    Reverse Ncase Power Cable

    @Necere Any news on the reverse cable? And also the locking plastic thing for the side panels? Im waiting to order these spare parts! Should I contact sfflabs and ask them?

    NCASE M1 V6 info

    There was 2 spare ones, but there was also two empty slots in my case when I got it shipped, so I immediately inserted them there. No extra spare for me unfortunately. Please ask sfflab to get them on stock or give me a way to order them somehow. Anyway just wanna say thanks for this amazing...

    NCASE M1 V6 info

    So I just managed to break one of the side panel sockets. See picture. So right now I want to buy some spare sockets and a reversed power cable. Are these gonna be available for me to purchase from sfflab @Necere? I know you have said the power cable may come into stock soon, but what about...

    9900k in Ncase M1

    So im back with some more info. I have learned two things the past few days: 1. Using Small FFTs as a benchmark is not very realistic, especially not with the latest Prime 95. My point is that no real world scenario would have resulted in 90c+ temps from what I could tell, so it would actually...

    I was able to fit 2 SSDs at the front with only a slight gap. See pictures.

    9900k in Ncase M1

    So I just repasted the CPU, this time with more paste. The cooler was fitted very good with no obvious obstacles in the way. Unfortunately the results are almost the same for benchmarks. Havent had the time to play BFV yet. Software CPU temp (max) GPU temp (max) Cinebench R20 (2 times in a...

    9900k in Ncase M1

    Thank you for the input, I will definitely try repasting it with more paste. I suspect this as well, maybe my motherboard (which isnt the most popular) gives it too much voltage. During a 5 minute Prime95 (v26.6, Small FFTs) run I get 1.314v on the highest core. I know I saw 1.35 something in...

    9900k in Ncase M1

    Thanks for the input @JoShmo. I run it at stock so far and I have underclocking on the agenda in the future, but first I wanna make sure everything is installed and working as expected as a baseline. I will look into the thermal paste. I am used to put a pea in the middle and let the CPU cooler...

    Nice build! Would appreciate it if you could report your temperatures in the 9900k thread I set up here: https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/9900k-in-ncase-m1.11617/ Im struggling with cooling my 9900k.

    9900k in Ncase M1

    So I decided to spend this evening simply reversing every fan I have and then run the tests again. So with this new setup I use the two bottom A12x25 as Intake, I reversed both the CPU fans for the C14S to blow fresh air from the side of the chassi straight on to the CPU/motherboard, and I...

    Gigabyte Aorus Z390 I Pro WIFI with Ncase M1 and NH-U14S

    I ended up going for 9900k with C14S, and it did fit my Aorus motherboard perfectly. Made a thread about my build here: https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/9900k-in-ncase-m1.11617/

    Silver or Black NCASE M1?

    I got my silver a few days ago and I can say that I am still very happy with my choice. Wouldnt want to change.

    9900k in Ncase M1

    So I finally got my case this monday, what a nice piece of hardware this is. Was really fun to build in, challenging compared to the big ATX cases I am used to. My initial plan was to get a 9700k, but I got a very good offer for a new 9900k that I could not refuse. So here I am, trying to air...

    NCASE M1 V6 info

    So I ran into another issue with the internal power connector. I am not able to fit the backplate power connector when my Noctua NH-C14S is connected to my Gigabyte Aorus Z390 I PRO WIFI. I can bend it somewhat but not enough to make it fit. Any ideas where I can find a internal power...

    NCASE M1 V6 info

    Just realized I should have ordered a right-angled internal power cable from sfflabs when I ordered the case (its gonna be a tight fit with the PSU in ATX mode), but now its missing from the shop? No trace of it! I need a right-angled internal power cable. Is it available someplace else? @Necere
