Description

i recently started working and thought what better way to spend my hard earned money than on a tiny build with big specs. i wanted something i could bring between countries, so small enough for a backpack. after a lot of research and wanting a full size gpu i came across the ncase m1 (which for some reason isn't listed on here. this is my first ever build and coming from a four year old laptop it was an amazing upgrade, despite the cases size it was rather easy to work in though my cable management in the case is pretty terrible the combination of components is able to run almost everything i throw at it, in full 4k.

i may have went overkill with how many fans i used but i knew that building in an itx case, airflow is important to vent such a small space. you may also notice the screen is the wrong one. i currently have the 4k monitor in Australia waiting for me to return ;)

two things i would change; are the power cables, these are hard and difficult to manage with their length custom cables would have done much better and i may do some in the future and also the noise, its to be expected with all the fans but it does get a little noisy, perhaps switching out the industrial fan would help but for now i don't mind it too much and temps are good

(ill include build photos soon as i don't currently have access to them)

One man's overkill is another man's adequate cooling. I think there's no shame in making use of the maximum number of fans your case can support. If I could break the laws of physics to cram more fans in my smaller case, I would. As it is, I do my best to live within my means (i5-7600K with only minimal tweaking and blower-style 1080). You've got a great build; hope it serves you well for a good long time!

My latest and greatest is here which is an upgrade of this. It's in a short-run SFF case, much like your NCase (though far less popular). It's builds like ours that I'm trying to find for inspiration in small form factor innovation and performance-per-liter.

I have the same monitor, building my first PC...does the nvidia card play well with it?

Reading on the lack of freesync on Nvidia cards has be on the fence and leaning towards a Vega 56 but like the prices better for the 1070ti and other GTX cards
