Spotted: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 engineering sample inside a case

A photo of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 installed inside a case was posted at Asian forum ChipHell. The card seen on the picture below is a pre-production model with an all-black design. The final retail version has some titanium elements. When seen inside a case, it dawns on you how big the RTX 3090 Founders Edition truly is. It's a 313mm long card with a width of 138mm, so not a model for small cases.
Unlike the RTX 3080 graphics card, the fat brother occupies 3 slots on a motherboard. A photograph from Chiphell appears to show RTX 3090 is a mid-tower case with ASUS Prime motherboard installed. It looks like the sagging problem has been resolved by supporting the card on an SSD cage. A dual 8-pin to single 12-pin power adapter is also pictured feeding the power to the card.
The location of the 12-pin PCIe power connector doesn't seem to be ideal though. As you can see on the photo below, it makes cable management really hard.
