I too wish they had made it 8mm longer...

Quoting this as it's related to my previous post and this one.

I had ordered the ASUS Rampage V Edition 10 motherboard, and the Phanteks Evolv ATX TG case.

As we know, the Evolv ATX cases only "support" 264mm wide motherboards. The motherboard I ordered is 272mm wide, so, again, wishing the case had an extra 8mm of clearance.

Now, today, I tried installing the motherboard into the case. As it is now, it definitely won't fit. BUT, if I take off the backplate (and LED lighting/controller) of the RVE10 motherboard, it then fits. It covers approximately half of the grommet, and does bottom out to the grommet. But, if the grommets are true rubber they shouldn't really conduct. I'm considering putting a layer of electrical tape along the back of the board just to prevent it from causing any damage. I don't have pictures yet, but, from my experience 272mm wide motherboards will work with the case. With a big of thinking/working.

I'll post more pictures later.


I'm also considering leaving the backplate and LED's/controller on the back of the board, and getting taller motherboard standoffs. If I were to change ut the middle colum of standoffs to be about 2-4mm taller, and then the third row of standoffs to be 5-7mm taller, it would likely allow me to catch enough threads (at the very least, but most likely actually catch fully into the standoff). The only thing holding me back from this method is radiator compatibility, since I'll be installing a top mounted radiator, and it might case clearance issues. Also, it makes mounting into PCI brackets a bit more difficult with the motherboard being offset so. More to come soon,

This is really sad news for me. I had been looking forward to a positive report from you.

I definitely do not want to have to take off the backplate and LED lighting/controller, which I have paid good $ for.
What if the rubber grommets are removed? Would that help at all?

I had thought about using longer standoffs, but wondered how the motherboard i/o shield would fit into and with the case. It seems like it would be set at an angle. Not sure if it would be enough to notice or make any difference.

Does your experience line up with and look like the pics I posted in message: http://www.overclock.net/t/1418637/official-case-phanteks-case-club-for-lovers-owners/13870#post_25286174 ?
The builder said he didn't screw down the motherboard until he had put the 24pin through the grommet hole. It looks like a very tight fit, with 1/2 of the grommets covered by the motherboard, but he said it's working for him, so...

I am hoping you can report a similar positive report as you move forward!

And I'm not just saying that because I did it......

Kids go Evolv. Real men go Primo.

No seriously, the Evolv looks very nice but I need somewhere to stash my 360 and 420 rads. Evolv ain't gonna cut it.

I started off in the Primo with a 420mm UT60 and RX360, and kept downsizing as Phanteks released cases, while downsizing the loop accordingly. Running far more rad than I needed was fun for a bit, but just too much work to do maintenance on. My last reconfiguration was to keep the loop as simple and clean as possible, while still maintaining cooling capabilities. With just a 4790K and 780 (will be a 1070 when they become more readily available) in the loop, a single 360GTS does everything I need - I had another 240 in but took it out and saw basically no rise in temps.

What ciarlatano said. I too started with Primo .. still have it but it's not in use now. While it's a fantastic case it is just too big for my needs. I changed from Primo to Enthoo Luxe and love it. I'm not giving up my Enthoo Luxe, but added an Enthoo ATX to computer 'stable'.

Depends on what you want I guess. I want my loop quiet. I struggle to keep at 10c delta with my fx 8320 and a single r9 290 cooled by one 360 UT60.

I prefer <1000 rpm fans
