    Advice Ncase M1 Build Advice - Ryzen 3950X, 2080 Ti Founder's

    @Dawelio, that's true on the information about the 3080, I was in the same boat and ended up opting for an RX 5700 XT for the time being. As for this pandemic, I would have to disagree. I received my M1 within a week and have an ASUS ROG Strix Z490-I Gaming with an i7 10700K and was easily able...

    Advice NCASE M1 v6.1 Ryzen 3700x w/ NZXT Kraken X53. Should I be concerned with these temperatures?

    Hi omz, I'm not familiar with the temps on a 3700x, however, just for comparison, with a Noctua C14s and two 120mm x 15mm Noctua fans my 10700k is running at a base clock of 4700 MHz with temperatures between 33 and 48 Celsius at idle. Your load temps seem pretty good for the CPU, just...

    NCASE M1 Comet Lake Space Heater Workstation and Gaming Build for CoD MW + Warzone

    Yes I used a Noctua NF-A9x14 92 x 14mm fan as I was going to use an AIO and the 25mm version would not fit, plus I couldn’t get my hands on a 25mm Chromax Black one within reasonable time. However, after checking, you could definitely fit a 92 x 25mm with the C14s installed. As for the C14s...

    Well, today is the day... The cooler came and fit like a glove on the Z490-i Gaming, it's like ASUS designed the MB around the mounting system for this cooler. The mounting bracket fits straight into the groove on the VRM heatsink. BTW, this cable mess is temporary. I ended up mounting on...

    Just a quick update before the air cooler arrives. As you can see, the PCIe 8 + 8 cables on the GPU are partially tucked away underneath, I did this because the side panel doesn't fit otherwise. Because it looks so awful, I went ahead and ordered some CableMod 8pin PCIe cables to replace the...

    Yes for the double sided ones you’d want to remove it, in my case the 1TB 970 evo plus is just single sided and the bend was there regardless if the pad was removed or not.

    NCASE M1 Comet Lake Space Heater Workstation and Gaming Build for CoD MW + Warzone

    Well, crazy turn of events. The EK-AIO 240 doesn't fit on the ROG Strix z490-i gaming in any orientation. 😩 So I ended up looking at all the datasheets I could find for AIO's and it looks like none will fit. Instead, I have now ordered a Noctua NH-C14S and two additional A12x15 chromax...

    NCASE M1 Comet Lake Space Heater Workstation and Gaming Build for CoD MW + Warzone

    So all parts except for the AIO are in and I have installed all the parts on the MB. As for the MB it's nice and hefty, must be the heat sinks, and the processor is kinda heavy as well, not sure if that's normal or because they increased the thickness of the IHS on the 10th gen intel CPU's. I...

    [Advice] NCase M1 Build Advice

    So I just test fitted the 92mm fan in the bottom of the M1 for curiosity's sake. You can definitely mount 92's in the bottom although you will have to mount them to the bottom shroud/intake panel instead of the fan/rad mounting rails. As for the number of fans you can mount in the bottom, you...

    Yes the SF600 is a little cheaper, just asking because you've got a pretty powerful build and might improve the efficiency as well as give you long term headroom. The M1 fits 120mm's in the bottom, I'm putting in 2x Nf-A12x15 Noctua's not sure if you can actually mount the 92mm's in the bottom...

    [Advice] NCase M1 Build Advice

    Nice build specs, will be building my M1 this week based on an intel 10700K and RX 5700XT. You should be able to fit all of it in there, just curious though why you are looking at the SF600 over say the SF750? And also why you decided to go with the NF-A9x14 fans vs 120mm's in the bottom? You...

    NCASE M1 Comet Lake Space Heater Workstation and Gaming Build for CoD MW + Warzone

    Just another update, Even with all the pre-orders places early, some of the vendors I ordered from weren’t able to get any stock, so what I ended up doing in the last few days was cancelling some orders and placing new ones with vendors carrying stock for the parts that I need. As for my order...

    Ncase M1, 3900X, 2070 Super

    Nice. Pricing is definitely ridiculous and variable as well, I saw the i7 10700K anywhere from 570 euro at amazon to 470 ish at Caseking in Germany, but luckily I was able to get it at 429 locally so probably a better deal than the Strix z490-I gaming. The local vendor told me they are...

    NCASE M1 Comet Lake Space Heater Workstation and Gaming Build for CoD MW + Warzone

    I wanted to give you all a quick update today as I was able to get a pre-order in today for an i7 10700K. It was actually less of a rip off than what I was expecting. I also received some goodies today including the SF750, this thing is a tiny BEAST. Real heavy too. And a G-PRO wireless was...

    NCASE M1 Comet Lake Space Heater Workstation and Gaming Build for CoD MW + Warzone

    I will definitely share the results. From what I've heard, as long as you run the pump from the pump header on the MB and dial it in correctly, and run the fans off of a separate header it should outperform the Kraken's. But we'll have to find out if that's true. I will also be testing AI...
