Inside the Define R3 Black Pearl Continued
The motherboard tray offers a large CPU access hole with rubber trim over the rolled steel edge. There are six random sized wire management holes and eight tie points. The whole right side of the tray is also open to give you even more options for routing cables.
The floor of the Define R3 has room for a shorter PSU, around 150 to 160mm long, will allow the use of a 120mm fan in front of it. If the PSU is any longer, it and the cables can impede on a fans placement of operation.
Inside the back of the R3 we again see the bold contrast of the white fan and expansion slot covers. We can also see that the expansion slots use thumbscrew to secure any and all cards in here. Lastly you can also see the PSU gasket to keep vibrations here to a minimum.
Behind the motherboard tray there is right around 20mm of space, but as you move passed it to the left side, there are plenty of holes in the back of the hard drive assembly and the top to bottom gap will allow you to get wires anywhere you want to in principle.
As for the wires you need to connect to make the front I/O and case functional, here you have them. There is the USB 2.0 connector and the HD and AC'97 Audio on the left. In the middle are the power, reset and power LED connections. That just leaves the native USB 3.0 on the right.
