The top has a slide out radiator bracket which makes it easier to fill the reservoir, the problem with the top is the restricted airflow. The Swiftech aren't too bad because they don't use really high rpm fans. What happens is that the air is not able to exit through the top so it pushes back down around the radiator and gets fed back into the radiator heated which increases temps. What Evolv owners are doing is blocking off the open areas around the radiator, most use either cardboard or tape. Like I said the Swiftech don't do too bad but the EK Predator with the higher speed fans gets really bad performance if you don't block off the open areas.

If you haven't ordered yet you might look at the Pro M, not as good looking of a case but the cooling is better and interior layout is almost identical.

Edit: You can also go with a 140mm radiator in the back with the Phanteks.

That was mainly my concern with the Evolv ATX. Fortunately though, @ciarlatano and @doyll both have had experience with this case and pretty much helped me decide on it. Here's my thread about it: http://www.overclock.net/t/1627438/best-bang-for-the-buck-mid-tower-atx-case/0_10

You're right about blocking off the unused space for that case. And regarding the H220X, if you check its manual on the website, Swiftech actually allows it to be mounted on the front just not on the bottom where it will stay upside down. With that in mind, do you still think I should mount it on the top because of the radiator bracket alone?

Would it be overkill, if say, I put another 240mm in the loop?

another option is the inwin 303. the amount is space is amazing in that case. if you are using a matx it has room for 2 360mm rads and one 120mm.
for cheaper than the enthoo. its 99 CAD atm

Here's my thread on the topic: http://www.overclock.net/t/1627438/best-bang-for-the-buck-mid-tower-atx-case/0_10 and they don't recommend the inWin 303 there. The Swiftech H220X won't fit at the top as well.

the in win 303 is a fairly new case, but i will be happy to test the compatibility in a week when i help my buddy upgrade his computer, but from the space available at the top it will easily fit. it fits 360mm rads and the mounting holes should not be problem. i will post again when i get a chance to test the setup on his computer. i forgot to mention that not everyone has had experience with all cases, just because the enthoo has had a huge following doesn't mean that you should limit yourself to others suggestions, take a look at builds and see if it fits your aesthetic. thats how i built my corsair 350d and inwin 805 systems, even my corsair 400c (server build) was designed with that in mind


this is the case in question though. with a core 2 quad setup inside

Great! Thanks.

Yeah, I'm actually open to suggestions. It's just that I love the looks of the Evolv. I also like the InWin 303 but I don't like the fact that the rad on top is mounted sideways blowing into the other side. Where does the hot air escape from there? I also don't know if I like the PSU being on top of the case. It just feels weird to me given that most cases now have it at the bottom.

EDIT:

When do I use QDC's in a loop? Are they recommended? I heard they are very restrictive.

And how do you mount the H220X in front?

Hi all, for anybody wondering if the H320 x2 can handle a 1080 ti along with a 7700k with them both maxed out overclock wise then I can confirm 100% that it's not a problem at all.
I was going to make a custom loop because everybody online from what I researched was saying It couldn't be done on a 360 rad and that the loop wouldn't be able to handle it and get too hot the second I pushed anysort of overclock but I thought I've got everything I need right here so I took the plunge and gave it a go anyway and oh my gosh it works better then I could of imagined.
The CPU is @5.1ghz and the 1080 ti is +150 on the core and +500 on the memory and the CPU isn't going above 69c under full load and the gpu is maxing out at 45c.
I hope anybody that wanted to do the same and fit a 1080ti to the h320 x2 gets to read my post and it puts there mind at ease because I promise you the H320 x2 can more then handle it. I'm over the moon.

How do you guys (what orientation) mount your H220X in front of a case assuming I'll be adding a reservoir?

I'm not sure the H220X can be mounted in that position. I may be wrong though, maybe it can't be mounted in the rear of the case.....

It is possible as it can be mounted vertically. There's this way or this but I don't know which is the more preferred one assuming I'll be adding a res. I miss Brian from Swiftech frown.gif

Yeah he has been offline for awhile now. At least with him here we could get answers.
