What issue did you run into mounting a Predator 240 up top of an Evolv ATX? The rear fan shouldn't interfere at all. I know the Predator has some mounting quirks, but I just can't figure out where there would be an issue.

Either I misunderstood or you did. I thought he's doing the predator 360. With theach 360 it touches the rear fan and front panel.you either remove the fan or jam it to fit

Ah, ok. The discussion has been about the 240, not the 360. That's why I couldn't figure out how there was a mounting issue.

How loud is that "on the louder side" if I may ask? smile.gif

Here is what the Phanteks website says regarding the specs of the Pro M (both Acrylic and non-Acrylic) Motherboard Support: E-ATX *(up to 264mm wide), ATX, Micro ATX, Mini ITX.
I'm sitting on the opposite side of the fence. I haven't tried it either, but because of the bend (as you mention in your post quoted above) it doesn't look like 272mm is going to fit.
However, I really hope I'm wrong! I hope someone will post here who has actual experience with the Pro M or the Evolv ATX (which I'm more interested in).
The Corsair Carbide 400c will fit an E-ATX case (according to the specs listed on the Corsair site here: http://www.corsair.com/en-us/carbide-series-clear-400c-compact-mid-tower-case). It's pretty small (425mm x 215mm x 464mm) and many seem to like it (it gets from lukewarm to very good reviews).
Hope that helps...
While talking with one of Phantek's designers and he told me 272mm fits, but published 264mm because of the grommet. But please feel free to do whatever you want. thumb.gif

So, does this mean it fits but touches/partially covers the grommet? I'd be okay with that.

That was kind of the plan. Cut out possibly a small rectangle. But if what doyll said holds true, I won't need to!

That should fit perfectly. You should be able to keep the bottom HDD mounts as well. Newegg has pretty quick stock refreshes. My order went through 3 days after it went out of stock

IDK... ~15%. My test wasn't exactly scientific. I just mounted 6 fans and run them off the PSU. The define front panel doors an exceptional job of learning the from fan noise. I noticed I could hear the fans in the Evolv a little more.

I'm installing sound deadening material all around. An acoustic consulting company (seems legit?) I called actually recommended sponge neoprene. Super cheap vs normal sound deadening material.

This is good news then as the mobo I'm interested in is 272mm wide and I really like the Evolv ATX.

It's not the grommets you need to worry about, it's the motherboard traces or solder joints/points, etc. (on the backside of the board) coming into contact with the metal of the case. At least, that's what I'm given to understand.
