Crowd funded mini-ITX CASE spotted in Indiegogo

Two members of the HardOCP forum’s “Wahaha360” and “Necere” recently posted a thread, but this time they were showing off the design of a mini-ITX case.
The guys teamed up to make an ideal case after months of work being put together by HardOCP and LianLi engineers who are behind the manufacturing of these. The case is named: NCase M1.
The specs are not yet finalized, but as of now, it’s a 12.59 litre box with dimensions of 160 x 328 x 240mm. The case can support standard ATX power supplies and the M1 can let you mount triple-mount graphics card up to 12.5″ long.
The team needs to raise $3,000 via Indiegogo (already raised $2,545 at the time of writing) with 27 days left. The reason why they need funding is because they need to pay for 2x M1 prototypes from Lian Li, plus the cost of import duty, processing fees, air shipping, insurance and testing equipment.
These are the specs as of now:
|NCASE M1||Technical Specifications|
