    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    And for those of us in Australia, the RTX 2080 Ti offers an average of 31% performance improvement over the 1080 Ti (according to Hardware Unboxed) for a 100% price difference.... meh, this ray tracing stuff better be good and widely supported

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    It's one of the smallest open air 1080tis and fits very easily with plenty of room around it to work with cables and air flow/ducting etc. I changed to the EVGA because it was much smaller than my older Strix card which seemed to trap air and actually be louder than the EVGA. Bigger cards can be...

    I think that's the same one I have. I use it inside the bottom of the case rather than outside. I figure it would be less restrictive to the already small height of the feet and fits perfectly.

    Another Dark Rock TF build, by far the quietest and coolest setup I've had Next on the list is attacking that SX600G fan somehow https://imgur.com/a/81xfN

    It really is dependant on your motherboard. I also have the Dark Rock TF on a different Gigabyte board and it fits great with the fan bracket with either a 120mm fan or HDD cage. The 135mm fan sits about 6-7mm back from the side bracket so I wrapped some adhesive black foam around it to duct to...

    That looks fantastic! Makes the case look so big and empty

    NCASE M1 and RGB Lightning

    The Strix GPUs have their own little built in RGB party shaped to your parts if you're into that sort of thing. Though, the best part is you can turn it off when it inevitably becomes annoying :)

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    The one on the left is my old build, there was plenty of room to fit 2x 3.5" drives and a 120mm rad with an R9 290. I still have basically the same setup but with a 1070 Strix OC now which takes up pretty much every little bit of space down there. The drive cage still fits just fine along with...

    That is one beastly GPU!

    Sounds like a nice build. Yes many people mount their CPU + cooler + RAM to the motherboard first > mount motherboard > PSU > PSU cables > GPU I have routed a bunch of cables behind the front panel (GPU, SATA mostly) it's a great place to hide them

    Wow that is stunning coolarj10. It will be a shame to put a standard side panel back on

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    Yes I recall Phuncz testing and reporting good results, perhaps a couple of years ago. It's likely the same foam you described, I had a roll approx 2cm wide lying around and thought I'd try the concept. I used two strips stuck together to make it wider and stuck it around both sides of the GPU...

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    I have a 1070 Strix OC with no bottom fans. I just got the GPU and still experimenting, but I made some makeshift ducting for the GPU intake out of self- adhesive foam strips. It ducts fresh air from the bottom and separates the heat sink exhaust into the top of the case to stop it sucking hot...
