Just an update: I installed a Zotac Trinity OC 3080 in my Ncase M1 V6.1 without issue. Motherboard is an Asus Strix B550i. It is very very close to the front panel, but no issues closing and no scratches when I re-opened to check. Front I/O is all still plugged in as well.I have just made an imgur gallery that compares Daandris' photos to my own.
We are both using the NCASE M1 V6, and we are both using the power button module at the front. But if you compare the photos, his clears the power button module and mine doesn't. This puts my entire GPU on an uncomfortable angle that is probably damaging to both the card and PCIe slot. There is no way that I could personally say that this card fits in the case.
Does anyone have any idea why we have had different results? It would be good to get to the bottom of this to keep the community informed about which cards fit.
Hey guys, I was going to buy the Asus 3070 Tuff for $1150 (in Australia) however i've recently been provided with the opportunity to buy the RX 6800 (non-XT) reference card for $1100.
The $50 to me doesn't mean much, so consider them the same price for the purpose of this question - are there any views on which of these cards would be the better buy, particularly when considering they're going into the NCase M1? I haven't been able to find much information on how the 6800 performance in terms of thermals and noise in the M1, but I know the asus tuf cards have been performing really well.
I'll be using a U9S with an extra 92mm fan for the CPU, and two 120mm fans under the GPU (15mm for the 3070, 25mm for the 6800), and possibly another 120mm mounted on the side if needed.
