Sorry if this was answered but I wasn't able to find it searching this forum/thread.

I preordered a V6 and I'm going to get custom cables that were fitted for the M1 V5. Will there be any issues with cross-compatibility?

Thanks!
I hope there is no problem, as I also ordered custom cables 😅

I was told that the old position for the PSU is still possible, so I think there should be no problem. However, in principle it is now possible to have a new position for the PSU which would provide more space for CPU cooler (like a C14S with 140mm fan).
So, if we order v5 cable, it should work but that new position won't be possible. Ideally, shops like pslatecustoms will make a new option for that new mounting position. I guess that will happen once people start receiving the new case :)

Everyone recommends optimum techs’ videos like we haven’t watched them 10 times over already
Well in this case I don't understand why you even come here and bother us with your questions... The guy has the same GPU you are planning to put in your PC and he did all the research and gives you the best solution... Also don't expect 10 degrees temp drops between an M1 V5 and a V6 for your GPU...

Honestly seeing your question I could only assume you hadn't seen that video, so hold your horses a bit, I was just trying to help you. If you start mocking people that try to help you when you ask questions, then don't be surprised if no one will want to help you next time...

I suspect that the additional perforations on the v6 side panels will help exhaust more hot air from axial fan GPUs, and further delaying heat soak. If you have some sort of active exhaust on the side and/or rear, you could potentially get up to 10c of additional GPU cooling. Purely my speculation. I'll know more when my v6 arrives in September :)

It was more of a joke but okay

I'm a little confused about the preorders. According to Necere's answer they are not yet open. By some chance I could order one, in the last weeks, the VISA card has already been charged. Will the order now be cancelled if the preorder is open soon? I don't want to order 2 pieces by accident if the regular preorder starts.
At least I'm looking forward to the case to build an AMD Linux system :)

We had one round of preorders opened last month, which sold out in about a week. We plan to open another round of preorders at the end of the month/beginning of September. There have also been a few preorder slots opening up sporadically due to cancellations. Either way, if you already got a preorder in, you're set and don't have to do anything. Your order will be in the first batch of cases scheduled to start shipping next month.

Yeah, unfortunately I only became aware that res was using the 80mm mounting holes when it was already too late to make changes to V6. Sorry if that ruins anyone's plans.
Sorry if this was already answered, but are the 92mm fan holes and water cooling tube ports in the same positions as before? If so a 92mm to 80mm bracket of some sort could be 3D printed? Was thinking getting one printed just for this.

Yes.
