  3. NCASE M1 - High End Gaming, Photo & Video Editing PC Ncase M1 Build Log Hello Forum, I would like to start off by saying this is my second PC build, my old build will be shown at the end of this post. I decided to get a new PC as my old one was starting to get dated and i wanted a smaller system sitting on my desk. The grand total for the build including all the peripherals came to $4850 Australian Dollars. The Specs: Case Ncase M1 CPU Intel Core i7 4790k Quad Core @ 4.0Ghz - 4.4Ghz CPU Cooler Corsair H105 All-in-One Liquid Cooler Motherboard Asus ROG Maximus VII Impact Z97 RAM 16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum 2400Mhz GPU Gigabyte G1 Gaming Nvidia Gefore GTX 980 Storage 2x Samsung Evo 1TB ssd's PSU Silverstone 600 watt SFX OS Windows 8.1 64bit The Peripherals: Display Asus MX299Q IPS Ultra Widescreen Keyboard Razer Blackwidow Chroma Mouse Razer Deathadder Chroma Headset Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma Mouse Mat Corsair MM200 Extended The Build: All the parts The case Case tear down Motherboard CPU RAM Prepared motherboard Installed motherboard PSU PSU installed Cables installed GPU GPU installed Wired Up SSD's installed I ended up having to install one ssd on both sides as the sata power connector wouldn't fit in between the two ssd's stacked on top of each other. Preparing CPU cooler Hooking up CPU cooler I had to place the water block upside down in order to have the tubes on the left side to fit when screwing the rad to the case. I also decided to put some fan grills on the rad to keep the cables and tubes away from the fins on the rad. CPU cooler installed Sound dampening the front panel Applying fan filters Adding two more fans After testing the system and putting it on load the GPU was heating up a fair amount so i decided to place two more fans on the bottom of the case to bring more air to the GPU. This made a huge difference (10-15 Degrees cooler) Final Product: The Setup: Old Build: My previous build was really good but I really wanted a much smaller, more powerful system Specs: CPU: Intel Core i7 3770k @ 3.5 - 3.8Ghz - CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i - GPU: 2x EVGA Nvidia Geforce GTX 660ti OC - Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth Z77 RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz - Storage: 1x Samsung Evo 500GB, 1x WD Black 7200rpm 2TB, 1x WD Black 7200rpm 1TB PSU: Coolermaster Silent Pro Hybrid 1050 watt Final Thoughts: I hope this build log was informative about the process of how to build in the Ncase M1 as it is a very small case and hard to work in. I am really happy with how it turned out as it is much smaller than my previous PC and much faster in every way, it is also extremely silent at Idle with very low temps.
