    NCASE M1 version changelog and suggestions thread

    Not really. I posted in the original m1 thread about how i remove my mine, in response to talk about broken clips and bent panels. On the bottom of the panel (the long side), there's just enough of a lip there to catch with your fingers. Pushing (or pulling) causes the panel clips to release...

Also, the samsung bluray player i have has so far played all the file formats i have. Ive been using serviio with success for the past few days but i'll check out...

    I grabbed a few of these sata cables. Low profile connectors, very flexible and highly rated as well.

    Recommend me a device for dlna streaming.

    I wanted to avoid the software route since it would require my pc to be on all the time, but i think i will have a look into it. I'll give plex a try if serviio doesnt work for me. I actually own a g-box...its sitting in a closet collecting dust. :D I found that my samsung bluray htib played...

    Recommend me a device for dlna streaming.

    So, im looking for a simple easy way to stream video (mostly mp4) to my samsung bluray player. Currently i use a usb hard drive, moving it between my pc and bluray player whenever i have new content i want to watch. I can share it directly from my pc but dont want it running all the time. All i...

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

    All this talk about changing the panels to avoid bending and broken clips has me wondering how people are actually pulling their panels off. I always do mine from the long edges of the panels and they pop off really easily with only a small bit of force.

    What will your M1 build contain!?

    There are a few more that will fit without conflicting with anything else, check the ncase spreadsheet on the "things that work" tab. I went with a Cooler Master GeminII S524 for my gigabyte board.

    Picked up my package today. Its been sitting at the post office since last Wednesday! :eek: I was surprised that it reached my country so fast (Bermuda), it usually takes months for stuff to get here from Asia. I wasnt expecting this case until after Christmas and i have no parts for it. :o...

    Silverstone ML05 ITX Case

    The ML05 is basically the same shape but is a tad bit larger in size. Its a bit longer and that adds up to about 4.5 cubic inches larger, not much at all.

    windows 7 black login screen with cursor

    Thats right, pressing ctrl+alt+del brings up nothing. The windows key does nothing. Right clicking does nothing. The mouse pointer works fine though, i even saw the little disc accessing icon come up under the mouse when i popped in a dvd but nothing happens. Weird one this is.

    Question about image scaling on an HP monitor

    Hmm, the graphics card shouldnt be faking anything. If the res is set, then thats what the card pumps out, its up to the monitor to make use of that data and display it properly. I believe 1024 was the max res height, i'll have to check again. Oh, i just thought of an easy test; Since the...

    Question about image scaling on an HP monitor

    At work we have this dual monitor setup with an HP 20" 1600x1200 and an HP 22" 1680x1050. The screen res is to 2048x768 so that it spans both monitors. The 4:3 monitor displays this perfectly and the 16:10 monitor stretches it, but it doesnt bother anyone since that screen only displays trend...

    Problem with file transfer on WD Elements Portable HD

    So ive plugged the drive back in and transferred over 52gigs to it and moved files back and forth between it and my computer.

    ATI cards giving random "no signal found"

    Sorry... both monitors are hooked up through DVI. I'll try VGA when i can find some adapters, i know i have some in my junk box. I'll give 10.5 a try, but im pretty sure its not a windows driver issue. It happens even while in the mobo bios.

    ATI cards giving random "no signal found"

    Im having a problem with my video card cutting in and out. I get random "no signal found" prompts from my Dell 2709, maybe 2-5 times a day. They only last a second or 2 and the display always comes back with the computer still doing its thing. My card is an 18 month old MSI ATI 4850 and i simply...
