Technically But Not Great

As in technically everything fits, but not great.

  • Technically the Dark Rock TF fits but it pushes on the ram more so than I would like and the heat pipe end caps are resting on the graphics card.
  • Technically the ASUS Strix 2080 Ti O11G fits but only if you're willing to take the mounting bracket off the GPU (and put it back on after it's inside the case), then remove and flip the NCase M1's power button upside-down, then flex the GPU shroud while pushing it in. Expect some scuffing.

What is great, however, are the temps (stock voltages) and the noise. At idle it's imperceptible and while gaming I can't hear it at all with my headset on.

Idle (ambient 21°C):

  • CPU - 39°C
  • GPU - 41°C

RealBench Stess Test:

  • CPU - 76°C
  • GPU - 75°C

Gaming (Anthem mostly):

  • CPU - 68-74°C
  • GPU - 70-75°C


I'll update OC temps when I get around to tinkering with 'em.
