I agree with @PureBlackFire. The Evolv ATX had much better airflow than the H440 when I tested them.

What is the best AIO rad solution for Evolv ATX (Tempered Glass)? 240 or 360? And what is the best position for mounting?

The Swiftech H220/240/320-X2. Only thing even remotely close would be the EK Predator. Mounted up top as EXHAUST.

I would NOT recommend the 240X2 up top. Your RAM clearance will be very tight. If you have another radiator, I would suggest front mounting the Swiftech.

Also of you have the extra budget, get the Prestige edition as it comes with Noiseblocker fans.

The 240-X2 should clear the RAM slots completely, unless your MB is really odd. I had a UT60+fans in with Patriot Viper Div 4 and had no issues, and that is a good 15mm+ larger than the 240-X2. I don't think you would even have an issue with the ridiculous old Kingston RAM with the X2. Front mounting is great.....if your goal is to roast a chicken on your air cooled GPU's VRM. tongue.gif

I suppose that it's not going to be a problem according to this build for example : https://pcpartpicker.com/b/b37hP6

That is a 240mm, the H240-X2 is a 280mm. The H240-X2 is many people's go-to. It is only $10 more MSRP than the H220-X2 (which is 240mm), but performs just about on par with the H320-X2 (which is 320mm), but puts the res in a very visible location in the window.

Swiftech's naming scheme is number of fans (1, 2, or 3 as the first digit), size of fan (20 for 120, 40 for 140mm) and series (current being X2). So, an H140-X would be a single 140mm, H240 would be dual 140mm, H220 dual 120mm, H320 triple 120mm.

Thanks! That's very informative smile.gif On what position on top is the best to put that AIO? Closer to the front or closer to the back?

Closer to the rear, as that is where the venting is. Also, in the Evolv ATX, it is very important that you isolate the radiator. The rad mount is cut for a 320mm, so you need to fill the space to keep the air from recirculating. It is simply done, I like the 3M self-adhesive damping material, but you can use tape, cardboard, plastic, etc. You simply need to keep the rad exhaust from blowing back down into the case rather than out the exhaust.
