post #13951 of 19369
hi guys, i'm looking for upgrade my air 540 with a phanteks case.. maybe the new evolve glass edition that looks stunning.

could someone provide me the internal measurament ? i need, at least, put inside a 360x60mm radiator. right now in the air i can put one 360x60mm with push fan anche one 240x45mm radiator in push-pull configuration.

Don't know if you've seen it but they have quite a bit of info about what fits here in "Specs" tab, but doesn't give radiator thickness.

Yes, that rad combo will fit, and you can do which ever you like in the front or top.

great ! are u sure that i can fit a 60mm thick radiator on top, plus fan it will be about 85mm thick, without problems with other component like cpu waterblock, ram and so on ?

Hello!

I will get a Phanteks Luxe next week to replace my Corsair 780t which is waaaay to big for my needs.

My System:

- i7-5820k w/ AiO Corsair h110i GTX top exhaust
- GTX 980Ti Super Jetstream
- 16GB Corsair RAM
- 1000w Corsair PSU
- 1x 500gb SSD (4TB on external HD)

I need help with 2 questions:

1) Will the Phanteks Luxe have better/worse/similar cooling performance than my corsair 780t?
2) How should I setup my fans? I would do it like I had it on my 780t:

- 2 x 140mm Front INTAKE
- 1 x 140mm Back EXHAUST
- 2 x 140mm Top EXHAUST (on Radiator of my H110i GTX)
- OPTIONAL: 1 x 140mm Top EXHAUST (since its possible to mount 3 140mm in the Luxe)

Is that good or too much Exhaust for the Intake? Should I get 2 extra 120mm for the cages behind the Front Intake fans? Or maybe bottom INTAKE 120mm fans?

Thank you for you help guys I rly need it smile.gif

1. Performance will be similar to a touch better in terms of airflow, provided you change out the stock front 200mm to a pair of good quality 140mm.

2. The setup you describe is correct excepting your "optional". If you are going to add another fan, it should be on the floor of the case as an intake. This will help to provide cool air to the GPU, and add more intake to keep up with the high rpm fans of the CLC.

Thanks for your reply!

I will replace the 200mm with 2 Noctua NF-A14 FLX fans. I replaced the 2 stock Corsair fans of my AiO with 2 beQuiet Silent wings 2. I wanted to have a quiet yet good performing system smile.gif

Will it be enough though to have "Just" the 2 140mm NF-A14 as INTAKE and 1 NF-A14 as EXHAUST paired with the 2 SIlent Wings as Exhaust too? All my fans are running at 900-1000 rpm

And one question came to my mind too. Is the Evolve ATX same/better/worse than the Enthoo Luxe? I'm leaning towards the Luxe but I'm not sure yet because the Evolv ATX might get very hot when I got the Corsair AiO as EXHAUST top?

Thanks

Great workmanship as always, Bill!

Very awesome Bill. Your mods and builds are the bomb! I'm a huge trekkie also so I love it just that much more.

Whether the 2 front intake fans will be sufficient in the Luxe is partially dependent on which HDD cages you leave installed. If you're just running SSDs, you can remove both of them. If you still have 3.5" drives, you'll want to leave one in. In my case, the PSU cable lengths forced me to use the upper cage to power everything. As such, I'm also running a 120mm on the back of the cage & one on the bottom towards the front. I think it would've been less of an issue had I been able to us the bottom HDD cage instead, as a good portion of my unobstructed airflow is aimed under the PSU shroud as is. As far as the Evolv ATX vs. the Luxe, it really depends on what you want out of it. The Luxe is a much bigger case, but also much more flexible. You can have 5.25" drives in the Luxe, & the removable filter makes it easier to work in the top area. With a single GPU & a 280mm CLC, I doubt you'd notice much difference in cooling ability between the cases.

You will be fine with what you have described above in the Luxe. However....were it me.....I would be inclined to use the SW2 as intake and the NF-A14 on the H110i. This is simply because the SW2 have notoriously bad static pressure when used on rads, and that rad is as restrictive as they get. The NF-A14 would perform a bit better on the rad at similar speed/noise levels, while the SW2 will do nicely as intakes. And....the wild card for you....the two F140SP included with the Luxe would probably have the best noise/performance on the rad of any of the fans mentioned. They would actually be the best choice for your rad in that scenario, with the Nocs as intake and exhaust.

The Evolv ATX gets a little tricky, and will likely run a little warmer than the Luxe with your setup. With the added restriction of the Luxe, you would definitely need to lose the SW2 in favor of something with better static pressure. You could very simply use the two F140SP that are included for intakes in the Evolv on your H110i and move your two NF-A14 to the front as intake - again, using the F140SP becomes part of your best configuration. You would also need to isolate the front and rear of the rad - in other words, fill the open space in the rad mount, which is easily done with damping material, tape, cardboard, plastic sheets....I use 3M self-adhesive damping material, it takes about 2 minutes to do the job and you can't see it.

After I could no longer deal with the size of the Primo, I spent a long time debating between the Evolv ATX and the Luxe. I was fortunate that I had both on hand at the time, so I got to do some first hand fitting and trials. I went with the Evolv ATX, but my build is much different than yours and a lot of my decision came down to things like the res I wanted to use fitting cleanly in front of the GPUs, pump mounting location, etc, which are obviously nothing that will be relevant to you. If I was doing a build similar to yours, I would have used the Luxe without question.
