Could I ask what motherboard you are using for this build, I'm not sure whether a different motherboard would result in bad fitment. Sorry never built a pc beforeJust signed up so I could provide an update here. This is my first M1 build, previously used the silverstone sugo shoebox cases but no luck for a 3080 in there!
Ncase M1 v6.1
Asus RTX 3080 TUF OC
Installation is easy
Fits with the frontpanel connectors installed (ie all the front panel usb/audio etc)
You WILL need the MODDIY 180 degree PCIe connectors if you want to put the side panel on the case. This is a tall card.
You need the TYPE B connectors for this card.
You will probably want to order some custom shorter PCIe 8 pin cables. The ones that come with the SF750 are WAY too long and have a second daisy chained connector that makes it hard to cable manage. I ordered some 160mm cables which is about half the length of stock from Cablemod you can use their configurator to make sure you get the right thing for your PSU.
No, see this post.Can anyone tell me if this water block can be used in the Ncase?
Definitely not. I don't what others do, though.So is the 3080 TUF from Asus the only card that fits with a deshroud?
Pretty much any waterblocked card should be fine with the front I/O. Front I/O is only a problem with cards over 2.2 slots thick (AND over ~280mm long), and waterblocks reduce a card to 1-1.5 slots.Is there any 3080 variant (apart from FE) that allows the front panel to be kept when using a waterblock?
If you're referring to the old community spreadsheet, the compatibility info that was there was deleted at some point.What happened to the 1080ti compatibility list?
I still have a 1080Ti and I suspect many do as well, since the 2xxx series was not a huge upgrade.
with gpu availability being slim pickings, i'm sure the 1080/1080ti will be used a bit longer and is relevant here...
