Description

Hello PCPartpicker,

I would like to introduce you to the third revision of my NCASE M1 V3.

After having the NCASE for a year, I have changed my parts and configuration many times. From air to AIO, I finally decided to go back to an all air setup in this revision.

This is mainly used as my travel/gaming PC when going home from university. Storage is rather limited for now, but I can always add another SSD in the future if needed.

My future plan is to go for a custom waterloop. I've been browsing many water-cooled mini-ITX builds here, and would love to see how my build would fare.

Thanks for stopping by, cheers!

Edit for FAQs:

  • Temps Idle: CPU 40°C, GPU 35°C. Gaming: CPU 55°C, GPU 75°C

  • GPU backplate is the EK-FC 980 Ti/Titan X Nickel, which I forgot to add in the parts list. I picked it because it compliments the silver accents in my build.

  • Paracord sleeved cables were purchased from Ensourced.net. Colors used are White, Black, and Charcoal Gray.

EDIT: Holy Gaben! I've been featured! I want to say thank you to the PCPartPicker Community, I love browsing everyone's builds, which have also given me ideas for my own. I can now proudly say that I have been both Featured AND Awarded with Staff manirelli's Special Feature Award

Quite apart from safety, I don't think any of the airports will tolerate the idea of liquid of any kind in your PC. I can't recall a specific source on this (other than trying to look it up on the relevant Federal Gov't website, which I'll leave to those concerned), but I've heard multiple comments that it's a no-go.

The cooler was not too difficult to mount. Noctua's installation was fairly straightforward. The only con was I had to remove the fans first in order to screw the cooler to the bracket.

Hi jtrias21,

i really like your ensourced paracord sleeves, the color is very nice! I have nearly the same build (ncase, evga mainboard) .. is it possible to get your cable lenghts? So what length did you choose for the 24pin motherboard cable, PCIE, 8PIN EPS, SATA and more..

Would be very nice to know!!

thanks!

  • 43 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks! The one's I'm using for the main connectors are 30cm extensions, which I find a bit too long for extensions. You might want to try 25cm or 30cm for Full Length Replacements though.

how loud are the vardars in the bottom of the case? do you think noctua's instead would be same performance and loudness?

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

The Vardars are quiet, I never notice them. I've used the Noctua NF-F12 Industrial 2K RPMs, and the Noctua's are noticeably louder than the Vardars but the temps are pretty much the same. (Personally, I prefer the Noctua's so I'm using them now on the bottom intakes).

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

thanks for responding. I've got probably a couple weeks or more before my M1 arrives. Anxious but want to be prepared so when it gets here everything fits. If I want to get colored psu cables like yours ready made, what specific cables would I request for the different components? I have pretty much everything except case fans right now.

  • 40 months ago
  • 2 points

Very nice! I absolutely love this case, I'm sure you will like it too if you understand the limitations of the Ncase.

The length of my sleeved extensions are 30cm each. For full PSU cable replacements, I would opt for 25cm-30cm each. 30cm seems pretty long but is on the safe side. Also, the lengths depend on the motherboard placement, so try measuring the length between the sockets to your motherboard and PSU. I find that the GPU/PCI-E cables with a length of 25cm is perfect. (look up @milkyesquire on Instagram, his GPU/PCI-E length is 25cm long)

You would need a 24-pin ATX, an 8-pin CPU/EPS, and then your GPU/PCI-E depending on which card.

Where will you have your cables done? What PSU will you use?

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

I'm honestly not sure where to have the cables done. The ensourced website seems to have a service at $17.00 per cable. I may just put the system together first to get up and running then swap out the stock cables for the custom ones. I have the silverstone 600w psu for small for factor cases.

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

Hey, hmm are those for extensions? I would probably recommend full replacement cables in the NCASE to reduce clutter as opposed to extensions, once you have everything up and running.

  • 40 months ago

Also, do you have the bottom fans blowing air out the bottom or up against the gpu?

  • 40 months ago

Hey, thanks!

My bottom fans are intakes, and the cpu cooler fans exhaust the air out to the rear/left.

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

Hey, if you're around, I'm curious. How did you get the GPU and the PSU to play nice together? I can't seem to fit them both in my case, because the base of the cables coming out of the PSU are in the way. Are your custom cables really that slim at the ends?

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

Hey, the SFX-L is a tight fit, I just moved the cables at a sharp angle towards the back/right side panel area. I have since switched to an SFX, so it can play nicer with the GPU instead of bumping into it. My custom cables are normal size at the ends, but I have since redone the cables myself and made them shorter for a better fit.

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

I saw this, but totally forgot to respond to it. I just couldn't get it to fit with the SFX-L. No matter how hard I squished my cables, the GPU just couldn't reach the PCI-e slot. I ended up getting an SFX PSU (that's actually quieter and higher-wattage!) that's working great :)

Hi,

Just wondering, exactly what cables did you order from Ensourced.net? I'm interested in using ensourced cables for my M1 build. I'm a newbie and not so sure about the terminology used on the Ensourced.net website when picking my extension types.

Thanks much!

Awesome, awesome build by the way!

  • 40 months ago

This is beautiful. I have the same mobo and psu. Would you mind telling me the lengths of your cables? I found a company to do mine, but I don't know what lengths I'll need as I don't have the case in my possession yet.

Hey I love the build. Currently setting up my Ncase, and was wondering if you could help me with a few things. First I went with the Corsair SF600 over the Silverstone PSU. Unfortunately Ensourced is backlogged, but would a stubby kit + extension cables work from your experience? And second, would you recommend the Vardar fans the most for bottom intake? I got the Corsair ML120 but they get super loud once the RPM starts going up.

  • 39 months ago
  • 1 point

Hey there!

Ensourced is backlogged, but would a stubby kit + extension cables work from your experience?

He's the best in the business and recently has always been up to his neck with orders. Yes, I use a stubby kit + extension cable for my current setup. Stubby + extension gets a better "curve" or bend of the 24-pin, IMO, but the downside is it's a little bulkier with all the connectors.

And second, would you recommend the Vardar fans the most for bottom intake?

I would actually go for brown Noctua's. They are better overall than the Vardars, but the Vardars look better. You can also look into a fan curve in BIOS with your Corsair ML's, which should save you some cash.

  • 39 months ago
  • 1 point

Hm yea, I was going to go by your recommendation on full replacement cables, but was told "We do make cables for this psu, but I may suggest going with a stubby kit, then extensions. IMO this makes the cleanest look, as the SF pin out is pretty brutal, and being in a small case amplifies it." So might go with extensions I guess? I want to make sure I get the measurements right though. If I do go extension, then you recommend 30cm for CPU, and 25cm for everything else?

Currently using a i7 6700k with the Noctua D9L (with second fan) on a ASUS Z170I, and a Titan XP. The fan curve I set is working when at idle (31C), but as soon as I start gaming the case is so loud I can hear it through my headphones, and I'm pretty sure this is the corsair ML120s fault as they get really loud at around 1000RPM and go up to 2000RPM. I'm also noticing a problem where unzipping files or doing anything that pushes CPU load to even 12%~20% kicks my temps to 50C-60C for a few seconds.

Fantastic effort mate! Just wondering if you have overclocked the 980 Ti and/or CPU?

Amazing build! I actually am about to move all my stuff into ncase and have a very similar setup. Can you please tell me what size psu cables you have? Cheers!

Hey, 8pin cpu and gpu cables are 30cm and the 24pin is custom length, I believe 20-25cm.

Also, how are you directing the airflow? Is the cpu cooler pushing the air out to the back?

Hello, Intakes on the bottom, and CPU cooler pushing air out the back. Cheers!

Thank you for your reply. I'm thinking about doing the same. Are the bottom fans touching the GPU at all? Does that create any vibration/noise? Did you put anything in between? Your help is much appreciated! 2 weeks to go!

Hey! no the bottom fans are not touching the GPU, there's a small gap, no vibration or noise. :)

Thanks! Just got my case and finished the build. My GPU felt like it was bending a little. So I just put one of those rubber Storage feet in between one of the bottom fans and the graphics card and it looks great now! :)

Hey! Really love your build, and am planning to do something really similar. You said you switched to an aio and then back - just wondering why, was it thermals/noise? Thanks!!

Also, what are you studying at UCLA? I'm applying to grad programs soon haha

Also, as the backplate able to be attached easily? I thought that you needed the EK block for it to be compatible or something

Hey! Thanks! the AIO pump was too noisy for my taste because it sat on my desk in front of me, and I preferred the portability with all air cooling.

I'm studying Urban Architecture and getting my Masters :D What are you applying for here?

I'm still using it, yes. Although swapped out some parts. And I do not plan on switching to a different case, it's a keeper!

Quick newbie question: How do you hook your CPU cooler fans into your motherboard? Is there a Y-splitter for that? If so, what is the product link? Thanks!

Hey there! I use Noctua NA-SYC1 Accessory 4-pin Y-Cables for PWM Fans, they're about $8 on Amazon US. But my NH-U9S cooler already came with one set.

Confused? How is it so good? No sarcasm seriously, I don't see why everyone is freaking out over it, I have seen far better features? Why Special Feature Award and everyone hyper ventilating.... I'm confused...

Does this not have over heating issues with everything being this compact?

  • 46 months ago

No heating issues, airflow is pretty good in this case.

Thanks! I do plan on modding the side panel for a window. I heard that NCASE plans on manufacturing side panel windows as an option, but that is far into the future.

And I'm actually friends with the person who owns that watercooled M1, I'm working with him for advice as I create a watercooled M1 of my own.
