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

I bought two original M1 cases back in the beginning. The first one is still going strong. Its mainly just a regular PC rig for general work and surfing the net. The second case is still sitting in its box. I thought I would use it but so far haven't. I'm always buying a new case for my builds. Not building new rigs much these days. I do plan on one new build this year for one of my grand children. Might just break out that unused M1 finally.
