They just finished the current batch so you might have to wait a few months. Necere (one of the creators) said that they have some extra that they made just in case so I would go over to Hardforum and send them a PM asking if you can buy one of the extras.

Azzatek's new CSAZ-103 is out on Newegg now.

I'd also recommend Silverstone's ML07.

I think that M1 case is the one for me. Compared to the rest it looks amazing.
I'll just have to try catch it when it is actually on sale.

Have you considered the Rosewill Legacy series? They're gorgeous brushed aluminum cases, in the same vein as the M1.

My personal favorites being the V4-B and the W1-S.

Thee W1-S looks good. But I don't know anywhere in the UK that ship Rosewill cases, or ship to the UK.

The cases are made by cooltek. - http://www.cooltek.de/en/powered-by-jonsbo/w1/101/w1

Amazon UK


Do note that the W1 isn't on the small side of a miniitx case.

NCase M1 owner here, it's an excellent and well designed case, but I wish the designers added an extra half inch in every dimension, it would make installation of parts a lot easier.

This is my second ITX build, and here's some advice:
1. Make sure the motherboard you buy does not have any IC's or transistors on the back near the mounting holes. This will interfere with backplate installations!
2. Depending on the case you get, the CPU socket placement in the motherboard will be very important when it comes to accomodating heatsinks. You don't want something too close to the GPU slot, yet you don't want something too high up that may cause a heatsink to bump into the top of the case :\
3. Dual-fan non-reference cards (e.g. Twin Frozr by MSI) will dump heat into the case.. while it cuts down on noise, the other components in your machine will heat up a little bit if the case isn't well ventilated.
4. The only SFX power supply worth while is the 450W Silverstone SFX (bronze and gold model available). Hoping more high quality SFX units are released.

If you're seriously considering the NCase M1, take a look at this compatibility thread for mobos and heatsinks: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AuQJbc_Aru20dDdLbmJWMjZYSXJvNWNOVzJkdkJPTWc&usp=sharing#gid=10

Also, the current offerings of ITX cases are fairly limited, Corsair will be releasing another ITX case soon (in addition to the current 250D):
