    NCASE M1 V6 info

    Looks like that's the Performance PC storefront, so could try their site too. Definitely worth grabbing at MSRP. I had to pay $100 to order one from Europe. I'm half tempted to buy a few so I can sell them close to MSRP on eBay and undercut the guy who was scalping them for $200+.

    IceManCooler pump/res combo

    Thanks! Flow is Pump > GPU > GPU Sensor > Lower Rad > CPU > CPU Sensor > Side Rad > Reservoir. QDCs are on the side reservoir so it can be removed (have to unplug the fans too). The run from the lower radiator to the CPU is a a little hard to see since it's tucked behind everything. If you...

    IceManCooler pump/res combo

    Ahhh cool. I've been ordering a few parts from Europe recently, didn't think to check there for the PSU. Hadn't heard about that Cooler Master unit so maybe I'll sit on my SF600 for a while longer and see how it compares.

    @MultiDoc where have you been buying those SF750s? I've been looking everywhere for months without any luck.

    PC shut down (BIOS setting are reset too) whenever I plug a headphone jack in the front panel

    Most likely it's just not connected properly. Double check the HD-Audio header is plugged in to the correct header on the motherboard. Could be it's connected to motherboard speaker, USB, or sys power.

    IceManCooler pump/res combo

    Does anyone know the thread size for the torx screws attaching the stainless steel backplate to the acetal? Mine is missing one and the shop on AliExpress doesn't know the thread size. edit - they are torx T9 head screws, still haven't figured out thread size edit #2 - these are very unique...

    IceManCooler pump/res combo

    That sucks. Hopefully it helps someone else in the future. Thanks for posting pics. Have you signed up for any of the EVGA lists? Guess you'd be at the back of the line now but they are slowly trickling through. Not a bad idea to have as a backup plan.

    IceManCooler pump/res combo

    It's the "Alphacool Laing DDC-Pump 12V DDC-1T Plus PWM" and the Bitspower heatsink. I'm a little concerned I may have received a used pump, as there was already some water inside it when disassembled, as shown in one of the pictures. Hopefully that's just some residual from a QC test in the...

    Silverstone SX750-PT is loud, hard to install, has compatibility issues.

    That's a bummer. When I first built in my NCASE, I used a Silverstone SFX-L PSU. It had noise issues as well - the fan wasn't loud due to spinning fast, but had a clicking noise that was really annoying. I RMAed it and the replacement was worse. Since then I've stuck with Corsair SF PSUs and had...

    Recently switched from FormD T1 to nCase M1 - what needs replacing?

    I got lucky and got a 3080. I'm really happy with it. The upcoming Ti version will be welcome, although at $300 more I'm not feeling bad about my purchase. The AMD cards are nice too, but they really can't hang in Cyberpunk if you want to play with ray tracing, which looks amazing. Getting on...

    Specs for my NCASE M1

    Assuming you are using the new version with the fully perforated side panels, you may be able to get away without fans under the GPU. I currently have a v4 and an RTX3080, and I find without those fans the case gets very hot around the GPU. If you don't put any fans under the GPU, and you use...

    IceManCooler pump/res combo

    Glad to hear you got it. I ordered on November 24 and it shipped on December 3. Looks like it made it through customs in the US so I might get it next week. I'll post some pictures once it shows up, maybe we can figure out if the res/pump top is the same.

    IceManCooler pump/res combo

    Sounds like mine is about a week behind yours 😀 Did you get the IceMan res with the pump included? I read in a couple places that version is different than the version w/o the pump, and the version w/ pump is not compatible with Liang DDC pumps. I think the product has gone through some...
