some pics of my build in the new M1. the build (including teardown of my old pc) took me maybe 3h, half of which was working out how to fit the H80i (poor choice by me about 12 months ago to go with a fat rad AIO).
thanks to W360 and Necere for probably the highlight of my year - the little intricacies of building in this case has been the most fun ive had in a long time. quite seriously, the more i looked the more options to put different parts in different places, and its all been just so well thought out.
pull up your socks pc case building industry, because this case is outstanding, and nothing ive ever built in matches the ingenuity or attention to detail the M1 v2 has.
4x Noiseblocker eLoop 120mm PWM fans
i5 4670k @ 4.2ghz
H80i 120mm AIO
XFX R9 290 DD (mild OC)
2x 250GB Samsung EVO SSD's
WD Black 750GB 2.5" HDD
a few notes for those building in this case
- PSU before internal SSD bracket - i could not get the PSU in around the SSD bracket with 2x SSD's mounted on it.
- take your time - a missed screw or such could mean an hour of removing parts and rebuilding in this shoebox.
A note on the SX600-G - have yet to see the fan come on, even with a 10min burn of prime95/furmark, which i was very impressed with. actually no it just came on while im writing this. a small click as the motor kicks in and then i cant hear it over the 2.5" HDD and the H80i pump. fan is very quiet.
