NCASE M1 opinions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been looking for the right itx case for my current components. The Manta that I've been using for a few months is awful at GPU cooling, awful!

I like the was the NCASE is setup and should work great for me.

With that said I'd like to read what you fine people think aboutthe M1 before I drop $230 to get this shipped to me 😀...ouch that's pricy!

Got mine a little while ago, building in it next week. Build quality is great, weight is way lower than what you would expect, and the functionality is good as well. If you've heard people ranting over Caselabs here, it's comparable.

Do you have a build log? What are you putting inside of it? How long did it take to receive it once it shipped?

Ncase is great man. GPU Cooling is fine if your willing to sacrifice HDD's and hav a non reference cooler. I personally got a reference 1080 so I could load a HDD under it and not have to worry about intruding on the fans of a aftermarket cooler.

It is a little tight to work in but that is to be expected from a 12L case.

The potential for watercooling is also fantastic. You can literally get 2 240M rad in it.

This is one of my favorite cases that I have used to date and I have owned a few CaseLabs, hope that gives you a reference to build quality.

If you got anymore questions feel free to ask.

+rep!

Thank you!

Someday soon when Zen is here I'll definitely go with an AMD itx solution and I think this is the case I want to use for that thumb.gif
