Installing the components was a breeze, and with a modular power supply and a bit of routing the wires under the motherboard, things end up looking very clean.

I had a tower cooler installed, but the T60 kept tipping over when I would try to get these images, so I swapped it out for an AIO water cooler which sits nicely in front of the motherboard. If I had the T60-1 it would have made mounting this much simpler.

Now the board lined up on the tray fine, and the GTX 470 lies up with the expansion slots, but I found an issue when I went to test things out for a couple of days. For the extremist benching his parts, the audio connections likely are being hooked up, but I did find that the orange connector gets blocked on this board by the mounting of the expansion slots.

Figuring I wanted to run some testing, I installed everything that is housed in my spare desktop. As you can see, there is easy access to everything. Depending on how you wire the T60 you can easily remove the four thumb screws and pull everything other than the power supply and hard drives in one quick stop.
