if you mean is the rear panel opaque, blacked out, like on the 760T, no, you can see right through both panels.

In evolv atx, if you have front and top radiators,how do you keep your temps low?

In my situation front 280ce, top 360pe and temps in the case are like 7-8 degrees higher idle (after using a little chrome, little youtube etc) than my ambient temperature. While gaming it gets to 15 degrees difference in the case itself. Cooling 6700k and 1080gtx. Both OC. Vardar fans on 360, phanteks on 280.

On idle fans are on minimum vardar around 800rpm, phanteks around 550rpm. During gaming fans are running- vardar around 1400, phanteks around 1100. Both cpu and GPU get to around 55C. Radiators temperature is approx 40C while gaming (checked with IR thermometer).

What is your ambient temp?

Rear, top, front which is exhaust or intake?
Have you seal the top to prevent excess heat going back in case?

Front in, top out. With 360 on top there is not much to seal also from reading earlier in the thread it looks like it matters the most with 240/280 top mounted rads.


I'm starting to think that with this case,lowering case temps might be more beneficial than second radiator in the front. Maybe changing the setup to use just top radiator, in front two 140 fans, try to squeeze back exhaust fan as well. Second radiator doesn't give advantage with case temps like this.

Agreed.
With the warm air inside the top radiator won't cool much.
30c inside the case would be ok.. but 38 is a bit much indeed under load.

Can you mod the bottom to place an extra intake fan?
Just thinking outside the box here. Don't know your setup.


I do struggle with the same thing:
Fresh intake vs radiator heat inside the case.

I hope my top 420 will cool properly with the air coming in from the bottom 360 radiator and (2x) front 140 intake.

Look at the diagram too see exactly what areas to seal. All that extra open space the heat from the rad will just get recycled back in the rad and case.

Air temp inside of case being 7-8c above room at idle? That is not really much difference, especially with dual radiators requiring one function as intake. Neither is 15c when gaming a big difference.
Radiator IR reading is the surface temp of fin/core tube, so not of much use.

What Sp33d Junki3 said. thumb.gif
You do need block all opening in top radiator tray that are not covered by radiator? These let the heated air coming out of radiator back into case if not blocked off.

You can remove the top by taking out 2x screws in back that attach the plastic piece between top and back panel to back panel. there are 2x more in the front behind the front panel, just pop off front panel to access them.

Edit:
It does not take many small holes leaking heated air back into cooler area to make it a few degrees warmer. Think of these holes as little heaters blowing warm air into your room. tongue.gif

Radiators are not near as reactive to intake air temp changes to component temps as air coolers. While air coolers react almost 1:1, radiators react at a much higher ratio. Especially in real water cooling systems where the coolant flow rate is what it should be.

Just finished tu put my rig inside my new pro m (acrylic windowed), added 2 120mm white spectres at the top, they are dead silent, but original 140 fans are a bit loud at 12v, need to regulate them.
