Oh I see, my mistake. On the Evolv, are you able to move the two 140mm intakes closer to the top? Would this be better for airflow for the gpu and cpu? Unless of course it's better to have front fans in taking air at the bottom of the front vs top of the front. If I do end up going with the Evolv, what other final tips and tricks or fan set ups would you recommend to better my Evolv atx? Lastly, just to confirm, the Evolv ATX is 100% filtered at all intake vents/ openings right?

Kind regards!!!!

Not much, about 20mm or 21mm, also there's some hardware up there for the pwr button housing.

Yes, you can move the front fans up, I did that because the intake path is less obstructed.

As for other ideas, you can see my build log and other comments about how i've set mine up.

very interesting how you blocked air going up to the upper vents. what sort of improvements did you see in temps?

It was a while ago that I did this so it's hard to remember exactly. Old notes suggest 2 or 3c difference at idle and sounds like a larger difference under load. Putting that cardboard up there made a good difference.

My plan is to close off the back gap and narrow the front so only the very front can be drawn up top to feed the rad intake and be blown back down.

I think I can see the effects of re-circulation at idle too. With front cover popped off, core temps range from 27 to 29c, put the cover back on and it's 29 to 32c. So warmer air from inside the case is being drawn thru the rad instead of 100% cool air from outside.
...

Blocking off the gaps in those locations only makes sense if the air is flowing down thru the rad. If you have air flowing up thru the rad, blocking the front gap and leaving the back gap open would probably make more sense.

are you still running this setup? i have the same case and realised that air flow isn't that great. when my gpu heats up, the whole system just heats up and it doesnt seem to dissipate too well. got a h110igtx working as exhaust. 3x120 jetlo running at full 3000rpm and the stock case rear fan. i'll give the tip for popping out the front panel a try, the guy at the pc workshop near me did say that the top panel should've been made with a open filter at the top to allow for better airflow. not too sure how i'd take making holes in the top and front panels lol

am contemplating putting my 980ti under water at some point, i live in a hot country so it doesnt help temps. its >30C all year round here. but thats a hefty investment and there's just no way round that so its a hard decision to make.

I have a question for anyone who owns an Enthoo Luxe (black). I am very interested in getting this case, however something is bugging me. In all the pictures I have seen of it, the sand blasted aluminum front panel looks (at least to me) like cheap plastic. For those who own or have seen one of these up close does it actually look this way, or is it just the camera/s.

Does adding spacers to the front panel really contribute to lower temps for the cpu and gpu and by how much if so? I really am interested in the Evlov ATX but it's kind of a turn off knowing that I would need to somewhat mod it to have better performance (like adding spacers to open up the front more).

This was a 15min RealBench stresstest run, so 100% cpu and gpu load. Where the red hand drawn arrow is, I popped the bottom of the front panel out and propped it open a little. The MOBO temp (yellow) started going down shortly thereafter. The PCH temp (fusia) was threatening to go up another degree, but reversed course and came back down instead. So air temps in the case cooled off right after propping the panel open.

The CPU temps are not so affected because the airflow is arranged to push cool air thru the radiator (see pics in the build log). Prior to those airflow arrangements, CPU temps were more affected by interior case air temps.



The Evolv is a real nice case and I personally wouldn't trade it in for a Luxe. I like the looks of it and I like putting stuff on top of my case.
