2023-09-18: M1EVO collection.
2023-07-05: M1EVO 40XX Without Riser Installation Verified!
We had an extra 4080 FE today, the same size as the 4090 FE, so we double-checked the fit. It is fine and easy to install using a 12VHPWR 180D angle adapter.
Some of you want to avoid adapters and prefer custom 12VHPWR cables instead. It might be possible with a motherboard standoff hack, but I will leave it to you guys to figure it out because it's not officially supported.
2023-06-16 Update: M1EVO Round in Silver Color !I wouldn't say I liked M1EVO Rounded in Black color. I wanted a Silver color with more WOW Factor than the Titanium color. I also wanted M1EVO Angled and Rounded to look better in person than our renderings. I believe the mission is accomplished now.
The following pictures show M1EVO Rounded in Silver color, M1EVO Angled in Black color, and FormD T1 in Titanium color. The photos should reflect M1EVO's size relative to the T1. I also added some pictures of the Gigabyte Aorus 4070 Master to show a big GPU inside the case.
Regarding the launch date, we have a few more renderings. After that, I think we will launch this month and hopefully next week.
2023-03-01: M1EVO Side Panel Survey!The only unknown in the way of M1EVO launch is the Steel Mesh Side Panel. So we would like to ask the community for feedback.
The current M1EVO default Steel Mesh Side Panel, despite being 1mm thick like FormD T1, still has a jello-like pop. Here is a video of the problem - .
We can either 1) delay M1EVO by 45 days to fix the mold. 2) launch mid-March. Please give us your feedback by voting 1) or 2) by voting on our discord channel.
**Regarding the Aluminum Mesh Panels for M1EVO, we are not able to manufacture it atm because it's thickness to width ratio exceeds current manufacturing capabilities.
2022-11-27: Testing configs before we finalize the spec.We know someone will try this (*dual 280 HWL 280GTS on 3-Slot MSI Suprim X GPU), so we wanted to test it first.
We have not received the 4090 GPUs yet, so test-fitting Thermalright SS135 on Noctua A12x25R + MSI 3070 Suprim X + ATX PSU. FWIW, Micro-ATX motherboards will fit, and there is space for 25mm thick fans between the Top Panel and GPU.[/URL]
4090 FE *could fit via direct contact with minor tweaks to the design and a custom 12P GPU cable. But, of course, this will also depend on the back of the motherboard.
2022-09-28: M1EVO updated for 40XX GPUs.Thanks to those who voted on the Discord poll about volume vs. compatibility.
We have been busy tweaking the M1EVO for 40XX. At this moment, the 40XX GPUs that we know the dimensions for, should fit.
We expect to have the latest prototypes in two weeks, and if everything works, we plan to launch shortly after.
2022-08-28: M1EVO is almost here.In the image below, from left to right, T1 V2, M1EVO, M1 Classic V6.1.
The final specs will depend on the new Nvidia 40XX GPU and their AIB partner GPUs. Because Nvidia Founders Edition GPUs tend to be smaller than the AIB partner GPUs, we plan to finalize the specs when the GPU spec is confirmed.
2. Better Compatibility
3. Better Build Quality
4. Better Price
5. Working on Better Availability
