Hello there! Are there plans on providing an ODD-only version of the M1? Purchasing The M1 and the ODD top panel separately seems to be a waste of material (and money) as I plan to use an ODD.

For me, the ODD option is one of the biggest advantages of the M1 which lots of other cases miss.
If you're in the USA and getting silver and you don't mind a Gen 1 top panel I'd sell you mine for the cost of shipping.

No, unfortunately. It would double the number of case SKUs for a minor difference, which is a logistics headache.


On another note, will you be selling top panels without ODD slot?

No plans for non-ODD top panels. Given the case comes with a non-ODD top by default, there wouldn't be much demand for it.
We'll probably be restocking panel kits around May, however, which include non-ODD top panels.


Is shipping to the netherlands possible? is not in the list.

We don't ship to the Netherlands. This is addressed in our ordering FAQ.

@Necere if you make a "XL version of Ncase" as a second case (leave the current N-case alone, it's perfect size for some people), and make it essentially a NR200 size / compatibility clone, with the same structure of current case, I think you would get a lot of sales. People would pay $100 more than current NR200 to get a "premium feel" case that does the same thing essentially (top fans support, 158mm+ cooler size, maybe even a front fan support) and absorb a lot of that market.

Any advice what I can do I have the 6.1 I’ve broken my power button rather keep it standard button without going down the custom route.

actual buttons come off the plastic pins looks broken , looks like a whole new io but non in stock I’m in the U.K. .

Cheers

Will panel restocks include the ODD top? This is a killer feature as I still use optical media almost daily.
I've been looking at smaller cases but if i can skip an external optical drive, then M1 makes a lot of sense for me

Привет.
Меня зовут Ринат. Я из России.
В Россию товар не отправляется, буду вынужден заказать дело через посредничество в Германии.
Вопрос к производителю: товары не отправляются в Россию только из-за пандемии, или это принципиальная позиция компании «ничего не отправляйте в Россию»? - продолжение глобальных экономических санкций? Не хотелось бы платить деньги и потом разбираться с проблемами - проще 2 раза переплатить и купить б / у на eBay.

I will try to translate into English for all users who do not understand Russian:

Hello.
My name is Rinat. I'm from Russia.
When trying to purchase a case through the official website it is impossible to select delivery in Russia. I will have to order a case through the shipping broker in Germany.
Question to the manufacturer. What are the shipping restrictions associated with: is it because of the pandemic or is this the company's position “do not send anything to Russia", some kind of economic sanctions? I would not like to pay money and then deal with problems, it's easier to overpay 2 times and buy used on eBay.

The ASRock H570M-ITX/ac lists a header:



Does the front I/O panel support that?

Yes.

We actually shipped some cases to Russia last month, but there seems to be some restriction on delivery to individual customers and they were all returned. So we've had to disable orders to Russia for the time being.

Oh, and be careful using forwarding services. If they're in a country that levies import fees (most countries besides the US), the forwarder will have to pay those fees on your behalf, and many will not. If that happens, the package will be sent back, and you'll have to pay shipping again if you want it resent. So it's a good idea to confirm their import fee policy ahead of time.

I think having a second, plus size case would be killer, microATX support, since nobody seems to want to make DTX motherboards, also I've seen a few utter bonkers mATX boards with workstation/server sized sockets, or I'd have asked for compatibility with that form factor. A 120mm rear fan, 280mm rad at normal thickness with normal fan thickness on the bottom and side, with option to invert the motherboard, keep the ODD, use a smaller panel to have or not have it available to use, so both panels can ship with an order. The added height of the case can be used to add a lot of drives at the front, below the ODD bracket, mounted at 90 degrees, to take up a bit less vertical space. Keep the IO, maybe add more with the added space. Also a bigger GPU bracket may be needed, it looks like GPU water blocks might get quite heavy in the near future.

And for no consideration (No one seems to be of sound enough mind to consider this anymore), a FULL SD card reader slot, along the same area of the frame as the ODD bracket goes for accessibility.

Hello! I sent an email via the online form on your website but have not heard back yet (I believe it was over a week ago). I want to purchase the PCI-E cover tab please if possible for my NCASE M1 v6.1 as I lost mine. Is there anyway I can do so?

Thank you for building an absolutely amazing case. I LOVE mine.
