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.

Thanks!

I wont use any other storage than my SSD in that build. All my files are on 4TB External LAN disks. Is it rly a big performance gain when I let the HDD cages inside (but don't put any disks in) and put 2 x 120mm fans behind it? So I got 2 x 140mm front INTAKE and right behind it the 2 x 120mm fans to push the air faster to the GPU?

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.

First of all thanks for your very detailed reply. This is the 3rd forum where I tried to get some help and the first I actually GET help smile.gif

I think I will take your advices with that and I will go for the Luxe. The "problem" is I rly want a very silent system and i had 5x 140 mm NF-A14 in my system before. But with the 2 fans on the AiO at full 1200 rpm my system was too loud for my needs :/ I know I'm sensitive in terms of that^^

Then I replaced 2 of them (from the Corsair Radiator) for the bequiet and let them run on full speed and my other 3 NF-A14 I run at 900 rpm and now my system is rly silent while I just got my CPU 1-2° hotter after changing the fans.

The only thing I could maybe do is putting my NF-A14 back on the Radiator when I get the nex Luxe Case and manage them all to 900-1000rpm with the FAN Hub from the case or am I wrong there?

Thanks again for your awesome help smile.gif

You'll see the best performance by removing both HDD cages altogether & letting the 2x140mm fans pull air directly into the case. By doing that & attaching the SSD to the mount behind the motherboard tray, you'll be much better off than I am with one of the cages still installed.
As far as fan control goes, I'm running my CPU fans off the motherboard, & my case fans off a Reeven fan controller between 900 & 1050rpm depending on fan model & location. I tested the PWM to 3-pin hub that came with the case, & it seemed to just put everything at full speed despite being on a PWM header. I'm not sure whether mine is faulty or just incompatible with my motherboard. I never pursued it further as I already owned the fan controller at that point and I'm happy with the cooling & noise levels of my existing setup.

Thank you!

I got similar feedback from my boss at work tongue.gif. I actually have a Lunar White XBOne controller to go with it biggrin.gif. My PS4 controllers just happen to sit there normally tongue.gif.

And I've been looking at the mod to do it from the Titan thread. I'm a little apprehensive do it for warranty purposes. One being I went with Asus, and two being I haven't been able to stress the card just yet to make sure nothing is out-of-whack with it.

I was actually thinking of making this build the one I choose to do a custom loop with, but I'm not sure just yet. I really love the way it look so far tongue.gif.

Curently have a H440 and was thinking about getting the Evolve ATX Tempered glass. Any idea if the cooling is better on the Evolve ATX than the H440 in terms of air flow?

With the same fans there is likely little-to-no difference. Perhaps a bit better with the Evolv, as there aren't drive cages in the way of the intake fans.

Not going to lie - quiet and adequate performance is very hard to get with a CLC. One thing I will point out is that the F140SP included with the case have a very low startup speed, which is great for absolute lowest noise at low loads. But, if you are happy with your current setup, no reason not to use it.

Ohh that is disappointing. I liked the looks but can't justify the upgrade if there is no improved air flow. frown.gif

this person seems happy with the switch. even mentions better airflow and temps. I know the cpu temp should be better. the H440's top exhaust with a radiator sucks. I switched from H440 to the Luxe mainly for that reason.
