~$200 CLC.....oof. doh.gif

if you are looking for the better case, the Pro M acrylic is clearly a far better case. If ease of LED control is a larger priority than than case quality and features, then get the P400.

I just dont know what case to buy.. I live in portugak btw
I think pez and ciarlatano have answered your initial questions.
P400 is really an entry level case and has almost no options. Things like more and better case fans, PWM to variable voltage fan hub, etc that are included in may of next level up cases. I use and build so many I can't remember exactly what comes with what. I find Phanteksusa.com site easier to use then Phanteks.com site.
Any others, please feel free to ask.

First of all, awesome thread and stunning creations. Didn’t expect to find a thread about this case with a whopping 1379 pages redface.gif I’m planning a pc upgrade and the only thing that I’m 100% sure about is the case wink.gif Will stick with the “old” version though without the full glass panels. For the moment I have a Corsair Obsidian 700d. Best case I ever owned ......

Welcome to the club. We will all be here waiting to hear the thud when you lose consciousness upon receiving your Evolv ATX. The difference coming from a Corsair case is going to put you in a state of shock.

A couple of quick comments on components:

1. Spend the little bit extra on the Sabertooth. It is worth every penny.
2. EVGA has arguably the best PSUs on the market in their P2 series and offer sleeved kits for them in a number of colors. If I were buying a PSU today, this would be in my cart without a thought.
3. An H115i? With Swiftech and EK AiO's on the market? Do a little digging in the Swiftech and EK clubs here. Buying a CLC in 2016 is like paying $400 for a Motorola brick phone with a two year contract. The Swiftech and EK offer better performance, far lower noise, expandability, the ability to customize and are far better looking.

Thinking of go with Push pull on it, with 4 Noctua A14 FLX, and then a stock fan on the exhaust only.. What do you think?

Or should i get the Pro M? The thing is, the Pro M doesn't support LED control, so i cant connect a phanteks led strip to it...

yes, the H110iGT will fit in the P400

will the temps be higher, maybe, maybe not. cpu temp wouldn't be, if anything the motherboard and gpu a little. but with the top and rear exhaust it shouldn't have a lingering heat issue. the Pro M Acrylic (because they may as well discontinue the regular Pro M already) is a larger, more flexible case, but the P400 should be fine. funny, I hated the P400 when it was announced, now it doesn't look so bad. better than my S340 at the same price, same rad mounting, heck a bit better if you're using a thick rad in front, than the $100 CM Mastercase (non Pro).

Doyll and ciarlatano have mentioned that equipping the Evolv ATX with a couple 140s in the front and a single 140 in the rear will do wonders. They will both advise against the Corsair AIO cooler tongue.gif. A tower cooler with that fan setup should keep temps down and your system quiet. Everything else looks pretty good, though the 980Ti won't do ultrawide the greatest unless you're ok with adjusting some settings thumb.gif.

To complete the build I guess the 1080 is the icing on the cake smile.gif. Just finding it hard to justify selling this beast of a card which still performs quite good.

thx alot for your help!

1. -> Ok, will do sir smile.gif
2. This shows my lack of knowledge of pc components anno 2016 smile.gif My "decent" PSU list is still limited to "Corsair, Enermax, Antec, .." Definitely will have a look at your proposal!
3. THX!!! helps me a LOT

I like the Pro M Acrylic better than the P400. The thing is, the P400 have lighting system included in the case, so i can just buy a 1 Meter phanteks led strip, and i can connect it to the case and im good to go.

The pro M doesn't have lighting system, i dont know why... So if i buy the Pro M, i will have to buy a led strip from bit fenix or something, they are a lot more expensive, and i have to connect it to the power suply...

it think if you can get the LED connector that comes in the Evolv tempered glass it can connect to the pro M's reset button. the I/O panel in the Evolv ATX and pro M is identical just like they share the same chassis. maybe contact Phanteks support and ask about the LED connector or the evolv's front I/O panel for the Pro M. longshot.

I don't think they can give me that, so I think there is no point of even asking...

Not a longshot at all. I purchased the front I/O for the Luxe from Phanteks as a part for next to nothing - if I recall it was like $8. I bought it with the intention of using the LED control portion for my Evolv ATX, but then decided against LEDs.

I've found Phanteks customer support to be pretty helpful. Give them a quick call. It likely won't take long, & you might be pleasantly surprised.
