Introduction


I would like to thank NCASE for supplying the review sample.


We usually include a few thoughts on the chassis about to be reviewed, but as the NCASE brand is essentially build around this case, it seems more appropriate to give you the backstory on the brand itself before we proceed with the review:
Following a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2013, the limited run first edition of the M1 has been well-received by both users and reviewers alike. At just 12.6 liters in volume, it's one of the smallest available mini-ITX cases capable of housing high-end hardware. Thanks to its innovative design, the M1 achieves an unprecedented level of performance capability for its size, able to accommodate GPUs up to 12.5" and 240mm liquid cooling radiators.

The NCASE team is a two-man collaboration that began in late 2012 as a project to design and produce a compact, high-quality, performance-oriented small-form-factor PC case with input from the community.
