NCASE M1 V3.0: An Incredibly Optimized mini-ITX Chassi!

Description from NCASE:

With its sleek, subtly-faceted brushed aluminum front panel, the M1 presents a refined, minimalist face to the world. An angular, arched cutout exposes the front USB 3.0 and HD audio ports, flanking the central power button, whose two-color LED glows crisply – but not overly bright – when powered. Side and top panels are perforated with symmetrical ventilation areas, ensuring both visual harmony and proper system airflow.

Fully toolless exterior panels allow easy access to the interior, while keeping the clean, smooth surfaces free of the visual clutter of screws or fasteners. The simple upward-facing slot at the front of the top panel provides discreet access to the neatly integrated mount for a slim slot-loading optical drive.

The M1 sets itself apart with its unique combination of high performance capability and exceptional flexibility, in a deceptively small and appealingly understated package. Coming in at a svelte 12.6 liters in volume, the all-aluminum chassis has the proportions – and features – of a much larger case. Looking like a conventional tower case, but on a much reduced scale, the M1 has a footprint smaller than many “cube”-style small form-factor cases. It’s compact enough to pack into a carry-on, while the featherweight, yet sturdy, aluminum construction makes it easy to travel with.

This case would make a nice goyiming station if coupled with two (or even just one) ASUS GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU Mini
