The front panel of the PC can be removed easily to reveal a dust filter, which you can clean. There is also a dust filter at the bottom of the PC; it slides out easily for cleaning. Four rubber feet ensure the PC doesn't slide around a smooth floor.

Opening the IdeaCentre Y900 RE is very easy, and cable management is very well done to ensure unobstructed airflow.

Replacing or upgrading the drives or any other devices is very easy to do through tool-less brackets and slides. If you want to remove the GPU or add in other GPUs/PCI-E devices, Lenovo offers a tool-less PCI-E bracket lock system.

The Lenovo Y900 RE uses a single 16GB DDR4 DIMM instead of two 8GB modules, supposedly for more upgrade potential (more available slots), the downside is that you won't get dual-channel memory support without a second 16GB module. The GTX 1080 is attached to a bracket to ensure it does not droop. The CPU cooler should support a decent overclock. Lenovo has also added an RGB LED controller, since the PC itself has RGBs built in all over the place.

Lenovo has an ingenious system to ensure that the heavy GPU does not droop down and damage the PCI-E slot or get damaged in transit. There is space for extra GPUs to utilize this anti-droop system. The RGB LED controller mentioned earlier supports four sets of LEDs and uses a custom connector that attaches to the motherboard.

The NVMe PCI-E 3.0 x4 SSD is a Samsung PM951. The wireless card is a Killer Wireless-AC/BT 4.0 1535. The thermal paste application is more than enough and shows solid spreading. The VRMs for the CPU are cooled by heat sinks, and there is room for adding in three more sticks of RAM and one more full-sized GPU.
