Now the M1 is back for another round of pre-orders, with the price set at $185 for the microscopic, all-aluminum enclosure. The catch is that once again the enclosure ships directly from the OEM (Lian Li) in Taiwan, which means that import duty and taxes will be extra.

You may have been one of the (approximately) millions who read our review of this fantastic little enclosure, but just for old time’s sake you can always read it again! The review features many photos of the case interior and exterior, as well as a some build examples to give readers an idea of what to expect before committing to the case sight-unseen.

So what’s different with the 3rd version? Here’s the official change log from the hardforum page:

  • Braces added to bottom corners of chassis for increased rigidity/decreased probability of wobbling
  • 0.3mm decrease in side and front panel height
  • Extra QC for wobbling & panel uniformity
  • Changed model ID plate to read “V3.0” in place of “V2.0”
  • SFX bracket raised 2mm and flange trimmed for better SFX-L support
  • Additional motherboard standoffs added for compact mATX boards (226x173mm max w/SFX bracket)
  • Slightly increased CPU cutout size

The M1’s dimensions are just (HxWxD) 240mm x 160mm x 328mm, which translates to 9.45″ x 6.30″ x 12.91″. The pre-order is currently open, but no offical word on when the newest production run will be finished and shipping just yet.
