Exactly what I have been saying. It would also be more cost effective.

You think a predator 360 would fit if you put the pump side to the rear fan instead? (that way you would only lose one 5.3" bay (hopefully))

There is also the issue of it hitting the mobo vrm heatsink and or blocking/hitting into the cpu power connector though it seems like you just have enough clearance.

I would not recommend the 360 rad unless you put it up front. But not on top of the case. The 240 was just enough room for it to fit accordingly. It worked out great.

Yeah I will leave 20 or so cm clearance on the right.

I know. But I also need to place the amp of my Edifier C3X next to my case. Can highly recommend that 2.1 set though, good quality for it's price IMO. Much more pleasent noise compared to Logitech speakers.


Side note:
Which speed do you think I need to set my d5 at?

Running:
- ek supremacy evo
- ek 290x fullcover block
- UT60 360
- ek CE 420

Should speed 3 be sufficient?

I have 3x 120mm on top right now, I can push these fans further to the front to allow even more room for the pump/res/tubing to the rear of the case. I cant put it in the front as only 2x 140mm, 2x 120x will fit (I would also lose all the drive bays)



Can you by any chance upload a few close up pics of the clearance?

To all the Evolv ATX TG owners: Is the glass on the sidepanels tinted in any way? Like Corsair does for example? If the glass is full clear and untinted, I might finally retire my Air 540 biggrin.gif

How much compared to an Air 540? Can't find a decent comparison..

I haven't handled an Air 540 before but from what I saw on a few videos, it looks to be similar maybe slightly darker. It's a mild tint.

I'll say this, I was figuring that I was going to want to tint the cable management side panel. However after getting it yesterday I think I'm going to run it for a while before doing anything.

It's a mild tint. Certainly less than something like the Define R4 Blackout.
