2022-11-27: Testing configs before we finalize the spec.​

We know someone will try this (*dual 280 HWL 280GTS on 3-Slot MSI Suprim X GPU), so we wanted to test it first.



2022-11-20: M1EVO Interest Check | Survey is live (URL).​



2022-10-23: Testing an air-cooled build with 30XX GPU + 4090FE.​



We have not received the 4090 GPUs yet, so test-fitting Thermalright SS135 on Noctua A12x25R + MSI 3070 Suprim X + ATX PSU. FWIW, Micro-ATX motherboards will fit, and there is space for 25mm thick fans between the Top Panel and GPU.[/URL]

4090 FE *could fit via direct contact with minor tweaks to the design and a custom 12P GPU cable. But, of course, this will also depend on the back of the motherboard.

2022-10-17: M1EVO is 40XX friendly.​



Most people would agree that 40XX GPUs are big, so we made the necessary changes. As a result, M1EVO should support all of the 4090 GPUs and most 40XX GPUs without a PCIe Riser.

A list of updates:
1. M1EVO production unit has arrived
2. We are still waiting for a few 4090 AIB GPUs to arrive
3. We will test the fit and thermal of the bigger 4090 AIB GPUs
4. We will send the production unit for review
5. Then start IC or preorder on ncases.com

2022-09-28: M1EVO updated for 40XX GPUs.​

Thanks to those who voted on the Discord poll about volume vs. compatibility.

We have been busy tweaking the M1EVO for 40XX. At this moment, the 40XX GPUs that we know the dimensions for, should fit.

We expect to have the latest prototypes in two weeks, and if everything works, we plan to launch shortly after.

2022-08-28: M1EVO is almost here.​

In the image below, from left to right, T1 V2, M1EVO, M1 Classic V6.1.

The final specs will depend on the new Nvidia 40XX GPU and their AIB partner GPUs. Because Nvidia Founders Edition GPUs tend to be smaller than the AIB partner GPUs, we plan to finalize the specs when the GPU spec is confirmed.

Highlights:
1. Smaller
2. Better Compatibility
3. Better Build Quality
4. Better Price
5. Working on Better Availability



2022-07-23: Updating or, more appropriately speaking, modernizing the M1 Classic.​

Many of you guys are familiar with CNC machining on high-end mechKB. However, traditional cases made from thin metal sheets feel outdated and cheap compared to CNC machining.

Following the FormD T1 project, M1 is modernizing to CNC, and we are calling it the M1EVO.



We finished teaser renderings. We will provide more information later.

I absolutely LOVE that NCase M1 style front panel and that front I/O layout. This should be the perfect upgrade for my current NCase M1 v5, which I was thankfully able to extend my usage of with a small 2-fan EVGA 3060 Ti. I'm really craving a top-tier GPU for my next build though, so I hope this will be able to accommodate. Personally, I'm really not limited on desk space, and wouldn't mind at all if it ends up being longer and a bit taller than the OG M1 for maximum compatibility with larger GPUs and air coolers.

Any plans for color options? Really hoping to see White personally.

On the SFF Gurus Discord W360 mentioned that on release there'd only be 2 colours, black and another (titanium or silver). We did hear that the FreeFlow collection (https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/freeflow-collection-by-ncase-streacom.17834/) is planned to have a white version.

Yes, M1 back to life. Will M1EVO panel compatible with the old one?

Oh wait, smaller? I really want a Ncase that can put RTX4090 FE inside......
