    Replacing graphics card for original NCASE M1

    Thought I'd post a brief follow-up report on what I did, in case it is helpful to anyone else searching through the forums on this topic. This post testing fan positions in the NCASE M1 was *extremely* helpful. Big thanks and shout out to that poster. The attached gallery was super helpful as...

    Ncase instruction manual

    Hi there, I can't answer as to a manual, unofficial or otherwise. But the combination of these two posts for the original M1 were very helpful when I was building my own: Pictorial Parts List by Necere Example Installation Order, consolidated by Prava It's possible that things have changed...

    Replacing graphics card for original NCASE M1

    I'm going to replace the GTX 760 (blower style) video card in my original NCASE M1 with a GTX 1060. I have two fans mounted on the side that blow air into the case. Not seeing a lot of blower-style cards on the market, so am considering one of these: EVGA 1060 SC ZOTAC 1060 SC Mini Will I have...

    Sorry about that. I don't read these forums as frequently. I updated the original post with new information.

    Love the promo video! I updated the original post with current status. When the new bag becomes available, I'll be glad to update the original post again with a link, if that's helpful.

    The new version of the bag looks great! I'm sorry to hear we lost our first maker, but not too surprised it was unsustainable for her. I'm glad that the original project led to Waha's version, which sounds like it will price out well and can be manufactured in larger quantities. Great to see!!

    Been a while since I've stopped by the H-forums. Nice to see the continued success of the Ncase M1. Onto a 3rd version, I see! I certainly continue to be happy with mine. Regarding bag stuff, I really like AFD's H tag and the hard shell case that were posted. Nice options, those. I don't...

    There didn't seem to be overwhelming interest at the time, in the [H] logo, so it wasn't pursued. AFD, that luggage tag is a great idea! :) I recommend showing that to Kyle, as he was interested to see any results that involved the [H] logo.

    Yeah, I also suspect a long queue. I am still waiting for mine as well. I don't think Liz has as much production capacity as she (or we) would like. I hope to get mine before the winter weather really sets in because it will be more weather proof than my current solution.

    Hey AFD! Great! I'm glad to hear of another bag reaching a happy customer. Maybe this means mine will be on its way to me soon as well. I'm eager to receive it. The grey interior looks fantastic. Those are really nice pictures you took. Wahaha- I hope your meeting goes/went well and that the...

    NCASE M1 Softshell Carry Bag for community

    Now that is a really intriguing idea. I like it. That said, regardless of style or type, I recommend extra reinforcement/padding at corners. You probably already know this, but the corners are always the weakest part of a case, or the part that tends to take the most damage. That is true for...

    I'm still waiting on my bag as well. I've been super busy this summer, so haven't been on the boards, and haven't been in contact with Liz. Just curious, AFD, if you had received yours yet? Since, we suspected we may be in the same batch. Glad to hear those of you that have received the...

    I'm not sure what batch mine is in... the original shipping estimate I received was end of May. I haven't received mine yet, but I also told Liz she could prioritize others higher than mine. Glad to hear a second batch went out. Sorry to hear that production is slower than expected, but...

    I noticed that Liz did increase the shipping time 4-6 weeks, while making more units available. Which is exactly as expected. To the best of my knowledge (which is scanty), W360 is still planning to outsource to a larger manufacturer, but last I heard he was interested to make a roller bag.

    NCASE M1 Softshell Carry Bag for community

    Firstly, thanks so much for posting your review. I'm really glad to hear that the most important feature (padding and protection) is satisfactory and that overall it is a positive purchase. I will certainly pass on the identified issues to Liz for consideration in future versions. I'm not...

    I heard from Liz, who replies that she would be happy to stitch up a sample [H], using her machine's embroidery function. This seems possible since the [H] is standard Arial font. However, her priority is fulfilling the existing orders, so she wouldn't take time for that until June. I also...

    LOL. :) So Kyle gave permission for us to get ourselves a [H]ard label for our bags as long as we aren't planning to sell it. He says it's just arial font, so that's simple enough. Not sure what shade that red is though. So, here's the thing - any label or patch typically needs to be...

    I don't think we ever pursued a [H]ard label, just talked about it. I suppose I could look into it. I assume the first thing we need is permission from Kyle. I'm really glad to see folks jumping on the bag bandwagon. :) Honestly, from my own searches, it really seems like there is a dearth of...

    Nice! I really look forward to seeing how the zippered pockets turn out for you and Adamantium. Thanks for letting us know, Phoenix, and I agree, AFD. I asked Waha360 if he thought it appropriate to send a message to their NCASE owners list, as that seems the best way to let the owners...

    I have some updated information to pass along: The Longer bag is available to order on Etsy now. Links are below (also updated the first post of this thread). Be careful to select the correct product when ordering. The photos are still the same for all the bag listings, but be aware that a...

    I just checked in with Liz and she says she will continue to offer the bags as long as there is interest. If the order queue starts to get very full, the time to delivery will increase.

    Nice find on the monitor. I could be interested in something like that, myself. Sounds like it might probably fit in the front long-side pocket? I suspect it is too tall (14.8 inches) and wide (10.96 inches) for the narrow-side pockets. I don't have access to the finished bags, or I would...

    Do you mean on top of the bag? Yes. If you mean inside the bag with the computer - I wouldn't. That is not a pocket at all. The default configuration of the deluxe model comes with 3 pockets and on the rear it has cinch straps for carrying wide and long items.Those are demonstrated holding a...

    Thanks for your patience everyone, while we figured this out. The dimensions posted on Etsy are accurate. It will not fit the reservoir. There is less than an inch of compression ease and that ease is needed for lifting the computer in and out. It’s a damned good thing we remeasured the bag...

    I don't think we did, and no you probably shouldn't. Longer answer about length... On post #105, I measured the internal length at 38.25cm (15 inches) There was concern that the fit should be more snug. When I asked what was needed for the M1+ Reservoir, I was told that if the PCI bracket...

    Yes, it has the same amount of padding. Good suggestion, I'll look into doing that. Edit: Done. Bag specs are listed there too.

    She sent me these packed-bag pictures from this morning to post to the forum. They will eventually get onto Etsy as well, but that may take longer to update. There *will* also be pictures soon showing the computer inside the bag, but they aren't available quite yet. We took those this morning...

    Well, I can't speak authoritatively for her, but yes, AFD, I'd guess those requests are fine. I'm requesting flat flaps (vs cargo style flaps) on my small side pockets, as well. Without the big cargo pockets or big flaps or shoulder strap or feet, I'd guess the basic model for you? She will...

    Air Carry-On SFF: Tips & Suggestions?

    /agree. Sorry if I was unclear. I was recalling studies simulating accidental drops. Accidents happen. Overhead compartments open occasionally and things fall out. :-/ You are probably right that one would never want to check it, regardless of type.

    Air Carry-On SFF: Tips & Suggestions?

    If you determine that it will be allowable as a carry-on, you could see if this bag-maker would be willing to make a custom sized bag for you, now that she's listed her product. She may be too busy with orders from NCASErs, but it's worth asking. She's mentioned the possibility of offering...

    Silverstone SST-SX600-G 600w Gold SFX

    Can't believe I'm already making a wishlist for future build. Quieter and cooler will be at the top of my priorities, so I'd agree with AFD that a higher end fan would be ideal, even if unlikely.

    An initial limited production run is now available for purchase. Her upcoming schedule of projects is heavily booked, so I cannot say if any more of these will be offered or not, beyond this initial listing. It looks like she chose to post bags at two price points, rather than list options with...
