[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 1210

post #12091 of 18656
Thank you - good info! I really dont mind having it hang over the CPU block, a couple of 90 degree angles is not that big of a deal with a good pump. I think I prefere the larger radiator-surface over the inconvenience. In my opinion radiators that have fans pushing air into the case is sub-optimal, because it really heats up the entire case. This is one of the major problems with my current mATX, it gets really hot and my 950 Pro M.2 is cooking. I could always have all fans push air out of the case, but this gives a lot of underpressure, dust buildup and actually also more noise (since the air has to find other ways into the case to feed the fans). So I think I will go for one large radiator in the top pushing air out. And then just normal fans in front to push air in. I could always go for a larger case, giving more room and options for radiator mounting, but I really dont need the large case ..

There is 330mm of radiator space in the Evolv-iTX, EK Predator is 295mm. It will fit even with a rear exhaust fan.

@KS81 I have literally just finished watercooling in my EVOLV mATX, yours looks a lot better than mine biggrin.gif

here is a pic I took yesterday of it, had to move the pump though, as it was rubbing on the PCIE screws and making an awful noise when the case door was shut. Its now on top of the GPU and inbetween the GPU and CPU tubing wise, looks awful but its soooo much quieter!



EDIT: Feedback appreciated!

How do you refill and bleed your loop? Looks like you only have one port on top of res, and thats your inlet. Good job fitting your res/pump combo. I could never fit that with SLI so I had to go standalone pump and res. It took some cutting and ofc the 3,5" bays are gone. The only tip i would have to you is try not to cross hoses, and shorten them. What is that hose going upwards from the front rad?

Edit: Get a multiport top and a internal pipe in the res.

To fill with my PC on its side I just took the tube off the lid and the lid itself off the res, put the tube in a jug so any liquid going through the system would work its way into the jug (slowly filling and getting rid of bubbles, both of which were helped by the fact both rads were in their side) then with another jug filled the res, cycled the pump on and kept filing it swapping over the jugs when they got full... you make it seem like it was a bit of a hassle now I had to explain it all! rolleyes.gif

I too had to cut away to get the darkside rad in as it was too wide, and the thickness of the top rad ahs also limited me in res/pump mounting. The crossed tubes by the radiator don't bother me so much as they are not visible. Also I had to get rid of the inlet at the top as it is as it wouldnt fit, a multi inlet top defintely wouldnt fit!

However unfortunatly it now looks awful...

Here is what it looks like most of the time


And the true mess!


Not really 100% happy with it but I need it functional for now

I finished my all my exams and work for this semester and the next semester doesn't start till Feb so I will try and sort it out before then and return the pump/res to its original place of infront of the GPU

I may be able to find smaller alternative screws that do fit without touching the pump (wish I had thought of that earlier!)

Does anyone know if the frame of the Luxe is made of aluminum or steel? i am getting some better LED light strips and i wonder if a magnetic strip will stick to the frame of the Luxe?

Just curious, why did Phantek change their nice and complete specifications chart to the dinky grossly half asped thing now on their website? It's a huge step backwards in my opinion. frown.gif

From this old thing to what ciarlatano posted above.
