Description

Used for 1080p 144hz gaming, absolutely fantastic. Doesn't best my old 4930K in workloads but in gaming performance it's way better. I might just sell the GPU in a couple months in anticipation of Vega, but right now the build has served me very well. I'm also probably going to get rid of the NCASE M1, and pick up the Fractal Design Nano S instead, since I absolutely love that case. Whenever that happens I'll make another build and showcase everything moved over. Hope you enjoyed my build!

Whaaaa? Not to knock the Nano S but I thought this case is prettier. Sorry to see it go.

Seeing them both side by side, the M1 looks a bit cleaner to me, but I personally prefer the spending cash, and functionality of the Nano S. Plus I've always wanted a case by Fractal :)

What makes you wanna move to the fractal design from the ncase?

Him saying that brought a tear to my eye ;( lol

Radiator Support, and sound dampening. Plus its alot cheaper, and to me I find it just as visually appealing as the Ncase :)

kennyboy12 1 Build 2 points 25 months ago

Fair enough! Though, I have a radiator in my ncase build. Noise hasn't been an issue at all but that is a very personal preference and so are looks. That fractal is pretty nice!

So you thinking of selling you're Ncase

Apollonir submitter 4 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

Yup, I already got the Nano S, it was on sale for 50 bucks on amazon and with a 25 dollar gift card it brought it down to just 25 bucks for a case that I think is gorgeous.

Cool. I've got a fractal node 202 right now, and love it. Used to have the panteks evolv ITX which is similar to the nano s and liked it but wanted something smaller. It's weird to see someone leave the Ncase, not something we see often.

Would you consider selling me that ncase m1, i'm in Australia and when I build my computer, I would like to build in that case if you would consider shipping to Australia.

Sorry, I've already got someone near me taking it off my hands. You're probably better off getting it from their website :/

For anyone interested here is my first benchmark run on the system with Ghost Recon WildLands on the ultra preset. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdgJQO3MfKY

just amazing... so clean, i read some other coments about the reasons you are changing your case, fair enough tho.. silent operation its always a nice feature. pras bro, looking dope... +1 .. would ok if you add some setup photo?..only if you want tho

Apollonir submitter 4 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

Lol My setup is still really messy but maybe I'll try soon lol.

JheyoDELperu 1 point 25 months ago

oh,.. alright^

Don't do it!! Keep the Ncase....

You can totally make the radiator situation work...

Apollonir submitter 4 Builds 1 point 24 months ago

Already built a new system haha, you can check it out here! https://pcpartpicker.com/b/fx6scf

Never heard anyone say they want to leave the M1 to go to a Define :X

Apollonir submitter 4 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Sorry for the late reply! But money was a factor as well, the M1 was great, but I wanted something quieter, and that would show off my parts better! And again, the Define Nano S was like a fifth of the cost of the M1 LOL!
