I just got my SF 750 replaced from Corsair for my NCase, pretty fast shipping from DHL as the unit I got came from Amsterdam.
Did you get any kind of tracking info for the replacement? I opened my ticket 15 days ago and 4 days ago they said they were shipping one out but I have no way to know when it gets here.

I received tracking info from Corsair Support Team via email and text messages from DHL.

I have an unused set of black v6 panels here if anyone is interested in trading their silver panels. Found some silver panels.

Added a MORA 3 to my Ncase M1 a few weeks ago. My first round of tubing was pretty rough:

I didn't really like how the tubing was so sloppy, it pulled the grommets out of the case and tented to push on the internal fittings.

It took some doing - I had to get a 2 slot bracket for my GPU (instead of a 3 slot) from EVGA

Then I got this PCIE pass through for the bottom slot and redid the internal tubing to connect to the PCIE slot:

Looks much better:

Also fixed this sloppy rad to res return loop that was just a mess of fittings and whatnot:

I added in a flow indicator and managed to not use tubing:

(yeah, I messed up and didn't move that return tube in the res - I'll drain and fix it tomorrow...

All in all, this cooling system is extremely quiet and powerful - I couldn't be happier:

These are just the OC results from the Asus AI OC module - I'm betting I can get the voltage down a little.

Gaming performance increase is dramatic.

8700K (delid, TG LM) @5.2Ghz
G.Skill 16GB 4000Mhz
RTX 2080Ti @2.1Ghz

Temps are high 30s, dipping into the low 40s

Hey guys,
I'm planning a build in an NCASE M1 (old hardware, air-cooled, already exists; case and iceman pump/res are ordered), but to continue planning some details, I need two distances:
  1. bottom of case to one-slot GPU (aka, waterblocked GPU) to see what radiators fit with what fans and how much of an air-gap is left there.
  2. closed side-radiator mount to SFX-PSU to see what radiators fit with what fans and how much space for ATX24-PIN and tubing needs to be reserved.
I would appreciate some help here very, very much :)
