    73   3. Reinstall motherboard
    74   4. Install standoffs (2x20mm per corner) in the four corners where the case bottom screws would go
    75   5. Install SSD and RAM
    76   6. Connect SMA cables to USRP before installing in case extension
    77   7. Install USRP in case extension
    78   8. Install the SMA cable between the USRP's 10MHz/PPS reference port and the rear of the case extension
    79   9. Install CM3 in case extension
    80   10. Install CM3 and connect the cables between it and the NUC
    81   11. Install the SMA cables between the TX/RX, RX2 ports on the USRP and the case extension sides
    82   12. Put the NUC and case extension together using the M2.5 screws
    83   13. Attach the USB 3.0 cable between the NUC and USRP
    84   14. Add rubber feet to the case extension bottom if desired
