i've got 3x120mm jetflos at full speed as intake, 1x140mm stock case fan in rear, and a h110i gtx with stock fans as exhaust.

was wondering if putting more fans within the case would help?
I don't own a Evolv, but I want one.

Full system description please. We can't hekp without know what everything is. wink.gif

I would be using stock PH-F140SP fans in front.
But I wouldn't be using H110, but a good air cooler.

The coach is a nice model, but build accuracy is poor. Wheels are very poor representation of real ones. Maybe I'm too critical. I've repaired and used real coaches and other era buggies and wagons.
While I can appreciate all the work involved, I do not see the logic behind it. As a decorations the coach is nice. As a computer case it is a dust collecting ill cooling mess.

Hello,
Happy owner of a mATX Evolv, I would watercool my rig (I7 6700K + R9 390x Sapphire).
However I am disappointed by the possibilities of the case because I would like to heep at least one HDD securing it on the side plate. But it conflicts with the top radiator.
Is there a solution without modding the case?
Plus, Does someone know the space available for the front radiator when there is a DDC pump installed in the background ?

Thanks

Not sure where you have been mounting a 3.5" HDD where it could conflict with a top rad, do you mind taking a picture?

It depeneds on what GPU you have as to how big a rad will fit. I also have a 290X (reference style, the triX model) and a 45mm *should* fit if just doing push but it'll be cutting it fine, I put a 30mm rad in the front of mine. If you should be fine getting a DDC down in the basement with a 30mm rad, if using the pump mount that came with the case, but I think you'll struggle to get a pump/res combo down there, as whilst fine did fit I couldn't use the top port due to GPU interference.

Also regarding front rads be careful on the width of the rad, I put a 240mm Black Ice Nemesis GTS240 in the front, but had to do a bit of dremeling due to the width, just something to keep in mind, so emasure before you buy!

EDIT: You could either get a 2.5" HDD and mount it behind the mobo, I have a WD green 2.5" 2TB drive there, alternatively you might be able to just mount one below the mobo/on top of the PSU

Thank you for help.

The 3.5" hdd will be installed, as shown on the manual, on the multifonctionnal side bracket. I already try with my Lepa aquacomputer and it conflict with it. I'm not home so I can't attach a picture.

The graphic card is the Tri-X version, but will be watercooled with the alphacool GPX WB.

I could buy a new 2.5" hdd, but for that price I could resell the evolv and buy a better case too.
And if I buy new HDD it will be to build a NAS tongue.gif

Ah I also have that GPU and block, I dont use the side bracket personally but could you just not mount it lower down the bracket?

Also you should try mounting underneath the GPU or behind the PSU, both should be easily mounted with double sided tape or velcro tape if you dont want to mod the case.

Anyone modded the top/front of the evolv case to add more airflow? Thinking about dremeling out the front+top and adding a grill mesh / makeshift dust filter for it and wanted to see if anyone had done it before.

I know it has been said by some here that adding spacers to have the front sit about an inch forward does wonders. I have an EVOLV ATX, and see almost no measurable difference with the front on or off - no real airflow issues at all.
