I really like the Trego and have a rather unique use-case question. My workstation is currently utilizing the TRX40 Aorus Xtreme and its included single-slot NVMe PCI-E riser card; is it possible to fit 2 risers to utilize said expansion card with a dual-slot GPU?

Checked it and yes, can use 2x riser cards in this. Will be a tight fit on the cables, but will work. Will post a picture of our prototype system with two cards installed.

Haha is there an SFF case where cabling isn't a tight fit? I look forward to the picture and hopefully getting my rig downsized for more easy travel with less than 100% work-from-home likely starting in the not too distant future.

Is it possible to flip the case, so the radiator is at the bottom. Or in other words - so the HW can face the other direction? My PC is on my left :)
