    Air Cooling Ncase M1 - Silent and Powerful

    The Silver Arrow 130 is a great little cooler. It cools just as good as the C14s. I had both but went with the C14s for the looks.

    Perfect Air Cooled Ncase M1 Ryzen 5900x RTX 3080 FE

    You said you settled on B550 motherboard? Which brand, model did you go with? My current build is a 3950X on an Asrock Phantom Gaming B550i board (because it has the type C header) paired with a deshrouded Strix 2070 super. I originally purchased the Gigabyte B550 aorus pro ax itx board, but it...

    Air Cooling Ncase M1 - Silent and Powerful

    NO, the C14s on ANY ITX motherboard (B450, X470, B550, X570, etc.) will need to be used with a 120mm fan in order to keep the PSU in the stock position. I have seen someone cram the stock 140mm fan in there and leave the PSU in the stock position, but it causes tension on the cooler and bends it...

    Air Cooling Ncase M1 - Silent and Powerful

    The C14s is the superior cooler. The U9S is good though, if that's what you really want. If you check the SFF Reddit and search for u/M1AF he has a spreadsheet that will show you all the different cooling combinations you get do for the M1. It's an extensive amount of work that he did. But the...

    C14s + Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro AX issue

    Sorry for the late response. I don't have pictures of the overhang of the C14s on the Aorus board. I swapped it out for the Asrock B550i Phantom Gaming ITX/AX board, and everything fits just fine. Of course the socket placement on the Asrock board is more central compared to the Aorus board...

    C14s + Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro AX issue

    UPDATE: Fixed the issue, had to tear the board apart just to get to the battery in order to reset the CMOS. Trying to short the jumper on the board just doesn't work. Also, the board + C14s is not compatible, no matter how you mount the C14s on the B550 Aorus Pro AX it won't fit. The vertical...

    C14s + Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro AX issue

    Mounting the C14s vertically on the new Gigabyte B550i Aorus Pro AX motherboard results in the end of the heatpipes making contact with the GPU backplate. This is also with the bend of the C14s heatpipes pointing up which Noctua says not to do. I'm not sure how much of a temp difference that...

    V6, 9900KF, Thermalright Silver Arrow, 2080 Super with Accelero III

    That's really weird that you're 3600 + SA130 isn't performing well. I stress tested both the SA130 and the C14s on my 3700x and they both performed extremely well under load. It's been awhile but I was seeing temps with Prime 95 running for over 48hrs peak at like 82-85c. So both coolers are on...

    NCASE M1 V6 info

    Anyone built the Ncase with a 3950x using a C14s cooler? If so, what specs / temps / noise are you getting? I'm thinking about swapping out my 3700x and putting in my 3950x but I'm not going water cooling or AIO.

    Concept FormD T1 EVO (aka T1 V2.0 and P1)

    Thanks for the replies guys. If I decide to go back to the AIO route I might pick up one of these cases when they become available and transplant my 3950x system. After seeing how much free space I have on my desk with my Ncase M1, I don't ever want to go back to full-size. :)

    Concept FormD T1 EVO (aka T1 V2.0 and P1)

    I really like the all mesh sides to both of these renders. I would buy either one as long as they were compatible with whatever hardware I had. I love my Ncase M1 v6 and these renders look amazing! I'm more of an air cooler guy myself, having the Noctua C14s in my Ncase build. The only issue I...

    Yeah, sorry, I was just getting caught up with the thread and noticed that.

    Help needed - assembly

    First page of this post - Necere put the manual at the bottom of the post. This lists the screws and what they are used for. https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/ncase-m1-v6-info.10687/ As for the orientation of the PSU, the way you have it is fine. I've also seen it flipped around to...

    Scarlet Ncase (V6)

    So you had them anodize the frame as well, not just the panels?
