    For those of you that might be interested.
    I recently did a build in the NCASE M1. It was an absolute heap of fun and I'm really happy with the results.The case is absolutely awesome - I take my hat off to the designers as the fit, finish and forethought is impressive.
    Yes I candied out with some RGB strips and made use of the motherboard RGB pins. I actually blocked off the light coming from the MB itself because it was overkill. I've tried to still keep things somewhat understated..

    That's a cute build and packing some serious power! Amazing how small the case is with everything in there. I took a look at your pics in your gallery, does it get hot inside the case for the motherboard, because it looked like there was no space for air flow - looked like all space taken by the components and the leftover cabling, etc? I'm sure your CPU stays cool due to water cooling & the air being pulled through the radiator from outside the case, and it looks like your GPU can stay cool as you have intake fans pointed directly at the GPU, but what about motherboard temps, 'cause case airflow looks a little dodgy?

    The good thing about that small build, you can have it on the table looking good & not taking up too much room - I have to have mine under the desk, although from the outset I set out with the function over form premise.
