Looking at this monster of a case here with 12 fans currently running and two rads on top makes me question whether or not this is that fine line that separates performances from aesthetics. biggrin.gif I am almost considering not returning the case and staying with it. But is huge! lol .... I need to do something about the wiring if I keep it.

On a side note i do like the Pro M and with the full temper glass not bad for the price. Anyways, I guess I have some thinking to do and if I end up keeping the Core X9 then I better keep it for a very long time. biggrin.gif

Also, there is a Tempered Glass version of the Pro M coming out thumb.gif. They showed it off at Computex.

Nice but I need a case soon so I can't wait for it. XD Would be cool to own one but not sure if I got the acrylic version of the temper glass can be replaced on it.

I actually confirmed this with Phanteks support a few days ago. That's actually what I'm planning to do once they release. They said the TG panel will be available for upgrade a couple weeks after release of the TG version thumb.gif.

Hey all,

So I plan to pick up a new Evolv ATX glass edition (making the switch from my Luxe) and I want to water cool this one.

I have two possible scenarios planned out that I'd greatly appreciate some feedback on.

Scenario 1:
  • Top = 240 or 280mm (not thick, 30-45)
  • Front = 360 (also normal 30-40 thickness)
  • Relocate my single 3.5" drive to PSU compartment with mount


Scenario 2:
  • Top = 240 or 280mm (not thick, 30-45)
  • Front = 240 or 280mm (not thick, 30-45)
  • Maintain normal 3.5" space


Ideally this will be completed with a 1080 or 1080ti, depending on whenever this is finally completed. I'm not 100% sure as to what kind of tubing to go with just yet.

I've created a mock up of my 1st scenario below:


Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I only have 3 fans plugged into the onboard fan controller now and they are working fine. So strange.

The Phanteks fan controller is only good for about 30w of draw (total) so maybe you were overloading it?

If you are going to do a 360, do it on top. One quirk with the Evolv ATX is the restrictive top combined with the radiator mounting tray - this makes it necessary to seal off the open areas of the tray to isolate the back and front of the rad, otherwise it simply recirculates the air exhausted from the rad. While you can do it with a 240mm or 280mm (self adhesive vibration damping material works well, takes only a few minutes and is inexpensive), it is far easier with a 360mm. Also, the 360mm on top looks far better in the case than a 240 or 280mm up top, while a 240 or 280 look just fine in the front.

Thanks for the advice, that is extremely helpful.

I'm looking at Alphacool's Xflow radiators, just to clean up the lines a bit. Revised mock up below as per the recommendation:



Any suggestions for a retailer or brand of that material? Also do you think 45 is a ok thickness? I know we can fit a 60 (top) and a typical ~30 would certainly cut it but I gather a 45 would be the best of both worlds.

Thanks again.

Some more info from Primo owners here?

How does a 360 fit in the bottom? I've read that the 3th fan doesn't get proper flow from the bottom. Is a shroud needed?

And can I fit a 420 up top while still using at least 1 5,25 bay? I have a fan controller smile.gif

This should help you a bit - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfLJfP0XyaE
60mm rads with fans overhang the CPU block.

I believe this was the 3M material I used - http://www.amazon.com/3M-38500-19-11-Sound-Reduction/dp/B009XR48MM/

Wow I didn't even know they came out with x-flow radiators! That would have cleaned up the tubing from the cpu to my top rad so much!

I'll get some pics of my 420 up top when I get home. You'll be fine with a fan controller. Surprisingly you should be able to fit a few depending on tube routing.
