The Small Form Factor (SFF) concept is taking the PC industry by storm. Cooler Master is no stranger to the SFF market with the releases of the Q300L V2, Masterbox NR200 series, and more. Cooler Master newest case goes beyond those designs. Introducing the Cooler Master Ncore 100 MAX. A case that will allow anyone to build an SFF PC that can beat any console on the market while having the same footprint as an Xbox Series X. With an included AIO CPU Cooler and PSU, the Ncore 100 MAX will be on your SFF case shortlist! Many thanks to Cooler Master for supplying this case for review.

That is such a neat case.  Really great review of it too.  I'm surprised how much power you were able to pack into that tiny little thing.  And the layout, the layout of that case is so unique.  You were right, nothing at all like most ITX cases.  That looked fun to build!  🙂

Thanks for sharing. I'm currently using an ITX board in an ATX case, been waiting to make the jump to a smaller case, but not a cramped case, for a long while. This case won't be the one (just personal preference) but I appreciate the reviews and I agree that ITX doesn't need to be a <10L box.

Thank you for reading the review! I wrote this review as an SFF noobie for the SFF noobie. I jokingly claim I am a long time member of the "Big A** Case Alliance" and I never understood the hubbub of SFF cases until this review. While I won't be surrendering my membership in the BACA anytime soon (Lol), I do truly understand the merits of SFF builds.

Thanks bro! It was a joy to build in. I am thinking about replacing the 12900KS for a 13900KS or 14900K. As for the GPU, all of my 3090's are watercooled, so I can't add those. The only air cooled cards I have are the 6800 XT and A770 16GB. This PC build is definitely going to be in the background as a set piece when/if I create videos.
