    Hello! I have a Ncase M1 v6.1. And a new EKWB Quantum Vector Dual Evo (2080 super) is too wide for the case simply because of their large terminal block.

    The waterblocks for EVGA Hydro or Alphacool GPX-N seem to be just fine on width inside my case. But my Asus 2080 Super Dual Evo v2 GPU is a weird duck, and the EKWB is one of the waterblocks to fit it.

    So am considering modding to reduce the width of the terminal. It's like a small aircraft carrier is sticking out from the ITX motherboard. Have you attempted this type of surgery before -- for this brand or similar that can provide insight into what it takes? Do you know of any direct replacement for an EKWB terminal?

    Any help / ideas are appreciated. Here are some links . . .

    Is it possible to install the gpu vertically? That would seem to be an easier fix.

    Do you have a photo of how far it sticks out?

    Removing the Terminal outer cover will give you a tiny bit of extra space.
