I never got an estimated shipping date. I put my order in July 22 and it got canceled because of the free shipping. I then put another order that same day and chose the $65.00 shipping but never got an estimated ship date, I ever checked the emails to see and nada.
It should be in the email with the subject line "Order #xxxxx confirmed" right under the product description.

Whats everyone planning to put in their NCASE?
Upgrading from a 2500k so it'll be a nice jump in performance.
  • CPU: 3600 or 3700x (Leaning towards 3700x for compiling code, longevity)
  • Cooler: C14S
  • RAM: LPX 32GB (3200 or 3600MHz)
  • GPU: RTX 2060 (I already own one)
  • PSU: SFF600
  • Mobo: ? (Probably not going to splurge on a mobo with a Type-E header, but undecided)
  • Storage: 1TB WD Black NVMe
  • Fans: All the Noctua Fans
  • Other: pslate or make my own cables? Vandal switch?

Almost all the components now. The Asus rog strix rx 5700xt is on preorder and trident z Neo is coming soon. Need to wait on the bootkit too.
Hardware:
  • ASUS X450-i
  • AMD Ryzen 3700X with stock cooler for now. C14s later.
  • G.Skill Trident Z 32 GB 3600MHz Ram c18
  • Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB
  • Samsung 860 evo 1tb m.2
  • Samsung 860 evo 1tb 2,5 inch
  • Asus Rog Strix AMD RX 5700 XT (will be hard to get it in, but I found some good tips and tricks for it to fit with shroud still on)
  • 2 Noctua Nf-a12x25 when the Black comes out and the new ventilation are not enough to game at pure silence
  • Corsair SF750 (2018)

Making this pc to replace my 8-9 year old x58 pc with 4,0ghz xeon x5650 with 12gb ram and gtx 970.
Gaming at 1440p with high refresh on the amazing Aorus AD27QD and wooting one keyboard + Logitech g602 mouse.
Will post thermals when I'm done :)

You should check the order confirmation email from sfflab.
It contains an order summary section, and next to the M1 I have an expected shipping date: September 20th

For me, it is going to be old gen. :p

Hardware :
Second hand 8700K @ 4.9Ghz
Second hand Titan X Pascal (bought 2nd hand 2-3 years ago. it will be a transplant from my current system)
32Gb Tridentz 3333mhz CL16 (found a - 50% deal on it :))
Aorus Z390i (planning to upgrade my CPU to 9900K when it will become cheap :p)
SSDs: 1TB and 750MB 2.5" drives (I already have them, then the question is how many I can put)
Custom cables from pslatecustom

For the cooling :
Noctua C14S
Noctua fans at the rear, side and bottom

Hi friends.

Somebody could give me distance from PSU to side panel?



¿Is posible install an Alphacool XT45-240 + 25mm fan in side pannel?

Thanks!!!

Probably around 65mm.

There is 130mm clearance for the CPU Cooler up to the side bracket, and a PSU like the SF600 has a height of 65mm.

So there is 65mm left, which seems to be in agreement with the picture: there is space for another PSU.


As for the radiator, the recommended spec is 35mm height. That must be why :D

Nice, could you share the tips and tricks on how you plan to install the Asus Rog Strix AMD RX 5700 XT? I was actually looking at that card until I saw it wasn't compatible. Thanks!

A 45mm Radiator is not going to fit. 35mm is the max and even that is pushing it. You still need to route tubing and some mm of air to breathe come always handy with a rad and some fans.

From the PSU to the fan bracket is 87.5mm in V6 (to the actual side panel is 5mm more).

Probably around 65mm.

There is 130mm clearance for the CPU Cooler up to the side bracket, and a PSU like the SF600 has a height of 65mm.

So there is 65mm left, which seems to be in agreement with the picture: there is space for another PSU.

You're not taking into account the stack-up height of the CPU socket+motherboard+standoffs, which add up to about 20mm.

I recommend <=35mm for the radiator so there's enough room for tubing and airflow. Also depending what you're doing for the pump, you might need the extra clearance there (the Apogee Drive 2 is fairly tall, for example). That's where you would consider the 130mm total height available for CPU coolers, since it also applies to a CPU pump/block+rad+fans.

What's your plans @Callthemandem?
I was thinking x570i 3900x and 2080ti although realistically I’m not sure if it’s the best idea haha

2x Noctua NF-A12x25 (bottom)
1x Noctua NF-P12 (side)

Up until now I was set on going for the Noctua NH-U9S with an extra NF-A9 PWM FAN for CPU cooling, but it seems like everyone else are going for the C14S now. Has anything changed in regards to this with the v6 compared to previous Ncase M1 revisions? Should I reconsider?

It's hard and you need some technical insides to not mess up your ncase or card, it's easier to remove the fan shroud and you with 2 fans underneath, but This guy explains it well!

I have the NH-U9S with an extra NF-A9 PWM fan on my i7-9700K in my V5 M1. I get full load temperatures of 72C, so it's a decent cooling solution.

what did use as a load test? , was it cinebench or aida64 or just gaming in general ? :)

45-minute Prime 95 (26.6) small FFT. I also run long sessions of Handbrake without exceeding 72C. My CPU is undervolted a little (-0.025 V offset).
