Oh man, I don't want to sound lazy but I'm gonna spend over 180EUR for Evolv ATX and again I have to mod something to get better airflow, that is so exhausting.
My plans are two SSD's and two HDD's. AIO on top with pull config. I would like to see more photos of setups in this case here...

Up on the top right of the page, hit "show all" under recent images. There is an insane number of photos of Pro, Luxe and Evolv pics.

And the "mod" takes about 10 minutes if you only use one hand.

Well, the H240-X2 is a lot better looking than that Corsair....but, essentially, yes.

Yeah I agree but now I'm watching Dimitri's video about this case and just noticed some new user experience comments in which he claims that Fractal Define R5 is more silent than Evolv ATX... I would like to know more about this case acoustics. This is the best looking case I've ever seen so far. Evolv ATX Silver version is just too classy for all other cases on the market today. (side note: not this one in the video)

I don't agree. I have used the R5, also. The only reason it is quieter out of the box is because it comes with fans that move very little air. Also, one you remove the Moduvents for the top rad, the R5 has more direct fan noise from that....so the Evolv ATX winds up being quieter for what you are looking to do.

And, yes, the silver is great looking. I also happen to like the gunmetal in the video just as much, but that is all personal preference.

Anyone know which is the best phanteks case for air cooling? I have a NH-D15 for my 4770k and SLI'd 980ti non-reference cards(blowing inside the case)

Primarily choosing between Primo and Evolv ATX. No plans to watercool.

Should I look at another brand for my needs?

What kind of mods you guys have done to Enthoo Evolv ATX top panel when using top mounted rads?... I have been rolling without the top panel for couple weeks now since temperatures will drop like 10-15c when you remove it... I just ordered Phobya 360 Hexx grill and will dremel top panel and fit that there (should be the same temperatures after that vs completely removed). Will post some pictures when i get the grill and have done the mod.

The anthracite / gun metal gray is a really nice cooler. Hides dust much better than black too. Much richer lookng than bare aluminum .. at least to me.

I've just about figured out all the bits to raise the top 6-10mm and space the front out the same. Can get spacers and screws from eBay for around £5.00.

I agree with ciarlatano, the Define D5 may be slightly quieter even with different fans. But overall how quiet a system is has more to do with components and fans than the case. A case is like a muffler on a car. While it can block noise with it's solid parts, openings (like the muffler's intake and exhauust) transmit the noise out of the case. The fact most of these openings in a case are vents with fans in them means the fan noise is usually the biggest source of sound coming from the system.
