Wow, I wonder how I can get my hands on that. It seems to be about 7 inches, just about an inch clearance in a L3 Itx case. I need that, but too bad the price is too high for me

Hey, I would like to join this club with my water-cooled M1!

It's been two months since I first saw this case and saw how much potential it had, one month since I first received it, and now it's been a good 24 hours since the completion of my first custom water-cooled build. This is a long one, so I'll spoiler it to save some people the bandwidth!

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Save for the glorious reservoir it doesn't look much different, until you look inside...



I'm using a PE 240 rad, along with EK's Supremacy Evo CPU & universal VGA blocks.



The efficiency of space in this case is just unreal, it is perfect. I love how Necere thought to make two different locations for the power cord to go, as otherwise it would prevent the radiator from fitting. So much thought went into this, and to see such a small-scale project succeed like this is just amazing.



Just look at how tight that tubing is. Needless to say, as a first-timer putting this together terrified me, and still does. redface.gif



Speaking of terrifying, here is the lower section, where the loop connects to the pump, the GPU block, and then goes back over to the radiator. To say this was difficult to put together would be an understatement. I needed to have a fan underneath the VRM section of the GPU or else there would be no active cooling for them, and so the pump had to be on the left side, which led to the intricate arrangement you see before you.



I'm hiding nothing with this one. Here's the pump. It's a DDC 3.2 PWM, and if it looks like it isn't screwed down to anything, that's because it isn't. This was, unfortunately, the only way I could make it fit while still being able to close the case panel. I got this pump as I was worried about space constraints, but now I'm thinking I could get away with a custom-top version and then be able to use compression fittings as opposed to the built-in barbs. Maybe then I could actually secure the thing properly! Despite no screws attaching it, it is very much stuck in that position, and for now at least is not moving anywhere.



Here's a picture of the full loop. There are some very long runs to get from the reservoir to the pump, and then from the GPU to the radiator.



I initially thought these could be done around the side of the GPU, between it and the side panel. This is why I couldn't do something like that with this build, and why I had to go with a universal GPU block instead of a full-cover one. If this was a standard-height GPU, these things would be possible, but that is for another time.

For those scrolling by though, here's a picture of the finished product, in all its glory:



And That, is why I love the Ncase M1.

I also have a watercooled M1 and I love it, but it does have some limitations. One of which is GPU width. I have a MSI GTX 970 with a Bitspower block and it just fits, the block actually just touches the side of the case. I am getting ready to upgrade to a GTX 1070 and I will definitely be using a reference style card so I don't have width issues.

My next GPU will be reference as well, as long as they don't skimp out on power connectors. Even two 6-pins would be enough, just not one 6/8 pin. If I wanted a 1080 for example, I don't know if I could go with a reference card and be happy with it, for that reason alone.

Yeap timerwin is correct. 313mm x 129.31mm x 246mm

Yeah, the mounting solution is very hacky, but it works since gravity is only pulling down. The HDD cage is a mess of odd bracing and mesh, I couldn't find a way to get all four mounting holes to line up with existing metal. The basic principle is I drilled out the rivets to get the cage out, cut the bottom of the cage off, and then used the top to mount. If you get two 90 degree C13 adapters from Amazon, you can route the power cable and squeeze one of Scythe's super thin fans above the PSU and keep the two 120mm exhaust fans. I'm actually running my case with a single 120mm exhaust fan and it's doing fine, but I also have the blower GPU and a big 140mm fan pushing air around on the CPU heatsink.

Let me know if you want specific pictures, I'll gladly disassemble a few things if you want to see screw placements or whatnot.

I saw someone else on OCN use the back of the old Hadron PSU as a cable extension to keep the plug and switch on the back, but I'm probably going to relocate the PSU yet again when I hammer out my watercooling idea.

It is what it is.

So i'm working on photo graphing my process for converting Dell SFF 755 Optiplexes in to SFF gaming machines capable to low pro dual slot video cards like the 750 Ti. as well as giving the PSU a slight bump in efficiency and a bit of reliability via massive cooling improvement
